Ahhh ... The Gadfly loves the smell of Hypocrisy in the morning .... smells like . . . . Victory! ... Well, ok, maybe not victory, but at bare minimum, point goddamn proven.
Scott Walker is a big, old backer - read sockpuppet - of the NRA. He loves them NRA campaign donations so much he is willing to risk poor optics time and time again to give them some love. In return, the NRA showers him with campaign donations and an A+ rating.
Yup, Walker is a real gun nut supporter...unless those guns are anywhere fucking near his precious ass.
In his invitation to his official kick off to his presidential campaign, which he has been running for four and a half years, Walker asks people to leave their guns at home:
Prohibited Items: All attendees will go through airport-like security and should bring as few personal items as possible. No large bags, sharp objects, signs, umbrellas, liquids, aerosol containers, guns, ammunition, fireworks, electric stun guns, mace, selfie-sticks, martial arts weapons/devices, or knives of any size will be allowed in the venue.
Just don't hold your breath waiting for Walker to admit guns kill. He gets paid a lot of money not to say that.
The fucking little coward. If he's so enamored with guns, guns, guns everywhere, and with the concept of "good guys with guns" will take of the bad guys with guns, then why isn't he allowing people, who are presumably backers of his - and good guys! - to tote their loaded AK-47's and Tec-9's at his presidential announcement party??
The Gadfly will tell you why ... because Scott Walker, like the rest of the NRA boot-licking politicians is very aware of the danger of allowing locked and loaded human beings, some drunk, some doped up on prescription drugs, some with anger management issues, some possibly with mental health issues, some possibly with even personal or political vendettas -- anywhere near his self-important ass. Oh sure .. he follows the NRA's marching orders and votes to allow these same assholes to open carry in our communities among our families and children and in our public gathering places like malls, restaurants, airports, etc., but by God, not at one of his political rallies!
Fuck Scott Walker. Fuck his phoniness. Fuck his self preservation assholery. Fuck his craven presidential ambitions.
