Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: The NSA also has one, its called "anyone who has Googled ffor dock enlargement pills"

Pills for dock enlargement.  When I got a larger boat I had to hire a crew of red necks (Central Missouri Ozarks) to build a larger dock.  How would a pill do that, do you toss it in the water by end of the dock?

This will be great! When we finally takeover all the markets we can then use the list the NRA compiled and begin to target the gun users for re-education! I think possibly even get some free labor out of them too when they fight back and we have to put them in prison!

The NRA is conspiring with the Soviets, the Cubans, and the Nicaraguans.  I knew it all along.

Serious Black: I bet I can count how many NRA members who oppose a national gun database enough to give up their own membership in the NRA on zero hands.

If the ACLU defended the 2nd Amendment the NRA would go back to what it was originally intended to be, a shooting club.  Gun owners flock to the NRA because it's the only 2A rights organization with any clout.

There aren't that many organizations, that when the chips are down, will back an unpopular black guy. But the NRA is one of them.

Like when the NRA endorsed President Obama during the 2012 Presidential election?

Is Obama the only black guy you know of?

No, but um, he had a much better pro-gun track record than Romney.  "But he's a black librul!  ZOMG!  Vote for Romney who voted for an assault weapons ban! DUURRRRRRR HERRRR!" -NRA

Obamas voting record was not pro gun. Obamas stance on firearms was not pro gun.

unless you can prove it was through the use of citations.

in before NASHUNAL PARKS!!!

Obama as an executive has never done anything to roll back rights for gun owners.  Romney as an executive has.  You lose.

You misspelled national parks, btw, and not in an ironic hipster liberal kinda way.  You're a conservative, I am sure it was an intentional deliberate misspelling based on ignorance and lack of education.

He endorsed the Illinois handgun ban, voted to prevent people from defending themselves in their home, feels that the 2nd doesn't apply to states allowing states to ban firearms outright, stated Bush erred in letting the AWB expire, wanted to ban all semi automatics.

Obama has done nothing to ban firearms as a white person either. Or as an Oklahoman....I am technically correct, deal with it.

You are technically incorrect.  Endorsing sh*t does not mean he has actually done anything as an executive.  Remember that L word I kept calling you last week?  You're being one of those again.

No I don't, can you refresh my memory?

You used a quote by Romney to show how he was in favor of banning assault weapons, but here you are saying an endorsement by Obama doesn't count, only what he has done as executive.

That sounds like you have a different set of rules for the person based on the letter R or D after their name.

No, the rules haven't changed.  He made an endorsement and backed it up with legislation.  That's called a "difference", it means that things "are not the same".  The sky is blue.  Water is wet.  The L I referred to is "liar", and I am starting to think that is unfair because maybe I'm playing cards with someone who only brought half a deck.

It's a serious question. Jesse has a rep as this great civil rights leader, but I struggled to come up with something he's actually done, beyond riding the right set of coat-tails. He's like the black GB2.

As to the original point, I just want you to be consistent. You're a single-issue voter, except for this. There aren't that many organizations, that when the chips are down, will back an unpopular black guy. But the NRA is one of them.

And I'm sure you've spend countless hours studying the life of Jesse Jackson to come to that determination. I called him a profiteer and I'm still supposed to defend him because ...black? I don't know. Do you think we walk around with lists of every organization that's said something positive about a black person to determine who to support? I don't go to McDonalds just because they have a black kid in the commercial breakdancing with a McGriddle in his mouth. But, I think the real takeaway from your comments is that you finally realize that there is a disparity in America between how whites and blacks are treated. You're coming along, son.

LasersHurt: Snatch Bandergrip: If you're a licensed gun owner, wouldn't you already be on a database?  Is it really any different than having a driver's license?

/Serious question

There is no licensing requirement for ownership (in a general sense, restrictions apply).

Yes, but the NRA is using the database only for good. As defenders of freedom, truth and gun safety, they will never allow this information to be used to hurt the best interests of Wayne LaPierre.

   The NRA is an organization secretly created by the government in order to control both sides of the gun control debate.  It is just show opposition to give the illusion of freedom.  The government knew the would never be able to collect the data by legislation but people will voluntarily give up that information to supposed opposition to the government.
   Well now they have is suckers and they will come in their jack boots to take your guns.
   LOL you thought that large organizations and corporations were different than the government.
