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:


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. The only way the laws could have been stronger would be to imprison everyone so they couldn’t break the law.

    Try again.


  2. France’s gun control laws are highly effective as the statistics clearly show…per capita gun caused deaths are a fraction what they are in the US. Had the laws been even stronger the terrorists would have less opportunity to do what they did. There is not a single reason for AK-47s and similar tools for murder to be a part of our society. We need to get ahead of the curve and eliminate all production, import, sale, transfer and possession of them.


  3. I believe in the right to arm bears. A bear has an IQ higher than an NRA member or PePe LePew alias Wayne LaPierre


  4. Just pointing out how ridiculous your comments are. I don’t think it is worth my time to respond to you in the future and I won’t. Delete!


    • Oh, I see…

      Let me get this straight. My arguments are ridiculous. It should be easy for you to refute them. However, you choose to cut communication.

      I’m still trying to wrap my head around this. So you’re saying that, in effect, you have a gun pointed at me, then you turn around and run like a screaming child when I lunge at you.

      Son, I think your gun isn’t loaded. lol But have fun imagining that you accomplished something here. I’m always happy to treat a troll the way they deserve to be treated.


    • Liam Neeson is not listed he is anti gun and every movie he is in now has him with a gun. Oh I don’t go to the movies much anyway they charge too much to be certified unarmed.


  5. Over the next 20 years, but the sooner the better, make it extremely difficult for people like those shooters to get hold of a gun. Strict gun laws, elimination of gun stores, collection and destruction of existing guns.


    • “make it extremely difficult for people like those shooters to get hold of a gun. Strict gun laws, elimination of gun stores, collection and destruction of existing guns.”

      How has that worked out with our contiguous neighbor Mexico? The strict gun ban model has never worked out for any country in the world where there is a fair amount of criminal activity in fact, the UK & Australia have seen an increasing trend & spike in violence & crime since their ban.

      The Pew Research Institute did a poll less than a year ago with Australians about the gun ban & the result was nearly 60% of the citizens want the gun ban abolished, why do you think that is?

      You do realize what you are asking for is to ONLY punish law abiding citizens, right?


      • Funny, most of those who ended up slaughtering their peers and colleagues at campus mass shootings were “law-abiding” untill they used their guns for murder. Gun licences don’t come with halos anymore than drivers licences do. What a moronic way to depict gun owners — many of whom favor tough gun laws. If you think every gun owner is “law-abiding” you obviously have no clue what a straw purchase is. Every one HAS to be made by a “law-abiding” citizen who uses his licence to illegally help others. If you can predict when the next “law-abiding” gun owner will break the law and go on a killing spree or make an illegal purchase, please let the FBI and the ATF know. They sure could use your help, Mr. Law Abiding. But I suspect you will do nothing, while the body count grows. Typical.


        • And every drunk driver was a sober driver before being caught. Every criminal was once law-abiding until they weren’t. What’s your point? Is it that we have to punish the people who are currently law-abiding for the crimes of those who aren’t? Or would you rather just imprison anyone who might kill someone else before they get the chance to do it? Hey, maybe we could take DNA samples and determine who has the best chance of being a criminal before they ever break the law!

          What you idiots never admit is that no law ever made has ever stopped a crime from being committed. What has? Guns. Every single year anywhere from 500,000 to 2.5 million defensive gun uses occur in the US alone. The vast majority of these are not even reported as crimes because (wait for it)… no one was hurt! There was no crime, so no crime report.

          But you morons think you have the oldest of humanity’s problems solved – the will to hurt or kill other people – and all the while you’re doing nothing but making it easier for the people who will kill or hurt other people to do exactly that by making it harder for actual law-abiding citizens to defend themselves. Every law you make does nothing to curb criminal behavior. Every gun you ban does nothing to keep criminals from getting guns. Look at Paris and the slaughter that happened there. And it happened in a country that is a gun-free zone! Guns are banned in France in case you didn’t know that. But that didn’t keep any of those 160 people from getting killed, did it? How about the 300 injured? Nope, they’re still injured, even though guns were banned.

