The NRA relies on three basic selling points which they lobby from every possible angle:

1- The right to bare arms. The constitution says I am allowed to own 57 firearms so I am going to, no matter the cost.

2- Hunting. I have to provide for my family by eviscerating a squirrel with an Uzi.

3- Fear. There is a chance a maniac could break into your house and torture and kill you and your family. Or what if there is a terrorist attack or we are invaded by an enemy force? You had better protect yourself with a stockpile of guns and ammo.

Fear has always and will always be the biggest motivation for "regular people" to own firearms.


And all 3 are grossly flawed.

absolutely.

There are not many things i feel as strongly about as i do about gun control.

I don't think average joe deserves the responsibility to own a gun. IT is a deadly weapon and anyone whos over 18 can just go and get one. People have proved time and time again how stupid, reckless, emotional and agressive we are, and why would we want to have that fruit cake with a gun in their hand?
