Not the same goal posts. The original question was about mass murders of school children. Now you change the topic to over all gun deaths. Different problem. Different remedy.

You seem to think we can't want to do something about overall firearms deaths AND school mass shootings. That's incredibly stupid.

As far as "changing the topic," this is a new thread, or are you too stupid to notice that, too?

Continue with your whining. Accomplish nothing.

The only one whining here is you, son.

Breaking news for you: Forums are not the entire world. Just because someone is discussing something in a discussion forum doesn't mean nothing else is going on.

And this time, things are happening. That's why you are freaked the hell out. You are desperate to shut down the conversation. It must be terrible living in such constant fear.

Quit whining, already.

Even Dickey changed his mind eventually:

"We were on opposite sides of the heated battle 16 years ago, but we are in strong agreement now that scientific research should be conducted into preventing firearm injuries and that ways to prevent firearm deaths can be found without encroaching on the rights of legitimate gun owners," they wrote.

It was stupid to block research. Research doesn't make laws, doesn't take any guns away, but does gather data to make better decisions. The NRA didn't then, and still doesn't, want any facts or data, just more guns.

Funny how the gun lobby has blocked research... and made it impossible to sue gun manufacturers. It's like they're trying to hide something.

I've read that there's some evidence of Russian money-laundering through the NRA. If true, then the question is for how long? Has the NRA become a "useful idiot" to Russia? It's certainly been a strong tool for dividing the nation.

This is a typical fake-news post that ignores basic facts.  The headline looks great, guaranteed to attract readers who will see the ads.  But totally misleading.

Embedded in the article is this sentence (emphasis mine):  "But while the correlation is clear, there is little hard evidence of cause and effect."

So they basically misrepresented the situation to everyone.

Right. And, in your world, the government is totally corrupt, except for your Furher, the news media is all about "fake" news, but, the NRA is as pure as the driven snow and can do no wrong. Too bad. The NRA used to be about gun safety and common sense gun laws, now, they're just a marketing arm of death incorporated....