          You guys need to put the wine glasses down, stub out the joints, and start using your heads for something more than hat racks. Even the smallest and stupidest of children understand that greater power trumps weaker power…





  6. Great win today for humanity against the owners of Badger Guns who have blood on their hands. Just the beginning.


    • Let’s not get too teary-eyed, there Larry. It wasn’t a win for humanity; it was a win for the legal system. And, might I add, there was no prevention of any crime in this case. What it proves is that the law does not keep bad people from doing bad things, it only punishes those who choose to break the law.

      But, hey. If you want to call it a win for humanity, I’m with you. It’s blatant evidence that passing laws does nothing to prevent crime. That’s a fact that needs to be known across the planet.


      • Ok, no more laws across the world! Is this the platform of the NRA? Brilliant.


        • Typical liberal response – when anyone makes a logical statement that refutes one of their points, the next step is exaggerated hyperbole, taking the example to the extreme. What you fail to realize is that you prove what anyone with common sense already knows; that extremes are untenable in any scenario.

          In your case, of course you’d take it that extreme, because you have no concept of moderation, and you wish to paint my comment in the worst possible light – that of being lawless. You completely ignore the fact that laws (and the enforcement of them) provide consequences for those who break them… IF they’re caught.

          Bu then, you’d also have to wrap your head around the fact that letting murderers out of prison after three years is part of the problem with our legal system. Meh… liberals. You can’t live with them, and it’s illegal to shoot them.

          At least for now anyway.


  7. Anecdotal evidence… perfect. Remind me to call every scientific board in the country to inform them that you have suddenly solved the problem of crime, all by yourself.

    I’m sure they’ll be thrilled to hear it. They might even invite you to a press conference!


  8. Just the unfortunate reality of what people do when they have a gun. Since there’s no good reason for it we’ll just remove them from our society. Did you see that the last gun store in San Francisco is closing? Local ordinances ran them out of town. Just a taste of the future little man.


    • That’s not reality; that’s your fantasy. No one I know has ever done anything like that, and all my family, and most of my friends have firearms. I wonder if you might be able to explain that…

      San Francisco? lol If you want to compare the rest of that country to that city-sized slum, be my guest. I reckon we’ll see what happens in the future, but regardless, I won’t be disarmed.

      And you… since you would offer up your family to save your own skin, your opinion really has no merit.


      • Between your family and friends (who must live in Texas or West Virginia I’m guessing since I don’t know a single person with a gun in California) you know maybe 200 people. Way too small a sample size and you might be surprised when next week one of them…to your utter dismay…shoots up a movie theater.


        • Not too small of a sample size to refute this:

          “Just the unfortunate reality of what people do when they have a gun.”

          Cops? Military? Security? Governmental agencies? Why do we not read reams of news articles exposing the mass shootings these people commit?

          Because you’re engaging in hyperbole; the last resort of someone without an argument.


        • Margaret Kaufman

          I agree Larry, I lived in California and the only folks I knew with guns were hunters and people moving in from Texas. Not necessary in California nor Hawaii where I currently live. Funny how protective gun owners are, wonder what they have that the rest of us don’t. I live in paradise, so if they have more than that i would like to know what it is.


    • Poor Larry, all bluster & no actual studies generated here in the U.S. that shows Americans would be safer with a gun ban & do you know why? A gun ban ONLY applies to & subsequently punishes the lawful gun owners. The criminals would revel in the idea of a gun ban because they would have the monopoly.

      Let’s look at the gun ban success story with our contiguous neighbor Mexico. Three times the gun murder rate as the U.S. & the criminals run the country but gee whiz, how did they get the guns? I guess drying up the supply sure didn’t work.

      Aside from the usual liberal screaming & whining, there is NO data or studies conducted here in the U.S. that supports your position – zero, nada, zilch. Petulant little feet stamping isn’t an argument, it is the normal liberal distraction.

