TYT: Does the NRA Represent Gun Owners or Manufacturers?



"Throughout its 142-year history, the National Rifle Association has portrayed itself as an advocate for the individual gun owner's Second Amendment rights. In turn, the NRA relied on those gun owners, especially its 4 million or so members, to pressure lawmakers into carrying out its anti-gun control agenda."*

The NRA is attempting to deny an affiliation with gun or ammunition manufacturers, saying they're fighting gun control on behalf of gun owners. Large sums of money say otherwise. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (Host, Turner Classic Movies), and John Iadarola (Host, TYT University) break it down.

2. Owners. The NSSA in Newtown is for the manufacturers

NRA tried to form a competing organization but it failed.

Only members (people) get to vote.

5. Follow the money.

If the NRA is not working for the gun industry, then they must be working for some foreign power. Somebody who does not have America's larger interest at heart.
