Maiello: Gatsby Doesn't Grate
Earlier this week, I noted that no one had yet gone over the line and scapegoated the mentally ill.
I have just finished reading Wayne LaPierre's remarks, and I'm here to let you know that Wayne has done just that: put out the cat's paw or trial balloon to scapegoat the mentally ill:
Page 3, first paragraph:
"A dozen more killers? A hundred? More? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill?"
And does it surprise anyone that the solution proposed by the NRA for the children sets up more corporate welfare in the form of private security agencies gaining access to milk from the leathered tit of the military industrial gorgon?
Roll that first thing around a bit: suck out some of the flavor from that bad boy, m'kay?
