"With some 4 million members and annual revenues of $228 million, according to the most recent figures available, the National Rifle Association is one of the country’s most influential and powerful lobbying groups. ..."

"The group is credited with successfully lobbying for, and in some cases helping to draft, Stand Your Ground laws and legislation that allows people to carry concealed weapons in public. In the 2012 cycle, so far the NRA has funneled nearly half a million dollars’ worth of contributions to hundreds of congressmen ... The NRA’s relentless work to protect Second Amendment rights, even in the wake of recent deadly shootings, has drawn criticism from groups that advocate gun control and nonviolence." ...

"Two-thirds of Americans still support the Second Amendment right to bear arms, but a narrow majority also supports passing stricter gun control laws, according to a new survey taken following the recent mass shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin."

"The poll, conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute between August 8-12, revealed three-quarters of people believe concealed guns should be banned from churches, government buildings and college campuses." ...

Submitter's Note: Yes that makes perfect sense because mass shootings never happen at schools, churches (or temples), Post Offices or other public buildings.[/sarcasm]

"This is in response to a July 26 editorial regarding gun control. I doubt I have read an editorial in my life that was as devoid of reason."

"Yes, gun control is a matter of life and death, but not for the article's stated issues. Putting aside emotion and political expediency, facts are facts and the author of the piece chose not to consider them."

"If the interested observer cared to find the truth regarding gun control, he would get a copy of John Lott's 'More Guns, Less Crime.' Or, if that would be too difficult, simply Google the crime stats in the UK and Australia for the years following their gun bans." ...

He gets off on the wrong foot with this gem, 'The Second Amendment guarantees the right to own and bear arms, and I am not against hunters, sportsmen and people who want self-protection from exercising those rights. But government has a right and a duty to protect innocent people.'

"Quick note: I don’t make this stuff up. Day after day, month after month, I click onto anti-gun screeds that make no sense whatsoever. The overarching theme is unmistakable: anything that 'allows' civilian gun ownership is inherently flawed; anything that 'promotes' civilian gun ownership is deeply evil. All gun laws that aren’t completely insurmountable by law-abiding citizens fall into the flawed category. The National Rifle Association (a.k.a, the 'gun lobby') is the poster child for evil. Needless to say, gun grabbing Miami Herald columnist Edward Wasserman is down with saying down with the NRA.

"Thanks to Doug Schultz for continuing the discussion on the important issue of gun control."

"Although it is not true that I am 'bemoaning' the Second Amendment (I support it), nor am I blaming guns for the violence (I recommend it be the owners who are held responsible), Doug seemed to completely miss my point: As we enjoy this freedom, we should acknowledge that the freedom is not free — it costs us more than 80 innocent deaths per day, the equivalent of 47 Aurora tragedies every week. (See 'Shooting deaths cost every family,' July 28.)"

"Surely the lost lives of 12 Americans every four hours in our country are just as valuable as the victims in Aurora. What are we doing to protect them?" ...

"This group forced the lifting of the ban on sales of automatic weapons, allowing Mac-10s and AK-15s to be purchased by anyone who had the price. As a result, teenagers, bored with killing small mammals with their father's .22-caliber rifle now had access to weapons to create havoc." ...

"America has the most heavily armed citizens in the world, and when you look at the numbers you begin to understand their citizens are packing some serious heat. Since its conception, the Second Amendment — guaranteeing the 'right to bear arms' — has been a controversial clause. It was invoked in a time when America was still a relatively new country, and there was still much lawlessness throughout its lands that required such a mandate… and the Wild Wild West was still to be won." ...

... "Like 'Ancient Astronaut Theorists,' many Second Amendment advocates will often provide 'evidence' that [criminal] shooting incidents like the above are 'isolated incidents,' and that we should, perhaps, be covering the more positive aspects of gun ownership, as in when gangs of marauders are held off by gun owning citizens, or store owners defend themselves against armed robbers."

"And ... there have been establishments whose owners have been able to fend off those who would rob them." ...

"The bitter truth, which is lost in all the smoke and mirrors of their protestations, is that the 'isolated incidents' are outnumbering the times when innocent people are able to defend themselves." ...

Submitter's Note: No, the bitter truth (for you antis, anyway) is that there are more than a million defensive gun uses a year. This is not based on some "gun nut" study, but a study performed by anti-gun activists Philip J. Cook and Jens Ludwig.
