If you haven't heard, the NRA decided to publish their "Enemies List" on their web-site. I gotta tell ya, going through this list really shows how far off the rails the NRA has gotten.

Of course there are a few of the usual suspects, like the ACLU on this hit list (pun very much intended).

Seriously, as far as organizations go, the list is long and the net cast wide. The NRA targets Doctors, old people, people of faith, women, people of color, teachers, and yup, even the lawyers. Then you get to the actors. And not to be left out, journalists.

so, here's just a sampling of the NRA's Hit List targeting organizations:

American Academy of Pediatrics
American Medical Association
American Association for the Surgery of Trauma
American Trauma Society
American Federation of Teachers
American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
American Academy of Pediatrics
B`nai B`rith
League of Women Voters of the United States*
Police Foundation
Society of Critical Care Medicine
Southern Christian Leadership Conference
World Spiritual Assembly, Inc.
YWCA of the U.S.A.

After looking through this extensive hit list, I would definitely say it would behoove our state legislators to stop and consider if taking their orders from the NRA is the right thing to do. Seriously, the NRA has lost it's collective minds.

Before going to your link, I wondered why the American Federation of Teachers made the "hit list" and the National Education Association didn't.

On following your link, though, I discovered that NEA does, indeed, rank among NRA's "suspects," as well.

I had hoped as much :-)
