BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE NRA

Massacre at Univerity of Texas-Austin late 60's

Cafeteria shooting in Texas

Kilings at McDonald's in San Ysidro

Subway shooting in NY

Columbine

DC mall and highway Sniper shootings

Virginia Tech

Nickel Mine shooting

Police officer massacre in Tacoma, Washington

Coffee House killings in Seattle, Washington

Aurora Movie Theater shooting

So I see us becoming guarded in the same way as Isreal, everytime you cross the street you're gonna have to go through a metal detector.

Thanks a shitload fuckers at the NRA for allowing us to have relatively zero gun laws, creating a culture of killing and turning this nation into a paranoid armed camp that chases after death rather than life.

So once again to the NRA: FUCK YOU!!!!!

7. Actually gun control has strong racist and classist roots.

NRA tends to harbor little racism that I have seen, less than society at large.

4. Metal Detector?

I know a lot who say guns should be allowed everywhere. Remember we hear how if someone had a weapon they could have stopped this from happening.

That rant over, I agree with what you are saying!

5. With all that chaos, would it a simple matter to take him out?

They might have stopped him or not---depends on the circumstances. Remember, it was dark in there and he was running in the aisle. People were panicking. It would be nice to think that someone with a gun could have stopped him, but my guess is that it would be been a daunting task.

6. I agree

Yet that is always an argument which is brought up. In todays case you had the dark theatre, mass chaos, not to mention a shooter well armored. I would say hitting a victim would have been a good chance also.

8. Hard to tell at this point

Recreations by the media and/or the pros will give us some insight if it would have been possible or practical for someone to have effectively and safely return fire.

11. AND there was tear gas. Let's not forget that. How could anybody even SEE in there?

Darkened theater with flickering light and TEAR GAS. Which isn't just gonna cloud up the air you're breathing so you can't see through it. It stings your eyes and you can't fucking SEE! Aside from the fact that the theater was packed with panicking, terrified, and in some cases injured and dying/dead people. I defy ANY would-be Wyatt Earp out there to nail a perpetrator armed with an assault rifle and other weapons under conditions like that. They're DREAMING. Navy Seals could do it. Marine Corp sharpshooters. But I'm sorry. The average gun nut would be no match for a perpetrator like that in a nightmare situation like that. No matter what kind of sure shot he/she thought he/she was.

9. The NRA is very supportive of the Republican Party

The vast majority (by far) of the money the NRA spends on politics goes to the GOP.

10. I'm prone to think the Constitution and the Supreme Court have more to do with it

without those two, and quite a bit of settled law, the NRA wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

But we do have to be realistic about the laws we live under. Changing the constitution is what would be needed, and that's not going to happen. I wouldn't give the NRA much credit at all, and their biggest problem is that they have little reason to even exist anymore.

12. The NRA forced the GOP to vote NO on the DISCLOSE ACT last week.

 

America is under attack from within-the American gun industry.

14. NRA Members are idiots

The useful idiots of the corporate gun manufacturers. The NRA preys on feelings of male inadequacy and safety paranoia to influence its members to behave like the gun nuts on this board. They don't realize that they are just tools of corporate America?
