An anti-gun liberal visited the NRA National Firearms Museum in Virginia and then wrote an op-ed piece for the New York Times, where he complained that the museum had guns and seemed to glorify the history of guns in America. What did he expect to find in the NRA museum, flower arrangements or origami? After reading his post, it was clear he had agenda before entering the museum and missed the entire purpose of the museum – guns have played an important role in American history, like it or not, and he was a not.
Would you pay to visit a car museum that had no cars in it, but just pictures and tales of the history of cars? What about an air museum without airplanes or a knife museum without any knives on display? Would anyone in their right mind pay to visit the famous Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago and not expect to see any historical exhibits of dinosaurs or other items? What about visiting the world-famous Louvre Museum in Paris and not expect to see any paintings?
The answer is obvious, no one would visit any of these museums without expecting to see the items the museum is famous for. So, why would anyone in their right mind visit the National Rifle Association’s National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia and get upset or concerned about seeing guns on display?
Earlier this week, Francis X. Clines wrote an op-ed piece for the New York Times. He had visited the NRA’s museum and wrote about his experience. In his post, he wrote:…
If you go to visit a car museum, you will expect to see cars. If you visit an art museum like the Louvre in Paris, you will expect to see art. In Clines’ case, he knew the museum was about guns so why complain that it had guns on display? Because liberals like Cline are intolerant to anyone holding a different view on issues like guns, so they want to force their anti-gun agenda on everyone else.
