At USA Today, Ricochet editor Jon Gabriel writes that the American people are angry about the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida. They are enraged by the failings of the FBI and the Broward County Sheriff's Office in stopping the killings. But progressive activists and mainstream media have zeroed in on the members of the NRA, who had nothing to do with those failures. Eliminating discounts for NRA members is taking sides in a culture war. It's bad for business and bad for the country. Jon says we will end up with blue companies and red companies. Everything will be divided along political lines. Defending a constitutional right shouldn't be controversial. Originally aired on Cam & Co 02/27/18.
Netroots Nation is an annual conference of progressive bloggers, newsmakers, labor leaders and online activists. Conservative writer Jon Gabriel, editor of Ricochet, attended the conference to see what the attendees thought about economics, education and the upcoming midterm elections. He attended a panel discussion on progressives and humor, and witnessed a call by activists to "take down" a network of conservative non-profit organizations. Gabriel discusses his experiences at Netroots Nation 2014.
