The NRA is a very lame organization because they actually support some legislation AGAINST gun rights. GOA is much better and they would never support
legislation against gun rights. I'm not sure if someone is throwing away their money given to the NRA, but I know GOA is much better.
Meh, so do I. Background checks should occur, they should be better, and it should be a little more of a chore for me to go 5 AR-15s. Walking into a
gun store and walking out with an AK and 500 rounds of ammo in five minutes feels a bit absurd. I should also be able to run a background check on
someone if I'm selling a gun without it being a PITA.
I'm in a shall issue concealed carry state. I think it's a bit bizarre that with some fingerprints, a clean background and $50 people are allowed to
carry a handgun without proving they have any sort of competence. It's harder to get a driver's license, and if you consider how terrible most
drivers are, that's frightening.
There are common sense gun laws, even though that term has become synonymous with retarded gun laws. I don't think it's unreasonable to keep violent
felons from owning guns, or restrict certain types of arms, or ensure that the system in place to check if someone is batcrap crazy actually has
I have a ton of pistols, a few rifles (including an AR and AK) shotguns and a CPL. I'm not for over regulation, but I am for SMART regulation. I
wouldn't be at all opposed to making people pass at least a written test before they get their CPL.
I've found that being 100% on either side seems to be something many default to, but that it's usually unreasonable. I consider myself very pro-gun,
but also understanding that not everyone is mentally stable enough to own one, that some people are crap weasels, and that some restrictions should
very much be in place.
I just joined the NRA!
Been meaning to do that for a LONG time. If anyone else is interested it's $25 off right now for the 1 year, 3 year, and 5 year memberships.
