    The truth is, the vast majority of the American people support the President's plan to keep the most dangerous weapons out of the hands of criminals and those who would do harm, and most importantly out of our schools.

    While the House of Representatives' job is to represent the people, the NRA is a lobbying group who try to prevent that from happening - especially when the people support gun violence measures that would do nothing but keep society's most vulnerable members safe, while protecting our second amendment rights to hunting and keeping a gun for defense. What the NRA along with house republicans are doing is unconstitutional, and I would urge you to support a more worthwhile organization.

    What evidence do you have that the "vast majority of Americans" support banning any firearms? That happens to be one of the stated elements in the plan announced by the president in spite of his clear and public statement that "cheap handguns" not "assault weapons" were the what was being used in Chicago. The polls don't reflect this so how can the vast majority be claimed to be in support of it?

    The assertion that anything unconstitutional is being done by the NRA is absurd and I challenge you to support that contention with some facts.

    BTW, if you don't agree with all the NRA's positions or tactics, like the President's, then support the ILA (which is where we actually need to be sending support) or the SAF or JPFO or your state 2A organization. But do not sit on the sidelines and just throw stones.

    Walking, don't know if you received my PM's, but anyway the offer still stands if you change yer mind.

    Ya know, the information needed to sign up folks as a gift is alot to give out to a stranger and I can't blame anybody for not wanting to give all that out freely with all the I.D. theft out there. The NRA needs to devise a way so neither party sees the other's info. Maybe like an invitation page where you invite someone to join by email address, put in your financial info, then if that person accepts, they fill in their info, then it sends the invitation offerer a note saying it was accepted and they have been billed. EH, just a thought...

    My view on gun laws and policies is simple

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    In my opinion that means if the military has access to a firearm the populace should as well. I would probably never buy a fully automatic weapon, but that should be my choice not the governments.

    One of the most important things to me is firearm education and safety. I've let some anti-2a acquaintances shoot some of my guns before, and afterwards they were a lot less scared of guns because they weren't so foreign.

    I also believe that firearms education should start early. My son is currently 3 years old. We were out shooting an air rifle the other day and I told him to go reset the cans we were shooting at. He looked at me and told me to open the loading gate on the air rifle and point it in a safe direction before he was willing to go downrange. Made me proud.
