Yes. And Wayne LaPierre opened the door to this idea with the disastrous notion that gamers were a faction we needn’t worry about offending when School Shield was introduced. This is typical divide and conquer tactics that are so representative of the Chicago Way. Many people enjoy video games, and it’s quite possible I was not the only person who realized what a disastrous remark that was. The White House may have noticed too.
