National Rifle Association discovers new zoo-based conspiracy

In order to rally its members to oppose the lead regulation, the NRA described a conspiracy theory involving crooked scientists, phony research, and a shadowy network of nonprofits, zoos and government agencies all conspiring to ban hunting. […]

Scientists aren’t the NRA’s only new targets. Nonprofits like the San Diego Zoo and the California Condor Recovery Team are also on the enemies list. The NRA claims these groups “have considerable influence over many legislators and regulators,” which they use to “capture” the regulatory agencies and bureaucrats responsible for lead ammunition restrictions.

Because of course lead is not poisoning the Condors. What idiots. For them the truth is a conspiracy.

    They are of course very familiar with regulatory capture, that being their raison d’être.
