21. The NRA supports the vast majority of gun regulations
The NRA supports:
The NFA system for automatic weapons, Short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, and destructive devices.
The NICS system which requires a federal background check to buy guns.
Restricting felons from having guns.
Restricting the mentally unfit from having guns.
Restricting the sale of guns that can be easily made automatic.
The NRA is the single largest provider of firearms safety.

Why don't you at least make some sense? I've heard "ban all guns" plenty on DU, I've never heard "*all* classes of guns must be available everywhere, without restraint, etc".
