In addition to our own research Second Amendment Check has decided it is worth sharing the work of others.  Therefore, we are sharing the NRA-ILA’s lists of:

“Anti-Gun National Organizations”

“Anti-Gun Corporations/Corporate”

“Anti-Gun Publication and Media Outlets”

“Anti-Gun Individuals & Celebrities”

At Second Amendment Check we always attempt to source our material in our quest to provide objective and credible information.  Again, these lists have been compiled by the NRA-ILA, whom we recognize as a credible source of information.  Having said that, the exact criteria for making it onto the list are unclear, and the claims of being “Anti-Gun” have not been independently verified or validated by Second Amendment Check.

Also, after having had these lists published on their public website for many months, they have been removed after receiving some recent attention in the alternative media.  As noted in the Feb 11, 2013 update in this this Huffington Post article, the NRA-ILA has quietly removed the list from their website, but it can still be found in a web archive from January.  The reason for the removal of this list is not yet known.  Speculation suggests that the NRA ILA didn’t want to call unwanted attention to itself, or perhaps that it is reassessing or updating that list.  Second Amendment Check will attempt to get to the bottom of this mysterious disappearance.

NRA ILA List of Anti’s:

ANTI-GUN NATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS

The following organizations have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to anti-gun organizations. In many instances, these organizations lent their name in support of specific campaigns to pass anti-gun legislation such as the March 1995 HCI “Campaign to Protect Sane Gun Laws.” Many of these organizations were listed as “Campaign Partners,” for having pledged to fight any efforts to repeal the Brady Act and the Clinton “assault weapons” ban. All have officially endorsed anti-gun positions.

  1. Gun ownership is not a right and we don’t get along fine. Words don’t compare to gun killings.

    Reply

    • There’s this group of people – you may have heard of them. They’re called the Supreme Court of the United States. They have ruled that owning firearms for self defense is, in fact, a right of American citizens, and this right is protected from the powers of the government by the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

      But you, living in your own little world, will never acknowledge this simple fact. The same as you completely ignore all the other facts people here have presented to you time and time again.

      I hesitate to even call you a liberal anymore, because most liberals aren’t as willfully blind and stupid as you are, Larry. Most of them will, at least, try to refute the points made by people debating with them.

      But, you? You just cover your ears and scream, “Lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalaaaa! I can’t hear you!” like a willful child who needs his ass whipped.

  2. I don’t care what these group or individuals think about guns. I have a right to guns, just as they have a right to their opinion or thoughts. I won’t take your thoughts or opinions away, don’t try to take my gun rights away! We’ll get along fine.

      What an ignorant statement. Yes, there have been adjustments to certain amendments in the past and, yes, we might see some in the future (however broad that future is). And what purpose will it serve? What do you want to see done anyways… the 2A repealed? Not likely. Confiscation? No way in hell, as that will not bode over well with the masses. The general public already has a bitter perspective of the federal government, we dont need more loonies like Ammon Bundy & his clan holding hostages and declaring war on feds, politicians, etc. Do the tactful (and safe) thing and compromise.
      Obama’s already enacted the advanced background checks last month if I remember right. We will wait and see how that pans out. For now, just be grateful for what (little, but effective) actions were taken. Because I doubt us gun owners are willing to be manipulated any further.
      I couldn’t have worded it better than the way Morgan did. It is a cultural issue. Anyone who tells you otherwise would rather see a quick (but unsuccessful) fix than a successful solution that requires deep thought & cooperation among people of all forms and ideologies.

  6. But, deaths by firearms is about equal to vehicle accidents. Alarmingly high and largely preventable. I drive a car and I know and accept the risk of getting in an accident. If I smoked I would be accepting the risk of death by lung cancer. I don’t own a gun and I don’t accept the risk of being shot by someone who simply wants one.

    • What if you didn’t accept the risk of a car accident? What makes you think you have the right to deprive everyone else of the privilege of driving?

