"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

I'm not sure Mahatma Gandhi would agree...

Nor would Martin Luther King, Jr. Nor would anyone committed to non-violence. But then Wayne LaPierre is dedicated to the propagation of violence through his role at the NRA. Here he is at CPAC pimping for his masters in the armaments industry.

"Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary."

The world is what we make it. Do we model our world based on the violence and umbrage of a Wayne LaPierre? Or do we want a world built around the peaceful vision of a Gandhi?
