NAACP wants to shoot the messenger at NRA convention

But why is that wrong? What do "acres of guns," to be seen by scores of thousands of America's scores of millions of peaceable gun owners, have to do with the one gun that a teenager tragically chose to threaten police with?

The answer, perhaps, is that Reverend Rice is very much on board with a 17-year-old campaign by Attorney General (then U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia) Eric Holder to "brainwash" the people--particularly young people, and especially particularly young, black males--against guns. Holder at that time suggested his own message--that guns are "something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun." The idea of vast numbers of people coming from all over the country to see "acres of guns" clearly challenges that brainwashing. [More]