      However, the studies conducted by our government’s own gold standard – the FBI Uniform Crime Report, clearly isolates the problem areas, almost exclusively “gun free” or severely restricted gun ownership areas AND the safest areas in America – the areas with the least gun restrictions.

      Sorry Larry but more guns in the hands of lawful citizens is proven to reduce crime because the playing gets leveled.

      Lastly, did you know that just the mere presentation of a firearm stops over 1 million crimes per year? Also, over 97% of the gun murders in America are perpetrated by criminals, usually with an illegal weapon & NOT lawful gun owners?

      So tell me, what is your policy prescription that could have prevented Sandy Hook or the Oregon shooting?


  9. But your questions were pointless and idiotic. But even so the answer is yes…I very well my shoot someone if I had a loaded gun. No chance of that if I were not allowed to have one. Many of the people who shot another never did a violent thing in their lives and for whatever reason went off the deep end in a moment of depression or rage. I’m better off without a gun and I’m way better off with no one else having a gun.


    • If my questions are so idiotic, it should be a piece of cake to prove that they’re also pointless. Or don’t you believe the burden of proof lies with the claimant?

      And did you really just type that? That you would shoot someone if you had a gun? Oy vey… let’s review some of your more interesting statements.

      You say you’d be okay with letting your family die; your wife to be raped, your children killed, all because you’re afraid of guns.

      You say you’re even more willing to allow a greater number of deaths in society to “save” the few that are killed with firearms.

      And now you’re saying you’d intentionally go out and kill someone if you were handed a gun?

      I think that’s just about all the evidence anyone would need to realize that you are not in your right mind.

      End of discussion.


    • You said “I’m better off without a gun and I’m way better off with no one else having a gun.” I could not agree more but we don’t live in an imaginary world. If you want to be disarmed, more power to you & I wouldn’t ask you to do something you don’t want to do but maybe you should do the same.

      I’ll ask again – what is your policy prescription that could have prevented Sandy Hook or the Oregon shooting? Invective remarks & vituperation isn’t an answer, so try to think it through.



    These polls demonstrate the overwhelming positive sentiment among our citizens for stronger gun control laws yet our lawmakers fail to act. This is simple corruption…legislators being bought with NRA money. This divide needs to end.


    • Um, those polls show what everyone already knows… that liberal Democrats are opposed to anything with the word “gun” in it except “gun control”.

      What your polls also show is that those same liberals are unwilling to discuss the more prevalent problem of crime in general. They’d rather push their political agenda for control of the masses by making an all-out effort to confiscate all the guns.

      Something they don’t show – the rise in support for gun rights. All of those polls would have shown a greater margin in favor of gun control just ten years ago.

      Here’s another point: your polls are an average of polls. I noticed the majority of the polls were from sources like ABC, NBC, CBS, Washington Post, New York Times, etc. Again proving that liberals cannot provide honest sources for there information. But even considering this telling fact, they still depict a rise in favor of gun rights.

      Yeah, guy. Thanks for the link. It does absolutely nothing to support your position of gun confiscation. It actually goes against it.

      You’re not very good at this debate thing, are you?


      • Keep your head in the sand…nobody can see you.


        • My head is in the sand looking for your evidence for your claims. An article from a blog (of all things) hardly constitutes evidence of anything other than that someone has waaaaay too much time on their hands.

          Bring some evidence, please. Better yet, bring a logical argument against gun ownership. I would love to see an example of what you consider “logical”.


        • Okay, Larry. I’ll make this simple for you. Just answer two questions:

          1. If I put a gun in your hand right now, will you go and shoot someone with it?

          2. If you take the gun from a criminal’s hand, will this prevent him from committing a crime?

          Easy questions, yes? Please limit your responses to “yes” or “no”. there’s really no explanation needed considering the simplicity of these scenarios.


          • Stupid question with stupid restrictions. Let me help you with that.

