The trashiest organization of redneck scum I've ever seen. Deaths from privately owned guns are on their hands for selfishly bribing legislators to prevent gun control laws and prevent the CDC from doing research on firearm deaths. KYS NRA you're not helping anyone.

not that many but its the rednecks that refuse to consider basic gun control which allows the mentally ill to obtain destructive guns.

In some states you can walk into your local walmart and buy an m16 no background checks or anything.

Guess you have never met black people. They shoot each other everyday in Chicago and Detroit. Look up how many have been shot or killed last year in Chicago. Don't think the guns made them do it.
2018-02-15 04:23
Easy access to guns definitely makes it easier though. There's a reason why school shootings aren't much of an issue in Canada, and it's not cultural differences, as the majority of culture in Canada overlaps with culture in the USA

Also look at the black and Hispanic populations in Canada vs the US. There is your answer.
2018-02-18 05:10
School shootings are historically committed by white people. Violent crime rates are very much bolstered by black and hispanic communities, but school shootings specifically aren't.
2018-02-18 19:53
mass shootings in general specifically aren't. The occasional dead gang member is no where near the same as 20 dead at the same rate. 18 school shootings this year alone :(.
2018-02-18 19:55
For every mass shooting that ends with more than 10 people dead, there are 50 smaller scale shootings committed by POC. I still think that the school shootings are more important to fix, since most of these smaller scale shootings aren't victimizing innocent people.
2018-02-18 19:57
There has been 18 "school shootings" but only 2 of them were mass shootings Mass means 3 or more people injured or killed
2018-02-18 20:27
I didn't say they were all mass shootings, but still that's 18 school shootings in 7 weeks. That's dozens of innocent kids dying.
2018-02-18 20:27
You take out Florida and it's less than 10
2018-02-18 20:28
Still it's kids who have their whole lives ahead of them dead. No way to make it seem not bad no matter how hard you try.
2018-02-18 20:29
That's true but guns in the US save thousands of lives every year in the hands of normal civilians. If evil people want to kill people they will with guns legal or not. They will always find a way.
2018-02-18 20:32
That's just false. First off guns do not "save thousands of lives every year". Guns can't save lives they can only take lives. Secondly, look at Canada, look at Australis, look at England, look at any country without guns and tell me how many mass shootings they have.
2018-02-18 20:34
They don't have shootings but they have acid attacks, bomb attacks, car attacks, they have mass murders just not with guns. Honestly a truck or bomb in a crowd is much more dangerous than a gun. Secondly, guns can save lives you don't need to shoot it, imagine a burglar with a knife enters your house all you need to do is rack your shotgun loudly and his ass will be gone in seconds.
2018-02-18 20:37
Yeah and America also has acid attacks, bomb attacks, car attacks, and mass murders just not with guns. People with trucks or a bomb in a crowd still happen in the US. We also have guns though. That is unnecessary risk to take. False. Just complete lies. You're trying to use a hypothetical to back up your case. Go back to watching Fox News.
2018-02-18 20:39
I don't watch Fox news. You are ignorant so I will stop talking to you now

Its stupid how people ignore the context in which the second amendment was written, to allow Americans to have muskets to repel Native and potential British attacks yet people take it the completely wrong way.
2018-02-15 02:24
+1 Exactly. They conveniently leave out the 'well-regulated" part.
2018-02-15 02:34
The US is a common law country and that language only makes sense when you understand the history of the common law militia as it arose in England. A common law militia was run by private citizens for the express purpose of overthrowing a tyrannical government. A well regulated militia, in that sense, would involve private ownership of things like tanks and even fighter jets.

