Rights are good
Guns are just tools that get misused
Of course they are. In fact, why not give everyone the right to keep nuclear weapons? They're just tools.
I love the nuclear weapon responses in these threads.
Regarding the shooting, sad for all involved.
I'll take 2
except the NRA thy benefit from these shootings.
They do? Please explain.
sandy hook they came out with teachers should be armed buy more guns. every shooting they benefit because people buy more guns and they come out with more crazy and more reasons why we should not have gun control.
Interesting theory. I would like to subscribe to your newsletter.
not exactly a theory all the info is in the news and right out there. you do know the NRA is a gun lobbyist first and foremost right? and they have some pretty wacko leaders? all right there in the main news. right after sandy hook the NRA announced all schools should arm children. and every shooting they say it shows how everyone should be armed. and that means gun sales and they soared after sandy hook and every other shooting. the NRA loves to make people afraid and worrying about loosing their gun rights so gun sales rise.
People buy more guns because democrats love to ban/restrict the hell out of them after a tragedy happens
Is your newsletter weekly or monthly?
Your talking points are very familiar.
no because the NRA stirred up fear of banning. it was so pathetic to watch people hord semi automatic rifles and ammo till they could not buy them anymore. all because of fake fear.
daily it is called the News. you know abc cbs fox and all those others what don't believe me? just do a little bit of searching show how wrong I am.
After a week of silence in the wake of the Newtown shootings, the National Rifle Association finally spoke out Friday defending guns and decrying violence. NRAs Wayne LaPierre called for schools to be protected with armed guards, just as sports stadiums, the President of the United States and government buildings.
LAPIERRE: The truth is, that our society is populated by an unknown number of genuine monsters. People that are so deranged, so evil, so possessed by voices and driven by demons, that no sane person can every possibly comprehend them. They walk among us every single day, and does anybody really believe that the next Adam Lanza isnt planning his attack on a school, hes already identified at this very moment?
LAPIERRE: How many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame from a national media machine that rewards them with wall-to-wall attention and a sense of identity that they crave, while provoking others to try to make their mark.
A dozen more killers, a hundred more? How can we possibly even guess how many, given our nations refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill? The fact is this: That wouldnt even begin to address the much larger, more lethal criminal class -- killers, robbers, rapists, gang members who have spread like cancer in every community across our nation.
Throughout its 142-year history, the National Rifle Association has portrayed itself as an advocate for the individual gun owners 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.
In the last two decades, however, the deep-pocketed NRA has increasingly relied on the support of another constituency: the $12-billion-a-year gun industry, made up of manufacturers and sellers of firearms, ammunition and related wares. That alliance was sealed in 2005, when Congress, after heavy NRA lobbying, approved a measure that gave gunmakers and gun distributors broad, and unprecedented, immunity from a wave of liability lawsuits related to gun violence in Americas cities.
It was a turning point for both the NRA and the industry, both of which recognized the mutual benefits of a partnership. That same year, the NRA also launched a lucrative new fundraising drive to secure corporate partners thats raked in millions from the gun industry to boost its operations.
You're right, the NRA is very pro mass shooting.
I said they benefit from it. But I would not doubt a few of the higher ups get a woody over it and how it will benefit their cause.
Just awful . My condolences to the family and friends all involved.
Doesn't surprise me in the least that a few liberals out there would think that.
The greatest thing to ever happen to the NRA is this guy...
why not look at the head honchos. ted nugent? he is insane he is a pants pooping draft dodging pedo that has been gun crazy and just crazy since at least high school. all the crazy he has spouted over the years has just been that crazy.
How many people has he killed? I hate Ted but you happen to be wrong
No one he just talked about it. he had to kill animals instead. He even bragged about crapping his pants so he would not be drafted. he bragged about liking them young and even adopted a teen girl so he could have sex with her. or some such I can't remember the details he brags about it. the guy is a luny and to think I liked his music when i was younger.
So Ted is on record rejoicing after a mass shooting? Or he's on record promoting them?
What the hell makes Ted nugent a "head honcho"? A loud mouth and a micro phone?
can we have a quota for how many gun-related stories there are in this thread jesus
NRA Board Member Ted Nugent Calls For The Assassination Of President Obama
well jeez I guess only oboma and democrats.
Nugent threatens death if Obama wins in November
"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said, according to a video posted on YouTube by the NRA. "If you can't go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil America hated administration, I don't even know what you're made out of."
