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. Please create a separate list of the companies, people, products, etc. that still do support the Second Amendment and/or NRA. I think it would be so much easier to just know where I would rather shop or who I would rather support/watch, then it is of who or what to avoid. Thank you very much.

    Reply

    • I totally agree. Especially since there are only about seven companies left that do.

      • Quite the opposite, many companies who are blatantly anti-gun oftwn suffer and turn either neutral or close down.
        Remember, gun owners are 100 million strong and is the most politically active voting groups in the US. We vote more often and in greater numbers. Including with our wallets.

  2. Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty. We’d still be part of the British Empire if the colonists were forbidden to have arms. The Japanese didn’t invade after Pearl Harbor because they didn’t want to have to fight the armed forces and the citizens at the same time. If you do not pay attention to past history it will repeat itself.

  3. Who could possibly remember all these? Would there be a downloadable phone app? An app that we could just scan any product to see if the company is anti-Constitutional? We could put the hurt on them and in the process we could support the good guys. Win, win.

    • I agree. A phone app with a relatively simple database and GPS tracking/mapping could alert you when you’re within a couple hundred feet of an anti-gun business or corporate property.

  4. All these powerful anti-gunners is why we must join the NRA and vote. And merely voting isn’t enough. We must take an active role and contact ALL our elected officials to let them know that pro-gunners do indeed exist. A mere 7% of gun owners belong to the NRA with millions of free-riders enjoying the rights the NRA has fought for, but too damn cheap to chip in the pay for those rights. As if NRA membership costs a fortune (it doesn’t).

    We need to make our voices heard. I almost never see a vehicle with an NRA decal or bumper sticker, as if everyone is too afraid some snowflake will see their car and be offended. I can’t remember the last time I saw anyone wearing an pro-gun or NRA t-shirt to send a message to the entire world that pro-gunners exist. The NRA seems to be a secret that nobody wants to admit belonging to. I guess that is understandable when some view the NRA as a domestic terrorist organization.

    I for one support the NRA and if I were to die today about $2M would go to the NRA and NRA Civil Rights defense fund, providing a legacy even after I am gone. I suggest that others consider remembering gun rights in their own estate plan.

    We can’t allow America to turn into Australia or the UK, where subjects (not citizens) gave up substantially all their gun rights. No, I don’t consider being able to own a shotgun with permission and extensive background checks that holds a maximum of two shells and has at least a 24″ barrel to be gun rights. The mere ability to own a very limited variety of guns under draconian restrictions is not gun rights! CA & NJ & NY already have given up very much in the way of gun rights, so we don’t even have true gun rights in certain large parts of America. It’s time to stand up and make our voices heard. Vote in every election, display your bumper stickers, phone & e-mail your elected officials and make a big NOISE!

      • Dear Larry and Shandu B,
        ….Trump and his cronies pretend to be Americans, but they are liars; just a bunch of swindlers and double-crossers. They can’t be trusted for anything, except allowing private companies to rob Americans of all their public assets and public property, public nature reserves, all the national coasts, and to privatize, or undermine and destroy, all public services. Trump represents the interests of Neoliberalism, which is economic fascism. The Democrats pretend to be something different, but they are liars. Democrats are in cahoots with the same Neoliberal fascists.
        ….Of course, the Democrats would eliminate the Second Amendment. And, the Republicans would eliminate the First Amendment. Both parties claim to uphold the American Constitution, and at the same time they each attack it. Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act, which ended Habeas Corpus, Due Process, and authorized indefinite detention, smashing the Bill of Rights. George W. Bush authorized the Patriot Act, which authorized unlimited electronic surveillance against Americans, and smashed the Bill of Rights.
        ….Both parties are liars. And both parties are the “lap dogs” of the American class of wealth, and its transnational corporate powers and its central bank, that is out to rob Americas of everything they can. 83% of that “tax cut” went to line the pockets of the class of wealth, at the expense of our entitlements, social programs, and other social services, that’s robbery (!). Rather than go on about these matters, I recommend that you Google, Chris Hedges. “He knows where it’s at.” But, let me end this comment with what is becoming more obvious every day. Both political parties are the dangerous enemies of Americans. They are the two sides of the same diabolical coin. They want to destroy America, and put us all under the boot heel of their police to be dominated by those, insane, class of wealth fascists, and those no good Zionists. Yo’ get yo’ head out of dee bucket, o’ y’uzz be brainwashed!

          • Dear Mark,
            My apology, I thought you were an American. we Americans have got the horse shot out from under us, and many of us have not yet noticed. Despite the Amendments that you mentioned, the private corporate government has undermined them. Yes, we continue having guns, but that is only because, for the moment, the “inverted fascism” (Google, Chris Hedges) allows it. The next national crisis, probably an economic one, will see the private powers overriding our constitutional rights through government and police action taken against organized dissent. I regard myself as an American patriot, Thomas Paine, Common Sense, Henry David Thoreau, Thomas Jefferson – yes, Alexander Hamilton – no. I was an American History teacher. But, Mark, the television media is the only view most Americans have of government. The media does not report enough on the significant shifts taking place in domestic policy and is mostly mute on foreign policy. If you Google “Truthdig” (Also, Information Clearing House, ICH, and the Atlantic are good) you have access to more specific reporting in those regards. Chris Hedges does a good job assessing the national condition. For most Americans, things are not as they seem. Too many Americans are grossly misled. (Also, regarding American policy, Trump is a dangerous, spastic gremlin. He is mentally deficient.) Hedges alludes to democratically organized, local independence (sovereignty), which I agree with, but he does not provide the methodology to that end. However, I have a good response to that, which will be making itself apparent, soon enough. You be well.

