The Anatomy of Right Wing Spin: Do the Vicki McKenna Twist.

Radio's smoke saturated talker Vicki McKenna is so devoid of actual content, that there is barely a minute that goes by she isn't making things up just to fill her empty program with bogus content.

Check her tweet, stating MSNBC blamed the NRA for the Boston bombs...:

...and then the actual commentary by Lawrence O'Donnell about a law the NRA defeated in Congress that would have allowed the government to track the gunpowder used in bombs, and thus find the Boston bombers. Blame the NRA? Heck, even The weekly Standard said as much in the title of their story:

MSNBC: NRA 'in the Business of Helping Bombers Get Away With Their Crimes'

To blame for slow investigation into Boston bombings.

"There are new developments tonight in the bombing investigation here in Boston," said O'Donnell. "But that investigation could be moving faster were it not for the successful lobbying efforts of the National Rifle Association. The NRA's efforts to guarantee that American mass murderers are the best-equipped mass murders in the world is not limited to murderers who use assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. The NRA is also in the business of helping bombers get away with their crimes. Gunpowder could be traced by investigators to a buyer at the point of sale if gunpowder contained a taggant, an element that would enable tracing of the purchase of gunpowder. But thanks to the National Rifle Association, identification taggants are required by law only in plastic explosives. The NRA has successfully blocked any requirements for such taggants in gunpowder. So such supremely helpful evidence as taggants are not available to the FBI in this investigation."
