    The most murderous terrorists in America are members of the NRA and are responsible for 35,000 American deaths every year and on going massacres all over the country every year. Every soulless degenerate member of the NRA should be prosecuted for causing horrific terrorist acts for generations in America.

    Our media talks about terrorists like they are the worst thing in the world, but they never talk about the fact that the NRA and gun nuts are responsible for hundreds of thousands of more deaths each year than terrorist attacks.

    A little over 3,000 Americans have died from terrorist attacks since 2001. Over 406,000 Americans have died at the hands of gun nuts since 2001.

    For all you gun nuts--406,000 is a bigger number than 3,000.

    How many of these killers were actual members of the NRA and how is that they are responsible for 35,000 deaths per year, considering that many of these deaths are attributed to criminal activities by persons not allowed to own a firearm .

    The NRA fights against any and all legislation that would make it more difficult for anyone, law abiding or not, from getting their hands on any gun they can. There is no gun or clip size the NRA thinks if off limits.

    So the NRA and any gun nut who blindly follows their propaganda is directly responsible for these atrocities because they make it impossible for states or the Federal Government to make it harder for people to get their hands on weapons of war.

    They have the blood of countless American citizens on their hands, but they don't give a shit because the only thing they care about is making sure America is awash with as many guns as humanly possible.

    Jared, these shooters have nothing in common with the NRA other than knowing how to shoot a firearm, your grievance is with the legislators, who apparently follow their constitutes wishes and vote accordingly, and some feel that it's really pandering to gain another term, so even knowing this the voters still vote these officials to another term. So what's the solution? I see the problem as needing better access during the background check, especially in the area of mental health and not more restrictive laws.

    The best way to stop a man with a gun shooting up a place is to discuss things with him? Or do you believe the only reason this criminal has a gun is because of the legality to buy a gun and the bullets?

    Since the person is already shooting up the place I believe discussion would be a moot point,however if someone else was armed and was in the place being shot up that could possibly be a starting point for a conversation, yeah right. if it were me I would have shot the person.

    The NRA allows these crackpots to be able to carry out their fantasies buy refusing to admit this country has a serious gun control problem. When owning a gun gives someone the belief they are invincible then what can we expect but violence. There is NO reason why any American should be able to (much less should) own more than one hunting rife and a few rounds of ammunition - NONE, other than the sick American preoccupation with guns!

    I'll just want to add that within every 16 minutes someone here in the US gets killed by a gun.

    the nra is a shill for gun manufacturers, nothing more or less. their own members support more background checks yet the nra management/shill team blocks this at every turn.

    as for having everyone armed would result in fewer gun deaths we must look at the situations that occur where police shoot multiple shots to take out someone. does anyone think civilians would have better luck and more accuracy? hardly. iirc, the same applies to combat. and before some fool rattles off switzerland as an example the swiss people are far more mature than the people of the united states. the immaturity and chest-thumping machismo of the american is a fuse waiting to be lit with every little perceived slight and argument. we rest to violence first. that foremost is why more guns is not and never will be the "answer."

    Yes "lonely" we are number one in arrogance in world ; indeed "chest thumping machismo" is the right expression.

    Therefore as I said many times; our love for guns, military, wars and evangelism, that will be our demise eventually.

    Ignorance is the real enemy, for which the response on religious and gun nuts are enemies. Apparently, you don't have a clue who's the enemy. I can partially agree on gun nuts, but there is a reason for the 2nd Amendment and if observed and managed in society is worthy of respect in this nation. You forgot the mentally ill with guns, unless you mean gun nuts are those with a mental illness and gun are gun nuts. Not all mentally ill people are nuts, which is a derogatory term and falsely labeling people with a mental illness is nuts. So, again it is ignorance that people respond like this against religion and gun nuts............you just don't know who the factual enemy is.

    On religion our nation was built on many religious principles. Most universities and hospitals have been built by religions. Cultures around America is a result of religious influence. Our laws of the nation was influenced by religion. You should read and make better interpretation of religion in America's history. In fact, there is strong influence of religions building most all countries in the world.

    I anticipate a response denying the facts, but I've known this about you all that will do anything to discredit religion at all cost......even lie and misquote. It's an apparent character issue on this Democratic Hub.

    Yes, ignorance is the real enemy and its ignorance that refuses to let peace have a chance. God is patient with us and His door is always open for those who desire to meet.

    No AMC ; no "human invented" god thing has patience with us; because whatever may be up there does not know that word; ask the billion stars up there.

    Regardless of "religion" we as tiny nothing people determine our own destiny and nothing from outside this globe interferes, unless you can prove such. So put guns and religion together then you get an ISIS situation. Or put guns, religion and politics together then you get ( Hitler) Trump. I hope you understand for a change that religion is only a "tool"to get power over the people, as well to "soften" the blow of "death" with a huge lie.