      And owning firearms isn’t even a privilege – it’s a right. It is not subject to legislation, polls, or opinions. Your waiving of your right to keep and bear arms in no way whatsoever gives you the right to deprive anyone else of their right.

  10. Wow, I see some legitimate reasoning in your response to my post. I think that’s a first in this blog. Am I privileged? Yes. But so are and so are the vast majority of US citizens. It’s all a matter of perspective. Just ask the millions of people in rural China, India, Pakistan, Venezuela, North Korea, etc. who have nothing and would die to be in this country at any level. I have seen with my own eyes. Those people are important too by the way. Don’t diminish the respect of your presence and power as a citizen of this country.

    I am criticized for pushing for gun control reform and I am willing to consider and potentially support a vast range of measures to fix this problem. But there is one monster in the way: the NRA. Builder of a brick wall. The quintessential bully. We need compromise on this issue and a way forward that protects our citizens and the NRA is offering none. Fighting it as hard as possible actually. Look no further to find real corruption that has it’s members blinded to the realities of the day.

    • “… I am willing to consider and potentially support a vast range of measures to fix this problem.”

      Really? How about having the mentally unstable added to the NICS background check? The NRA has been trying to push that through Congress for years, but the liberals won’t allow it, saying it’s an infringement of the mentally ill’s right to privacy.

      • This is why I feel as though the NRA is merely a patsy for the lawmakers’ failures in pushing what they perceive to be ‘reasonable’ regulation, but that regulation is (typically) either shot down or fails to have a lasting effect if implemented.

        Reply

        • I don’t know about that… the NICS check seems to be sticking around, even though it’s largely ineffective at stopping gun crime, and the NRA is the organization that pushed for it in favor of that atrocious waiting period they used to have.

          But that’s only one example, and I do see your point on other fronts. I really just wish everyone could have a rational dialogue on this subject without the posturing and ignorant (and blatant) lies. It never fails to disgust me when someone who has never even fired a gun feels qualified to have an opinion on legislation concerning the issue. How many people would feel they have an informed opinion on car accidents if they lived their lives rarely coming into contact with a vehicle or driver, and never having driven themselves? But guns… all of a sudden, everyone’s an expert.

          Reply

    • Yes, we need a compromise but I do feel as though the mainstream (leftist) media tends to depict the NRA as some ill-intentioned boogeyman who will resort to extreme measures to censor vital info on ‘gun violence’. If that IS the case, *IF*, (there is some evidence to back up that theory, and some evidence to debunk the theory), then we hold the NRA accountable, not the everyday law-abiding citizens themselves and certainly not through… again LAWS, LAWS & LAWS, only because that shows how weak-minded we are (us citizens & those in charge, lawmakers, etc), our willingness to settle for the easiest and most convenient option (even if that convenient option proves relatively futile in the long run). In my 36 years, I have seen laws fail time and time again for varying reasons that would drag on if I were to elaborate, but education… education has had a far more efficient track record (from my subjective experience) than fear-mongering perpetrated by ‘authorities’ and ‘upholders of the law’… I think it’s human nature. I think an OVERABUNDANCE of laws equate to repression and repression… well, just look at my home southern state (Alabama) and its Abstinence Only education. Gun laws = repression. Gun education = freedom and (relative) security.

      • Yeah and as far as my ‘leftist media’ remarks, I was not referring to FAUX News, that aspect of our somewhat broad media establishment. I lean pretty far to the left socially with predominantly liberal/progressive viewpoints (again I am a hippie), but this whole ‘gun control’ narrative, while well-intentioned on the surface, is a heavily misguided failed ideology proposed by my fellow liberals and would rather be re-adjusted into an elaborate education campaign because, yes, gun-related tragedies are a sad part of American life (though nowhere near as common as drownings, heart attacks, other preventable deaths) but education (compassion) trumps overabundant laws (repression) any day of the week.

