A recent letter by Mr. Yoxtheimer once again illustrates the Alinskian method of demonizing those that have differing opinions from the left. The N.R.A. has been around for over a century with firearms education/safety/training for police, military and civilians during that time. They are merely the organization that stands up for the 2nd Amendment rights of all citizens. Just because you don't want or think you need to own a firearm at this time, doesn't mean you may not in the future. The N.R.A. will still be there to support your rights at that time, just like other organizations defend your 1st Amendment rights to write a letter to the editor.
