    I’m sure that there are some NRA members out there that actually look like the stereotypes that the cartoonists portray, but I’ve never actually seen one.

    There’s an ever so slight difference in a right to bear arms and a right to be armed to the teeth with high capacity, military grade assault rifles.

    If someone wants a rifle for hunting or a handgun to make him feel safer in his home, I support that 100%. However, I cannot support citizens owning AK-47s and so called “cop killer” bullets. There need to be sensible limits.

    The picture here looks very much like a friend of mine in Georgia who’s an avid NRAer.

    You just reminded me of my time in eastern Kentucky (Prestonburg area). There were some people there that looked like the stereotype, but I don’t think they could afford to join the NRA.

    Why anyone would want to restrict the rights of others to own property only speaks to a disrespect for that which is theirs.

    When we move past the “I believe it because Fox said it’s true” morons, and the misconceptions about the second amendment, and half baked notions of losing one’s property rights, we come to the fact that mental illness is on the rise, more and more “soldiers” return from ill conceived war zones with post traumatic stress syndromes and an unnatural comfort with assault weapons and the ability to turn off the innate moral imperative against the taking of human life. We are faced with a truly silly reluctance to regulate access to these weapons, as if, somehow, we are going to rise up against the U.S. military forces to “defend our freedom”, but, instead, we end up permitting unbalanced individuals to arm themselves and attack groups of people in the most relaxed and undefended situations, such as in schools or movie theaters or malls. I think a sane society would immediately make it harder for unbalanced personalities to acquire these weapons, whatever it takes, and it would certainly not respond to this crisis with the idea that the answer is in arming more people. Unfortunately, we don’t live in a sane society, witness the stupid responses above (and to come). We are in deep trouble over this issue.

    Appealing…but simplistic. It’s just a feel good “solution” that won’t work.

    mikefive: I have. They were at an adult Boy Scout meeting recruiting a genocide team to kill blacks. Except they weren’t rank and file gun nuts, but regional leaders, openly identifying themselves as such, and well-provided with membership forms, literature, etc., and bragging about how “those commies in Washington are providing the ammo.” (The NRA/Pentagon “American Marksman” program which they were hoarding).

    Are you kidding? If you’re not white, Christian, native-born and paranoid, you’re on the NRA hit list. You won’t be issued weapons or ammunition, nor so much as a warning. All you infidel Socialists are gonna die BIG, you hear me? BIG.

    Because we live in a civil society, and sometimes your private property is harmful to the rest of society. Individuals do not have unfettered rights to own whatever they want. Otherwise, I’d go get me some weaponized uranium. You know, just in case.