You might hate me for this, as I call out your privilege rather than condone it but… ‘power’ doesn’t heal, ‘power’ corrupts, demonizes & kills. How the hell should we trust the ‘qualified’ men of power (on Wall Street & in law-enforcement) to protect us when many unsuspecting citizens fall prey to the power-abusing, deranged, sadistic, satanic goons that we hail as ‘heroes’ and ‘protectors’… I don’t call for anarchy.

Maybe then, you’d shift your focus from wholly disarming the average populace off their GUNS (which I do not worship, but I feel a Constitution is a Constitution) to disarming the greedy few off their power and profit. Don’t focus your hatred on those below you, just because you can. Focus your hatred on those above you who would crush you if solely for profit… because THEY can.

    milita (all the armed populice )

    for the security of a free state ( to remain free people) (and is the reasion for the following law )

    , the right of the people (means everyone even ass holes and bad guys )

    to keep and bear arms (any type one can afford to have)

    shall not be infringed” (means no rules no regulations no restrictions no laws to the contrary as there all infringements)

    (now since this is the THE only law about arms be it guns knives ect. that the constitution allows any added laws are unconstituonal and there for are invalid as if never bin passed.

    it self regulates via moreale right (bad guys whom practice bad stuff will wear out there luck sooner or later)

    by every person wheather they agree with defence or not. ( by removing them whom would do the bad things we all are upset about . fast and on the spot.)

  18. Nice try. Other than for law enforcement, military and hunters (on a highly regulated basis) I have never waivered…there should be no gun ownership. Making guns less available is good progress towards that end. I have traveled to over 75 countries so far for both pleasure and business including a half dozen countries in the Middle East and I hope to double that in my lifetime. I have taken law courses and have been to plenty of rural areas. By keeping gun(s) in your home you are not protecting your family or anyone else for that matter. Statistically, your family is at far, far greater risk of being shot by you, a family member, child’s friend or intruder than being “saved” by you. Usually accidental, but sometimes from a sudden moment of rage or drunkenness. The best thing you can do to make yourself and your family safer is to get rid of your guns.

You may be willing to wait for the police, I don’t have that luxury. Someone breaking into my house has done the harm to my family and left by the time the cops show up. I’m not taking that chance. By the way, you can ask any cop and they will tell you, the majority of the time they are there to document the crime, not stop it. Good luck to you, I really hope you never need the police. Three minutes is an eternity to wait knowing someone is breaking in and you have no way to defend you or your family.

          I’ll leave you with this, and no other reply to your future comments:

          in 2014 over 2,300 people were killed during a home invasion because they had no way to protect themselves. In almost all of those incidences, the police arrived on the scene after the victims were already deceased. You could say the outlaws that had guns were the ones who were the problem, correct? We should just take away the guns then!
          Wrong. If you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns.

          You also said that the police should be the only ones to have guns to protect us. Here is where your uninformed liberal notion towards protection is at it’s greatest fault:
          in 2014, over 3,000 people were murdered due to police brutality. in 2015, 4,300 people! (That is 1/3rd of the total reported gun related deaths) and in just one month of 2016, there are 400 reported police related deaths as of today.

        What have you failed to acknowledge, sir? No disrespect, Larry, even though you have been a poster child for disrespect up to this point? I’m giving you an opportunity to change my mind.

        Acknowledge or refute
        Criminals will still obtain guns in the event of a ban. Like drugs, alcohol during prohibition, prostitutes.

        Many people have avoided burglary, and or murder by wielding or discharging a firearm.

        There are civilians who own guns who use them responsibly and are trained to use them effectively.

        There are many small towns with a police force consisting of 5 or less officers, that would be more vulnerable to terrorist attacks or criminal insurgency if civilians are unarmed.

        Anybody who has the capacity to kill another innocent human being has the capacity to break laws on gun restrictions.

        Guns are fairly easy to manufacture.

        This only scratches the surface to things you fail to consider now I will go on to refute some of your points.

