Haven't seen this posted yet but I find this psychologically revealing: This happened at a gun buy-back organized in Tucson last week on the second anniversary of the shooting that wounded Gabrielle Giffords and seventeen other people... NRA Vows To Stop Tucson From Destroying Guns Anna Jolivet had four old rifles she didn't want: "They belonged to my husband, and he passed away four years ago, and I haven't had any success in having someone take them off of me since then. So I thought this is a good time to turn them in." That's exactly what Republican Tucson City Councilman Steve Kozachik expected when he asked the police to do the buyback. What he didn't expect was the response after he announced the event. "I've been getting threats," Kozachik says. "I've been getting emails. I've been getting phone calls in the office trying to shut this thing down or 'We're going to sue you' or 'Who do you think you are?' " Todd Rathner, an Arizona lobbyist and a national board member of the NRA, may sue. He has no problem with the gun buyback, but he does have a problem with the fate of the guns once police take possession of them. "We do believe that it is illegal for them to destroy those guns," he says. "Illegal to destroy guns".... your own guns that you just bought... just letting that sink in... I've been noting for months that what we have is a national gun fetish and that what got Bob Costas so much blowback was that he committed the sin of blasphemy; that he dared to question the divinity of Almighty Gun. Well, here it is, writ large. If threatening to sue the city for the blasphemy of desecrating Almighty Gun doesn't amount to a fetish, then I just don't know enough about sexual perversion. What say ye?
