    I don't think it has anything to do with political payback. The people in office try to ban or severely firearms because they want the public disarmed, the individuals at home who are the useful idiots of these politicians genuinely fear or hate firearms as their reasoning for wanting firearms to be banned or severely restricted.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    we will have to disagree

    the NRA has spent lots of money supporting mostly conservative candidates. The current rantings by the left spend more time bashing the NRA than the criminals they claim they want to restrict

    I don't think any of them are concerned at all about you being armed. Frankly, they out arm you so much that it wouldn't matter at all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That is because conservatives stereotypically support 2nd amendment rights.

    The left is full of people who have an irrational fear or hatred of firearms.Of course they are going to bash the NRA.

    they also hate the amount of money the NRA funnels to politicians who tend to oppose their welfare socialist agenda

    One man can commit murder. But, the US military has nothing to fear from you having some guns.

    Ft. Hood and Aurora had shooters in custody. Newtown had sympathetic victims and a shooter who faced no challenge and died at his own hands. This is nothing more than some big old witch hunt to appease the pitchfork crowd. Obama signs his orders and the matter goes away.
