Another NRA Board Member Speaks

NRA board member Charles Cotton made controversial comments that eliminating corporal punishment in schools would require him to have 'to put a bullet in him later.’

A member of the NRA's board believes a "good paddling in school may keep me from having to put a bullet in him later."

Charles Cotton made the controversial statement in a post Wednesday on a Texas website that tracks gun legislation in response to a bill proposed by Texas Rep. Alma Allen to prohibit corporal punishment in schools.

"I'm sick of this woman and her 'don't touch my kid regardless what he/she did or will do again' attitude," he wrote in a thread on TexasCHLForum.com, according to Talking Points Memo. "Perhaps a good paddling in school may keep me from having to put a bullet in him later."

The bill, HB567: Corporal punishment in schools, was proposed in December and has not been scheduled for a vote.

The gun-rights organization opposes the legislation and seems to explain Cotton's brazen comments.
Though the bill doesn't specifically address guns, TexasCHLForum states that the inability to curb bad behavior among children at an early age will lead to increased criminal activity. That could then lead gun owners to need to use their weapons for self-defense.

  1. "Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said. "

    1. Yep--this is what Bloomberg wants to hear: "Take my guns, Massa Michael. I knows I jus' gonna git myself kilt if I keeps 'em!"

      Perhaps this will make it clear to you.

    4. First of all, what does Bloomberg have to do with this post? You guys get on me for supposedly approving of Obama because Bush was worse, a false accusation, but one that's similar to this bringing up Bloomberg when we're talking about someone else.

      Secondly, Bloomberg didn't say what Kurt and his Jewish friends say he said. Liars, all.

      My "Jewish friends" (by the way, my agnostic, atheist, and Christian friends say the same thing) and I directly quoted the Aspen Times account of what Bloomberg said, which was that, "Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said."

      How is that not saying that minority men under the age of 26 should be prevented from possessing guns?

    6. And lookie here: now, Bloomberg is trying to cover his tracks. Here's a tip, you little wannabe tyrant--don't say anything shameful, and you won't have to hide your shame.
