Authoritarian gun-grabbers have their knickers in a twist because the NRA is sponsoring a NASCAR race in Texas. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) has been leaning on Brian France of the National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing to disallow the sponsorship. Barks the moonbat:
“By giving the NRA sponsorship of a major NASCAR race, NASCAR has crossed a line — you have decided to put yourself in the middle of a political debate, and you have taken a side that stands in opposition to the wishes of so many Newtown families who support common sense gun reform. Whether or not this was your intention, your fans will infer from this sponsorship that NASCAR and the NRA are allies in the current legislative debate over gun violence. By announcing this new partnership at the very height of Congress’s deliberations over gun reform, NASCAR has inserted itself into a political debate that has nothing to with the business of NASCAR.”
To translate out of B.S.-ese, this thug is actually chastising NASCAR for allowing the impression to be created that it supports the US Constitution.
Even Murphy acknowledges that NASCAR has been conspicuously generous in supporting Sandy Hook families.
Unless statist goons are able to stop it, the NRA will be the title sponsor of the Spring Cup Series race on April 13 in Forth Worth, now officially known as the NRA 500.
The NRA + NASCAR. What could be more American, in the best sense of the word? Those in the Dallas area are encouraged not to miss it.
