    The NRA is going to espouse Far Right Causes??!! I'm shocked, shocked I say!!!! Seriously, guns were never more than a front for their anti-people agenda. Now it seems even they can't believe their Bull anymore.

    Another deadly mixture. Can anything good come from gun addicts but more sells for the industry and more deaths on American streets? The NRA is at the epicenter of America's vices. Clothing their depraved, reckless mindsets with any other issues, are just superficial and insincere add-ons to continue deceiving Americans.
