    Have to agree with this.

    They're fighting a cultural war. In the anti mind, a typical gun owner is an uneducated, racist, hillbilly, despite the fact that people from all racial, social, and economic classes own guns.

    If they didn't make massive pushes like they are now, it would be easier for them to just whittle gun rights down over a few years. Instead their actions have united gun owners, making anti-gun legislation harder to pass.
    But, as others have said, in a generation or two, they will have no problem completely destroying the 2nd Amendment, as our current educational system and media are making it look like some archaic thing that no longer applies in our new, "enlightened" world.

    What pisses me off is that we now have the government stepping in even more and telling people how to run their businesses. The last I checked this is supposed to be a free country and if Fox and the NRA want to enter into any deals with each other than as a free society they have that option. A government official of any kind trying to step in and stop such a deal IMO is abusing his powers and should therefore lose his position.

    Why? Are they scared?

    They are... Scared of the firepower both at the Lobbying level and the 4 MM+ individual members owning arms.

    What is ironic is that ONLY 4 million+ members out of about 15 - 20X that number of citizens that own arms and are not members are causing such an organized fearful reaction.

    There is no love of, or for, Individual Freedom in this Nation anymore, apparently.

    Can we get the membership numbers to top 5 million? I think we can and must. 2014 elections are right around the corner. Wondering if "angry white gunowners" (to use a 20 year old phrase) can pull off another '94 mid-term election sweep? If it could be done, will the newcomers in office hold the line on RKBA as well as the other issues that really need some thoughtful redressing to get the Republic and economy back on track? (I know, stick to RKBA issues here)

    If there is any silver lining to the present state of anti-gun affairs, it is that finally we are seeing the level of hate and ignorance held by those who have come out of the woodwork to demand the new laws that have been proposed. I doubt many of them, especially those who are elected office-holders, would have ever felt comfortable showing their true feeings before now. Apparently they take comfort in numbers.

    Now it is up to us to remember what we are witnessing.

    The anti gun crowd gets to scream for infringement of our rights at 6 pm every night but we celebrate our rights and they want to take it off the air. I can not wait until the next election.

    No. His letter has no legal weight. It's a polite request that can be ignored. If Congress had passed a law on this issue, then that would be a 1st violation.

    The anti-gunners also feel that those who agree with the Second Amendment don't deserve the protections spelled out in the other amendments (like the 1st or the 4th). My choice of entertainment is a free speech issue. Plus many "proposals" for gun control think that random home inspections of one’s safe and storage is "common sense". When will the foolishness stop?

    Additionally, I find it strange that the original post is from Comcast / xfinity. Comcast is already known to be anti-gun. Are they taking issue with NASCAR saying they have no official position on gun rights?

    No one in Congress and most of the people honor and respect this part of the Constitution. It is revered as part of who we are and what makes us the greatest nation on earth.

    How is it that the government, media and half of the citizens of this country think nothing of stepping on the 2nd amendment as if it is evil and out dated?

    If religion X was 10% of our population and a mass murder was committed by a zealot of religion X and the government decided to have anyone who practices religion X to register, get a card to show their affiliation, to limit gatherings to 10 or less and limit the places they can practice their faith, the country would be in an uproar and cry foul! "The government can't do that! It's part of the Constitution and part of what makes us great!" The government would not even consider such a move but here we are defending another right they want to stomp on. It makes no sense.

    If North Korea launches a nuke towards Hawaii, will the government order every citizen of Korean heritage to an internment camp like they did to the Japanese in WWII? Did we learn from that or are they dumb enough to call it an act of terrorism and impose the Patriot Act? I never wore a tin foil hat before but these tactics of late have made me realize that the government isn't of the people, by the people, for the people any more. They want total control and are actively starting the process. I'm surprised Obama hasn't proposed an amendment to remove the 2 limit term on the presidency. I truly believe he wants to be The King.

    When the NRA sponsoring a NASCAR race I thought that was a great idea. I personally would like to see NASCAR S&W Magnum 500. Or a Strum Ruger IRL GP 100 race. Just to watch the grabber simmer to a rolling boil!

    Oh and yes I'm a proud member of the NRA and I put the sticker on my car.

    I hate the NRA because they want to turn schools into prisons.

    No, the NRA wants to prevent them from being slaughterhouses, and so do I.

    I stand by what I wrote. Armed guards, cops and security camera's everywhere isn't a way to raise children. Unless you're educating them to live in a police state.

    So the NRA and Obama agree with each other regarding adding security in schools. I don't.

    I have heard it said more than once, "The Second Ammendment protects all the others". Without the Second how long will we have the others? Not long I suspect. Now they go after the NRA's First Ammendment right of free speech as well as Fox News.

    These people are marginalizing gun owners. First they start with stereotypes (see Bloomberg's ads), followed by villifying a group for a perceived action (Sandy Hook). They then move to pass legislation that affects the subgroup. Nazi Germany did it to the Jews in only six years.
