Today you can find on the website of The Washington Post, above articles reporting how the NRA successfully blocked new gun regulations, ads paid for by the NRA, telling Congress to "Get serious" about doing something about gun crimes. That's called "chutzpah."
Over at National Review Online, there's a larger version of the ad.
"Enough politics," the NRA demands, then insists Congress pass some laws, somehow. And next to that ad, an article titled, "Every proposal on gun control fails in the Senate," something for which the NRA pushed very hard by including the vote on the filibuster in its score-keeping system. (Though, we'll admit, a filibuster is an excellent way of ensuring that politics are curtailed.)
Back at the Post:
That story, "Obama the Emotional," is about the president's furious speech, accusing the NRA and its allies of having "willfully lied about the bill." Above that: "Get Serious, Congress," signed, the NRA.
Yesterday, Slate's Will Saletan spotted another NRA ad which also ran at the Post. That ad read, "80 percent of police say background checks will have no effect on violent crime," encouraging readers to contact their senators, asking they support the police and support yesterday's background check filibuster. The Senate, being then unserious and not having had enough politics, complied.
