The NRA sould be real proud after the Colorado “incident” – gun sales are surging beyond expectations.

What are you implying by putting incident in quotations?

Aurora has strict gun regulations. The theature in which the slaughter occured did not allow patrons to have hand guns.
Your post is a flimsy attempt to denigrate the NRA. You have posted no intelligant thought. It does reveal your stupidity however.

I don’t blame it on guns but on TV shows that is where they see all that stuff.
Someone with a little off upstair sees that on TV then they are turned on.

Jerry: You should check your spelling before you start calling people stupid. Also do not use words with more than 2 syllables.
The NRA has way to much power and should be disbanded. IMHO.

It is no surprise that when OBAMA flies in to address the issue, people immediately think that he will enact some draconian law, by executive order again, circumventing any debate or legislative process.

Yep people respond to perceived threats to their constitutional rights. So they are rushing out to buy things before they are banned.

The NRA should be disbanded right after the ACLU goes, since the Lib mantra is F- the Constitutional rights of the citizens.
The NRA is not FORCING gun ownership, just keeping dumbass liberals in check. Guns are illegal in mexico too…. so the murder rate is really low right? Not all the guns come from the US either – - we don’t make AK47’s

My spelling was typos. Your reply about disbanding the NRA speqaks for itself. The 2nd amendment is our Bill of Rights. Big goverment would love to see them go.

I’m not sure that I’m seeing your point, Jim. AFAIK, the NRA sees no benefit from increasing gun sales – other than possibly a few new members. I’m also pretty sure that only a small percentage of gun owners are members of the NRA.

Is there more to your story?

I am a proud member of the NRA .The NRA didn’t put that gun in that freeks hands,they also didn’t pull the trigger on any of the gun’s that done any killing.It is not the NRA’s fault that the gun laws that are on the books are not being enforced.So now tell me the point your tring to make,besides giving your libtard opinion.let’s see some facts.

Why should the libs let facts intrude into their rants? The Bill of Rights is to protect us from the government.
Big government would take great delight in having an unarmed citizenry.

Chipmunk-
Can you post some links showing that the NRA promotes those things? I’ve seen articles where they’ve defended the right to own them, but nothing that actually promotes them.

Gerald -
The majority of the people I’ve ever debated with are amazed when they read the Bill of Rights and see that they aren’t about giving rights to citizens – they’re explicit restrictions on the powers of the government to interfere with those rights.

DrDirt….I’m a dumbass liberal in your eyes, because I’m not a knuckle dragging right wing moron…Well you had better wake up and smell the coffee…There are millions of us liberals that are gun owners…and the anti-gun crowd is going to really have their day, after this shooting in Colorado. That kind of puts us both in the same boat….Please stay on you side, I don’t want to listen to it…For all you antis out there, as far as I see it there is really nothing to be done….If someone is going to go off the deep end, and want to kill people, there is not a damn thing anyone can do about it….You are safe only if you can defend yourself, or can eliminate other people from having access to you (try that in this day and age)..Be vigilant of people around you, don’t go where there are large groups of people. If you see something you don’t like leave the area…Remember that even if you have a carry permit, and you end up shooting someone…your going to be broke, and or in jail… Years ago I was a NRA member, I really liked their magazine…but the NRA went overboard with the right wing stuff I quit…But if the right to bears arms starts getting hit hard I’ll join if I think it’ll help…. To quote Thomas Jefferson – “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

SS,DD. This argument has and will go on for years and years. Bottom line, if one person in that crowd was a concealed weapon permit holder,some of those people woulda/coulda been saved.
Think of all the things in your wood shop that could be used as a weapon if necessary. But people don’t ban them.
Yeah,I carry and will continue to do so.
