21. You would have a hard time convincing me the NRA is not a lobby for gun manufacturers

and only uses the 2nd Amendment as camo for that purpose.
I am a proud gun owner, have been most of my life. When I hear the crazy shit that many people come out with, claiming the NRA as authority, I have no doubts who I would call "gun nuts". I know people who spent their life savings on ammo 3 years ago thinking that Obama was coming down their driveways to take away their guns on his own.
I have no problems with citizens of any community creating laws that regulate the purchase and use of weapons by people of questionable character. From what I have heard so far the guy in Florida would have had a hard time convincing anyone of his lawful intentions.
Any regulation is a very sticky wicket and unfortunately it takes someone getting hurt or killed before we know how dangerous some people become with a gun. I do not have anywhere near the answer as to how we can solve the issues of uncontrolled violence in America, from either the perpetrators issue or to peoples need to defend themselves. I just believe that somehow within our great system of democracy we will come to a solution that most of us can stomach, short of mandatory life sentences for unlawful uses of fire arms.
I place my right to "the pursuit of happiness" as my greatest freedom of all. Unfortunately this part of our Constitution is less defended than others.