        Then we put a temporary restrictions through the background check system until they are reassessed by their doctor after a period of treatment. There it is “sensible gun control”.

  5. I cannot fathom why people would be so afraid of firearms and be totally okay with giving up their inalienable right to owning a firearm – why on Earth should only government officials have the right to bear arms, and not citizens like you or I?

    Ever since I was a youngin’, I was quite fascinated by firearms and the science behind guns… it’s quite sad I have to live and grow up in a city that is plagued with the Authoritarian socialist zeals that have countlessly denied the right to bear arms or make it on par with mental gymnastics!

    It’s truly strange as to why these corporations happen to fund the infringement of the second amendment – what do they gain by doing such a thing? Is it merely to spite people such as us?

    • So, you are very comfortable with the Neoliberal fascists? Of course, all citizens have the right to bear arms and to organize militias for mutual defense against tyranny. And the authoritarian socialists would overturn the Second Amendment. But, the Neoliberal fascists would overturn the first Amendment. Trump attacks the First Amendment with regularity. He would end the separation of powers for his megalomaniac convenience. He has given away our natural, nature reserves and the coasts to the extraction companies that will ruin them.

      Both political parties eliminate our constitutional protections. The Republicans authorized the Patriot Act that overturns our Bill of Rights. The Democrats authorized the National Security Authorization Act that eliminates Habeas Corpus, Due Process, and authorizes the indefinite detention of American Citizens.

      That’s just the tip of the ice burg. The point is that Americans have fought wars against fascism and against authoritarian socialism, and now, today, in our own country we are caught between both enemies that vie for national power. But the situation is even more complex than that.

      Netanyahu the leader of the Israeli Zionists visited with Putin days before Trump visited Putin in Finland. The Zionists would have the United Sates attacks Iran, which would be an insane thing for Americans to do, because Americans would gain nothing form it, but would pay for the intervention and would fight it, while the Israeli Zionists stand by doing nothing and gaining everything for their insane plan of “greater Israel,” domination of the Mideast. It starts by reinstating Americans sanctions against Iran, which has just started at Trump’s behest, which would begin to ruin the Iran Nuclear Deal still in effect with the Europeans.

      To Make it short, Trump is destroying America under the directives of Putin. Trump and his Republican Party are the enemies of Americans. They are traitors.

      I’ve also stopped watching any movies by anti-gun actors and actresses. It especially irks me when they portray their characters as gun-slinging vigilantes and accept millions for portraying this heroic gun slinging image.

      I’ve stopped watching anything by Disney although I’ve been a starwars fan since 2nd grade.

      I don’t know what these anti-gun people are afraid of. I’ve talked to some of them and most have never been confronted with a gun or even seen 1 up close.

      So they fear something that’s practically the Boogie man to them. They’ve heard of it but never seen it. Because in they’re minds, guns are pure evil chunks of hell with they’re own will to kill and gun owners are the familiars who serve them.

      They’re opinion is straight out of a Twilight novel.

  10. Greetings to all of you. ….You are all in the middle of it, here in the United Sates, and you can’t see it. Worse, you think you can support either one side or the other, and expect the rebirth of a more or less democratic representational government.
    ….Just because the Neoliberal fascists have robbed the Americans of their national, natural reserves of pristine wilderness, which the extracting companies destroy with fracking and off shore drilling, does not mean the fascists will defend the Second Amendment after the people notice the government’s division of powers is usurped by dictatorship. The fascists are destroying the American Constitution, and the authoritarian socialists and the Zionist Israelis (who are in both camps simultaneously) would like to disarm us, destroy the American Constitution. Either way, it amounts to the same thing, Totalitarianism and the end of personal freedom.
    ….Okay Shandu B, the Americans must fight for freedom. Late 1700’s – early 1800’s, the American fur trapping mountain men looked upon cooked buffalo tripe, as a delicacy. The custom was that one man would eat the tripe form his end until they met in the middle and then, cut the remaining strand with the knife to finish up. If one man had thought the other was eating too fast he would holler, “Feed fair!” Each political party is devouring what’s left of the United Sates from their respective ends, and between them, they have devoured most American families’ favorable futures, which make those political parties the enemies of Americans.
    ….So, if we are to fight for our freedom, then we must revisit our American Declaration of Independence and consider building a different constitution, one that cannot be usurped by private powers. That prospect opens the whole new subject of real, modern independence, which would require a volume to address. But, don’t fret, soon, that cat will jump out of the bag (!), and we will see what comes if it. …. looking forward to your responses. You be well.

      Unfortunately this is a near impossible task. The narrow Trump victory is the only sign that we still have some illusion or facsimile of choice. Unfortunately both candidates where safe choices for the globalist. I fear the populace won’t wake up until it’s too late.

