  •  There are many things the NRA has not actually (8+ / 0-)

    done. It is the function of lobbyists to persuade elected officials and staffers to write legislation to the gun manufacturers benefit. Now I happen to have personal knowledge of lobbyists and corporate folks personally delivering the laws they want, all written out, to legislators who changed some grammar and punctuation before submitting and passing them. Now ALEC probably helps with that too.

    I think you are perfectly well aware of that. Just being sure no one thinks those of us who accuse the NRA of doing things don't know how the extortion works.

    We also know that it is a small part of the 4+ million NRA peeps that are doing these things. What upsets me, and probably others in the discussion, is that the majority of that organization that is not in lockstep with the leaders, should have the balls* to get their association back to what it is supposed to be.
