The NRA fights the above because they are primarily a lobbying group for gun manufacturers. What you can do if you're an NRA member is demand that they back sensible gun legislation to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and nut cases.

I have a CCW and I carry all the time. I train every 2 weeks. I keep myself in good physical shape.
That what a responsible gun owner should do.

No, not realistic. Maybe a civil war of Twitters.

Again, for the thousandth time, an actual civil war is not going to happen. However if there were confiscation attempts with our private firearms it would not be pretty. I doubt any such efforts would get out of the gate. Most cops are in no hurry to try such a thing.


Especially in rural areas where literally everyone owns and uses guns. Not even close to everyone out here is dependent on Twitter.

Because the logical conclusion from the 20 people on the left running for President, is to take away my guns.

Then the "good guys with.guns" become outlaws by shooting police and not wanting to legally hand over guns. Just goes to show you the reason some gun owners are worth the title of being called "gun nuts." I'm referring the SHTF ones that think they need to be armed with equal weapons to police and armed forces to prevent another Waco, as the "gun nuts" mind you.

Not much we can do.

We need to reopen the insane asylums that the folders closed in the 80s releasing thousands and thousands of people into our communitie s

At the same time,. There is no place to send those in need of mental health care today

Until someone decides owning or wanting to own a gun is a mental illness in itself.
Dont think it can happen? Listen to the crazy that is emanating from the mouths of present day,would be presidential contenders...or the leftist professors who help mold young minds

It's not up to responsible gun owners to do anything about mass shootings, any more than it would be up to penis owners to stop other men from rape. Just because a man raped domeone, would you insist on chemical castration for all men?
The libs like to try to argue for gun control/bans due to the rare case of mass shootings. Yet there are hundreds of thousands of violent crimes committed by illegal aliens, and they arent screaming to shut down our borders or even deport them.
