    Its the values the NRA teaches that are part of the problem. Then when you have the intolerant indiscriminately branding any liberal organization a “hate organization” you know this will continue and the nation has a problem.

    If the access of adults to guns can’t be restricted, why should we EVER expect the access of their children to be restricted?

    wasn’t it Regan (conservative) who did away with the mental health facilities?

    Remember when the population and population density was much less?
    Remember when whites could kill blacks with impunity?

    The NRA teaches the use of weapons in all conlfict resolution. THAT is what the problem is!

    When I was in high school, we did have occasional “gang fights”, and the most deadly weapon in use was bike chains, maybe, on rare occasions, someone could show up with a “zip gun”, home-made. There wasn’t easy access to firearms, and their numbers available in “the culture”, was more relative to “need”.

    The NRA is the biggest promoter for the handgun industry of a “need” for handguns, and concealable weapons, that is based on the myth of “terror” and fear, that drives sales.

    While, thanks to the NRA that doesn’t actually pay much attention to rifles or shotgun ownership anymore, the handgun, and “short weapon” (like MACs, and UZI) numbers are “out of the bag”, it doesn’t mean we can’t restore more controls on the increase. The “Brady Bill” was gutted by the simple fact the government cannot keep sales records for over 24 hours, but oddly, the NRA DOES keep those records, to drum up membership!

    The NRA is just as neutral as, well, Dick Cheney.

    Yes, let us do away with such as social security and just let some 30 million of the senior citizens of this country (who paid into such a system all their hard working lives) just live in abject poverty until they die in the streets! Would any of you ultra conservatives now patting mskemple on the back be willing to even take care of your own elderly? Please, do not make me throw up, let alone laugh!!

    A facile answer. However, it is much more complicated than that. Have you ever considered that the hyper-individualistic libertarian attitude may be more destructive to society than the liberal attitude that is calling for more social cohesion and care for all members of the society? As I said elsewhere, this gets to be a question of moral standards. The conservatives seem (to me, at least) to be much more targeted on individuality, whereas the liberals seem to be much more focussed on mutual interactions and seem to have a much larger “me and mine” concept. So who do you want to be?

    Neutral might be a stretch.

    Is that an attempt to appear tolerant?
