Schadenfreude

Remember when CNN did that misleading bit on assault weapons with the help of a law enforcement officer? Well, that officer (Broward County Sheriff Ken Jenne) is pleading to tax evasion.

Now, look here. We have our own problem children here on the pro-gun side (Gottleib’s tax trouble; Pratt’s various organizations; etc.) with such antics so careful about getting too happy. It may haunt us.

    Well, one easy solution would be to take the high road and disassociate ourselves from dishonest and manipulative scam artists like Gottleib and Pratt.

    A few years ago Gottlieb and his wife invited my wife, our kids and I to have dinner at their home with their kids. We had a really nice time with them. We liked them and their family. And they do a lot of really good work for the pro-gun rights cause. That aside, there are “skeletons in the closet” of the gun rights organizations they run but I don’t see any point in bringing them up in a public forum.

    To the best of my knowledge there are no politically effective “lily white” pro-gun organizations. They all do a significant amount of good even though they have “skeletons in the closet”.

    It is partly because of these “skeletons” that I don’t donate as much money to the big name organizations as I used to. I am a life member of the NRA and I have money taken out of my paycheck (matched by my employer) for SAF but most of my pro-gun money and efforts go into Boomershoot and my blog.

    I remembered seeing the video & was able to locate it on the NRA website. You can watch Sheriff Jenne’s “demonstration” by going to nranews.com. Click on “browse archives”, then “videos”, then “general videos”, then “Wayne LaPierre vs CNN”.