      Reply

      • Dear Shandu B, ….However that may be, let me reiterate in this opening paragraph, before I continue. What most Americans don’t see is that former public functions are being usurped and encroached upon by private concerns. Much to our peril, with the explosion of the Trump stink bomb, the EPA has been reversed and damaged. The Department of the Interior is being used by the transnational private extracting companies to facilitate the exploitation of the public reserves and the coasts. National Parks are defunded. (And, the people’s Entitlements are being defunded, and so on.)
        …. The penal system is being privatized, and is funded with public money, which creates the business of catching and not releasing. Jeff Sessions, head of the Department of Justice, is invested in private penal institutions. Consequently, Sessions upholds draconian judicial policies against minority groups.
        ….Ongoing privatization robs Americans of public space and the means to social capital (see Footnote, 1), which is required for sanity. There are levels of social capital 1) familial and having friends over for dinner, 2) contact through public discourse over public production and trade, or coming together over shared interests, 3) local organizations for the greater good, public discourse over public civic organization for the greater good; all within the organizational principles of real community. Do you see much of that level of independence these days?
        ….We are being attacked by the government, and those private concerns that provide the government with its directives. Private companies are not social services. Private companies cannot perform for the people in the manner expected of a functioning, representational government. Trump and his cronies are trying to derail the whole governing apparatus, on the behalf of the private concerns that vie for all public assets and services, and to destroy those services that cannot generate profit for the new owners, and that, my friend, is called Neoliberalism (“savage capitalism”), or as I would call it, neo-fascism. However reluctant I am to admit it; “It’s just a shot away.” (Rolling Stones)
        Keep in mind, that the existing ideologies are dysfunctional. To end this savage fiasco will require the concerted efforts of Americans to establish a real democratic organization; that new ideology which is yet to be actualized.
        We are but a stone’s throw away from pragmatic decentralization. But, the landscape of decentralization does not resemble the landscape of neo-fascism. Those distinct ideologies will resemble distinct species competing over the same ecosystem’s resources. Again, it will require a volume to explain that new ideology of community, decentralized economic social organization, decentralized civilization, authentic democracy. The countdown to that eventuality is in progress.
        …. To what degree the transition will be peaceful I cannot predict, but the new America will see the realization of the Jeffersonian vision of a decentralized economy ad infinitum; that modern, rural, authentic democracy will provide us with the sovereign independence we so richly deserve, or we will be the unhappy recipients of the goose step and the neo-gulag. …. You be well.

They started this steam engine going about the turn of the century but 1934 with the Federal Reserve act is when America need to start waking up. That’s when the people in power started letting everyone else have the black vs white fight while they started down the road to victory in the rich vs poor fight.

          Big picture. Globalist need 3 things to be rich.
          1. Material wealth.
          2. A populace that is dependent on those materials in a system that does not allow them to live independent of need.
          3. Security. A control on the number and offensive/Defensive capability of said populace.
          3a. Even better a populace that believes the rich in charge are the source of all security.

          We’re only partially dependant on the system in reality. The rest is actually forced on us by rule of law.

          If we the people jump directly to bloodshed to drain the swamp, a lot of people and sheeple will get hurt in the process.

          If the war is lost then history will remember the resistance as crazy rebels put down by a just government.

          If the war is won, win it will be hard to stave off corruption because those who led the charge and survived will want more a bigger cut than those who stood by.

  12. The Taking of the Second Amendment
    I am saddened as an American, and as a Viet Nam Veteran, that so many want to take all guns away from all American Law Abiding Citizens.
    Gun grabbers, if you think taking guns away from law abiding people is going to work, let’s look at how well gun laws are working in Chicago, New York, L.A., or Detroit, to name a few. The criminals don’t care about the laws, cause if they did, we wouldn’t have the murders, gun shootings, and the gun violence that we are living with today in America.
    When the FBI knew about the shooter in Florida, they did what? NOTHING! Oh, and where were the brave deputies at? Hiding, like the chickens they were and are!
    Now, let’s look at why the Second Amendment was created. It was in case the Government became tyrannical against “We the People”! Do some history digging, read supporting documents like the Federalist Paper #46. A woman asked one of the Founders, what have you wrought here today? The answer was, A Free Republic, if you can keep it!
    If you take the guns away from law abiding people, you will have tyranny like never before.
    You also will lose your entire Constitutional, and all the other ‘Rights’, in the Bill of Rights, and the Freedoms the Founding Fathers gave us! Who could stand against the new tyranny, or protect you and your family from crime, murder, etc.…? It would only be those brave enough to stand up and somehow triumph over all the New Government that you are basically asking for.
    America! Home of the Free, because of the BRAVE!
    Stand up for your Freedoms America! Otherwise, it may become ameriKa! Welcome, Comrade!
    I’d rather have my gun, and not need it, than to need it, and not have it!
    The more the Lefties talk about more, or not enough gun control, gun sales rocket out of our galaxy.
    The good part of that is more Americans are employed by a great American Companies!
    If you love your freedoms, thank a Veteran!!!!!

    ….In 2018 the American government is contested by Republican Fascists and Democrat authoritarian socialists, equally, both are the primary enemies of Democracy and are the primary enemies of Americans. And, at once, both parties are manipulated by Zionist Israelis, who use Americans to unwittingly fight Israel’s wars of aggression.
    The Second Amendment is targeted by the Zionist Israelis.
    ….The conditions in the United Sates are primed for our citizens, those who can still think, to revisit our American Declaration of Independence.

