    I think Oliphant is being too kind to the NRA and the politicians who are being paid to support them…

    looks like he does not live in the US either.
    Maybe, he meant the local bar. Not the NRA.
    The NRA does not sell firearms.
    The NRA is all about Civil Rights.
    MLK carried.

    WOW, It’s 7:18 PM. These are the only comments? I guess the trolls are running scared!

    Follow the money. Less than half of the NRA’s budget comes from membership. They work for the manufacturers who want to protect their incomes at the cost of lives.

    But they didn’t. And a police officer is dead because of it.

    No background check on gunpowder, too.

    I think you can still get pressure cookers at Wal-Mart without a background check.

    And you did this during a gun show? A while back I was tempted to buy a Desret Eagle (I have a gun permit my glock and a concealed weapons license) with the guy telling me I can have it that same day, but paying $1,200 for a used Eagle was too rich for my blood. That’s why I ran off with a Model 870 instead ($400). You could not imagine the amount of people I saw walking out with cases of guns that day. I went to the Miami Gun Show last year. I might go again this year. Hopefully that gun is at a better price.

    Even assuming your claim is correct, MKL evidently had reason to think he might need to defend himself. Didn’t do him much good! Your comment doesn’t alter the fact that the NRA & its supporters are a bunch of irresponsible fanatics & witless tools of the munitions industry. If they were really “all about Civil Rights” (sic), they’d support my right to live without fear of being gunned down by some pistol-packing Rambo wannabe.

    Interesting to see people like Richard Russell and ScottPM try to claim that bombs are not “arms”. It seems they’re unaware of terms like “the arms race”, or “arms dealers”, both of which include a heck of a lot more than handguns. Richard says he can’t find the word “bomb” in the Constitution…how about “assault rifle” or “machine gun”, Richard? Are they in there?

    I’ve tried in the past to point out that the authors of the Second Amendment could only have thought about single-shot muskets and pistols (maybe even cannons) that had to be loaded and primed with each shot, but the NRA-types quickly told me that the term “arms” had to be expanded with the times, using the analogy that freedom of speech now includes media unimagined in the 1700s. So how come all of a sudden bombs are no longer “arms”?

    Granted. Me, too. But where did you purchase them? If through a licensed gun dealer, then of course you filled out forms. Those people do it right.
    But through a private sale or at a gun show? No terribly likely, and that’s what the bill before the Senate was supposed to correct.

    My father-in-law had several guns. When he died, my MIL kept one rifle, and handed out all the others to her kids and grandkids. As much as I love my nephews, neither are the responsible type.
