  •  not a question of "not working" (14+ / 0-)

    a question of 12 years of NRA pushing "safety" vs 4 months of not.

    •  NPR did an interview with a gun shop (5+ / 0-)

      owner in PA one day last week......he flat out stated that he couldn't make any money selling hunting guns, so he moved to "self-defense" and is raking in the dough.  He has ads on the radio that he does himself warning people of all the bad guys out there and they neeeeeeeed a gun to protect themselves.  He does the absolute minimum required for a background check.

      It was disgusting to hear.  I wanted to scream at him to find a productive way to make a living.

      Listening to the NRA on school safety is like listening to the tobacco companies on cigarette safety. (h/t nightsweat)

        He's laughing all the way to the bank.

        You can't tell me that Chuck of Chuck’s Gun Shop in Riverdale, IL doesn't know that he's selling guns to gangbangers (through straw purchasers or not) when 1,300 of the confiscated guns in the last few years in Chicago were bought from his store.  (20% of the guns used in gangbanger violence in Chicago came from Chuck's GunORama.)  

        Meanwhile Chuck is probably getting huge bonuses from Jennings, Bryco, Raven Arms, Hi-point and Brolin...
