Prog's have been told this over and over again.  And you still don't believe it.

OK so lets try this real world example: someone in your family gets mugged, and afterwards you think "Gee, if I'd only had a gun".

Welcome to the NRA, we've been protecting your firearm rights since 1889, and we're the oldest civil rights organization in the world.

Conservatives are highly overrepresented online, even on "liberal" sites.  Something about near total anonymity seems to attract people who love to spout hateful, anti-social garbage.

Told what?  That we must be pants-shiattingly terrified of everything and everybody in the world around us at all times and spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to arm ourselves against the infinitesimal chance that something bad will happen to us that guns could solve instead of make worse?

Lemme guess. This was a online poll. Wonder if info about the poll got passed around sites where those concerned about 'gun rights' might have found out and been a bit over represented.

And the NRA doesn't represent gun owners. It represents gun manufacturers.

I'm not surprised at that poll. It's a common delusion among conservatives that liberals are anti-gun. It's more like anti-crazy people getting guns, which the NRA is all for. Too bad the NRA has been taken over by gun manufacturers and zealots.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation represents gun manufacturers, their literature actually comes with most new guns in this country.  The NRA represents ~5% of gun owners (yet has become a convenient, pejorative way to refer to anyone who doesn't espouse any and all gun control proposals from Bloomberg et. al....).  The NSSF represents gun manufacturers.

Back when I was into guns about once a week someone would post a poll in gun forums and say "lets go vote in this poll" and magically the progun votes would skyrocket.

A lot depends on how you word the question.

I support people's right to own and carry guns.  I also support limits on that right.


/I also think carrying a gun all the time would be a pain, I hate carrying a big cell or wallet, I can't imagine a two pound gun.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) is a national trade association for the firearms industry

The NRA gets a small chunk of its money from industry groups, including the firearms industry, as well as other sporting goods:

Starting your blog off with "It's not scientific by any means" is an invitation for anyone who understands even the basics of science to stop reading.
 
2014-08-07 09:43:56 AM
So....what's the point?  That liberals aren't the horrible gun-grabbers that everyone seems to think they are?  That there's a big damn difference between saying people should have to get background checks before buying a gun, and saying that people shouldn't be allowed to buy guns at all?

Nah, forget that.  Just keep being afraid of the "liberals" that live in your head.  They're much less complex and nuanced than the ones in the real world.

Glock has their own "Glock Sport Shooting Foundation."  And they're Glock, they don't really need to lobby, they have 60% of the law enforcement market and a similarly huge market share in the civilian world.

I tend to be on the liberal side and I own a few guns but I never felt the need to join a gun club or gun lobbying organization.

Same here.  The NRA went from an attitude recognizing that firearms are deadly weapons that require training to handle responsibly to "OMG GUNS ARE SO COOL!  EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A GUN!  ANY GUN REGULATIONS = NAZI GERMANY!  IF YOUR DOCTOR ASKS YOU ABOUT GUNS IN THE HOUSE HE IS A NAZI AND SHOULD LOSE HIS RIGHT TO PRACTICE MEDICINE!"

The National Rifle Association is not, as is commonly believed, a firearm manufacturer lobby. Their leadership sincerely believes the claims that they issue.

That is, in fact, the biggest problem with the organization.

You should have the right to carry guns in public. I think most people genuinely agree if they really think about it.

However, consider that you also have the right to fart in an elevator. (call it freedom of expression)

Understanding the difference between a right and a good idea is important.

You are mistaken. I have been assured that -- despite believing that same sex marriage should be legal, that women should be free to determine their own reproductive health choices (up to and including abortion), that health care should be available and affordable to all (and that affordable health care should include coverage for the aforementioned reproductive health choices) and that demands for reduction of the federal deficit that are coupled with refusals to increase revenue rates are indicative of mental illness -- that I am a "bagger" because I also believe that a complete ban on civilian ownership of .50 caliber rifles (including mandatory surrender of currently owned rifles) is not a viable means of reducing violent crime.