            1. If I put a gun in the hand of 1,000 people right now, will any of them shoot someone with it? Yes

            2. If you take the guns from 1,000 criminal’s hands, will fewer innocent people be killed? Yes

          • Of course people are going to shoot other people; it’s called “self-defense”, and it’s justified. And of course you’ll stop a miniscule amount of gun crimes by taking away guns from 1,000 people, but how many people will die because they couldn’t defend themselves? A lot more than are “saved”.

            The entire point of my questions (which went completely over that thing on your shoulders you use for a hat rack) is that having a gun does not mean you are a criminal, and not having a gun will not prevent you from being a criminal.

            So answer my questions, now that I’ve answered yours. Would YOU go and shoot someone if I gave you a gun right now?

            If you took away the guns from 1,000 CRIMINALS, would they still commit crimes?

            Don’t change the questions to fit your political yapping points. Just answer them as they are. There’s a reason things are worded the way they are; it completely changes the question when you change the words. Your questions were entirely different from mine.

            Ahhh… but that was your goal, wasn’t it? because those particular questions make too much sense, and they don’t support your position of anti-freedom.

            It’s a lot clearer now.

  11. Well well I just hope any of you gun hating lost souls never need one when someone comes in your house looking to rob you or harm your family. They come to my house I’ll send them your way and tell them your unarmed. Lol. Remember guns don’t kill people, people kill people. Besides you liberals always try calling us NRA members crazies. I been hunting along with my 3 brothers and dad since I was 13, and NONE of the 5 of us has ever gone on a rampage. On and not one of the many arms I own (my right) has ever loaded its self, and went out and shot anyone. I find that most of the crazy anti gun people have never own any kind of a firearm, so there for you don’t have the right to speak out against something you know nothing about except what your liberal news media wants to know. Your all puppets on a string of anti Americans.


  12. And notice how these guys respond to guests expressing a normal contrary opinion: with rudeness and insults. Its says everything about the people that support the NRA. They are extremists of the most despicable, ignorant, and dangerous type.


    • You mean rude like this?

      “This is disgusting exercise in paranoid, McCarthyistic blacklisting. Sadly typical of those buy into conspiracy theories about the boogie man in Washington coming to take their guns away. The ignorance is just pathetic. The gun lobby has blood on their hands, more each day, no doubt about it. The public will wake up to this and vote out their puppets, eventually. Meanwhile, let’s hope the NRA’s criminal negligence doesn’t contribute to the murder of another loved one.”

      Apparently, the people here addressing guests aren’t the only ones who have a problem being civil.

      What’s your excuse? Oh, wait… it’s that your a liberal, isn’t it?



      • oh, i knew that you would that one out the hat. you mean liberal, like Jefferson and Washington and Franklin. Man you are out of it.


        • Let me guess… you haven’t read much of history, have you? Don’t you know it was the Democrats that were all for slavery? But the thing is, Democrats back then were what Republicans are today. The names switched places – that’s the only way I can say it simply enough for you to understand. So by claiming the founding fathers were liberals, you confirm that they held the same ideals that conservatives today hold.

          And I bet you thought you had an actual point there, didn’t you?

          Look it up. Read some history. Learn a little something, then come back. I’ll continue to thrash your arguments into mush. That is, if you can come up with any arguments that amount to more than ad hominem attack and hyperbole.


      • oh, and thank you for repeating my initial comment. it deserves repeating. and if anyone has any doubts about the intent of this list…look at the URL: “the-boycott-list/nras-list-of-antis/”, Yes it as blacklist of those who disagree with NRAs positions. Discussion over.


        • This discussion never started, son. People say, “Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight.” You’ve brought nothing to a gun fight.


          • right padre, the point obviously went right over your head. sorry bout that

          • The point couldn’t have gone over my head, because it’s on top of your head. It seems to be the only point you’ve made here yet.

  13. And i bet you thought we would all agree with you…surprise!


    • Obviously there are morons in the world who can’t see sense if it bit their nose off. Are you one of those?