    • Dear Shandu,
      What we are against is Neoliberal capitalism (fascism) privatizing what’s left of our government, and worse. Trump is their front man. Jesus was the man who went to defeat private banking, and at once, supported everything that was community, social capital. (1) Decentralized civilization, civic organization absent centralized government – that subsequent civilization, is the challenge we must meet; to actualize that cultural revolution, which is the only option open to us, for our survival as sane people. The conservative churches to one side, the message of Jesus was that the universal principles that he upheld can only be lived in the lives of men in the context of real community and authentic democracy. They cannot be lived in the alienated mass centralist society, which is owned by the private bank. The National Treasury is an office of the private, Federal Reserve System. That means that for everything that matters regarding the quality of American lives, the for-profit, private bank rules from the back office, much to our peril. The government is nearly, if not already, a pretend democracy. Too many men in positions of control are deficient, and that wicked mad-hatter gremlin has undermined the Cabinet by appointing neoliberals, and neocons; while he has neglected most everything else that needs tended to, such as appointees to other departments and diplomats. He has cut funds to regulatory agencies and public programs, has opened our natural nature reserves to transnational extracting corporations. Indeed, inadvertently, or by design, that gremlin is the worst enemy of Americans this side of you can guess who. We will see very soon if the separation of powers can defend us. On the bright side is the long shot, that we just might, soon, deploy the proper methodology for our independence from pathological repression. In the meanwhile, defending the Bill of Rights is essential; even more pointedly, the Declaration of Independence will be revisited. Authentic, grassroots democracy must come into the light of day. I’m looking forward to your responses. You be well. Reed

            you got it backwards larry.
            even with millennials its only a third want gun control.

            It is only racists and fascists who want gun control, following in the tradition of nearly all gun control laws.

          • Yeah Larry 2/3 of the nation huh? Only through the photoshop lens of CNN. Why isn’t Hillary in office then Larry? Why couldn’t Dian Finestien get the votes for her total ban? Why won’t CNN or congress allow a fair unbiased debate with pro gun experts present for rebuttal? If you’re the majority why are you so afraid of fair debate?It’s because you bought into the propaganda Larry. You believe this BS even though evidence shows you otherwise. Plus, anti-gun debating points can’t stand up the logic. There don’t allow anyone with a different opinion to speak. This seam more like reality to antone else here?

            Probably doesn’t realize the classist, racist or fascist nonsense he’s supporting could be used to strip every single civil right we have.

            Larry is retarded. Don’t feed the troll.

          • You can pass as many laws as you have votes, however there are many million guns in the hands of many million citizens that are unlikely to just lay them down. These same citizens are much more likely to instead pick them up to defend their families and themselves.. These rights that we defend are God given and can not be taken by any other entity.

          • Incorrect. It is only we the people who have the power to set the course for our future. Nothing is given to us and the only rights we have are those we establish for ourselves through laws which ultimately are the will of the people.

          • And the will of the people have said no more gun control, it’s not working.

          • Unfortunately that’s not true. The increasing occurrence of mass shootings, particularly the killings of our children in schools with guns, is waking people up to the insanity of our gun policies.

          • Correction, it is true Larry, your agenda is falling apart
            The people know now the truth, our homicide rate and violent crime is dropping faster than gun control countries rates, while our ownership climbs high and higher

    Any American bank who won’t lend to an AMERICAN company, because of their leftist political views can go out of business as far as I’m concerned.

    I’m tired of liberals blaming conservatives, for the idiotic country liberals created with their enablement.

    Unless you’re a muslim, they took faith out of the classroom. Christians values are no longer allowed in school, federal institutions or ANYWHERE for that matter. Yet, if you wear a burka and are a second class citizen in the eyes of Allah and your muslim husband, it’s cool.

    Standing for the pledge of allegiance is NO LONGER REQUIRED in class.

    Hollywood Celebrities are using children as political pawns, PROGRAMMING your naive kids to be proactive in fighting for THEIR CAUSE against conservatives. (Kids would stage a walkout if they don’t get pizza on Friday, so why not guns too?) I’m sure their liberal teachers manipulated their grades in return.

    Take guns out of Hollywood pictures and NOBODY will watch a damn movie…and that’s fine with me.

    THE LEFT IS SLOWLY CHIPPING AWAY AT THE CORE OF AMERICA AND BLURRING THE LINES REGARDING ITS VALUES. It keeps them in office. It helps them to get elected. They pretend to fight for minorities.

      BTW, we made need to add Wells Fargo to the list of financial institutions; the president of the AFT (American Federation of Teachers?)is scheduled to meet with WF to give them an ultimatum: Either stop working with the firearms industry and the NRA, or the AFT will drop a WF mortgage program offered to members of the AFT. It’s estimated that approximately 20,000 AFT members hold a mortgage through this program. We’ll just have to wait to see what Wells Fargo does.

    subject bills pending

    Dear Representative

    It has come to my attention that you seek to support legislation that applies onerous firearm and ammunition restrictions onto law abiding Pennsylvania citizens.

    Please be aware that I strongly object to changes in current Pennsylvania firearms laws that are proposed by SB 17, SB 18, SB 383, SB 501, HB 175, HB 671, HB 832, HB 870, HB 1233, HB 1400, HB 1872, HB 2060, HB 2097, HB 2109, HB 2149, HB 2150, and HB 2216.

    Most egregiously, many of these proposed laws are in clear contradiction to, and in violation of, Article 1, Section 20 of the Pennsylvania Constitution.

    Although some Representatives and Senators may not like or appreciate certain sections of our state constitution, they took an oath when assuming office to defend the whole constitution. And, I have every reasonable expectation that all State Representatives and Senators who take the oath of office, will honor it faithfully.

