To begin with I believe everyone, or at least the vast majority of people understand the definition and application of the term “one percenters”.
But I wonder how many are aware of the “three percenters”? Three percent, that’s the number of people who own half of the of guns in this country.
The question should be asked how many of this three percent belong to “militias”, white supremacy groups, or openly harbor racist views? How many have mental health, alcohol, or substance abuse problems? How many have a history of violence or abuse whether spousal, in relationships, or directed at children?
I would be interested in knowing the percentage of those among the three percenters who own an assault rifle, bump stocks, and high capacity magazines.
But if percentages are the topic of conversation then the fact that ninety percent of NRA “donations” go to Republicans should also be open to discussion.
The only thing the NRA and conservative political flunkies understand is money, not body counts nor public outcry – what they’re complaining about now in yet another attempt to create a false narrative are entities like banks, airlines, and others are disassociating themselves from the NRA.
Conservative flunkies like their bought and paid for politicians and yellow journalism outlets like Fox Fake News are left with little recourse other than attempting to portray this as being an assault on of all things freedom of speech and the Second Amendment …… but then they believe and support Citizens United as “free speech”.
Now these same people will froth at the mouth that a baker for instance who refuses to make a wedding cake for a gay couple not only has the right to do so but are exercising a Constitutional right.
That’s known as talking out of both sides of your mouth.
How about a bartender that refuses to serve an obviously inebriated customer – does that qualify as an infringement of rights?
hashtag#boycottNRA? damn right but also there needs to be a #boycottRepublicanflunkies
