13. agreed but it goes further than that

The right wing in America has long harbored hopes of dismantling American liberties and cohesion. The NRA has proven over and over again that they are part of the right wing class and culture war. They feature partisan social commentary that has nothing to do with gunz- homophobia, misogyny and paranoid conspiracy theories about the president and our hard working law enforcement officials.
Over the last 30 years the NRA has successfully lobbied for gun ownership rights of violent felons, rapists and child molesters. These are the dangerous people that our society has decided ought to be disarmed, but the NRA disagrees. There is ample evidence that the NRA is not in favor of safe gun ownership in America- thier role as a right wing antiAmerican organization is proven by thier actions.

Many have stated that the NRA's evil is about profits for gun manufacturers- but it's becoming increasingly obvious that the present spate of increased stockpiling on the part of unbalanced NRA members and advocates is intended to contribute to an atmosphere of fear, threats and death amongst the American population. The continual threats of armed treason on the part of gundamentalists is intended to dissolve our national cohesion and hard won liberties.
The end goal of all anti-American right wing extremism is to destroy the gains made since the civil war and reduce America to a loose confederation of states with no commonly held federal bill of rights and a toothless federal government that is incapable of defending the constitution or conducting the business of the people.

The question that ought to be asked is "how can any clear thinking, fair-minded individual believe the lies and hyperbole of the NRA and other "gunz on demand for anybody" crowds. Sensible gun laws begin with sensible background checks for every gun purchase ever made and fully funded gun law enforcement. Owners that create deadly atmospheres in thier home and amongst thier family are not responsible and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law- even when thier gun fetish costs the life of thier own children. Why does the NRA resist almost all laws designed to prevent bad people from legally obtaining guns?

These are more appropriate questions when attempting to deal with the gun debate, not the proverbial NRA/teabagger/Glenn Beck lies presented as talking points.
