Trump screws the NRA
by Dave Winer Wednesday, June 15, 2016

I have to admit Trump is doing something clever.

He's going to meet with Wayne LaPierre to suggest that he get behind an weapon ban for people on terrorist watch lists. 

It's cute because the NRA endorsed him. They pretty much have to listen.

It's irreverent. It's the tail wagging the dog. And it's probably going to work.

You know they said Nixon could go to China because he was a Republican. 

Everyone expects a Democrat to be for gun control.

But a Republican getting behind it is really subversive. Even if it is DJ Trump. And even if it doesn't go nearly far enough.

Another reason to like it is that while it won't likely get Trump any Democratic votes it sure is going to piss off a lot of Republicans, and expose them for the unthinking heartless NRA puppets that they are. I'm getting my popcorn out.
