    are or even like the NRA.  To have the NRA as your public face is like a diner employing Jeffrey Dahmer (I know he is dead but I need an extreme example) as a chef.  The NRA does not speak for most gun owners

      I believe there is a small group at the top making a lot of money off gun manufacturers and retailers. And the other several million decent law-biding folks paying their dues are basically funding the lobbying for those gun manufacturers. My b-i-l is a hunter. Has many guns. But as conservative as he is, he thinks there should be a ban on assault rifles, and tighter, mandatory back-ground checks.
      Thanks for your kind reply.

      America is a COUNTRY, not a CORPORATION. She doesn't need a CEO. Vote Obama.

        and I myself may have been intemperant in some responses but as Puddy Tat noted in a recent diary, if we are to have meaningful discussions here, we must first of all be civil to each other.
        Thanks for your comments
