    This is how silly the lawmakers are getting in their attack on guns and groups like the NRA.

    Conn. senator wants Fox to pull plug on NRA race

    FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A U.S. senator from Connecticut has sent a letter to media mogul Rupert Murdoch asking that Fox network not broadcast Saturday night's NASCAR Sprint Cup race sponsored by the National Rifle Association.

    Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy wrote to the News Corp. chief that the race is taking place during Senate consideration of legislation to reduce gun violence in the wake of the elementary school shootings last December in Newtown, Conn. Murphy said the race will give national attention ``to an organization that has been the face of one side of this heated debate.''

    Fox officials declined comment Thursday. The NRA 500 from Texas Motor Speedway will be broadcast as scheduled.

    Totally agree with you!

    There is a lot of hate out there for the NRA. Even though "they" may not represent everything we would like them to as gun owners and shooters, "they", among other things (youth instruction, instructor certification, club insurance, general promotion, etc.), offer the opposition a huge target on thier backs for the antis to point at while letting the rest of us (this includes other organizations) grt a pass to go about thier business, namely, opposing gun control.

    before the brass even hit the ground in Newtown, the media had made up its mind to blame the NRA, as if they put the gun in Lanza's hand and made him pull the trigger. Most of the idiots criticizing this mythically nefarious NRA had probably never even been aware of its existence until a few months ago

    If the antigun people didn't hate the NRA I would be worried.


    Really, it's fair, I'm a NRA life member and I hate everything about the anti gun crowd. I wouldn't give them a bucket of water if they were on fire.
    So, if they do not hate me, then I must be doing something wrong.

    I have never watched a NASCAR race. I know nothing about the sport. I will watch this one.

    The NRA message does not fit with the gun control crowd's message. Therefore, they do not want it broadcasted.

    Keep those without knowledge ignorant of the facts.

    It's just a bunch of expert drivers making left turns at 200 mph :)

    But now they're sponsored by one of ours.

    I want those who are anti-gun to openly hate the NRA. It makes it easy for me to identify my enemies.

    I am also sick and tired of hearing about Sandy Hook. I am sorry for those who lost family to a deranged mentally ill killer but sick of hearing it over and over again as they try to usurp the rights of 80 million legal and responsible gun owners. Many of those who oppose gun ownership really need to get a life and stay out of my life.

    At first I was irritated that so many gun control people continued to demonize the NRA, believing that all pro-RKBA actions in the country are the result of NRA manipulation. I was angry that so many people could completely fail to realize that it is US CITIZENS who are standing up for a BASIC CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT that are responsible for those actions.

    After the last couple months, though, I am finding it strangely amusing that gun-control folks are so focused in their rage and actions on fighting, in effect, a straw man. Many gun control advocates would be thrilled to be able to take down, or diminish the NRA -- and most of them would feel like they've 'won' if they did that. Unfortunately for them, if the NRA is 'beaten', those US citizens with a desire to protect their Constitutional rights are still there.

    I say let idiots waste time, money, and effort at hating the NRA.

    It always amazes me that the same people who demonize the NRA(org that represents millions), champion the efforts of a tryanical billionaire.

    Typical anti-gun stupidity

    When I heard this on the news yesterday I was at first amazed, then amused, then mildly afraid. The degree of hatred some of these people have for guns and gun owners knows no limits.

    Firearm's connection aside, what business would the Senate have interfering with the operations of NASCAR? Commerce clause? General welfare clause?

    The anti-gun movement seriously believes their position is THE valid position. They will assert their beliefs into every aspect of life that has any connection with any sort of firearm.

    They will not stop until all privately held firearms are eliminated, and who can predict where they'll take the fight once they've eviscerated 2A?

    The thing that amazes me the most is the extent that those in government, who are anti-gun, will go to eviscerate guns from the general public. Suspensions at school for making the sign of a gun with your fingers, trying to ban NRA sponsorship of an event, etc. In one generation, anything associated with guns will be so anti-society that repealing the second amendment will be a slam dunk. They know the present gun society will not accept this and we will fight tooth and nail but give it a generation of anti-gun brain washing and our second amendment will be nothing more than a question on a history quiz about amendments no longer in use.

    That's right, our best line of defense is getting more people and more kids into the shooting sports, hunting, plinking or whatever suits your fancy.

    Note: When they hate the NRA they are really hating American gun owners because we are the NRA, so this politician simply is showing his true colors.

    Anti-gun nuts claim the NRA is leading conservative legislators around by the short hairs....well, the Brady Bunch and Bloomberg Bafoons are leading the left wingers around by the short hairs.

    These legislators hate what Brady and Bloomberg tell them to hate, they vote how Brady and Bloomberg tell them to vote. It is obvious these pawns don't think for themselves. Just look at all the times they have shown utter and complete lack of knowledge about the items they are trying to legislate.

    I got into it last night with a liberal who was offended by the NRA 400. I told him "at least they didn't call it the Bushmaster 223. And he went in and on about how to NRA makes money off of people dying. I asked him to prove it. I asked him to give me the name of the last NRA anyone outside of self defense. I also notified him that there is no way the NRA makes money off of people dying. They aren't hit man. You can't go to the NRA store and buy unregistered guns to go kill innocent people.

    Needless to say he ran out of ignorant things to talk about

    I don't understand how people think what they say is true

    It's good to see this thread, because some of y'all are finally waking up to a basic truth.

    Anti-gunners don't hate guns.

    They hate us.

    They hate you, personally, with a purple-raging passion.

    Learn it, accept it, embrace it.
