A prime example of how a political action committee like the NRA has put its own interests first at the expense of the individual, is the Connecticut gun law requiring a resident who wants to own a handgun to take a handgun safety course. While this may appear to be a good law in itself, the required fee of $ 125 paid to a “licensed NRA instructor” proves without a doubt of how the NRA got legislation passed to benefit itself at the expense of the gun owner. This is evident in the fact that the entire $ 125 fee paid by the Connecticut resident goes entirely to the licensed NRA instructor and not a single dollar of that “fee” goes to the state. This “fee” is nothing short of a revenue-generating stream for the NRA, enabled by a corrupt political system, where the elected officials often act as agents for the people and groups they receive money and gifts from. This is one of the reasons why the United States is only ranked as the 17th most democratic in the world and the 18th least corrupt government.While reading the rest of the post, I wondered what the Prince is trying to say. I suppose, less infringement on gun rights is one idea, plus big government is bad. What did you think of it?
