I'm not sure of the accuracy of that 2% figure; I suppose it's based on NRA members. Still, I feel that there are many, many gun owners such as myself that while not an NRA member, appreciate the fact that there's a group out there helping to protect my rights.
And, seeing as how you libs have no issues shoving a Transgender agenda down our throats for what amounts to less than 1% of the population, your argument doesn't work with me.
Now, what law would you have a responsible lawmaker write that will keep people from killing others?
Maybe like put them in prison or something like that if they do commit a murder?
Sorry, SP, but he is mostly right on this and the Transgender comparison is fair. Just because a small group of people promote an idea, or are part of a group, does not make them wrong. I believe your point was to say the NRA has an impact far greater than its membership, but so do Transgendered people.
Probably best to stick with the question of what a responsible lawmaker will do. That is the only way forward.
