Are you sure about that ? Cause every time kids die by guns they immediately come out and shut the door for any sort of talk.

Watch their latest video on YouTube and tell me that trolling children who have been in school shootings shows one ounce of compassion

Like I said. I'm not here to defend them. They're awful. But if you think their motto or desire is to have mass shootings at school and have children dead, you've misunderstood them.

Look, no one here is saying that the NRA is great. But being callous, craven assholes willing to exploit victims of tragedies is far different than being the kind of people wishing to perpetrate acts of mass murder.

The NRA lobbies for the gun industry.

If they have to deal with a few dead white kids every so often to keep up gun sales, they are happy to make that bargain.

Sure, depraved indifference isn't quite the same as homicidal intent, but it's still evil. Or maybe they actually believe their own bullshit propaganda about more guns being the solution to everything.

Yep. School shootings and other terrorist events are the direct consequence of the NRA's actions. They're not pulling the trigger, they're not ISIS, but they're also complete scum.

I have no love lost for the NRA, and no one is saying they’re a good actor. They’re an impediment to progress. But saying that a terrorist organisation that has actually killed children, kidnapped them, and prostituted them out, and committed mass shootings themselves, to say nothing of the murder, beheadings, rapes, wars, etc, potentially has your respect more than an advocacy organisation which is criticising teenagers is, I'd say, past the red line.

We can debate whether it’s fair to "call out" the views of teenage gun violence survivors who have entered the political debate. But I hope we can all agree that killing teenagers is less worthy of respect than criticising their political views.

I believe that the NRA as an organization believes that their 2nd Amendment rights supercede the right of children to be safe in school. Not to mention the right of all of us to be free from a mass shooter in a movie theater, church, or anywhere else.

I'm not talking about what individual members believe, that's up to them to decide. But when you believe that your rights(and that was talking about a militia when militias existed. Guess we have a semi automatic militia now?) supercede even the right to life of children, what can you say about that?

Isis has complete disregard for human life in the name of their agenda. Does the NRA do same? Hmmm. I still wouldn't have more respect for Isis, but for me that's still a question to ponder.

Gun sales do go up after mass shootings.

I think this is probably true.

But the Bill of Rights has always been about a balance between individual liberty and safety. Students (and the rest of us) giving up more of their own Fourth Amendment rights would likely make them safer as well.

Omg Rick Santorum actually said that students would be better served by taking CPR classes to deal with active shooter situations. Rather than marching.

I'd say he'd be better served by learning how to remove his own head out of his ass.

The insane logic of twisting oneself into a pretzel to insane extremes. In the name of gun ownership.

It's a shame when folks like Dickhead Santorum seemed to be normalizing in the face of insanity (agent orangutan).