        You have claimed that mass shootings are done by highly trained tactical forces and a civilian with a gun would be unable to stop that. This is completely false. There are highly skilled marksmen who are civilians.

        That people kill people with guns. True. They also kill them with knives, their bare hands, cars, fires, household items, etc.

        There have been a lot of shootings over the years, and a lot more recently…and seemingly a lot more so since it has been the spotlight of the media attention since the last 2nd amendment Supreme Court hearing.
        I can assure you that it is a result of a highly increased population, and an increasingly diverse level of perspective. It is confusing why a grown person would shoot and kill innocent children. Your moral empathy has you reaching for a solution. There is no perfect world where these things do not happen, and I am sorry for that. But the sooner you come to terms with that, the sooner you will be able to understand the world enough to do something meaningful against it.

        Give a solution, instead of supporting affliction.

        I’m not opposed to laser ID ammunition for now…so actual data can be gathered on the source of weapons used in violent murders could be obtained and used in future decisions. That’s about as far as I can bring myself to sympathize with your ideas.

        A murder happens, ammunition is identified. The buyer is identified, the murder is solved. If the buyer isn’t the killer, that data is recorded if he is it is also recorded. I suspect the results will show these violent crimes to happen more with stolen or uncontrolled ammunition.

And there is NO ONE, that’s gonna take away my guns, to where I can’t protect myself, and my family. Stronger gun laws…BULL CRAP.. the cities with the most gun laws are where most the crime and killing occur.

      At what point is there an error?

      My life is too important to trust that someone else is going to come to my rescue.
      How many times have others set back and videod a person being beaten badly, or even killed, without any one even attempting to save them.
      The attacker is 6′ 5″ and 325 lbs.
      the victim, 5′ 5″ 120lbs.
      How would this scenario work out?
      The headlines would read, DAVID LOSES TO GOLIATH!
      POLICE SUSPECT A ROBBERY!! An awful turn of events.
      But if David pulled his .40 SW, and shot Goliath, then they would say, UNARMED MAN SHOT DEAD IN THE STREET!! It wouldn’t matter that Goliath was on drugs, and had killed several people in the past, and was wanted for questioning in a Liquor store robbery.
      But one fact remains, DAVID IS ALIVE.

  32. Exactly…great point. We should make both guns and cigarettes illegal. Think about how many lives that would save and how much less money would be poured down the drain in medical services!

        How many people are killed every day, believing that they shouldn’t fight back.
        They are told by the Libs that any self defense is wrong, and the police are the only right way to deal with criminals.
        They are told to run to their bedrooms and lock the door, then wait for the police.
        Then when the police get there, they find the medicine cabinet empty and the occupants dead.

    • Larry… You seem a bit naive to think that legislation is the answer to everything. Historically, laws have been made and laws have been broken. Culture has always been the governing factor in civilized society. Those who kill other people aren’t governed by laws, since murder itself is already illegal. Those who don’t kill people, don’t kill people because they don’t have a desire to, they have been raised with a healthy temperament, or they have a sense of moral conviction….not because some law is telling them not to.

  33. If the police were able to protect everyone, then no one would every get robbed, raped, murdered or beaten.
    No one ever hears about the good guy that saved his family at home, or saved some one else from a horrible crime because it doesn’t sell papers like a mass shooting or a serial killer’s rampage.

  37. Excuse me, I believe all the anti gunners are the biggest assholes on this planet…. Let’s take a logical example. Drugs are banned and illegal, does this stop the drug epidemic? No! It does not. How long have drugs been illegal? Decades.

