NRA Vows to Defend Gun Rights

Meeting with Joe Biden went pretty much how one might expect

|

The nation's largest gun-rights lobby says some participants at its White House meeting seemed more interested in demonizing the Second Amendment than keeping students safe.

The National Rifle Association met with Vice President Joe Biden's school safety study group on Thursday and afterward said the participants spent most their time on proposals to limit gun rights. The NRA says it, quote, "will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen."

  1. I’m so sick of people always prefacing gun owners as “law abiding.” Does anyone know how many laws there are in the US? Millions? There’s no way anyone ALWAYS follows “the law.” How about changing the rhetoric to “peaceful” or “responsible?” And defending the Second Amendment is like their job anyway.

  2. Between my ACLU and NRA memberships, I’m almost a real person!