      And you still haven’t brought anything resembling a position. I can smell your fear from here…


      • i have no fear of you, only nausea. but interesting you would frame it in a confrontational construct…get those guns!!


      • you missed the argument the first, second, and third times. i’m sorry you are so daft. no interest communicating with those whose positions are fixed. it’s boring and pointless. in your case, i do fear, sadly tragic for our children.


  14. And i bet you thought we would all agree with you…surprise?


  15. Oh, and all these names and organizations here? yes, this is pathetic attempt to shame and ostracize these individuals for expressing their point of view on a serious issue; it is an attempt to quash their freedom, destroy their reputations and cause economic damage. These tactics are an affront to our our democracy and have been proven over and over to be doomed to failure.

    The people that support the NRA/gun lobby protect a multi-billion dollar arms industry that produces weapons that have no other than to kill. They act like they are hunters and citizens that just want to protect their families. And if they were, this would not be an argument.

    The truth is, these are the benefactors of the international arms trade. It’s very serious people. Don’t let their rhetoric confuse you. These individuals that post these types of website are complicit with all merchants of death.


  16. what does this organization really want? money! what a surprise. these guys are the worst of the worst. let’s put them out of business!


  17. Actually no, but that is the point. The majority of the public support stronger gun control laws but the minority, through the NRA well financed lobby, have disproportionate influence over our lawmakers. The number of people who support the insane position of the NRA is irrationally high and these ignorant people need to be educated on the facts so they can join the rational majority to force our lawmakers to do what’s best for the country and do away with all these guns. Humanity will prevail.

    And the last time I checked my name is Larry


  18. Sorry junior…you can’t just say “stop” and the world will revolve around you. You have no absolute rights…the community you live in decides what is tolerable and what is not. This community will take eventually stop this insanity and take these horrible weapons out of the hands of the masses. That will be done through legislation. These murders, which are growing in frequency, undermine the position of the NRA. Just take your meds and let it happen.


    • “… the community you live in decides what is tolerable and what is not.”

      I’m glad you pointed that out, Larry. Perhaps now you’ll be willing to further your education and look up some polls that clearly show the American public does not favor gun control.

      I’d start with Gallup, then try the CNN poll.

      Have fun with that.


  19. Finally…someone sensible on this thing!


  20. This is disgusting exercise in paranoid, McCarthyistic blacklisting. Sadly typical of those buy into conspiracy theories about the boogie man in Washington coming to take their guns away. The ignorance is just pathetic. The gun lobby has blood on their hands, more each day, no doubt about it. The public will wake up to this and vote out their puppets, eventually. Meanwhile, let’s hope the NRA’s criminal negligence doesn’t contribute to the murder of another loved one.


    • Blacklisting? How does this list keep any of those people from living their lives? It’s obvious you’re a troll with no other purpose than to spew your alarmist drivel. Try being rational for once in your wasted life.


      • guess it’s hard for you to come up with a reasonable argument, so you resort to meaningless insults and name calling….good luck with that


        • Argument against what? Your baseless accusations and trolling? I see no need to even give the appearance of validating that garbage. Come up with an actual argument and I will (as you can see from previous posts of mine) be there to show you exactly where it’s fallacious.

          I await your efforts with bated breath.


          • trolling? baseless accusations? I’m sorry for you. You are either so brained washed by NRA second amendment propaganda, or just plain stupid. Read the newspapers, and I mean a selection. Try getting some education on this. And at the very least look up the statistics. You might learn something…perhaps how sickening you are.

          • Thanks for confirming that you have no intention of defending your position. If you had intended to defend your position, you would have made your position clear. I mean, other than things like “This is [sic] disgusting exercise in paranoid [sic]…” and “The gun lobby has blood on their hands…” and “The public will wake up to this and vote out their puppets, eventually” and “… let’s hope the NRA’s criminal negligence doesn’t contribute to the murder of another [sic]…” If those are examples of your position, you really need to study the English language a bit more before trying to convince anyone of anything in this language.

