1. What a bunch of sick whack jobs these NRA people are

 

It's not just La Pierre, Nugent and Bolton, this organization is chock full of nuts.

5. Well, the management is.

It's pretty clear that they represent gun makers and not their actual members.

11. Some of them are, but you can't judge individuals by the group.

A lot of them do not buy into the NRA's extremist perspective. I used to be a member of a gun club just to have access to their rifle range. They required NRA membership and I paid the annual minimum. Their monthly magazine went from mailbox to trash can.

2. "The color of a gun, the way it looks"

The way it kills is more like it. I haven’t heard arguments to control guns of particular shapes or colors as though they were living beings. If they start requiring mental exams for gun ownership, they should start with Marion Hammer. Or maybe she’s trying to make LaPierre seem sane by comparison.

4. NRA predicts guns will be taken but did they predict the guns they protect in mass killings.

We can see where NRA stands on guns mow where are they going to take responsibility in safety, they don't spend much time on safety. They want to protect their guns, we are trying to protect lives.
it a terrible thought when their "rights" over rule our right to life, maybe it is time to make the NRA liable for lives lost to violence, make gun owners have liability insurance and be tested every year at the expense of the NRA.

7. It's very sad the bigotry and prejudice black guns endure.

I'm so glad that no one has expressed bigoted remarks concerning our black president.

8. She's right. Gun laws are akin to bigotry.

Did you know that assault rifles have historically been denied drinking from the same water fountains as humans?