    Respectfully,

    • We must vote out all anti constitution politicians. All political parties that create constitutionality contradictory laws should be fired. I believe in states rights but, not above the natural rights of the people. I’m sick of these politicians and corporations deciding what’s safe and what’s right

      Reply

  22. I truly wonder about hyper liberals (socialists) who believe they are virtuous for trying to disarm the world to make it safer. First, that’s crazy to believe. But worse, are they ignorant that enough armed citizens could feel strong enough to start the 2nd civil war should the 2nd amendment be repealed or essentially eviscerated? They can be outraged. We could end this “civil society” should it devolve that far. Pray it not be so.

    I have often wondered when the “million man armed march” on Washington might occur. In my lifetime? With some radicals at the helm, perhaps? Let’s hope these crazy ideas are defeated one at a time until legitimate changes are offered. Like expanding mental health care. Or enforcing current laws prohibiting certain people from firearms access.

    • Either far right (fascism) or far left (centralized socialism) are both counterproductive to Democracy. Democracy presupposes community. In community, civic organization is maintained and is self-managed by structured, dialogical, consensus-based community decision making process; authentic democracy. However, that is contingent on a “production-based” democratized civic-economy. That is the way back to democracy. The decentralization of political economic power is the way back to democracy. In that context, the people would manufacture their quality weapons for their respective use and for the mutual-self-defense of all of their constitutionally confederated sovereign communities; mutual self-defense from either fascism or centralized socialism. Only from a position of real independence, real economic social sovereignty, where in the economic forces are self-managed by the people equally and equitably, can that be accomplished. Fret not, that day too will to come to pass. you be well.

    • ….Dear Steve L.,
      ….The point is as Chris Hedges points out is that the people of mass centralist society are so dejected that they find a sense of meaning in war, assuming it comes upon them.
      ….The society believes in democracy without realizing that democracy is currently dysfunctional in part, because the society is in mass and under centralist control. The economic political wall prevents people from any meaningful participation in policy decisions. Yet, the drama of competitive political parties is imposed on them as if that was a relevant factor in the people’s “participation.” It’s an exercise in futility, because the national treasures of natural reserves, the coast lines have been opened for transactional extraction corporations, and environmental protection is being waived. We are the inheritors of a former United Sates that created entitlements, which are currently encroached upon by private interests.
      ….All that to one side, the America that fostered protected liberties and social security, and public natural reserves, did so in the presence of community, more so than exists today. The problem is that despite the private monetized organizations, through the eighteen hundreds the workers united, the Knights of Labor, and Farm Cooperative, (history from Noam Chomsky) and were establishing their fiscal cooperatives. By force the government, at the behest f the powers that be destroyed those initiatives.
      ….Today, the people are overwhelmed by nationalism and are generally isolated from each other, which is no accident. Divide and conquer is the tactic. People have little awareness of the mechanisms that operate their society. The culture permeates everyone and it seems unchangeable. There is no reason to fear revolution, because that represents another way of life, a better way of life.
      ….There is a methodology forthcoming that will enable people to shift into the production-based economy of the subsequent civilization. It is too long to explain here. However in brief, rather than exchange-value being the “Exchange Element” of society, the Exchange Element of the subsequent civilization would be self-realization, self-actualization, maturity, the spontaneous concern for the well being of others. In other words, there is only one path that leads to independence and sovereignty, and that path is real community; constitutionally confederated sovereign communities. Genuine democracy is America.
      ….You be well.
      ….Reed

  23. The NRA is being blamed by the DimocRATS and the media for mass shootings. Using their logic, we should blame the AAA (American Automobile Association) for the tens of thousand of deaths in automobiles each year!

    • The NRA is being blamed for the mass shootings by most of our nation because the NRA (each of its members) is just as responsible as the shooters for these murders. Can’t stand behind a wall and say “it’s not me” when it’s NRA lobbying and lawsuits that keep semi-automatic and other weapons that are perfect for mass killings in our stores and gun shows.

      • How do you qualify that Larry? Blaming 500,000,000 members of a constitutional advocacy group who hunt and shoot targets for mass killing by a psychopaths. Is just like blaming AAA for drunk driving because they were the insurance carrier. It’s even further gfrom the truth than that because none of these nut bags were members. I’m not a child killer Larry and I’d appreciate if you stopped calling me that, it’s damned insulting and I resent you and your movement for that. Fist and feet kill more people a year than mass shootings. Asking me or any other NRA member to predict and control the actions of others is ridiculous. The police you want to depend on for your security had forewarning about the last 2 shootings and still failed. I am not responsible for the actions of evil people. I just want to protect my home and family. Not to mention yout take away evil people’s tools and they create new ones. Over 300 acid attacks in England, 20,000 rapes an 8% increase. 14,000 stabbings. I can keep going but it will be lost cause talking to sheep who seek to be meat for wolves.

        • Unfortunately Shandu, as a member of the NRA you are a child killer. But you can do something about that by withdrawing from the NRA or actively lobbying the NRA leaders to revise the NRA’s positions to support sensible gun control laws and influencing other members to do the same.

          Reply

          • First, Larry, the NRA is actually not “… being blamed by most of the nation …”. It merely fits the narrative of the main-stream-media to make it appear that way by presenting only the side of the argument that supports their liberal agenda. Survivors of the recent Florida shooting who support our 2nd Amendment and who know that the blame for that tragedy lies solely with several government agencies, well they were not given an opportunity to speak nationally. Apparently this MSM deception actually works on some.