Jim Bob isn't part of the 2/3rds of gun deaths each year by suicide. Jim Bob isn't part of the approx. 93% of guns bought illegally. Jim Bob can shoot a cockroach at 200 yards and knows how to cook it for dinner. The majority of gun violence in the U.S. is caused by criminals who don't obey the law regardless. Jim Bob is a dumb hillbilly who can follow the rules....... The 2nd amendment calls for being "well regulated". The current gun laws are well regulated. Can more be done, of course, but guns are not the problem just a tool that will become something else. It's in the heart and that requires a different approach......imo.
2018-02-15 04:17
Correction. Guns are regulated. They are NOT well regulated. They were created in the amendment when the purpose was to allow a provision for people on the frontier to defend themselves against Indian Uprisings and the possibility of GB coming back. That's why what's referenced is "a well-regulated militia". This law was put in place at a time when the very fastest reloaders could shoot 3x a minute. In that time some shooter might get off 2 shots before being taken down. Now a kid can slap in a 50--round mag and mow down anyone trying to take him down, and 10 of his friends beside him. About 50% of gun deaths are suicides. The highest rates of gun-related homicides take place in states with lax gun laws. 19 of the top 20 states homicide rates are those with loose laws. 16 of the top 20 states with the lowest gun-related homicides are those with stricter gun laws. Those are meaningful statistics. Yes, illegally-purchased firearms are obviously a problem, but these mass shootings are carried out by people legally purchasing them. Considering "assault-style" rifles are the number one type of gun being used for these mass shootings, it should behoove us to limit those one way or another. "Freedom" is a poor excuse when Freedom is what's being violated when a person loses their life. There are countries with large numbers of firearms, but they don't have the problem we do. They have a different attitude about guns and tend to have stricter laws. It's the very looseness of the laws that is a driving force behind the excessive violence we see. It's not the sole reason, but a person waving around a knife can't kill 17 school children.

A well regulated militia is in regards to a body of people who follow gun laws accordingly. This is regulated and followed by millions of people. Guns are not regulated. Heck, our government gives them away like it's bags of rice in a war zone. We both agree more can be done. My point is if the laws are broken, no regulation can stop the non-sense. People are killed in cars everyday. Do we ban cars because some people are insane and will drive a box van down a busy market. It's just not feasible to ban everything. 19 killed in 2016 from knife attack in Japan. Japan didn't take all kitchen knives away. They didn't allow only dull knives. What happened is tragic and innocent lives lost for no reason. This is much more complicated than just banning certain styles or tightening restrictions. These can help in some ways but it boils down to what the brain and heart are thinking. Cane and Able bro.... The mind is what needs to be fixed. This is the war not the battle. You are my brother my friend!
2018-02-15 05:26
I'm not suggesting we ban everything. However, it should be obvious that more can be done. Obviously the law is broken and needs fixed. I'd suggest the 2nd Amendment has outgrown it's efficacy and needs amending itself. However, short of that we can certainly do such things as start heavily taxing ammo, and/or banning private sales, and/or outlawing assault-style rifles (as was done under Reagan). There are measures we can take. Even a glance outside our borders will show that we are apart in this and that other nations have laws in place that are working. The common rhetoric among gun apologists is that we can't change any laws because people will just use something else. Okay... Fine. Let's test that assumption. No other nation has the level of gun violence we do. It is complicated, but doing nothing is being complicit. I'm not suggesting taking all guns away, as I said. But, there definitely are things that can be done. Outlawing bump-stocks would save some lives. Taxing ammo to a punitive measure would save lives. Disallowing those with mental illness or that have a history of domestic abuse (one indicator of future "badness"), would save lives (though, Trump cancelled that). Bio-locks on triggers would save lives (but the NRA calls for manufacturer boycotts when they release those). There is something we can do. Not all control measures are "taking my guns away" or "attacking the constitution". Not attacking you. Just frustrated at all this shit and wanting it to stop. We can't stop it all, but it's obvious to me looking at other nations that SOMETHING can be done, and I'm so sick and tired of the "thoughts and prayers" meme and the "now is not the time to talk about this" and the "don't politicize it". It sickens me the excuses made not to do something.
2018-02-15 16:45
Actually Americans need guns to protect ourselves from all the wild animals running around in our country. This is why we carry guns. They don't show you these videos on the nationwide media or worldwide media but this is what's really going on in a lot of our cities. youtube.com/watch?v=-wKek1oOkaY youtube.com/watch?v=GwmfMrG-uFQ youtube.com/watch?v=wepmrX9n1uw Why do they get profiled?

