Donald Trump and the NRA

Fictional material:

From Terry Pratchett's "Snuff":

You picked the single room, didn't you, where the little boy would be. It's lucky for you that I'm a bastard, Mr. Stratford, because if you'd broken into the stateroom, where my wife, although I never dare tell her so, is snoring at least as loud as any man, you would have found that she has at her command a considerable amount of weaponry and, knowing the temper of the Ramkins, she would have quite probably done things to you that would make Willikins say "Whoa, that's going a bit too far.' What they have they keep, Mr. Stratford."

True material:


Trump had said Friday at a rally that armed club-goers shooting Omar Mateen "would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight."

NRA lobbyist Chris Cox told ABC's "This Week": "No one thinks that people should go into a nightclub drinking and carrying firearms. That defies commonsense. It also defies the law. It's not what we're talking about here."

"I don't think you should have firearms where people are drinking," said Wayne LaPierre, the NRA's chief executive officer said on CBS' "Face the Nation."

So the always amazing Donald Trump has achieved what no one has ever managed. He got the NRA to say "Whoa, that's going a bit too far." :-).
