Question about the NRA...

I have been thinking about this for a while now and just can't figure it out.
The NRA says to arm more good guys to combat the armed bad guys...So what do they use as a bad guy detector? And shouldn't they share that technology with the world?

Which of these industries do you think would benefit most from the NRA Bad Guy Detector?

1. NRA should use it on themselves...

Of course, the concentration of Bad Guy Radiation (henceforth known as BGR Waves) would cause it to overload and blow the NRA into orbit, but you can't make an omelet without breaking an egg.

2. It's too bad that "Good Guy" is in the eye of the beholder...

Almost All of the NRA folks believe they are the good guys being wronged

5. The same could be said of most of the really bad guys in history...

Most of us human beings think we're the good guys, and we justify everything we do to allow ourselves to continue to believe we are the good guys and its only those other people that are really bad.

4. ah...what about the day before?

When your random dude has yet to do anything bad? Can the NRA sniff him out with their BadGUY Finder 3000?
