We’re not sure if what Van Jones is saying here is true. Some kids might think that way. What we do know for sure is that Democrats and their media allies certainly feel that way. The left is engaging in a full on political exploitation campaign.

Van Jones: To Young People, ‘The NRA Is Like the KKK’
Jones said the NRA’s role in the debate over gun policy has been destructive overall, arguing that lawmakers are afraid to take steps to solve gun violence because the group may criticize them. Jones admitted, however, that he does not know what steps the government could take to make any progress.
“We haven’t had the kind of innovation, experimentation, trying of things—I don’t know of any of the things being proposed would make any difference at all yet,” Jones said. “But we should know more than we know right now. We should have been able to try things and we haven’t been able to.”
Referring to the activists fighting for gun control in the wake of mass shootings, Jones said “a whole generation of young people” simply see the NRA as an enemy.
“You have a whole generation of young people who essentially see the NRA as their enemy,” Jones said. “To them the NRA is like the KKK; it’s just some hostile force that is against them, that’s risking their lives.”

The NRA gives more to Republicans than Democrats. This is an effort by the left to cut off that support.
