They rarely if ever do. It's more of a sort of benign bemusement, whether they're talking guns, Nicaraguan coffee plantations, public school riots in Paris, or cancer treatment. I always think of them of having a sort of 'huh...check this out' kind of tone.

Except for The Soise. They  always have to have the background Soise for whatever it is they're doing:

"I'm standing here in this gay llama farm..." *sound of gay llamas chortling in the background*

"Here in Bangladesh, nine year olds work 120 hour weeks..." *the sound of a nine year old working 120 weeks*

Other that The Sound, I love NPR. But I HATE The Sound...

John Buck 41: DeArmondVI: csb: I manage at a used bookstore that, for many years, had a no guns allowed sign posted up. However, after the gun crowd became even more belligerant than usual after that guy mowed down an entire 1st grade classroom we took the damn thing down.

Cut to: last week some yahoo showed up doing the whole open carry thing along with a giant knife strapped to his leg.

After multiple complaints about said yahoo, the sign went back up again.

I guess I just don't understand the need/desire to be able to kill someone while browsing some used books.

So, you work in a place with a 'No guns allowed' signs on premises. I'm sure that must be VERY comforting.


It's tough at times, I must concede. Bad guys with guns come in at least twice a day and pilfer our registers and assualt our customers.

Did you know you can kill people with your bare hands? Scary shiat.


I learned how to do that by watching "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm."

I don't advertise my lethal expertise when out and about, however (in order to avoid being treated differently due to my ultra-lethality).

Nonetheless, I'll make sure to arise to the cause whenever it may be required.

My experience is that NPR is pretty centrist in their reporting.  You have to be far, far right-wing to consider them liberal.


They are not Fox, so, by definition, they are liberal.

Liberal is anything to the left of Attila the Hun.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: NewportBarGuy: If you are a gun-owner with an IQ over 65... Why are you a member of the NRA?

Because as "extreme" as they are, what with being a single-issue lobbying group whose sole purpose is to defeat gun-control legislation, they have been extremely effective. Without them there is the strong possibility that there would be few gun owners of any IQ.

That said, I'm not a fan. There are some things that I wish they wouldn't oppose, like universal background checks. They also pissed me off by trying to settle Heller before it made the Supreme Court because they were afraid of losing. But they don't give an inch on anything, and it's paid off for them.


What exactly, is "extreme" about supporting the 2nd amendment? I joined last year just to donate some money. So far, the most "extreme" thing I have seen is them sending me emails detailing current gun legislation being put forth in my state. Without the NRA, 2nd amendment would probably be completely gone, and when that goes, other amendments have to as well (to enforce confiscation and registration laws).

NRA is absolutely dwarfed by the anti-gun lobby. Why are they not "extreme"?

zerkalo: I'm sure the NRA will have decent convention. Unless something weird happened. Like, I don't know, they paid Sarah Palin to give a speech celebrating torture. But that would never happen, would it?

Oh dear...


In my experience the people that are the loudest in their complaints about water-boarding and other methods of torture practiced by the US government are the same ones that are pro-baby murder. Somehow none of them seem to have any understanding of how hypocritical their position is on these two subjects... Harming an adult to get information is "bad", but viciously murdering a baby before it can have a real chance at life is just fine. Sorry, if you hold the latter position then you have no moral ground to stand upon regarding any subject at all.

Dimensio: violentsalvation: NewportBarGuy: If you are a gun-owner with an IQ over 65... Why are you a member of the NRA?

Because despite the chucklefarks they have as the public face, the NRA actually fights for gun rights that elected goofballs like this would take away

We do not ridicule lawmakers with absolutely no understanding of how the Internet works who attempt to regulate electronic communication and copyright.

We do not insult lawmakers with no scientific training who are put on science and technology committees.

We do not suggest that lawmakers who are demonstrably ignorant of womens' reproductive health issues have no credibility when authoring laws regulating access to abortion and birth control.

For what reason, then, do gun nuts become extremely upset when legislators who are demonstrably ignorant of fundamental firearms technology propose sweeping bans on firearms?
