Bullshit to Sell Guns

The NRA (National Rifle Association) sells a fantasy, something like this. Bruce Willis is awakened by sounds of people breaking into his apartment. An assortment of ninjas, tall black karate guys and bearded Arabic terrorists burst in. He dispatches them all with a burst of machine gun fire from a weapon the size of a small bathtub. This turns on his James-Bondian leather-clad chick who rakes her fingernails down his chest. Handguns are almost never used to confront a criminal. Almost exclusively they are used in error or in passion against family members. NRA members invariably lie or dissemble about that essential fact trying to trick you into thinking guns are protective. Their job is lobbying for companies that sell guns. They will tell you any conceivable bullshit to sell more guns.