            So this is me (again) asking you to make your position clear. Or are you afraid you can’t defend it?

  21. HELLO! Everyone STOP! As long as we have a constitution and a Bill of Rights, we can still call this nation America. If you don’t want to own a firearm, you don’t have to. It is NOT the government’s job to educate you, that responsibility falls upon tax payers. As all legal gun owners are tax payers, they have the RIGHT to expect their government to uphold their best interests and rights as guaranteed. You cannot legislate morality or sanity. You either have those traits instilled in you by age 6, or sadly, you probably never will.

    Each side of the gun issue feels they have better points than the other. The ONLY “point” should be that EVERYONE has a basic right to life and to DEFEND that life. Therein lies the rub. We all have the right to live but how far are we prepared to go in protecting and preserving that life?


  22. So you think that if every drunk guy coming out of the bars at 2:00am is packing a loaded handgun there would be fewer shootings? Get a clue.


    • Please show me where anything I’ve said could be reasonably interpreted as what you just said. When you realize it can’t be interpreted that way, please come back and join the discussion with some modicum of rationality.


  23. Simple…there’s no good reason for them. Your little bit of fun shooting beer bottles off a fence is not worth the deaths of so many people.


    • You’d be right of that were true. However, the reality is that more people are saved by defensive gun uses than are killed by criminal gun uses, gun accidents, and suicides with guns combined. Add to that the fact that anyone carrying a gun is more likely to survive an encounter with a criminal intent on harming them and you have no logical reason to push for gun control. Add to THAT the fact that the vast majority of shooters in mass shootings passed background checks, and you see that the existing gun laws are useless where preventing gun crime is concerned.

      Bottom line? You have no logical argument. Not yet anyway. Please insert another quarter and try again.

      Thanks for playing!


  24. Yes, I’m fine with my family members dying under those circumstances. Their chances of death are far higher if they carry guns. There’s plenty we can and will do about it…establish more gun safety laws. Just a matter of time. The NRA will be responsible for many murders in the meantime but it will eventually get done because rational behavior will eventually win.


    • Sorry, but you’re behind the learning curve, Larry. This study (done by the CVDC, incidentally) quite clearly states that one who is armed is far more likely to survive an altercation with a criminal than one who isn’t.

      Actually, you won’t establish more laws that will accomplish anything. In case you haven’t been listening while reality was speaking, criminals don’t obey laws, rendering the creation of laws moot when attempting to control criminals.

      And the NRA isn’t responsible for anything other than preventing you morons from attaining your unicorn Utopia replete with Jell-O rainbows and Kool-Aid rivers.

      Oh, wait… that was never going to happen anyway, was it?

      How about you come back with some logical argument as to why the wholesale ban of firearms is a rational goal. Or maybe just take a stab at logical; I’m often told I expect too much of people…


  25. Another incoherent rant. This is much more simple than you think. Stricter gun safety laws. As our President said yesterday…we are the only advanced country in the world that does not take action to fix this problem that is so easily fixed.


    • So the demographics of the EU nations match the demographics of the US well enough that the subject of guns is easily interchangeable? Have you lost your mind? As you people are so fond of saying, there are far more guns in the US than any other country on the planet, and you think what works in those other countries will work here automatically? Are you literally breathing from your mouth right now? Do you know why roofs in Florida are flatter than roofs in Maine? Because it doesn’t snow in Florida. But you’re more than happy to say that roofs in Florida need to be steeper.

      Let’s take a look at history… Back in the day, there was very little crime. There were a LOT of guns – anyone could get a gun through the mail. Literally. But then people started trying to counter the few crimes that were committed with firearms by restricting those firearms. What happened then? Crime went up. More gun laws were passed. Crime went up. MORE gun laws were passed, and crime kept rising. You fools ignore the facts in front of you because you think you’ve discovered some new fact that was proven fallacious decades ago.

