Irony Alert, Part 2: NRA Supports Gun Rights for Suspected Terrorists

We can't believe it either. But check out the lead of this Associated Press story we saw today:

The National Rifle Association is urging the Bush administration to withdraw its support of a bill that would prohibit suspected terrorists from buying firearms.

Backed by the Justice Department, the measure would give the attorney general the discretion to block gun sales, licenses or permits to terror suspects.

Memo to the NRA leadership: Keep this up, and even loyal NRA members will be dropping their memberships.
