Why?

Plenty of white people get shot by cops and the NRA does not go all black lives matter on them for it.

The NRA protects the rights of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms. This case has not yet been shown to be a case of a law abiding citizen. Just because you have a concealed carry does not mean you are following the law in every instance. People can and do misbehave with their legal firearms.

Now if Castile is exonerated by evidence, they may have something to say about it.

He's innocent until proven guilty, but y'know, dead...

So... where are you going with the exonerated bit?


As is the officer who shot him. So why should the NRA jump in again?

*sigh* Shown to be as innocent of all wrongdoing as his girlfriend claims.

Remember Michael Brown was completely innocent of all wrongdoing at this point in the process too.

Since we don't know anything except that he wound up dead after not telling the cops he had a gun and reaching without being told, we need the evidence to tell us more than we currently know.

What about Michael Brown, the guy who got shot through the top of his head as he was falling to the ground? What was he guilty of again?

You've already made up your mind about things that are not known:

The non profit organization... with like presidents and employees and stuff.


Ok..Where are you going with this?

Looks like she is implying that the NRA is just another money making outfit and in the respect she is right. Anyone that thinks the NRA fights for their rights is an ignorant fool. The NRA fights for the gun manufacturers they are just smart enough to get millions of chumps to pay for their lawsuits.


I've already addressed this.

Your assertions are incorrect.

Prove me wrong.
Whom Does the NRA Really Speak For?

Yes that opinion piece has already been addressed.

There have been several. One of the most recent went to the Supreme Court and ended Chicago's total gun ban.

Helped by the NRA, the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America.

I hope people realize quickly that you don't have to join this farce of a rights advocacy group in order to send a message to DC that your rights aren't up for debate.


As I recall the NRA only represents about 5% of gun owners in America. They certainly are loud, well funded and well organized though.

Interesting.



The records show he had not been arrested since 2011, though he had been issued tickets for minor traffic and parking violations. NBC News counted 31 misdemeanor traffic violations, for things like driving without a muffler. A Heavy review of court records found even more traffic offenses. Racial profiling has been a concern in Minnesota; the Legislature even commissioned a major study on the topic, in which 65 police departments participated.

Pulled over 31 times.

Presumably with his weapon each time.

And just got shot for being 'black'.

Anyone playing the 'race' card.

HOW DO YOU SPIN that ?


It seems NRA critics didn't want to touch this.

I wonder why.

because everyone has a perfect record and never gets traffic tickets.

The NRA has always been a Judas goat organization.

By no means is it a reflection on the members. The members are some of the best people I know.

But the leadership/owners are trash.

The NRA has historically supported gun control having actually written some of our worst laws from the NFA to NICS.

LaPierre himself actually DEFENDED victim disarmament zones during Congressional hearings...

Theres only one no compromise gun lobby: Gun Owners of America.

Because she has a lot of reasons to lie, just like the cops.

I'm inclined to believe her. The Governor handled that very badly.

That's why he was shot, unarmed, 150+ feet away from where that allegedly (according only to Officer Wilson) happened (in the SUV)?

The cases are quite a bit different, but in neither case do we have video of the shooting.

Lapel cameras might help resolve such problems, wouldn't you agree?

I don't believe for a second that the NRA would be silent if the he had been white.


Oh, bull#.

Colion Noir is the NRAs most popular commentator and reviewer. This is just an NRA smear.

Yea I stopped after reading that. I wonder what Kali's thoughts on LaVoy Finnicum are?

In a routine traffic stop, there is plenty of time to get those out before the officer gets to your car. You know you are going to need them. Why not already have them ready?

Having both the license and the permit there to be seen does two things:

1.) Verifies you are a legal driver and a legal gun owner/carrier.

2.) Verifies right at the outset that you wish to be cooperative.

A lot of the eyewitness testimony and the physical evidence on the scene told a different story than the popular narrative.
