NRA: "In the name of safety, any person who carries
or is exempted from having a CCW permit should be required to have some form of
firearm training." [emphasis theirs]

Bill of Rights: "...the right of the people to keep and
bear arms shall not be infringed."
With such a diversion between the two, to whom shall we be loyal -- America's
Bill of Rights, or the NRA?
Note: Within 12 hours of having posted the above, NRA removed the
offending statement from the above page. The following two links will take you
to full sized screen shots. The first one has the offending text, and the second
one, taken just hours later, is missing the offending text.
