Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
The NRA and the gun lobby are, unfortunately, not the deciding element in this issue.
The gun manufacturers would start going broke and the NRA would look pretty silly if there weren't a massive demand by Americans for firearms.
Think about it: 310 million guns but only 300 million Americans. And the guns are still rolling off the assembly lines.
But the reasons - never fully explained - must go a lot deeper than the NRA lobbying Congress and threatening the public with tales of Obama coming with thugs to get their guns.
The people want guns, dude! Men and women! Guns 'n guns 'n guns 'n guns. It don't matter for what: they just want 'em! They crave 'em!
