Subject: RE: BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz
Can't say that logic really stands up too well, O'Meara. Basically it's saying "even if the overwhelming majority of fellow Americans were to decide they want a clamp-down on private ownership of some types of guns, and they force the politicians to fall in line with this, and if need be they modift the Constitution so that that becomes practicable, we intend to hold on to our guns regardless."

I can understand there might be some far-out fanatics like that, the kind of people who join freaky paranoid militias (as opposed to "well regulated" ones envisaged in your Constitution), but it doesn't sound like the way a mainstream mass organisation in a democracy would be thinking.

And if that actually is the way the members of the NRA do think, then it would rather suggest that any ordinary sensible gun owner should look for another organisation to represent their interests.
