Today an 11 year old boy brought a gun to school in order to protect himself from shooters...

Is this what the NRA really wants? Everyone so terrified that even children are afraid to go anywhere without a gun? There you go Moms and Dads with guns. What a fine example for your kids.

1. Why wasn't the adult who left a gun where he could get it also arrested?

They don't learn.

2. Yes, that is what the NRA wants, because it's what the gun companies want

because a nation of 300 million terrified people suckered into buying guns will make them gobs of money.

3. It isn't about the 2nd Amendmant. It isn't about stopping or easing the slaughter of innocents

It is about the money. period. The NRA makes millions off of subscribers and their 2nd Amendment fundraisers that help "defend their rights!"

It makes untold millions upon millions for the gun manufacturers.

Our children's safety is the last fucking thing on their greedy minds. it is the almighty dollar bill.

4. The gun's owner needs about 10 years in the state penitentiary for letting that happen.

And lifetime prohibition against ever touching, let alone owning a gun again.
