NASCAR's Road to Newtown/Sandy Hook?

You just can't make this stuff up?  A professional sports league (NASCAR) is saddling up with the largest hand gun, rifle, and assault rifle lobbyists in the country?  Yes, for the love of Ben Hur, the upcoming (April 13th) Sprint Cup series is sponsored by the National Rifle Association to present -- yep, Billy Bob, you got it ... the NRA 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway in beautiful Ft. Worth, just a few miles from where President John F. Kennedy took a rifle blast to his head in 1963.

As a communications guru in the world of sports and one who dabbled with a little bit of racism blended in with public opinion, I could only IMAGINE what would be going on if, say, the National Basketball Association were to have the N.R.A. Slam-Dunk Contest.  Oh, the humanity.

By the way ... my viewpoint? I'm not concerned with the gun collectors and the hunters having their rights.  I believe the authors of the Second Amendment had a much different frame of mind when they edited the U.S. Constitution, but that's another long story.

I would prefer we (meaning the USA and the people/voters of the USA) control the ammunition, not the guns.

So, Mr. Hunter ... you want to go out and blast away and murder Bambi? Go right ahead.  It's legal.  Here are your 30 bullets.  But, you better account for every damn one of them and we're going to search you at the end of the day.  You get 30 shots at killing a buck from Milwaukee. If you nail him in three or four, you win a toaster and some steak knives, but you better cough up the 26 or 27 bullets at the registrar, because you're not taking them home in that rifle. 

Okay Mr. Home Owner, you have to own and store a loaded gun to protect yourself against Mr. Big Bad Wolf, go ahead, it's legal. We're just here to say the assault rifles are now classified in the same realm as nuclear arms. So take that into consideration when you define the word "gun" in your N.R.A. handbook, Mr. Heston - oh, excuse me Mr. Cold Hand Luke, the late Mr. Heston, aka, Mr John Carter.

The flow of ammo to gun owners should be about the same as the flow of Plutonium to Mr. Hyde's Eight grade science class.

And, please say a prayer for the souls of these wonderful, innocent children and their brave teachers and administrators, along with so many others gunned down with weapons of destruction, including one of my personnel heroes, John Lennon.

John Lennon - what's left ...

Sadly, there are many others.
