It's official: the NRA is trying to be cool.
They tried after Columbine and now they're doing so after Sandy Hook. But this time, they've gone too far.
Earlier this week, NASCAR and the NRA announced that the race formerly known as the Texas 500 will now be known as the NRA 500. The race, which will be aired in prime time, Saturday April 13th, will be held at Texas Motor Speedway.
It's rumored that the NRA paid over a million dollars to place their name on the event. Charities have sponsored NASCAR races in the past including Susan G. Komen for the Cure and Autism Speaks.
However, some feel that the NRA's placement on that Texas race will only try to commercialize its image, especially after its head, Wayne LaPierre made idiotic comments about how schools should be run after the Sandy Hook massacre. You know, "the only way to stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun" and the fact that he wants police in all schools in America? Here's a better idea: BAN ALL ASSAULT RIFLES! DUH! Remember, Adam Lanza got the guns from his gun nut mother who thought that the world was coming to an end. Gee, that happened, right?
Remember, folks. Anybody who's seen Bowling For Columbine remembers the interview Michael Moore gave to Charlton Heston in regards to his stances on guns, and when Moore presented the Ten Commandments star with a picture of a shooting victim, he walked away. That's the NRA for ya.
I suspect that the event will further turn NASCAR's most liberal fans away. Then again, do they even HAVE liberal fans?
After all, NASCAR is a dumbass southerner's way of saying "nice car".
