What Did I Tell You

On July 20, in the aftermath of the shootings in Aurora, I wrote:

But you can be sure that before sundown the NRA will be out with a fund-raising letter saying that this horrible event will be just the excuse the Obama administration will use to take away all our guns.

I was off by three days.

Three days after a gunman calling himself the Joker from the Batman series shot dead 12 people in a suburban Denver movie theater, the National Rifle Association sent out a letter asking for money.

“The future of your Second Amendment rights will be at stake,” the letter said. “And nothing less than the future of our country and our freedom will be at stake.”

They could have at least waited until after the funerals.

HT to digby.
