"That is why the NRA refused, even after appeals by many political, social, and religious leaders, to postpone or cancel the NRA annual meeting in Denver 10 days after Columbine."
Just one thing... The NRA did not commit murder in Columbine. Two fruitcake, homicidal, VERY disturbed boys committed that atrocity. Don't give me any vagueries about how the NRA's powerful gun lobby. Do you know what constitutes that gun lobby? Normal Americans who don't want someone to take away their firearms. It's no "evil corporate" strawman. It's your neighbors, family, and maybe even *gasp* some of your friends that pay dues to the NRA in order to have their voices heard in Washington.
I want ILLEGAL guns off of the streets. You know- those same ILLEGAL guns that were not LEGALLY sold by law-abiding citizens. You know- some of those guns that were STOLEN or ILLEGALLY PURCHASED?? We DO have laws in this country regarding everything from how you cross the street, and how you purchase a home to how you procure and maintain firearms and people break them every day. Do you REALLY think that if you made gun ownership illegal that gun violence would just magically disappear? Not gonna happen, folks.
