    According to NRA’s own numbers, less than 5% of US gun owners are dues-paying NRA members.

    Rather, the NRA is supported by – and represents the interests of – Smith & Wesson; the Beretta Group; Sturm, Ruger & Company; Colt; the “Freedom Group” (Remington, Bushmaster, DPMS/Panther Arms), etc, etc.

    Most people have empathy. The NRA doesn’t.

    You mean the part about counting slaves as 3/5ths, right?

    All the NRA does is protect the rights of loons who shoot off their mouths as much as their guns. I’m not disparaging all gun owners just those who insist on no universal background checks to keep guns away from those that have ill intent. To own a gun there has to be a certain amount of responsibility like driving a car. When used wrecklessly both can maim & kill.

    The founders did that so that they would be able to get rid of slavery. They were actually smarter than you.

    “The founders did that so that they would be able to get rid of slavery. They were actually smarter than you.”

    Well, at least you’re not as clueless about it as Tigger, who apparently never read the Constitution, or he’d know about the words, “three fifths of all other Persons”. The Fugitive Slave Clause also codified slavery in the Constitution. This was no brilliant plan to end slavery. It was a political compromise.

    Some of the Founders were emphatically opposed to slavery, but most of the Southerners felt it was a good thing, or at least a necessary evil. Even among the Northern Founders, many felt that people of African origin had no place in their new nation. They favored returning slaves to Africa over giving them citizenship in the US.

    The Founders lived in a very different world than we do. Few would accept blacks as their equals and I suspect almost all would be astonished & dismayed by anyone suggesting a man with African heritage could be President.

    “They [Africans] certainly must have been created with less intellectual power than the whites, and were most probably intended to serve them, and be the instruments of their cultivation.” – Charles Pinckney

    “To be consistent with existing and probably unalterable prejudices in the U.S. freed blacks ought to be permanently removed beyond the region occupied by or allotted to a White population.” – James Madison

    “Blacks are inferior to the whites in the endowments of both of body and mind.” – Thomas Jefferson

    “if the Negros will not do their duty by fair means, they must be compelled to do it.” -George Washington

    @ansonia

    You mean the part of the constitution that allows laws to govern what arms you can own? You can’t pick and choose whether you like that? You’re a world-class liar, Ansonia. There is no right to own any gun you want. The people have the right to restrict that, which is why you can’t have a fully automatic rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, or bomb-making equipment.

    “The people have the right to restrict that, which is why you can’t have a fully automatic rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, or bomb-making equipment.”

    Those laws were passed before the gun lobby got deadly serious.

    People like ansonia live in bubble where just about everyone agrees with them. If they want to stick to the hard line interpretation of the 2nd Amendment, eventually enough people will get sick of the killing to make repeal of the 2nd Amendment a strong possibility.

    Maybe if we ban all Lobbyists from being anywhere within 1000’ of any Congressperson at any time, we wouldn’t have a mess like this.
    .
    Of course, that’s just my opinion….
