The trendy cause and silly season

Gay marriage — it's the trendy cause of the day, right?

And then there's the NRA, that never passes up brain-dead reasons to justify squashing even the most reasonable gun control legislation.

And so we have the spectacle of the NRA arguing that proposed gun control legislation would unfairly burden gay couples. (The NRA also contends that convicted stalkers, who would be forbidden to buy firearms under the new law, shouldn't be unfairly punished because not all of them are violent. Let's hear it for the poor nonviolent stalkers.)

I guess it's always silly season, isn't it?
