When these things happens the NRA goes into Crowd Control Mode on a vast scale, because ammunition manufactures tell them this is what they need to do, and Lord knows we do need more bullets. One of their most popular sayings is " guns don't kill people, people kill people." Whenever I hear this I say, "which means not everybody should have access to guns." They don't like that.
The media provides us with a shit load of info about the shooters, but are they card carrying members of the NRA? You never find that out.
Adam Lanza, the wacko kid responsible for Sandy Hook, was he a member? Was his mother a member? I think the public needs to know. Did a card carrying member of the NRA give her wacko son access to automatic weapons?
Was this crazy out in Oregon a member? He owned a number of guns, all purchased legally, so I think the public has a right to know. Did he pay his dues to the NRA?
And James Holmes out in Colorado? He tried to practice shooting at a gun club? Was he a member? Had he applied?
Every time something terrible like this happens the public has a right to know as much as possible.
It seems to me that the NRA thinks everyone should be able to own a gun. But they don't seem to police their members, do they? If they did, the bullet makers might not sell as many bullets. Wouldn't that be a shame?