            Second, Larry, you really owe it to yourself to become educated on firearms if you wish to support any legislation against them. I don’t care what caliber, what style, what manufacture, a fully loaded firearm left by itself it will NEVER do anything but eventually oxidize. A firearm requires a finger to squeeze the trigger and cause a discharge. Any human being that would do this to purposely harm an innocent human is seriously disturbed and needs to be removed from society.

            You see, Larry, despite the media hype, there is really no such thing as “gun violence”. A gun by its nature cannot commit violence; it can’t think, it has no emotion or intent. Our problem is better described as “human violence” because that’s exactly what it is. Any mind intent upon murder will attempt to do so by any means available. Banning any firearm will never – ever – change that.

            Until we can acknowledge the elephant in the room that is mental disease, and then deal effectively with that, we will not stop mass murders. Why is it that the only inanimate object blamed for human actions is a gun? I don’t hear a call to ban hammers or knives (except now in the UK), or cars or baseball bats; all have been used, and will be used again, by mentally unstable humans to exact violence on other humans. Hmmm, do you think maybe there could be another agenda with regard to firearms?

            Exactly why would you propose to prevent me from purchasing any firearm I wish? I’m a law-abiding, tax paying, natural born citizen of these United States of America. I’ve done nothing wrong or illegal, and I’ve certainly done nothing to offend you, yet you wish to offend me big-time by seeking to restrict my God-given right to defend myself? That’s pretty brazen of you, don’t you think? What logic dictates punishing the law-abiding for the actions of the criminal or the criminally insane? In what other scenario do we do that? Drivers of automobiles kill far more people than lunatics with firearms, but I’ve never heard a cry to take my driving privilege (which is not a God-given right).

            So tell me Larry, do you honestly believe that banning the millions of legally owned semi-automatic firearms – which includes virtually every handgun that is not a revolver – will have any effect on violent crime? Criminals will be emboldened knowing there is less chance for resistance – crime will increase drastically. Do you believe that the criminals and terrorists are going to comply with a ban? I don’t; they will keep their weapons and buy and make more. As a LAW-ABIDING citizen of this country, I have every right to defend me and my loved ones with at least the same firepower as my potential attackers.

            Third, Larry, if the NRA is such a terrible organization, explain why many states that issue concealed carry permits expressly specify that the training required for that permit must be conducted by an NRA certified instructor; yeah, you read that right. Go ahead, read it again. The NRA has always taught and promoted gun safety and gun-owner responsibility. I would wager that no NRA member has ever committed a mass murder – ever.

            Fourth, Larry, regarding lobbying, Planned Parenthood (your actual baby killers) contributed about 3 times more money to political campaigns in 2016 than did the NRA. And Planned Parenthood is a recipient of nearly a half billion tax-paid dollars. This borders on contribution laundering, but that’s a topic for a different discussion. The NRA receives no tax dollars, and in fact helps to make up shortages for public entities that do not receive enough tax dollars.

            Until you know and understand the meaning and purpose of the U.S. Constitution, which includes the Bill of Rights, you will never understand the importance of the 2nd Amendment, or why the NRA supports it so strongly. Our founding fathers fought long and hard to break the control of the tyrannical king. They knew too well that a government of the people, for the people and by the people – free people – cannot be maintained unless the people can defend themselves against such tyranny. “We the people” are the well regulated militia.

            So you see, Larry, the 2nd Amendment is every bit as important to you as it is to me. The only apparent difference is that I know it. I, for one, am grateful to and hold deep respect for any organization that will take up the battle and defend it against those who would further restrict or abolish it.

            Long live the Republic.

          • Blah, blah, blah…same old rhetoric. Let’s do something about this problem like Planned Parenthood does for so many of our disadvantages citizens.

          • yeah, the gun control folks are full of the same BS as always, ‘gun bad, guns bad,’ blah blah blah, wah wah wah, same nonsense we have heard for decades and has been proven time and again to be nothing but BS and lies.
            Grow up larry, you lost.

          • Hey folks, please don’t feed this stupid troll.

          • Really Larry I’m a child killer just because I hold an NRA membership? I’m really happy the US judicial system isn’t under your control Larry. If it were we wouldn’t need gun control because we would be stuck in the dark ages with slings and arrows. You’re a backwards person with logic derived from a backwards time. Your type of logic represents every tyrannical government body known to man. the Dark Ages, the Spanish inquisition, Salem witch hunts, the Natzi Holocaust all started by giving someone like you power Larry. Someone with the balls to burn someone at the steak for a non existent crime. Call me what you want Larry but, you are a potential slayer of the innocent.

        A semi-automatic weapon is perfect for self defense, a bomb how ever is perfect for mass murder.
        Even the AR fits the DHS description for a personal defense weapon to the letter, and even the CDC has found additional gun control, over what we have at the federal level, is not beneficial for anything.

They have strict gun control policies there. Of course MOST murders were committed with a knife, but still… guns were in fact, part of the equation. Do Knife murders sit better with you?

        My point is, the cold heart is going to kill.
        With a gun.
        With a knife.
        With a Louisville Slugger.
        With a dumbbell (east coast – 4 dead)

        We need to stop the blame game and get to the root of the gun problem… WHICH IS PEOPLE. We need to be more vigilant in teaching/showing kindness and respect to others. That would be a good start.

