The NRA should stick an AR-15 up it's collective Ass

And pull the trigger until it jams because in April of this year;
The NRA has spoken out in favor of a bill that passed in the Colorado House of Representatives this week that will repeal state-run background checks on people purchasing firearms.

Speaking out against the measure was Rep. Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora), whose son and daughter-in-law were murdered in 2005, as he was scheduled to testify at trial about another shooting. Fields stated in her opposition to the bill that the House of Representatives should be doing everything possible to preserve and protect life, the Denver Post reported.

The NRA says the Colorado Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs Committee is known as the designated "kill committee" for pro-Second Amendment legislation.
Not that background checks would catch James Holmes. But, the whole point of the NRA has been to eliminate the opening sentence of the Holy 2nd Amendment, A well regulated militia...

Wayne LaPierre and the NRA have the power of life over death. Guns are more important than life. It's Wayne LaPierre's World, you just die in it...

From the same article...

"Instead, background checks would be conducted solely by the federal government's National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS)."

Yep, strict constructionist 2nd Amenment 'experts' totally neglect
the 'well-regulated militia' part.
..or for that matter that the amendment referred to muzzleloaders.

Never forget, the NRA exists not to protect the rights of gun owners, but solely to protect the rights of gun manufacturers to sell anything they can make. They care nothing about anything except corporate profits. Gun owners who support the NRA make up possibly the biggest bunch of suckers in the country, right behind Catholics.

Green Eagle,

Do you mean "catholics" who support the NRA??? A one sentence of levity to take the mind off of the daily gun murders.

We are Gun Junkies. Everyone around the world, even "Our" Enemies, knows this:

"America is absolutely awash in easily obtainable firearms." Al Qaida

Last year in Illinois Republicans voted that the Freedom of Terrorists and Criminals to get guns was more important than the lives of their constituents.

In a party-line vote of 21-11, the committee Republicans killed an amendment from Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) that would have blocked firearm purchases by those on the FBI's terrorist watch list

Just as Bush needed bin-Laden alive to get re-elected, Republicans use crime and terrorism to frighten sheeple into herding under their "protection".

Don't worry about drug gangs, deranged sociopaths, and terrorists getting weapons. The real enemies are liberals, educators, public employees, and unions. THEY are the un-American threats to everything good and decent that the Republicans embody.

Yeah, all those little chips into background checks get conveinently ignored when the NRA's handiwork comes back and murders dozens of innocents.

I don't think a background check would have caught James Holmes, although something should have been flagged by the 6000+ rounds of ammo purchased.

But, maybe when the families of the murdered and victims of gun violence get together and sue gun makers and gun dealers we can stem the tide.

It won't be justice but maybe it'll stop the blood money flowing into the coffers of the NRA and Gun Peddlers.
