NRA laid groundwork against new gun laws

http://money.cnn.com/2012/12/18/news/economy/gun-lobby-nra-connecticut/

A cacophony of calls to change gun laws has emerged after last week's tragedy in Connecticut, and the National Rifle Association has kept quiet.

But no one expects silence from the NRA once President Obama or members of Congress make any move to change the laws.

Enlisting celebrities such as Chuck Norris and the late Charlton Heston as spokesmen, the NRA is considered royalty in Washington, and is known to easily mobilize its 4 million members.

"The whole fire arms community is very powerful, because gun owners see their relationship to this democracy through the eyes of the gun issue," said Richard Feldman, a former NRA lobbyist and president of a gun rights group called the Independent Firearm Owners Association.

1. I left the NRA over 20-years ago

mainly because of their knee-jerk over the top response to anything they perceived as a threat to the NRA and it's multi-million dollar contribution scheme....

Send us money now, the gov't is coming for your guns! If they outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns!!!!

The overtly stupidity of their campaigns and Wane LaPierre's sick outlook on human life sickens me.
