Comment of the Day: I Am (Probably Not) the NRA

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

Yesterday we noted how two conservative groups have declared that now more than ever is the time for Texas to allow people to carry concealed handguns on campuses. They argued that doing so would allow mature, licensed individuals to protect themselves.

One of our readers didn't buy it.

IAmTheNRA, who we're guessing isn't an actual NRA member, wrote:

"Trained and licensed adults" in this case translates to "immature little brat who can't hold his liquor, but had the $150 and 3 free hours on a Sunday to get a CHL."