    Now let’s make all guns illegal, what will happen? Will the criminals also give up their guns? Don’t be a dick, guns like drugs will always find their way to the criminals, this is how things work. Bad guys will never obey the law… Taking guns away from law abiding citizens is just going to make the lives of bad guys easier… There will never be such a thing as ‘gun control’ because where there’s a need, there will be a supplier. Drug addict needs drugs, they go to their supplier. Bad guy needs guns, he goes to his supplier. Good guy needs protection, he has to pray the bad guy don’t shoot him before the police arrive. I refuse to be a coward and am willing to fight the good fight, I just want the same rights to bear arms as the criminals has… Take away my right, then you just giving the criminal more rights them me. Fuck you to all those people hiding behind their body guards, and their private security companies and their gated communities. My gun evens the field, because I don’t have a body guard, private security or live in a gated estate.

    Reply

    • I love how Anti-gun people call everybody Rambo. In my honest opinion, people who are anti-gun are experiencing a delusion of permanent security, where these terrible wars could not possibly reach home, or that our military and police force is capable of containing any chaos from happening. This is a result of a sheltered lifestyle and a lack of exposure to the reality that is the human condition. History can and will repeat itself. Because you are a coward who hides behind a police officer or military, and you have justified your logic as being the only appropriate form of logic, you condescend those who have a different opinion, who might have stood in other countries and witnessed the chaos unfolding.

      I’ve got news for you. These middle eastern countries that are so far away, the people who live there, may look different, they may speak different languages and you may see the pictures of the war zones and see two completely different places when comparing the USA to Syria or Afghanistan, or Iraq. But I can assure you the same destruction is possible in the United States or anywhere in the world. It is only a matter of time. If you don’t want a gun…that is fine. But to condescend and judge people who do by calling them “Rambo”, proves your level of intellect to be closed minded, presumptuous and delusional. It’s only been a few generations since our last world war. There is a good chance the war we are experiencing now will escalate into another. You find it reasonable to disarm the citizens of the USA because of the actions of a few idiots, lunatics and emotionally damaged people. I find that idea to be naive, irresponsible, and cowardly. Keep calling people Rambo. Well keep calling you, Judas.

      Cue the misdirectional arguments about religion since I mentioned the name Judas, or about grammar since I rush typed this, or the false statistics about mass shootings and how guns being readily available to citizens is to blame. Or finger pointing and the shouting of the word insurrectionist ideologist!! Accusing me of being a fear mongering idiot because I’d prefer to have my freedom intact.

      Murder is illegal. That’s not stopping anything. All gun restrictions will do is put non-murderers in jail for preferring a sense of security. We’re headed toward a new world order where the cowards of today would like to hide behind the system, and make the system do their bidding. This country was founded by people who pity these cowards, protected by people who put them to shame, and upheld by people with guns, jets, bombs, and courage and a will to live. The very system you hide behind exists because a few people stood up with their guns and said enough is enough. I’m not religious, I won’t call you Judas, I will call you, “cancer”. Your logic is dysfunctional. Larry cancer!

  39. I thank god every day for my right to carry concealed. I’ve had 2 instances where I had to unfortunately pull my hand gun out and stop the threat . One was three guys trying to break into my garage and I ment them with my 40 s&w and it took police 8 mins to arrive . Now say I didn’t have any guns , the metal bats and knives they had more than likely would have found there mark on my head and body ! I own a lot of guns and everyone in my family owns a lot of guns and NEVER has one harmed another individual!!!! So should we ban alcohol? Drunk drivers kill ALOT more people , what about drugs ? Shouldn’t we concentrate about getting cocaine , heroine off our streets ? A criminal that wants to hurt someone will do it with any means possible! I can tell you one thing you never see these shooting at a place where people have guns , it’s always in gun free zones . If you where allowed to carry these criminals would not just be standing there shooting at sitting ducks if someone had a gun and returned fire it would of saved some lives . Even the talk of taking guns from Americans is a slap right in the face to every man and women that has served and is serving to protect our freedom and rights !

It will take years…even decades…so the sooner we get started the better! We can do this. We just need to be adults and choose to.

