On the third anniversary of Sandy Hook, the very last thing the NRA should be doing is calling liberals the "godless left" who are terrorists of the New Age.

But they did.

In a video released on December 14 -- the three year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre -- conservative radio host and NRA News commentator Dana Loesch criticized reactions to the December 2 mass shooting in San Bernardino that claimed 14 lives. Loesch singled out a New York Daily Newscover that contended "God Isn't Fixing This" as well as commentators who called for stronger gun laws, arguing that merely sending "thoughts and prayers" to the victims was not a sufficient response to the shooting.

Claiming that those who made this argument "mocked the entire concept of religion" and carried out a "coordinated assault" on "our right to believe," Loesch said that "the Godless Left ... share the same fanatical fervor to tear apart the foundations of America as the terrorists who threaten our very survival. And together, they march hand-in-hand toward the possible, purposeful destruction of us all."

The NRA, via Loesch, is projecting again. The real terrorists are the people who allow over 20 children to be gunned down in just a few minutes, while turning their heads and shrugging.