You're full on retarded. You talk about ignoring context in the same breath in which you ignore context. If the musket was the standard military infantry firearm used at the writing of the document, it would follow that the populace are to have the standard military infantry firearm. Today, that would be a fully automatic 5.56 M4A1. Your logic expands gun rights.
2018-02-15 04:35
Wrong. It was created to defend against a government who would turn against the population not to defend against the British. That isn't a problem in the modern day so it eliminates the only purpose of it.

2018-02-21 03:28
Dude. You're from Canada. You should be better educated. I was educated in Canada. I took political science in college. What the hell's happened to education up there since I left? The Fascists were NOT Left at all. The Left in Germany were the Socialists and the Communists. The "Socialist" in the name didn't mean they actually promoted socialism. They didn't. Communists were promoting the owner of the means of production be "the people". That's why there were such a radical movement. I hate that I have to keep educating people on this. Gets tiring. Because Hannity and Jones says they were Left-Wing doesn't make them so. Know what "Authoritarian Left" equals? Communism. The Nazi's and the Communists were enemies. As soon as Hitler came into power, his first actions were to attack the Socialist parties and outlaw them. 1. The owners of the means of production in Germany was ALWAYS who they'd been prior to the rise of the Nazi's. They were never moved to the common laborer. 2. Hitler mandated that all labor unions be moved into a single national labor union. And as soon as they did, he banned that labor union. 3. Hitler and the Nazi's used as a foundation the instilling of distrust in the news media. This is a right-wing thing, not left-wing. 4. Do you forget the book burning? That was in coordination with educational material deemed offensive. Right-wing, not left. 5. They did continue Weimar Republic social welfare programs, but continually restricted who could use them. 6. Worker strikes were made illegal. That's right-wing. 7. Soon after taking power the Nazi's banned the Social Democratic Party (who were Socialists), and sent it's leaders to concentration camps. 8. Socialism's primary goal was replacing a class-based system with an egalitarian one. The Nazi's completely ignored this. 9. Within the Nazi party, anyone defending the tenets of Socialism were ejected from the party. Some were killed instead. Did HItler speak of socialism? Sure. This is how he looked at it: "Socialism! What does socialism really mean? If people have something to eat and their pleasures, then they have their socialism." He upheld private property, individual entrepreneurship, and economic competition. Those are NOT Socialist ideals. He disapproved of trade unions and of any interference of workers in the freedom of owners and managers. Pretty clear that despite a few words he said early on, his actions proved he was anything BUT Left-Wing.

Nice Job you tucking retard. Do you seriously fucking think that strict gun control will solve these problems? If you are committed to killing people than your not gonna say “Oh shit harsh gun laws looks like I can’t shoot up a school,” If someone is that committed to taking human life then the law will not stop them. If anything we should more guns because then we can defend against these threats.
2018-02-15 04:35
congrats. The NRA would love you. They treasure people that "explain" that more guns, not less guns make us all safer. Because that's obviously working. More guns. Yay. Surely with so many more guns people aren't going to use them? Surely. LOLOL
2018-02-15 04:39
"Do you seriously think that strict gun control will solve these problems?" Actually yes. You can't shoot someone if you don't have a gun. Look at Australia, England, and Canada as good examples of no guns = no mass shootings. Dumb redneck.

” 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.” This sentence here the second amendment is to over throw a tyrannical government that is taking the “free” out of “free state.” Also saying that the NRA is the fault for all of these shootings is like saying the US created the Black Plague. Nothing to do with it, want to know why it has nothing to do with it ? Because not a single mass-shooter has ever been affiliated with the NRA and it’s fact. Also what does the CDC (Centers for disease control and prevention) have to do with these firearm deaths, gun deaths, when statistically speaking 60+% of gun deaths are suicide.
2018-02-15 02:44
talking assault rifles, not handguns. no one kills themselves with an assault rifle. rifles are the problem
2018-02-15 02:51
Except you can't know if a shooter was or wasn't associated with the NRA because the NRA does not release its membership rolls.
2018-02-15 02:52
I can tell you no NRA members shoot up schools
2018-02-15 03:00
Isn't it true that literally anyone can join the NRA? And since the NRA (understandably) won't release lists of its members, literally nobody could say whether or not an NRA member shot up a school.
2018-02-15 03:06
no that is not true, and even if you don't own a gun you can still be in the NRA
2018-02-15 03:07
It actually is true. As long as you aren't a resident of a country at war with the US, you can become a member of the NRA by buying a membership. I'm not saying any shooters WERE in the NRA. But nobody (except executives of the NRA) could say for sure.
2018-02-15 03:10
they wouldnt be, no criminal would join the NRA
2018-02-15 03:13
That's absurd. They could if they wanted to. I thought criminals didn't respect rules?
2018-02-15 03:15
they could but they wouldnt because then they would have information on them and how they obtained their weapon

