Because draconian firearms laws have worked so very well in Detroit, Chicago and California.
Good for the NRA...civil rights should not end at a country's borders.
The "right" to own guns in America is nothing more than a law making it legal.
The definition of "right" = a moral or legal entitlement to have or obtain something or to act in a certain way.
I own guns. Do I think I have a moral entitlement to own them? Absolutely not. Does God want me to own guns? (as in 'God given right'?)… no, absolutely not. Do I require them? Do I think society needs them? No, having traveled, I can attest that those societies in existence today are safer societies without guns or with heavy limitations on them.Do I think 'fear' drives America's obsession with guns? Absolutely.
Seems that if the continued death of American school children at the hands of gun profiteers doesn't bother Americans, selling weapons for profit in other countries certainly won't matter much to them.
"Gun rights" is a non-sequitur. PEOPLE have rights, guns are products used for killing.
Selling them is easy, you just make people angry and afraid.
There can be no future for the human race as long as profiteers are allowed to sell instruments of death.
The NRA is a private organization of NRA members, individuals paying dues and enthusiast of firearms. No different than a Tbird collectors car club promoting themselves wherever and whenever they decide.
The gun manufacturers invented the NRA to perpetrate the largest and most lucrative scam in the history of the USA. It is sad to see them exporting the propaganda and delusional thinking, as well as the death, outside our borders.
Unfortunately like other worthwhile organizations this one has become a MEGA money propaganda machine. Multi million paid CEO's and employees.
Good for the NRA...the fight for .civil rights should not stop at any nation's border...
Democrats have history of promoting unlawful behavior INSIDE U.S. (see illegal immigration)
I love how this group has refused to acknowledge even the existence of Russian spy Maria Butina infiltrating their "patriotic" organization.
"National" Rifle Association? No.
More like International Profitmonger Organization.
America has a long history of promoting democracy outside of the US. We should all be furious.!
The NRA has always opposed allowing felons or those adjudicated mentally ill to posses firearms and strongly supported HR 2640 NCIS Improvement act which would have helped keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. The NRA has several gun safety programs and organizes competition events around the country. We have been forced by gun ban activists to become politically active. Primary funding for the NRA comes from more than 5 million members and their families. (Gun ban groups are primarily supported by a handful of billionaires)People in other parts of the world ask the NRA for assistance in competition organization, safety and fighting for their rights. They ask, the NRA responds.
As a law abiding and responsible firearm owner (just a couple of small caliber long guns) who agrees with the courts about the 2A not being unlimited or unrestricted, usually with these kind of articles we get the real "gun nuts" out in force.
Well, NRA’s extra-jurisdictional dealings didn’t help Venezuelans stop their government from banning personal ownership of firearms.
And we know how that came back to haunt them.
The interference by the NRA in the affairs of other countries is just the latest form of American imperialism.
The NRA should know that a majority of citizens in most countries outside the US support regulation of firearms. The NRA is certainly not welcome up here in Canada.
The NRA and questionable platform and policy, check out the "Gun Owners of America (GOA)"
"make it easier to sell American guns overseas"
Of course the NRA is doing everything it can to promote gun sales. When you are completely owned by the gun manufacturers what else are you going to do? America is the leading seller of arms in the world. And of course the NRA will tell all of us that we're safer every time another person on the planet has the means to murder others with automated weapons.
