redmid17: thamike: Ontos: enry: Fark It: How much does the "firearms industry" give to the NRA?  How much of that is in the form of the NRA's "round-up" campaign through retailers, which in reality is from individual customers?

FTF Huff Po (bold by me):

While the bond between the NRA and the gun industry has tightened, the NRA's annual budget of about $250 million is still largely derived from other sources, including membership dues, merchandising and ads in NRA magazines. The magazines, though, are chock-full of gun industry ads.

HOLY shiat!!! The NRA accepts advertising from companies relevant to the contents of their magazines????


You've got to be kidding me!!! STOP THE PRESSES!

Man, good thing you're here to blow this story, you really cracked the case!!!

Someone was claiming that this was not in fact the case, so the response was warranted.

I'm not sure what you're supposed to be.

You clearly didn't follow the conversation very well...


Yeah, that CAPSLOCK guy's got the gist.  What was I thinking?

When I make nonsensical posts, I'm usually hammered drunk or trolling.

bk3k: theprinceofwands: The moment a government deploys heavy against citizens the rest of the population (and in fact the entire world) turn against that government. It collapses the nation almost overnight. It would turn that handful of active resistance into an unbeatable army (which, let's remember, is compromised not just of neophytes and hippies but military, law enforcement, genius chemists, etc.

I'm sorry you where saying something?
In fact would you like a list of regimes that prove you dead wrong?  It would be quite a long list and would take considerable time to compile if I want to be fully comprehensive.


You mean like

Publikwerks: theprinceofwands: Godwin is the refuge of the debate loser. It has no value.

However, to address your point, we don't even need to talk about Jews or the camps. The night of the long knives they were following orders. Invading peaceful nations they were following orders. Executing dissenters they were following orders. In ANY military or government sponsored action the soldiers/agents are just following orders. Stalin, Mao, Kermit, native american extermination, ludlow massacre, I could list about five hundred examples if you'd like. Point being 'following orders' and 'doing my job' excuses nothing, which is why it didn't work at Neuremberg.

And you're missing my point. Being forced to take classes and get a gun license like you have to with a driver's license is in a different galaxy that all of the examples you mentioned above. Hell, a complete gun ban would be in a different galaxy than above. No one is dying. The government isn't sending you to fema death camps. The UN isn't exterminating gun owners. So it's a false equivalency.


Actually in a gun ban people would be dying (even ignoring the ensuing civil war), since there are at least hundreds of thousands of defensive gun uses every year. What's more many people find freedom to be as essential as life itself, if not more so. After all, most slaves weren't killed, so it must not have been a big deal...right? It was just lack of liberty that they suffered.

I know personally if you offer me a choice between the painful, terrible deaths of myself and everyone I love, or living without basic freedoms (including the right to self-defense), I'll vote death every time. Not a joke, life simply doesn't matter without liberty. Period.

Sry for above weirdness, not sure what was up with the multiquote chaos.
