        Nope. Most NRA members are law-abiding, tax-paying, red-blooded, native-born, God-fearing American citizens that follow the law and safety rules. Your disparagement of the NRA is based upon ignorance and frankly, hate. There's something wrong with that, and I invite you to go find out what that is and fix it.

        Nonsense. Let's try following the law. The law clearly states that those adjudicated as mentally ill cannot own weapons. How about we repair our broken mental health system, and then comply with the law and report these individuals as required by the United States Code, Title 18. Those determined to be mentally defective may not purchase firearms. This standard must be enforced and properly resourced by state and federal governments to create better reporting of these individuals to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to prevent further tragedies. That way, we follow the law and allow judges and mental health professionals to advise law enforcement and the NICS as to who should have access to firearms, instead of the uninformed ramblings of the biased stomping on the rights of their fellow citizens.
