    Note The Sudden Silence of the NRA.....

     

       In the wake of the Newtown massacre, the NRA has been conspicuously silent. Yesterday they pulled their Facebook page........ Why??? They did not even release an expression of of sympathy or condolence or comdemnation of the act....WHY?

    The NRA has been selling the American people a pile of disingenuous, sanctimonious, second ammendment bull shiitt. Let me ask you this?..... Is your assault weapon gonna be capable of standing up to Government tyrranny or tanks?  Probably not.....even if you have expanded magazine capacity. Will your assault weapon protect your "Freedom"....probably not....

    But the assault rifle in the wrong hands seems perfectly capable of slaughtering our innocent citizenry.!

    "Though the NRA in particular has faced criticism from social media users over what some deem its "cowardly" silence online, marketing consultant Peter Shankman said that keeping mum may be the groups' best and only option in the immediate aftermath of the school shooting, given their stance against gun control.

    In Shankman's view, even a tweet or Facebook status from the NRA expressing its condolences for the families of the deceased might be inappropriate.

    "It's hypocritical," Shankman said. "'Our prayers go out to families of the kids killed with tools we vigorously defend.'"




    Thank you, your post drives home my point!

    It actually doesn't but that's ok



    So, in other words, the NRA won't issue a statement expressing sympathy for the victims and there families because it would be harmful to their cause - which is to promote gun sales for gun manufacturers. Good. I hope that every American citizen understands that the NRA is putting gun sales above human compassion. You want the definition of Un-American? That is it right there.

    The NRA issueing a note of sympathy is like Tobacco companies sending flowers to the funeral of a lung cancer victim.

    The attack is on the shoulders of the shooter.  The body count is on the shoulders of the NRA.

    Maybe it's high time we treated the NRA like we do the tobacco industry?

    Re: Note The Sudden Silence of the NRA.....

    Stepping into the noticiable void of comment by the NRA, the Gun Owners of America, the other prominent gun lobby in DC has this to say about the Sandy Hook shooting

    "In addition to the gunman, blood is on the hands of members of Congress and the Connecticut legislators who voted to ban guns from all schools in Connecticut (and most other states). They are the ones who made it illegal to defend oneself with a gun in a school when that is the only effective way of resisting a gunman.

    What a lethal, false security are the "gun-free zone" laws. Virtually all mass murders in the past 20 years have occurred in gun-free zones. The two people murdered several days earlier in a shopping center in Oregon were also killed in a gun-free zone."

    They continue:

    "One measure of insanity is repeating the same failure time after time, hoping that the next time the failure will turn out to be a success. Gun-free zones are a lethal insanity.

    Israel finally came to grips with this in the early 1970s and have decisively stopped these attacks after a busload of children was massacred by Muslim terrorists. When I was there in the late 1990s, if you saw a busload of students, you saw at least one young teacher with a machine gun protecting the groups of students."

    I say we make the gun-free zones bigger.  That ought to work.

    False analogy. Society would never allow a staff member of a school to carry a semi automatic (firstly) and secondly given the weaponry of the perpetrator, the staff member would never even have time to draw their weapon.

    Human compassion is now a "lefty ideology"? I am okay with that. Splains why the GOP brand is so damaged these days.

    If I the money and the juice I would bring a lawsuit against the NRA for  being an accessory to a crime committed by some one with assualt rifle because of their work on preventing a ban on assualt rifles. You could force the NRA to defend themselves out of existence.

    In response to WhichOnesPink2's comment:

    Based on that logic I would sue the govt for not renewing the ban on assault rifles because at the end of the day it's congresses fault it wasn't renewed.



    People have tried to sue congress or admin agencies for the mere failure to act, but, the Supreme Court said no. You don't have standing to sue simply on the basis that you are a tax payer.

     

    Government actors are very hard to sue in general, also.



    But the companies have exposure.  Quite a bit of money was paid out to the victims of the sniper killings in the Washington area.  A similar weapon was used.  If the legislative branch can't act the judicial branch may do so.