        Then no one will pick up a gun, knife, Louisville Slugger or a dumbbell to resolve their issues.

  24. I just want to say as a gun owner speaking for myself and every person I’ve ever been to the range with, we don’t support mass shooters as Larry likes to say. All of my friends and I see them as cowards, nut bags, pathetic excuses for human beings. We don’t care about their motives, problems, personal challenges. When the media puts that information out there, it let’s all the other nuts know how to get the attention they fantasize about. I’m tired of being called a child murder when I’ve never pointed a weapon at another human being even in self defense. Stop attacking me police have to profile these depressed people and keep an eye on them the same way they fallow terrorist and bank robbers.

    • Dear Shandu, Thank you for your kind and thoughtful letters.
      Wayne LaPierre in his speech to CPAC disclosed the “side” that he’s on. I am sure he doesn’t represent the thinking of all NRA folks. Nonetheless, most white Americans believe falsely that the American government functions in their best interest, or if they see the government as overrun by private interests, as you do, they like to think that that problem can be somehow fixed. I think the problem of private, economic political power cannot be fixed in the current context.

      The problem with mass shootings in the United Sates is twofold, there are genuine mad men, and there are artificially planned attacks disguised as arbitrary acts by mad men. But, relative to the actual mad men, rather than community, we live in the context of universal alienation. That societal deficiency is a major cause of severe mental illnesses.

      Trump is going into a “trade war” that will damage the economy and his ‘divine wisdom’ claims that doing so will make the country stronger. In that regard, the man is either mentally deficient (or deranged), or he is working for Putin.

      I am a gun enthusiast, too. I like owning and shooting pistols, rifles, and shotguns. I like groundhog shooting. I like turkey hunting. I like going rabbit and squirrel shooting. Meticulous, accurate target shooting engrosses me. I like reading gun and ammunition tests. I like gun maintenance and ammo selections. I like studying military history. I also like the lay of the land, forests, lakes and rivers, and sweet, clear water streams, fishing, camping with the family, cookouts. Those are among the interests I grew up with, passed on to me from my father and grandfather.

      I’m from Ohio, and I have always lived in the country. However, I have been living years in Mexico for business reasons. In Mexico, guns are illegal. That repression is enforced with draconian law. Mexico is a repressive regime, Federal Government Rule, managed and owned by a small, anonymous group of “Mr. Big Bucks” Universal alienation is as bad here as it is in the States.

      I would hate to see the United States lose its local governments. Countering that would require the people’s advance towards independence, which includes taking back the public domain; by black and white Americans learning to establish local economies to support local civic services, utilities, health care and education, with local democracy (that is a structural challenge that will be realized). Until that happens, the people will continue grievously alienated in a mass centralist society. The powers that be will not be concerned about disarming Americans, because they will present no threat to the status quo, so long as they are kept totally dependent on the system, indoctrinated, ignorant, disorganized, and suspicious of each other. At the exact moment Americans learn to turn to each other, for actualizing their mutual independence, that is when “the ax will fall.” Shandu, thank you for your kind conversation. You be well!

    I demand a requirement for an ‘ Unarmed Permit ‘ by state law, that non gun owners must have . costing 12$ a year.
    exemptions ;
    1. if allready a gunowner in the state.
    2. under 21

    WHY? BECAUSE IT TAKES PEOPLE WITH GUNS TO PROVIDE DETERRENCE for there safety.

  26. …. Granted, the NRA is an organization managed by fascists, but a distinction must be made between the NRA and the Second Amendment.
    …. An attack on the Second Amendment is by extension an attack on the First Amendment.
    ….Americans cannot practice democracy, while the American-based class of wealth, and the holy cow, Zion, dictate national legislation and national policy that maim and disable our American Constitution and its Bill of Rights.
    …. Disarming Americans would further entrench that growing repression and subjugation.
    ….No clear thinking American would hold to Abolishing the Second Amendment.
    …Putting teeth into the Second Amendment is contingent on real community. The dominant group has long since omitted the meaning of the word community from the English dictionary. Community means face-to-face people working with each other for each other in order to meet their respective, existential needs equally and equitably.
    ….The arch enemy of any power concentrated beyond the control of the people is independence, is community. The war against Americans, against humanity and by extension against nature, is being fought within our country, and it continues.

    • I agree with the point you are making but, what evidence of fascism have you seen or experienced from the NRA? Do you understand what a fascist is? The NRA has done nothing but advocate for the Second Amendment and the people and businesses that are involved and in support of those rights. People say the NRA gets rich off of gun business. The gun lobby is a tiny dwarf compared to the petroleum Lobby. This lobbing body has been responsible for holding back development of clean energy for it’s own profit and have caused major environmental disasters resulting in death and loss of business. They’re wanting to make everyone dependent on their fossil fuel product is more akin to fascism. The NRA never demanded that everyone be a mandatory gun owner. They just want everyone to have the right to make that choice for themselves. Please look up fascism and get back to me.

