“We must ask these difficult questions since the NRA champions a theme of guns for all. They mean ALL, and let’s consider that the genius to allowed the gun to fall into this child’s hands would probably pass a background check with flying colors.”
MM,even though you said ALL, I’m pretty sure you did not mean to include 4 year olds. But even eliminating them, your charge is inaccurate. The NRA does not want guns in the hands of “the genius who allowed the gun to fall into this child’s hands”. Here is a quote from Wayne Lapierre:
“We have a mental health system in this country that has completely and totally collapsed. We have no national database of these lunatics. … 23 states are still putting only a small number of records into the system and a lot of states are putting none. So when they go through the National Instant Check System and they go to try to screen out one of those lunatics, the records are not even in the system. [...]
We have backed the National Instant Check system, we have backed putting anyone adjudicated mentally incompetent into the system.”
He and the NRA do not believe everyone should be allowed to have a gun. We may not agree with everything he stands for, but give credit where credit is due.
