They don't have more votes, that's why the Senate and Congress are currently Republician. Over 35% of those who voted in that election said they identified with the NRA. That total would be much higher if the fight was over a total ban. Besides, thanks to the antihandgunners we now have the militia's. (sarcasm) Think I'm kidding folks? The whole militia movement took off after the anti-gun folks tried to claim the second amendment only applied to "militia's".

The NRA's whole problem is that they don't make themselves clear to non-members. The NRA is about FREEDOM. I remember when I used to vote for so called "Pro-choice" candidates, then I found out they were pro-choice on only one issue. I was supposed to support their rights while they took mine away...... No more, I vote based on how a candidate feels about the 2nd Amendment. let the "Pro-choicers" fight for their own rights, it'll keep them from taking away mine.

I quit the NRA/ILA a few years ago when they refused to see what was comming, and how we could have prevented it by timely action on our part. There were a number of influential members who wanted me to run for president back then.

You are right here, we need to point out the inconsistencies, guns are legal in New York, murder is low, guns are illegal in Chicago, murder capitol of the U.S.
