Does the NRA support "2nd Amendment rights" for everyone or just Caucasian America? I've always wondered about this apparent dichotomy...
04:30 PM on 10/08/2012
Actually, the 2nd Amendment doesn't even give gun rights to everyone. It clearly states only "A well-regulated militia" has the right to bear arms. How has this been skewed so badly to mean "everyone"? Well, only 3% of American colonists fought in the Revolutionary War, but over time the ignorant have lied to say every man, woman, and child won us our independence, and so every Jim Joe Bob Gunlover belongs to a "well regulated militia". With an average of 9,000 firearm murders a year, somebody needs to do a better job of regulating that militia!

"It clearly states only "A well-regulated militia" has the right to bear arms."

Are you talking about our 2nd Amendment? Because that is not what it says in my copy of it. In my copy it states that the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms, not the militia. And that last time I checked PEOPLE means everyone.

Yeah, it does, syfy. Do you know what a "militia" is? It is what will form if Obama tries to take people's guns...

I thnk it's terrific, too! All the gun nuts can

A) Look at the mountains of guns n' ammo they have stockpiled since 2008 & 2010 (when they were warned Obama was going to stop them buying/take away their guns) and think, I wish I hadn't spent all that money on all these useless guns! Why do these people keep LYING to me...hmmmmm?

B) Run out and spend loads more on useless guns n' ammo, thereby stimlating their local economy (assuming they buy local, or even buy American. One can never tell what 'patriots' will do these days, after all).
12:43 PM on 10/09/2012
Useless? Mine have been quite useful.
04:27 PM on 10/09/2012
If you feel they are useless, that is your opinion. I find plenty of use for them recreationally. That doesn't make me a criminal or a muderer.

Also, what is wrong with B)? Like it or not, weapons manufacturing is here to stay and it is a big player in our economy.

I say this with respect to your opinion.

I predict the NRA will not require Americans that want to buy any gun any mental health back ground check before they are allowed to purchase a gun?

For that to be true, there must have been a rash of shootings in National Parks committed by lawful concealed carriers.  I'll wait patiently for you to post links to the news stories.

Gun and ammo sales sky-rocketed when Obama was elected in 2008 because of fear he would start placing bans. He didn't. The NRA knows that if a Republican is elected, sales will be flat because no one will worry. Now that it looks like Obama might get re-elected, they feel need to instill paranoia again to boost sales because they know he still won't do anything and gun sales with stay flat. This is about business - pure and simple.

NRA....an organization built on the principle that it's ok to have gun violence in the streets of America.
The most destructive org. of our time!
I live in the South, and immediately after PBO was elected, every store, and there are many, sold out of guns and ammo!
The NRA, in spite of their propaganda, have facilitated most, if not all the mass murders in the US
03:53 PM on 10/08/2012
I wonder how many of the shooters in the recent spate of Chicago and Philadelphia shooting are members of the NRA. My guess: not one.

Sorry but you're wrong. The NRA regardless of what they lobby for or against is no more responsible than you are for facilitating "most,if not all the mass murders in the US" If you want to do something about destruction of the country try working on getting the money out of politics. If you want to blame someone for mass murder you need not look any farther than the perpetrator of that particular mass murder.....

I place great value in the second amendment and none in weapons of mass murder (semi or otherwise) being in private hands!

Another fear mongering group that panders to low information voters. The head of this destructive organization said you can tell Obama is going to try to take away your guns because he is not trying to take away your guns and the NRA members bought it. The NRA is yet another thing that is wrong with America along with rmoney and lyin ryan.

Looking at Obama's voting record as a State Senator, and Congressman would suggest that he would attempt just that. He voted agains any and all gun bills that came up.

So the Planned Parenthood abortion business is expanding its advertising campaign attacking presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, this time adding $800,000 worth of ads in the battleground state of Colorado

Nothing wrong here huh Libby

This is for NRA.
Gun don't kill, Human kills and be killed.
It is a REAL FACT that members in NRA advocate to make stuffs killing people.including themselves.
To bear arms said in Constitution is for self defense, not to kill each others by a click of a finger to kill a bunch of people. NRA is too far to stretch over the limitation of the meaning of constitution to the point killing people is what mean in constitution. THAT MUST BE STOPPED.

The NRA and anyone who owns a gun can kiss my big, white, liberal ass.

If a woeful rock band made up of dopey southern rednecks can come to the conclusion that 'handguns ain't good for nothing but killin,' then it doesn't take a degree from MIT to confirm it.

Anybody who believes that the NRA cares about anything other than selling more guns to frightened Americans needs to check their mouth for a big hook because you just been pulled to shore by the biggest group of liars and corporate criminals on Earth.

Citizens didn't and does not define IRS policy on what constitutes a non Profit. The IRS rules are clear. Pull their non profit 501C3 status and fine the hell out of them.
