The Fallacy of "Healthcare Insurance"

The financing of healthcare in our country is a huge policy issue that is fought over on multiple fronts. Politicians, bureaucrats, giant corporations, lobbyists, big and small providers, vendors, nonprofits, you, me, and anybody else that pays for or mitigates the costs of healthcare. The battlefields are all over the place. The battlelines are constantly changing.

NRA and Bump Stocks

Is the NRA ideologically flexible?

I think it is . It appears that the NRA is playing practical politics by throwing the left a bone: Maybe, the NRA will support additional federal regulation of bump stocks. 

Wayne LaPierre's comeback to the "rumor" that the NRA would support banning bump stocks was like drunk-monkey kung fu. To paraphrase LaPierre, (1) bump stocks were not around 10 years agO, and (2) they make semiautos fullautos or something.

The We The People citizens petition site pledges to respond to petitions that reach 100,000 signatures within 30 days. And boy has this one. It's at almost a-quarter-of-a-million signatures as of this posting. My money is on Trump personally responding.
