Why doesn't the government start a new department to compete with the private NRA?????

The right to bear arms is a basic right, so why is the NRA a private entity? A NEW department or sub-department should set apart a more responsible and competitive group that would....

. Bring about competition between the two.
. It would eliminate lobbying of politicians who should be representing their constituents; NOT the NRA.
. It would compete to promote proper licensing of arms forcing the NRA to promote the same.
. It would promote agendas that are not as radical (i.e. ... Guns in schools, etc. ), and support straight forward proper uses of arms, thus promoting a positive, reasonable, sellable and competitive organization that would leave the NRA in a position to compete too.

This is something I wanted to throw out there and have wanted people to consider. I think it is a safer and less corrupt way.

Could it be pulled off over time? Could our president make it law automatically? Is this just a stupid idea? Could it even save this nation of extremists?

What do you think? Is there any merit in this that could be expanded on rather than just plane criticism?
