That's the problem, we already DO understand them, and they are nuts!

Why should we? They don't understand our point of view and sure as hell don't respect our voices.

Nothing but a "feel good" solution to the Sandy Hook massacre........still.

The NRA supports a real solution to the problem......but they are so driven by an agenda that has nothing to do with any resemblance to an actual solution, that I'm certain we are dealing with mentally deranged touchy feely people.

I learned long ago to not waste my breath on that mindset, no matter how educated they are they choose to simply ignore my words and wrap themselves in their utopian delusions that the world would be a better place without firearms.

I'll ask this question here and see if anyone can give me a good answer. Why would a 100 lb single mother of two who lives in a low income, high crime area NOT want a self defense weapon?

How come these same people aren't complaining about what the NEA is doing to our children?

Man, another article that relies on facts and logic. These guys never falter in making a substantive argument for their case.

They are being absolutely routed at the national level and in the courts. Flat out creamed. The only thing that can swing that momentum now is if we get complacent and stop minding the store. If we can keep up what we've been doing for the last several years, but particularly the last seevral months, the "antis" will be confined to the hallowed halls of their ivory towers where they belong.

It always gets me that they want to attack and refute the faceless "NRA". Don't they understand that actual tax paying, engaged and politically astute U.S. Citizens are what constitutes the "NRA"?

I mean the NRA wouldnt exist without WE THE PEOPLE!

Libs like thinking the enemy is some evil capitalist organization whether the issue is the environment, murdering children, people starving, war, etc.

I have no urge to look into their point of view any more than I already have. They try to alienate us everyday of the week. They can go pound dirt!

People like the author are the reason for the NRA. This extremist group is trying to deprive us of our civil rights. Damn right we will fight back.
