The Hear No Evil defense is:
When the NRA and its leadership says we need assault weapons to overthrow the Government, what should we surmise?
Besides, I'm not sure what rhetoric you're talking about. I know that some of their views can be construed as extremist by some, but I'm unfamiliar with any comments made by NRA leadership that were racist or misogynistic.In order to believe the Hear No Evil Defense, one has to pretend the gunloon has never heard of Ted Nugent, Jeff Cooper, Robert K. Brown, and many others who hold--or have held-- leadership positions in the NRA. We must believe that when the NRA endorses a candidate such as Sharron Angle who proposed using "Second Amendment remedies" on the US Congress that such remedies don't involve guns. When the NRA endorses Allen West (R-FL). are we to assume that when his campaign talks of " if ballots don't work, bullets will"--that it's really not about armed rebellion.
Show me definitive factual proof that the NRA has called for armed rebellion against our lawfully elected leaders, otherwise you fail at constructing a factual argument yet again.
