    This cartoon is the epitome of ignorance. Instead of addressing the problems behind gun violence or violence in general, the artist pretends the NRA is the motivational force behind all gun violence in the US.

    Exactly, the NRA has been lobbying for years to have mental health records included in the background check database but the liberals block them every time citing privacy issues.

    @Infidel7.62

    Mental health records are already a part of the NCIS database, and thus part of background checks. So be honest for once. If you were a criminal or had a mental history that prevents you from owning a gun, would you even bother with getting a gun that requires a background check, or would you just go out on the street and get one? There are much stronger laws on the books about drugs, yet nobody seems to have much problem obtaining drugs.
    .
    Ironically, while I am sure you were saying what you said in jest, the NRA is currently backing legislation to improve mental health checks in the background check system. It is backed by the National Alliance on Mental Health. And yes, the liberals are blocking the legislation from going through. Good call! http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2015/08/05/no-2-senate-republican-proposing-gun-background-check-bill

    The NRA is behind the fact that the feds can only keep sales records for five days, then the record must be destroyed by them, but the gun manufacturers, and the NRA can keep those records permanently, for future sales, and recruiting membership.


    NO restriction on magazine capacity – NRA. Focus on handguns, not rifles or shotguns for the past couple decades – NRA.


    Read “Ricochet” by former NRA lobbyist before La PIerre, and see how the lobbying group changed, for the worse, and became a shill for gun manufacturers, not hunters and “sportsmen”.

    So how does that equate with the claim the NRA being the group behind all gun violence in the US? We are all aware you hate the NRA. Just wondering how deep that psychosis goes.

    Which part of your post would have prevented the recent shootings? Your hate for the NRA is kind of funny since you’re a gun owner and have taken advantage of their services.

    Another cop killing in Texas this morning. By a probably deranged man whose weapon of choice was a gun because a gun is effective and easy to get. Ho hum – what will it take for them to wake up?

    I wonder if it’s ever crossed anybody’s mind that the reason cops are so quick to kill citizens is that so many of those citizens are armed and may start shooting at any moment themselves.

    Probably happens with the more twitchy members of the police force, and you couldn’t really blame them. No matter how they try to sugar coat it, the problem is a gun culture and too many guns.

    Ah more senseless debate about America’s right to own a deadly weapon that can kill instantly at longer distances than any other type of weapon. It’s sole purpose is to destroy. Cars get us from place to place, knives can be used for cooking. Guns serve no other purpose than to kill or maim.

    We tried to keep a well-regulated militia in our constitution so we added the second amendment, and then, in compliance with the second amendment, created state’s National Guards. But somehow we’ve bastardized the second amendment to mean average citizens can arm themselves in defense of their homes. That was never the intention. So we argue back and forth about something that isn’t really the issue.

    The issue isn’t gun control. The issue is that Americans don’t give a damn about human life – unless it’s an unborn fetus. Then they get all up in arms.

    Spoken like a truly ignorant anti-American gun control nut. Don’t like America? Stay out. Oh, and try to learn the facts about the second amendment before showing the world just how little you understand.
