What the hell's the difference? Corporate America in the form of gun manufacturers and dealers funds the NRA, which in turn funds the Congressmen. It's just one more jump on the same checkerboard, with the same result.

Oh, and I know that the NRA has individual members too. But it's the manufacturers and dealers that drive the train and call the "shots." There's never been any doubt about that.
There is no necessary connection between the desire to lead and the ability to lead, and even less the ability to lead somewhere that will be to the advantage of the led. --Bergen Evans
