US National Rifle Association starts wine club

Oh, brilliant. I know the two interests aren't mutually exclusive but it does sound a bit odd.

What do you think? Should people promoting the right to bear arms also be seen to be actively encouraging drinking alcohol?

(I may need to move this to the Opinions/Politics forum if this gets heated.)

I thought it might be more along the lines of a 'whine club' since the NRA feel their right to bear arms might be impinged by Obama's move to restrict the sales of assault rifles.

It does sound like a toxic mix, though. Imagine if the AA and RAC set up a partnership with CAMRA - they'd be justifiably criticised for promoting an increase in the number of accidents and deaths.

Anyway, the whole NRA argument is based on an anachronism and therefore spurious.
