  1. Insane. Crazy. Evil. Not to mention, profit oriented whores. And I read yesterday that there is a six month wait for semi-automatics and assault weapons in the U.S., since the latest multiple murder of babies. The NRA is responsible for encouraging this madness and the blood squarely rests with their evil ass organization.

  2. The stats reflect the cost in collateral damage from the NRA broadening the meaning and intent of the 2nd Amendment.

  3. No, they are not crazy. They exist to maximize the profits of weapon manufacturers, and other than that, they don't care in any way about the effects of their behavior. Dead children do not donate millions of dollars to the NRA; gun manufacturers do. Consequently, profits matter to them, while life does not.

  5. I am greatly weighed down by your opinions for that specific tale. A additional deeper and staged expertise could well be very fine for me
