The part you really seem to be stuck on though isn't your lack of understanding of "commie" though. You also seem to be stuck on that whole NRA "not" being for the masses. It is. Because "for the masses" is a generic term and the NRA wants to promote civilian marksmanship, or the United States civilian population, that would be the "masses" of the United States. There is no wiggling or spinning going on bud. Im trying to educate you on political theory now so you may carry that knowledge with you and not continue to spout the nonsense you have posted far too many times already.
2) Lol!! Do you understand how lobbyists work? Wine and dining politicians is how it works bud. That way you make sure the right palms are greased when some dimwit like Feinstein decides to start yapping and an aggressive 2nd Term Obama to start writing EOs. No liberal will get their legislation pushed through because of those greased palms from the pro gun lobby. You don't like how lobbying works? Don't send your money to a lobbyist organization. You only have you to blame for sending your money there if you don't like them. And if you don't like the way they operate I suggest you not renew any membership you have if it is yearly, or tell them to remove your membership if you are a life member (that is what I am). It just sounds like crying on your end to me now that I understand you don't get how a lobbying organization works.
3) (eye roll) You understand that my statement about "legislating" something is that that is the only way for YOU to get what you want with background checks on SAFETY training. Short of that you are nothing but crying about the NRA NOT being redundant about background checks, and NOT violating a very important foundation of our legal system and assuming innocent before proven guilty, a principle you clearly have a problem with...which is sad because you wouldn't want to live in a nation where you are assumed guilty until proven innocent and proving your innocence means the burden of proof is on you rather than your accuser.
4) You "prove your innocence" to demonstrate a right. You are limited by the no "convicted felon" requirement, which is in fact a compromise and that is all within reason. You also must demonstrate your legality in purchasing your own firearm. You cannot be a felon and own a gun. Nor can you be declared mentally incapable of ownership. So basically the already established LAWs you mention already make it a redundancy for the NRA to background check members. Seriously. This whole concept is redundancy wrapped up in a giant repetitive circular 360 process. Why prove you are capable of legal gun ownership for training when you are not legally allowed to be an owner? Seems redundant. I also wonder why there has been no huge push for former NRA convicted felons?
5) As for the "NRA denial." A simple google search should take you 5 seconds if you are on a good connection. They are "denying" a "membership" relationship. Do you know what that means? He...nor his mother...were members. He had a "certificate" with his name on it. As you can find as a member...a template for these. I've also seen "NRA approved" certificates for clubs. So basically...a simple google search says the NRA certificate is.........irrelevant. If you wish to place blame on them...well I'm sorry but court of law would find the evidence circumstantial at best. So why relevance does the NRA have in reference to the Newtown Shooter?
Yes. I see anti NRA dogma in the guise of "responsibility." I don't like the NRA that much, but I see them for what they are. Lobbyists. Lobbyists are not hookers. They are the people who pay for the hookers...politicians. And in the case you are making against the NRA you have nothing rational or relevant.
The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.
back on topic, my point was the NRA attempted to deny any connection with Lanza which proved untrue. I also note many more professionally run schools do routine backround checks on students which the NRA doesn't do. They also keeps far better records on who attends and receives certificates than the NRA.
Nothing more, no take all the guns or punish the 'innocent'. none of the false arguments the radical Right throw up instead of discussing the issue at hand.
