Lies and liars
I'm still reeling from the President of the these United States saying that "...the gun lobby and its allies willfully lied about the bill...". I am an ally of the gun lobby and I do not like being called a liar, especially a willfull liar. Our own Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey went out of his way in an e-mail he sent to me to tell me more of what his bill amendment would not do, than what it would do. Was this done as a reaction to willfull lies or because he needed to sell it as hard as he possibly could? Keep in mind that Reid's bill was perceived by themselves to be so bad, that they needed to amend it to the point that it might possibly pass. It just wasn't the slam dunk they had hoped for. Regardless, I am offended. I've heard the NRA called many things - nuts, fringe, minority, cavemen, hillbillies - but can't recall us being called a bunch of liars.