      But I’ll agree with you on one thing – action does need to be taken. First, we need to get that moron out of the Oval Office. Second, we need to find a way to get help to those people who are mentally unstable. Third, we need to spread the message that no one can reasonably expect to ever be completely safe. Fourth, those people who aren’t armed need to be armed and trained and legally required to carry every single day. Let you people see how laws can take freedom for the greater good.


  26. Ronald McDonald Trump

    hehehehe – the only thing funnier than the NRA itself are the knuckle-dragging, bible-thumping idiots that believe in it… fortunately like the dinosaurs, you too will be extinct and forgotten about soon enough – hopefully in my lifetime so that I might enjoy not only the joke that you are but the forgotten memory that you are about to become.


    • How so? Explain how you think this is a possible reality. In the ’90s, most people believed gun control worked. These days, the stats have flipped almost exactly – most people believe that gun control is useless. The numbers of firearms bought, and of people (mostly women) who applied for a concealed carry permit have soared in the past decade. Crime (and, incidentally, the suicide and accidental death rates) has plummeted while these numbers have increased.

      A strange correlation to these facts is another fact – that the number of trolls who know absolutely nothing about firearms, and their wider implications upon society, has increased exponentially on the internet, especially on websites where firearms and their use are seen as nothing more than a responsibility that everyone should recognize – to protect oneself and their family.

      I tell you what, troll. Leave your manipulable statistics and biased studies where they belong – in the circular file – and bring me one single logical reason why firearms should be banned or heavily regulated.

      If you can do that, you win the internet.


      • Ronald, you are living in your own fantasy. You shop for statistics that prolong your fantasy rather than searching for the truth. Guns don’t protect people…they are primarily a means of aggression against society and there is no good reason for widespread ownership. Just like a wart…just have it removed.


      • Interesting that Plano, TX, with arguably the highest per capita incidence of gun ownership in the US also has (I think) the lowest per capita rate of firearm homicide (o.4 per 100,000) in the nation. Of course the anti-gun propagandists would likely explain that the would-be murderers of Plano simply can’t hit what they’re aiming at……. so nobody hits the ground!


  27. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (actors), Alton Brown (chef), Joe Perry (rock guitarist), Miranda Lambert (country music artist), Johnny Depp (actor), Clint Eastwood (actor), James Earl Jones (actor), Bruce Willis (actor), Ice-T (rapper, actor), Tom Selleck (actor), Eric Clapton (musician), Gary Sinise (actor), Joe Mantegna (actor), Adam Baldwin (actor), Kevin Sorbo (actor), R, Lee Ermey (actor), Dean Cain (actor), Sarah “S.E.” Cupp (TV Host), James Hetfield (musician), Rob Lowe (actor)…

    The list goes on and on… your fantasy has been dissolved.


    • Joe Montegna (who has a show on American Rifleman TV) Clint Eastwood, Bruce Willis, Gary Sinise, R. Lee Ermy are not on the list. I guess you cannot read. Why do you think that rodeo performers and cowboys in general wear Wranglers and not the Communist brand Levi Strauss? Why do patriotic Seniors eschew the AARP and belong to the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC)?


      • If you’ll notice, my comment was in reply to whoever asked for a list of pro-gun celebrities. Sorry to deflate your rant, Bubba.


        • You were so close to the anti list, I screwed up. Sorry, we are on the same team. Feel free to use the rant, it needs to be used a lot. I check the list to make sure I am not boycotting a company or person that has recanted like the Chlorox Corp (Kingston Charcoal).


          • It seems the forum doesn’t stack the replies perfectly either. No harm, no foul. Shoot safe and often!

          • Thanks NRA…for killing 10 more of our kids.

          • Larry, the NRA didn’t kill those kids – people like you killed them. People who want all of us to be defenseless, people who want “gun-free kill zones” to cover the face of the planet, people who refuse tot ake responsibility for their own protection, and then blame those who do protect themselves for the actions of the criminals who are only exercising the advantage that people like you give them.

