If the NRA, and its foaming-at-the-mouth leader, Wayne LaPierre weren’t scary enough, it turns out the gun-happy organization has now created an enemies list. As the ThinkProgress blog points out – the NRA’s “Nixonian enemies list” is comprised of individuals, and organizations, that have “lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to an anti-gun organization.” The list includes medical organizations, that often have to deal with gun violence first hand in hospitals, like the American Medical Association and the American Nurses Association.
The list also includes educators, who are now too often the victims of gun violence, including the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association. Law enforcement groups tasked with patrolling gun violence also made the list, like the National Association of Police Organizations. So, too, have religious organizations, and even several musicians, like Art Garfunkel, Frank Zappa, and Boyz 2 Men.
Apparently, MacGyver even made the list. And the NRA’s descent into madness continues.
