Human Nature 1, NRA Talking Points 0

 Police in Oregon are looking for a suspect who at gunpoint robbed a guy who was proudly open-carrying his newly purchased gun, because the suspect liked the second guy's gun better than his own, thus proving the NRA's sage theory that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, unless the so-called good guy is open-carrying a new gun that's cooler and shinier than the so-called bad guy's old gun, in which case, not so much. Gleeful responses to the news included many irony alerts, the observation that prolly none of this would have happened if the good guy was carrying two guns, and the startled realization that  "someone found a loophole in the otherwise-flawless logic of NRA talking points."