        • Larry, the issue at hand is and always will be, guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Laws are reactive not proactive. For example in San Bernardino with Cali one of the most strict in the nation for gun laws, not one of those laws or regulations would have prevented it from happening. Had someone been legally able to carry there the death toll and injury count might have been different. Remember Larry, its that nice man or women behind you in the checkout lane with their family who is going to stop a bad person long before the cops get there. Why would you want to wait for a good guy with a gun to arrive after the body’s hit the floor, instead of letting them surround you daily?

          Reply

          • What you fail to recognize is the laws in San Bernadino are child’s play. Of course they were ineffective…the NRA has blocked the movement towards laws that would be effective. Thanks for pointing out the evidence that we need much stronger gun laws and many more of them.

            People kill people with guns…pretty much only with guns. Take the guns away and these killings will stop. It’s just so ridiculously easy for any of us to buy, borrow and steal guns…they’re everywhere. We need them to be nowhere. It’s so easy to use guns to kill people. Why? Because that’s precisely what they are designed to do. So if we don’t want mass killings why do we sell them at the neighborhood gun store? “Give me a soda, pack of gum and give me that glock too”. It’s just insane and completely unnecessary. There are no other practical methods to kill people, particularly in large numbers, that are available to the general public.

            We can stop his madness. Let’s just do it.

          • It’s easy to answer your question for Larry… he’s afraid. He’s afraid of people with guns, unless they wear a uniform. So, apparently, he’s actually afraid of people who don’t wear uniforms, since there are many uniformed people with guns walking around every day. Which, incidentally, supports the evidence of liberal mental instability.

          • Larry, I have only one question to your suggestion of stronger and more laws:

            What law can you pass that will prevent criminals from getting guns, or from committing crimes without guns?

            Just name one law, Larry. Just one.

        • According to FBI and Census Bureau staticstics available on their websites:
          1. The black homicide rate is more than six times the non-black homicide rate.
          2. The black homicide rate without guns is three times the non-black homicide rate with guns.
          3. We could save 5000+ lives every year if we could somehow get the black homicide rate down to the non black homicide rate.
          The main cause is the massive support for illegitimacy that has created a feral third world underclass of men raised on the street who have not had the experience of earning self respect and cannot tolerate disrespect in social arguments or in gang relationships.

          About 500,000 Americans die every year from nicotine addiction related diseases. This is about 50 times the number of firearm homicides. Why don’t we make cigarettes illegal?

    • Larry, you’re spot on. Gun Control has worked well in the EU and Australia. Impossible to reason with people on websites like these. Also, when has an armed vigilante ever stopped a mass shooting? Never. You would have to be well trained in special ops to even have a chance. Most people run for their lives, even if they are packing. An armed civilian would just make things worse. It’s pretty damn simple: get rid of guns, get rid of gun violence. People on websites like these are untenable, short-sighted and childish.

      • The sheeple in the E.U and Australia have experienced increases in home invasions, robberies, assaults, and homicides because they are more defenseless. The only two parts of the Constitution that protect democracy are the first two amendments. I had the ability to thwart an assault because I was armed. One person with a small easily concealed five shot 38 with laser grips could have put the red dot on the jehodists heads and blow their brains out. The difference between ignorance and stupidity is choice. You continue to choose being stupid because you emotionally choose to remain ignorant.

He was great at implementing ideas that were in the best interest of the people at that time. If he were alive today and witnessed what modern guns are capable of and how they are being used to slaughter people he would most certainly support eliminating them. He would quickly identify the NRA as the establishment against the people and the enemy.

