Is it time to force the NRA to step out of the business of dictating our laws in ways that allow mass shootings? If no one pulls out the gun that they are allowed to carry and defends a crowd, then what good is the NRA's dogma, influence and policy?

That was a pretty standard and unthinking NRA feed response. Politicizing? That doesn't even make sense. More guns will kill more people. We have had enough of the canned responses and will be doing something.
Forget hunting. No one cares about hunting. It's about mass killing. Saying that people are going to find a way makes no sense when we are handing them ways. We will stop the madness, one way or another.
I am in total agreement.
Everything from guns and women's rights, to education and old age are represented by special interest groups. The NRA concentrates on state legislatures where gun laws can be enacted. Congress is limited in passing gun laws because of the 2nd amend.
Australia has a 'no gun' policy and the "crazies" haven't taken to lobbing bombs.
In one year deaths resulting from guns - Finland - 17, Australia - 35, Spain - 60, Germany- 194, Canada - 200 and the USA - 9,484.
I agree to disagree with you on this one. There are students who don't feel safe and are trying to get rules changed at their colleges so lawful concealed carrying is permitted. Those who wish to do harm will go where they know people are not armed.
