About the NRA, gun violence, and what it says after horrific violence.

It has it down pat.. ...exactly how long, what to say, when to say, , and so on.
The NRA, in my opinion, has spent much time and money on the response it provides. It is all timed, planned out way ahead of time and carefully orchestrated. Who will say what and where. All of that.. After Sandy Hook, nothing was done. No laws were passed, and no changes made. More guns, not less. The NRA knows the routine and plays it well. Watch the next few days. The same old show will be played. And nothing will be done to restrict guns.... nothing

You're probably right about the NRA, they never seem to miss an opportunity.

But I think that's to be expected from a one-issue lobbying/interest group.

2 dead, 4 wounded....

3. Exactly. And the NRA and similar groups promote other right wing causes, not just guns.

Look at the NRA's leadership -- Grover Norquist, Ollie North, John Bolton, Bob Barr, Chuck Norris, Larry Craig, Teddy Nugent, gun profiteers, racist Big Jim Porter (current President), etc.

These, and similar, right wing gunners will have a big impact on the upcoming elections.

The NRA doesn't have to lift a finger to keep Harry Reid silent - he really wants to remain Senate majority leader.

I voluntarily moved to a state with strict gun control. Everyone of my reps in DC support gun control. I support all proposed gun control legislation with two exceptions- registration and AWBs.

I expect nothing more from them than to act like any other RIGHT WING group ... they never disappoint