imo the 'militia' part is even more important than the 'well regulated' part. states were supposed to have their own army reserve, with a bunch of redblooded cornfed beefcakes who would pick up arms if the federal govt or indeed the english or the french came for their shit. also back when that was written the US didnt really have an army in the sense that countries do today. that was invented around WW1. back in those days an army was just a bunch of dudes conscripted from local villages with a core of veterans. in that situation its convenient if those dudes you conscript know how to handle a rifle and already own one. it was necessary for the security of the state. these days, what are you going to defend with an assault rifle, when the russians or the chinese or the us govt show up with tanks and drones and WMDs?

I don't believe that tbh... How are guns even supposed to defend anyone? 99% of the time, the criminal can quietly break into your home at night, before you can do anything they already have you at gunpoint.

No gunzones are the stupidest things I have ever seen because criminals like this kid today had the only weapon and nobody could defend themselves.

That literally leaves an adult with a gun in a room full of kids in every single classroom in America. Should the students have guns too just in case their teacher goes postal? That's one of the worst ideas I've heard in my life.
2018-02-15 21:03
Have you ever heard of a teacher murdering students in a mass shooting? It wouldnt be every teacher either. Just the ones that want to have a protection plan if the worst case scenario shoukd happen. They would obviously need training. Open your eyes to the possibility of a solution that isnt taking guns out of every law abiding citizens hand.

Most teachers don't bring guns to school and are certainly not allowed. Do you really think not one teacher would snap if millions of them were given guns? That's 30 unarmed targets right there. This country is turning into a violent shithole. Yearly murder rate is 5 per 100000. The UK is at 1.3. Japan is at 0.3 or lower. States with more guns have lower life expectancy and higher crime. worldlifeexpectancy.com/usa/life-expecta.. Look at all that red by bible belt...
2018-02-16 05:04
A life expectancy map that covers 6 years of life... clearly guns are the sole reason why its 74 towards the south. I dont think you get the teachers with guns. It wont be every teachers only those who volunteer to protect the school if there is a emergency. You dont think a teacher can bring a gun in the classroom now? Your only argument about the teachers being armed is what if a teacher goes crazy and shoots kids... they would do it no matter what. You think all these kids got permission and were trained to bring a gun to school and that is why they shoot other students? Now let me say this for a 4th time because you dont seem to get that not every teacher would get a gun. Only the ones who pass a stringent background check and are willing to go through extensive training.

Okay I understand what you're saying. I guess that could work, but I'd rather just have security at every entrance of the school. That's the only real way for everyone to feel safe.

At this point and time, it is impossible to limit the amount of guns in the U.S. If you were to try and take guns away from citizens it would cause a panic, probably starting multiple militias along with it. So what I would do is limit who can get/keep a gun, and have annual mental checks for the gun owners. (like you have to have a mental check before you can own a gun, and every lets say 5-10 years have another check.)

fire arms licences work in other countries. here we have strict gun laws yet i own guns and have my licences. In Australia before gun control laws we had a bunch of mass shootings and since we have had barely any. in my opinion fully automatic weapons should be illegal everywhere (outside of military/police use) high caliber rifles should be illegal (or very heavily regulated) and most semi Automatic weapons (mainly handguns) should also be regulated heavily. and background checks and waiting times should be compulsory when purchasing a gun, bad criminal record = no gun. also Humans act on Impulse, use this as an example some guy pisses another guy off and he goes fuck him hes really made me made im going to shoot him (bit extreme but whatever) he goes to a gun shop and buys a gun, he goes and shoots him dead. later on the police arrest him and its made public he has a violent criminal record, so with the background check he wouldn't have been able to buy that gun, same with the waiting time, some guy pisses him off (no criminal record this time) he acts on impulse and tries to buy a gun, gets told there is a 14 day wait before he can get his gun, 14 days later they have actually made up and he no longer wants to shoot him. i don't understand why things like this get blocked?
2018-02-15 03:02
because some people make a lot of money by selling guns
2018-02-15 04:08
the reason its impossible is that your country produces so many guns. you cant reduce ownership without reducing supply. your govt is not going to go after the gun manufacturers. those guys pay them a lot of money.
2018-02-15 04:07
Australia literally implemented harsh gun control. People could sell their guns to the government or they could break the law.

