The National Rifle Association either couldn’t take the heat or decided that advocating guns for the sightless was just a really bad idea. While the video is still online (as is practically everything else that ever existed), it is no longer available via the NRA. What a shame that such a great public service announcement has been pulled down.

    The error message needs to be changed for the NRA site, to .44 caliber error.

    They took that one down and left all the others? Why? It made just as much sense as the whole “good guy with a gun . . . . it’s all because of video games,” derp after Sandy Hook.

      Yeah, you’d think that they would have found stupid’s edge long before this.

        My mind immediately leapt to the old flat Earth map with the sign at the edge that said “Here be Monsters!” Or maybe it was dragons.

          It was dragons on one side and monsters on the other.

    “Shamed”? That I find hard to believe. The NRA has no shame.

      I agree. It must have been costing their overlords money…

    Add another count to Boehner’s unconstitutional lawsuit: ‘This is outrageous and violates the 2nd amendment for all kinds of murderers!’-LaPierre on the down low with NRA Board member Nugent.

    People with visual impairments can ski, helm yachts, fish, skate board, parachute and even run in marathons…I see no reason whatsoever why they should not be allowed to participate, in the same way, in the shooting sports.

    Why don’t some of you self-described “liberals” grow up and start acting the part?

    • Anomaly 100 August 7th, 2014 at 11:57 pm

      Because we don’t want to get shot.

        Well, perhaps make a law against that?
        Or do you intend to stand downrange waving a red cape?

          ah ha, you are just an ass – whew, for a second you seemed to be amusing but nooooo, just an ass.

    • Rusty Shackleford August 8th, 2014 at 2:12 am

      Watch those goalposts move, as the NRA has abandoned the video which was clearly and unequivocally about open-carrying firearms for self-defense, and their good little defender here attempts to reframe the conversation to instead be about “shooting sports.”

      are you kidding or are you actually the ass that your comment suggests you are???
