IN: Exposing NRA's agenda first step toward reducing nation's gun deaths

So what do we get from the National Rifle Association (the marketing arm of gun manufacturers)? A radical set of policies. They refuse to allow for even the lightest restrictions on ownership. Why not learn from other countries where guns are not freely available to every criminal and the mentally ill?

NRA advocates tell us regulation doesn't work, that it will take a long time to have an effect. That is precisely because of NRA-sponsored, fear-based thinking leading to the present regulatory laxity that has flooded the country with firearms. Just because we have gotten it so wrong for so long doesn't mean we shouldn't be moving toward the better, less-death-filled way.

Yes, I am sure that the NRA delivered Congress into the hands of the GOP in 1994 because they marketed weapons on behalf of manufacturers so well. It had nothing to do with the NRA's ability to inform and motivate millions of voters (not all of whom are members).

As for the part about NRA opposing all gun regulation-- I only wish that were true. They haven't been called "negotiate rights away" for nothing.

Buy a gun and see how many restrictions there are on ownership.

This scribe obviously does not understand the problem.

It's not guns or the NRA that is responsible for crime and misuse of guns. It is the feral low life that have no respect for laws, property or human life.

There will never be any solutions until one identifies the problem.

The NRA is Not a major player in firearm rights, they have a long time recognizable name, but the GOA actually has more pull than the NRA! And many other groups fight harder!!!

I'm so d**n tired of libtards whining about the NRA being so active against gun laws. It's their calling ....to represent it's members, who send in $$$$$ to join and help advocate!
These jackwagons think other countries have lower murder numbers due to gun control? It isn't even true! There are countries with severe gun laws that are dangerous. Anyone think Mexico's gun laws stop the narcotics wars going on there? There are South American countries with gun control laws and higher per capita muder rates as well.
GET REAL.
STOP WHINING!!!
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Rifles, muskets, long-bows and hand-grenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon so long as there is no answer to it gives claws to the weak. George Orwell