i just dont understand the whole "cant change the 2nd amendment" argument.... an amendment is a change in policy so the 2nd amendment can be changed.

It's nothing more than a talking point. If they were to spend more money on fighting poverty and disease a significantly less amount of people would die. But instead they argue over a few hundred deaths over the span of a decade or so.

30k people a year homicide rate doesnt include suicides
2018-02-15 04:10
stop spreading fake news cuckboy and maybe post a source next time cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/homicide.htm
2018-02-15 04:56
imagine blaming an organization that isnt one of the top 10 donors to congress that advocates for legal gun ownership in abidance with the 2nd amendment and all gun laws in the US and helps to train people to use guns responsibly for the illegal actions of someone who would have failed a background check and committed a crime in a gun free zone
2018-02-15 03:03
Not disagreeing or agreeing, but if you haven’t been dissonant about a subject, you shouldn’t talk about it because you haven’t truly thought about it.
2018-02-15 03:03
Some facts for you triggered kid - It was illegal for him to buy the gun - It was illegal for him to take the gun to school - It was illegal for him to shoot people You really think making more things illegal will stop it? Next you will probably say we should make drugs illegal to stop drug overdoses or maybe make cars illegal since they kill more people than guns every year.

Should be harder to get a car though. Automobile related fatalities are a very real issue.

wow I bet the murderer is going to be so embarrassed he broke the law!
2018-02-15 03:14
Yeah I bet if he knew it was illegal to buy the gun, illegal to take it to school, and illegal to kill people that he would have just posted himself crying on instagram instead.

We should have a law that prevents people from committing murder! Maybe that will stop mass shootings!
2018-02-15 03:54

I know but i was saying that it's sad because it sounds legit
2018-02-20 16:57
it should be harder for someone to buy a gun illegally. this is easy atm because your country is home to some of the largest gun manufacturers on earth and there is ample supply.
2018-02-15 04:11
Is a common law phrase that is based on the formation of non governmental militias to protect against a tyrannical government. Any citizenry who desires governmental monopoly of firearms deserves and will eventually be ruled by a tyrannical government. Look, if guns are so bad then advocates of gun control should be pushing to disarm the government, as well. But they don't. Why not? Because "gun control" is just really about power and control of the population. if you favor "gun control" but aren't pushing to disarm government then you are a liar and a hypocrite.

Yes lets ban rifles and other large guns, because if someone is willing to commit mass murder, they'll obey the law and turn them in right?

Do you want us to ban all guns then? There are already background checks, and you need to have a permit, plus you can't bring them innto a lot of public areas such as schools
2018-02-15 05:28
Do you want to tell me criminals to illegal things!? It is almost as when we ban people from owning guns, criminals will find ways to get one.

America has the same constitution since 1789, i think it sums it all.
2018-02-15 21:38
Thats a good quality, loss of values and mass democracy ruined humanity from there on
2018-02-16 15:00
expected from liberals/democrats to use the deaths of ppl to push their political agenda
2018-02-15 21:46
psst here's my advice don't elect cuckservatives they wont lift a finger to fix this problem
2018-02-15 21:54
I would roll in a fucking tank if I could. If you dont want to have guns dont buy them, but dont force your shit on me.
2018-02-16 14:57
Im from the UK which probably has some of the tighest gun control regulations in the world so its perhaps hard for me to understand the situation the US is in. However, growing up, it was common for people to carry knives. More recently its been common for younger kids to use acid (mostly ammonia actually). Basically what im saying is that there will always be dickheads and so im not sure how much regulation helps.