      • Kyew, AMEN!!! I never fired a gun, but even I know that a person has the God-given right to defend themselves. Besides it is inherently said, in the Declaration of Independence, LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. One must be able to defend themselves from being killed or severely hurt. My parents served in the Air Force, and they own guns. Gun Control will only harm the law-abiding citizen. The only thing, a dictator needs to have complete control over its people is take away the people’s claws (i.e. Guns). Then that dictator now has open season to nick-pick rights to take away. We are the only country that its Constitution states that its people can own a gun. For crying out loud, it was the local farmers and townspeople who grabbed their muskets and went out to Lexington green in 1775. Not the Army regulars, besides the Continental Army after the fact, was mainly militia. It wasn’t until 1777-78, that the Continental Army, started to act and dress like a real professional army. All these gun crimes that happen, usually happen in gun free cities. I’m a History major and I love learning about the American Revolution. Yet, these people still advocate for more gun control, the San Bernardino shooting was in a gun free zone, the culprits used illegal weapons. To get rid of guns, you might as well, ban cars, knives, forks, pencils and everything known to be created, because somehow and someway, these objects can be a weapon to hurt or kill people. Usually these gun grabbers, have a dismal knowledge of history. Remember before guns, there was a time when swords, bow and arrows were considered the tools to kill somebody for more than millennia. Cain killed Abel with a rock, so again its not a gun problem, its a heart or morality problem.

The facts overwhelmingly support gun control as the primary means of curbing gun violence, gun deaths and mass shootings. It is not incumbent upon me to back up everything I say with fact checking when the statistics in support of gun control are EVERYWHERE. Get a clue.

All the executive orders about gun control will be taken away. You say gun control,gun control. What would you do if they started infringing on freedom of speech too? Once you start on one they will go after another one of our freedom’s. It’s called a domino effect. As a wiseman said the “The tree of liberty has to be refreshed from time to time” Thomas Jefferson. But don’t worry Trump will bring this country back(Strong,respected,no more weakness)

He may win the Republican nomination but that’s not saying much given he crowd of bible thumping idiots on that stage. It does say a lot about how bigoted our nation still is…or perhaps just the republicans. One thing is for sure…if Trump is on the Republican ticket for Presiden, our country will witness the largest voter turnout in history because so many people in both parties despise him and his positions so visciously that they will run to the polls to simply vote against him.

          • “The facts overwhelmingly support gun control as the primary means of curbing gun violence, gun deaths and mass shootings.”

            No. They do not. The facts that you acknowledge may support gun control as the primary means of curbing gun violence. What about all of the facts you still fail to acknowledge, even after dozens of intelligent people have presented a distinct problem with the idea of gun control and regulations?
            Your problem; is that you oversimplify the outcome of your ideal solution in theory, and over-complicate anyone else’s ideas. If I were you, I’d get your narcissism looked at, it may be hindering you in other areas of your life as well.
            You have dozens of comments on this article, Larry. Some of your comments contradict others. For example, you’ve represented yourself as preferring “absolutely no guns” as the solution, and when refuted you’ve back-pedaled and sighted the idea of just making them less available. When confronted with a serious problem to your idea, you’ve either completely ignored the issue, attacked another person’s style of writing, or character, or led yourself into the most presumptuous passage of what you think would happen. “If Thomas Jefferson knew this….he would be against it too” calling yourself the modern day Thomas Jefferson.
            You don’t know Thomas Jefferson, or anything about him other than what went down in history. You lack the basic reasoning skills and common human decency to get a thousand people to follow you as you lead, and you damn sure don’t have any regard for the possible consequences of your ideas. Instead you keep that chip on your shoulder, telling you that you are right and that you have considered everything, when it is obvious to everybody watching that you ignore all opposing logic without any consideration.
            You are a person driving down the road drunk telling everybody that you are not drunk, yet all we do is see you swerving on and off the road. I think you should concede and maybe go take a trip abroad to get a grip on the realities you surely haven’t faced in your lifetime.
            Head over to the middle east for a bit. Maybe take a course in manufacturing so you could understand how impossible it would be to stop guns from being manufactured. Take a course in criminal law, or visit a prison so you can understand how well criminals follow rules. Go to a rural area where each house is 5 miles apart, and call the cops. Take note of how long it takes for them to arrive. Go to my house, in my un-gated community and try to cause harm to my family or steal my property, and watch how quickly you fail.