            Stop your whining and grow up. Arm yourself, get training, acquire the mindset of a defender, and go make a difference. Until you actually DO something about it, you’re nothing but part of the problem.

          • Arm myself? Are you serious? Like more guns is a solution? What a stupid f^%ck you are.

          • Larry your thought process that the NRA is responsible for those kids death is about as reasonable as trying to hold Goodyear, or BF Goodrich responsible for all the drunk driving deaths.
            Until you are able to actually hold a coherent thought and blame the sick person that actually did this instead of a group of people that feel that protecting yourself is a better response then THEY, the ones that want to do this type of thing have won… and they will continue to kill those unprotected kids at will with impunity.
            In conclusion, it is sick people like you that allow this to happen by giving sick people with guns a venue to shoot unarmed people, don’t blame the NRA that want to protect these kids for the environment you and people like you have provided them.

          • I blame you for these murders. You stand in the way and allow them to happen. You are responsible. How does it fee lnto kill innocent people? How would you feel if it were your son, your daughter that you killed?

          • Larry, Larry, Larry… so emotional! You understand that emotion does not lend itself to rational thought, don’t you?

            Typical liberal argument – always blame something/someone other than the very thing/person responsible. The only people killing other people with firearms are those who pulled the trigger. This opens up the question: Was it a justified shooting? After asking that, you then have to wonder how many times a life has been saved because the potential victim had a firearm.

            Funnily enough, someone actually did a study on this and came up with the numbers: 500,000 to 2.5 million defensive gun use incidents occur every year. That’s, potentially, a half a million to five times that in saved lives. Compare that to the average 300,000 criminal gun uses a year in the US.

            By your logic, you’re more than happy to be responsible for all those innocent people dying. Would you feel the same if your children died because they couldn’t fight back against a home invader? Would you be fine with your wife being raped and beaten to death because she didn’t have a gun to fend off the three men that charged her from out of a dark alley one night?

            Think about it. I mean really think about it. Let it get you emotional, because that’s where we all stand right now. We’re not going to let it happen if we can prevent it.

            And you know what? There’s not a thing you can do about it.

  28. Is there a list published of the outfits and celebrities that DO SUPPORT our Second Amendment Rights?


    • Yes, here’s the list:

      Charlton Heston, Chuck Norris and Ted Nugent.

      Wait! Charlton Heston is dead (yea!). Yep…it’s down to just Chuck Norris and Ted Nugent.


      • Typical liberal – cheer over the death(s) of others. When Sandy Hook happened, I bet you nearly creamed your jeans, didn’t you? “Oh, my! Now we have a rallying cry! And at such a cheap price!” Vultures. Ghouls. It’s no wonder you don’t respect civil rights; you don’t even respect tragic death.


      • I blame you for: low sperm count in America, stupid liberals who misrepresent the Constitution of the US, the high unemployment rate, the killing of people for being Christians, the killing of innocent babies (not by a gun, but by those who believe a unborn is not a human), the systematic increase of taking from those who have and giving to those who are under the “entitlement” mentality, the false hope of $15+ an hour minimum wage and keeping people out of poverty, the lowering of America’s IQ and critical thinking skills because we do not want to offend anyone, the trampling of Rights guaranteed under the Constitution (Right to Defend Ourselves, Right to Free Speech, Right to Religion, etc), the ever increasing Rights of what is not in the Constitution over those Rights that are in the Constitution.

        I am not here to debate facts, figures or hear the tired argument, “Site Your Source”. I am just stating what I believe I should be able to blame you and those that agree with you for. Since you feel the need to do the same to those on here.


  29. “I would love to educate you in general but I sense that would take a lifetime…go back to third grade and pick up where you left off.”

    You keep making claims to this effect, but I have yet to see you disprove one single point I’ve made, nor have you succeeded in defending any of your claims that I’ve refuted.

    It appears you’re in over your head. In that case, it’s fully understandable for you to attempt character assassination rather than argue salient points.


  30. Yep…I believe those are realities. Nothing sensational about it.
