Interesting. So, you have an issue with a civil rights organization? How do you feel about BLM? Antifa? The Southern Law Poverty Center? Do they thwart the will of the American people? I know consistency is tough for the far left, but why don't you give it a try?



The fact that you have some sort of fear of inanimate objects doesn't change the fact the NRA's main priority is to protect your Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

The NRA are really just the gun lobby. Others have expressed this and they are gun owners and former members. The NRA are only marketed as a civil rights organization. You are dipping into the Kool-Aid but you don't know the flavor. Think critically.

We need a person to finally stand up to this. trump aint your man.

Trump see's money when talking to the NRA nothing else. He cares nothing about guns and what they do. The NRA is a business, you buy into their rhetoric. They use that money to influence, manipulate,and blackmail to their narrative. And lately as where money is involved, greed and corruption.

What about the others in line like Vlad, Tucker, and Seann?

The NRA is the oldest civil right organization in the country.

Yeah, that is not why it was formed. It was formed to improve marksmanship.

T has a big, blustery mouth, but lets see what action he actually does. Him caving to the NRA not only doesn't look good, but it's gonna bite him in the butt down the line when another and another shooting happens and he's done nothing. I'd say ditto to Moscow Mitch, too.

That woman with the hot grease showed that. lol

Background checks? You do know that in order to work in public schools you need to have a background check and be fingerprinted. You can go on the Net, put in a person's name, and find out if said person has been fingerprinted and cleared by the FBI. I did a check on myself and found it.

If I ever wanted to buy a gun, my fingerprints are already on file.

Edit: A background check certainly would show criminal activity. However, mental issues would be far more difficult to show up in a background check, especially occurring in childhood.
In what way are those not "natural rights"? You have the right in this nation to purchase any of those items should you wish. Much like with the 2nd amendment-a right to do/own something does not mean someone else has to provide it for you.

Hey, if you paying members of the lobbying consortium called the NRA are okay with promoting the civil right of Mrs. Wayne Lapierre to have a larger MBR closet and the proper social membership at a Dallas country club, then who are we SJWs (who advocate for an equal playing field for all Americans and who struggle to battle discrimination based on race, religion, age, gender and ethnicity), to complain?
