Bob Schieffer And Godwin's Law
Cam Edwards of NRA News fisks Bob Schieffer of CBS News and his attempt to invoke Godwin's law with regard to the NRA. Godwin's Law states that the longer an online discussion goes on that the likelihood of someone invoking Hitler or the Nazis approaches one.
Schieffer said that if we could find and kill Osama bin Laden, pass civil rights, and defeat the Nazis then America surely could take on the easier task of defeating the gun lobby. The only problem is that as Cam points out the gun lobby isn't a bunch of gun manufacturers - it is you and me. So what Bob Schieffer really wants to do is to take away the civil rights of gun owning Americans just like that other group did in 1930s Germany.
