The NRA is about Selling Guns

Washington Post op-ed
Arming teachers and staff in all schools would mean even more guns sold. The slaughter of 20 first-graders, the impassioned testimony of a former congresswoman debilitated by a shot to the head, the logic of background checks and limits on the sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines — none of that swayed Mr. LaPierre. 

This is not surprising. The purpose of NRA lobbying is to help the firearms industry sell more weapons and ammunition. Individual NRA members can be used to yell “self-defense” or “Second Amendment” as a smoke screen.
This has become exceedingly clear, especially in the prevaricating response to the background checks question.

What's your opinion?  Please leave a comment.

  1. What meaningful offer has your side made in return? You demand universal background checks. What will you give to get?

    But do try to pay attention: The NRA represents me. I have the same interest that gun manufacturers have with regard to gun rights.
