The NRA and the GOP have a goal in mind for the American people: one gun in every hand and a willingness to use it for any reason at all. The NRA wants this because it is good for the gun manufacturers that control the organization. The GOP wants this because it creates a country filled with people who consider life to be cheap and disposable; where everyone is a potential threat and it’s safer to shoot first and never ask questions.
Meet their new poster boy: Raul Rodriguez. Mr. Rodriguez was upset that his neighbors were playing their music too loudly so he picked up his video camera and his gun and set off to fix the problem.
In Mr. Rodriguez’s world, the one created by the NRA and GOP, it is perfectly acceptable to approach several intoxicated men with your gun out and bark orders at them. This is “standing your ground.”
In Mr. Rodriguez’s world, the one created by the NRA and GOP, picking a fight with unarmed men means that your life feels threatened.

In Mr. Rodriguez’s world, the one created by the NRA and GOP, human life is now worth less than the annoyance of loud music. Possibly getting beat up is now cause for murder. Your right to life is now less important than whatever reason I can come up with to shoot you. All I have to do is yell “I feel like my life is threatened!” and it’s OK if I blow you away. It doesn’t matter if I’m on your property threatening you with a gun, all you have to do is step too close and I can kill you with a clear conscience. The NRA and the GOP have told me so. I “stood my ground” like a man and took another man’s life.
