    Not to derail the thread too much, but I am an NRA member and a GOA member as well. I love the NRA for the magazine, but I like the advocacy of GOA a lot better.

    I like GOA much better. The NRA has gone off the reservation a little in the last decade or so.

    I agree with this.

    Indeed. I am trying to find an article about the Heller case I read a while back. Basically it said the NRA was not on board with it at all, and it was the Institute for Justice and GOA that did most of the work. Naturally, the NRA took credit ...

    Not sure about that -- I read quite a bit about the NRA and its support of Heller.

    Here we go. This is the article I read.

The Parker lawyers received backroom visits from allies of the NRA before their case was filed, discouraging them from going forward. The Supreme Court (which still had Sandra Day O’Conner back then) would not reliably deliver a victory, they argued, and an authoritative statement from the Supremes that the Second Amendment did not protect an individual right could prove devastating to the long-term cause.

    What actually soured me on the NRA was when the kid accidentally shot another kid to death, while showing his gun, in a classroom in Flint, Michigan. Heston picked the day of the kid's funeral for the NRA rally.

    I have no problem with gun advocacy. There are just times when people need to use their heads, and allow the bereaved to mourn. This incident was a black eye for the whole NRA, in what could have otherwise been a great event, had Heston not been so calloused as to pick that kid's funeral day for the rally. Michael Moore, with his anti-gun agenda, was able to get a lot of mileage out of this huge blunder.

    Please stop right there. As far as gun ownership goes Canada has a much lower percentage than the U.S. - 10% of the population(3.3 million gun owners). As opposed to 80 million americans who are gun owners(NRA statistics). That is almost 30% of the population. Same goes for Norway.

    So we're done with the intelligent part of the debate then. Just going into hyperbole and ridiculousness, k.