      • Dear Shandu ….The fight for power between the fascists and the socialists has been ongoing since WW I and before. When American Knights of Labor and the Farmer’s Cooperative (historic reference by Noam Chomsky) made the way for independent, public, fiscal services, the powers that be destroyed them. The economic masters, the class of wealth has done the public the disservice of making tax payers and benefactors invest in university science and research, the achievements are automatically privatized. Technology is used for profit motive to the exclusion of the human and the natural environment consideration. There is a purpose for private power that outreaches the control of the people, which are domination, repression and subjugation (George Orwell). It has no other function, and that is modern fascism; Neoliberal economics and American/Israeli neocons (neocons, neoconservative, is one who demands American military superiority on the globe.) The National Treasury is interpenetrated with the Federal Reserve System (David Harvey
        …Madness of Economic Reason); together they channel Federal Reserve Notes, “barrowed by the people,” into whatever the government can find to spend it on. The purpose is to keep the money moving despite the interest. They can’t find another means to maintain exchange-value viable.
        Simultaneously, the World Bank and the IMF, which are extensions of the FRS, seek out countries that can be loaned into foreclosure, Greece and Puerto Rico among others. The means to that end is political, by supporting the wiling candidate.
        Opening up the natural reserves in America for the pleasure of the transnational extracting corporations, and by extension for the class of wealth, is an unconscionable act on the part of Trump and his buddies Stephen Miller (fascist, racist) and Steve Bannon (Alt-right –“… intellectual racists and anti-Semites, “neo-reactionaries” who argue against democracy, human rights, and other manifestations of modernist philosophy” (1)
        … a fascist by any other name, and, John Bolton (a neocon), among the others in that bunch, that push Trump to immoral immigration policies for their nefarious reasons, and so on. But, to rob the natural reserves from the people is more than cruel. It robs our best chance to live in harmony with nature as viable communities. The theme of western society is oppression (Paulo Freire). You be well.
        I’ll get to Wayne LaPierre and the NRA in the Next section.

        • Thank you Reed I kind of understand where you are coming from. I just thought of the NRA as getting the pro constitution people’s voice out to Congress the way the big boys do. The opposition loves portraying the NRA as the voice of big gun business from what I’ve seen there isn’t much big gun business in America anymore police and military buy glocks, SIGs, H&K all foreign companies. Making American manufacturers small by comparison. Then I ask why is the fight uphill, why are so many rich corporations concerned with disarming the populace? They’ve never had a concern for public safety before. My only answer is something is going down. And when everyone realizes how the government and big business has robbed us blind it’s better to have a populace in that state of anger disarmed. Or go out like the king of France.

          • And, Shandu, as you say, something is going down. It is the privatization of all public assets, public services, entitlements, public property, and natural nature reserves. If everything public is privatized, it means the end of the last vestige of government for the people. It means, rather than government, the economic monopoly and unmitigated dictatorship of the class of wealth, repressing all the underlings, which would be most Americans. It’s a mad scheme that can become a disaster for Americans, low wages forever, and no essential services unless families can pay for them at retail prices, private schools, private fire departments, private police force, private courts, private military, no protection from arbitrary persecution, for whatever pretext, no human rights, no constitutional protections from search and seizure, arbitrary arrests and detention, no Bill of Bights, and so on. That is what we Americans must learn to prevent. But, since the economic political system is a closed box to us, a new, decentralized, democratic organization must be actualized. You be well!

  27. To the NRA Institute for Legislative Action: I think that you guys are seriously “outgunned”! Based on your list, your detractors are far greater than your list of supporters (in terms of groups). It’s all over except for your crying!

    • Say what you will, as your words lead to more and more frequent donations to the NRA. Your bleating strengthens the NRA. Bleat away.

    • Sure! If you’re anti-second amendment with no reasons or thought to matter apparently. Just “Add my name to the list too.” Ok no problem. Plenty of room in the flock of sheeple. Just fallow them and depend on the government to take care of them until it’s slaughter time. Look how well that strategy has worked for the American Indian. Depend on the government for security Florence. Maaaaa there’s a wolf here Maaaaa where’s the shepherd!? Maaaaa he’s coming this way! Maaaa!

      • Very good. It’s all too bad really. This list needs updating as well A lot of these companies don’t have a reason to stand against the second amendment IE Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. I will miss Chunky monkey dearly. Ban of America just took a stand against the NRA specifically how can you call yourself Bank of America and then take a stand against the constitution? But I digress. I was going to switch to Wells Fargo because they have not taken a stand 1 way or the other until, I found out that they are business partners. Bank of America just played the Anti-gun camp hardcore. Just like all the other liberal organizations are playing these children and parents who tend to know hardly anything about current gun laws already in place. Or their rights under the Constitution of the United States of America and what they are for. That’s why we call you people sheep. Understand? Live stock doesn’t ask questions or seek truth. They just eat what they’re fed.

    • Some extreme Anti-gunners have even spoken of of repealing the entire Constitution. I haven’t read the entire document but, I know enough to know with it we may as well put slave chains on in trade for a small cabin and the masters leftovers after a sun up to sun down workday. And no Larry the constitution doesn’t provide the right to kill school children.

      • To your point, if they ever do manage to successfully take the 2nd Amendment away, there will be nothing to stop them from ripping-up the remaining amendments and the entire U.S. Constitution. That’s why the 2nd is so damn important – to both sides.

        The socialists need to get rid of it to complete their total takeover and appoint their dictator. The conservatives need the 2nd Amendment to prevent the socialist takeover and preserve our Republic. Long live the Republic!

        • I agree. Sounds like an end game. Doesn’t make much sense with Russia and China wanting to become the new gold standard. Or maybe it does they would need an un armed populace when the truth comes out about what’s really in the federal reserve and how our value has been gambled and traded away and, spent on military power to maintain the status quo.
