What about MASSIVE class action suits against the NRA, it's CEO, and all of it's Board of Directors? [View all]

After all, as I understand it, many of it's board members also work in the munitions industry, speaking of which, actually these munitions industries should be targeted with lawsuits as well.

I'm no legal expert, so don't know if this makes any sense from a technical legal standpoint, but it certainly makes LOTS of sense to me at a personal, moral, ethical, emotional level. Of course it is only ONE of the many things we can and I think should do to stop this murderous madness that's running amuck. HUGE lawsuits seem only fair and just on the face of it, given that this rash of shootings is becoming a national nightmare, more dire than any threat from foreign terrorists. We are suffering from a mass psychosis, and are literally committing suicide collectively; as these horrific mass shootings are beginning to occur as an almost daily occurance, and are getting increasingly macabre, "unthinkable" and horrific. Over the past month or so, it seems that these shootings are happening with increasing frequency, with no signs of slowing.

When will the NRA and munition$ titan$ be happy? Will they be happy when the$e human $acrifice$ in the public $quare occur every day? Maybe the NRA $hould buy a huge public $tadium, where thi$ gha$tly ma$$ death ritual can be at lea$t organized a bit, so you know, the NRA could charge admi$$ion at the door, and $ell TV right$ to cable network$.
<-- i.e. please do not regard above comment as a serious idea. I don't want to be giving the NRA any "ideas".

But to be deadly serious for a moment, I can't help wondering just how many other 'bad guys' are out there? ... sitting like a ticking time bomb, with their piles of guns and ammo waiting to be "set off" by another NRA talking point, or by Rush Limbaugh, or by (fill in the blank)? I don't even like thinking about the truth of this, but how can we NOT think about it, so as to sort it out personally and collectively?

This has GOT TO STOP.

Would such class lawsuits make any legal sense, if brought forth by say the National Lawyers Guild representing the families and loved ones of those killed in mass shootings or random gun violence?
