Roots of the NRA

Here is the short version:

The full version is over an hour long. You can choose for yourself whether or not you want to invest that much time on this topic.

This is not something Marx would have discussed in the “Communist Manifesto.”  This occurred in America prior to Marx’s “utopian government plan” was even conceived.  The entire world was in “oligarchical” governments control.  See American Culture for the “Runaway Slave” posting.

    I agree that the second amendment should not be touched. Guns give people a sense of security and if they want to have a gun for protection, then let it be. People need to stop blaming guns for killing people when it is the person behind the gun pulling the trigger.
    There are places around the world where guns are not the problem.

  2. I am not sure where I stand for this argument. I am against it because guns are dangerous since many people use them irresponsibly. But at the same time I am for it because it does protect oneself from danger. I think we should just be more careful in who is allowed to carry a gun.

  3. This was pretty interesting because I never really knew who founded the NRA. I thought it was clever how the last individual speaking stated, ” When you touch the second admendment you can’t become more anti-american..” We should continue to protect our rights and not allow this ban, because that will just be a gateway to allowing more rights to be taken away.

  4. Im sure a lot of people on both sides want this law to either to pass or not. I think because we do have the right to protect ourselves we have the right to do so as we please. If people want to protect themselves with guns, they should go through the right steps of owning a gun.

  5. I honestly don’t know if the law should pass or not. I sometimes think it is not fair for some crasy people to be able to have guns. But at the other hand we should have all people arm. So everyone should be able to have the right to proctect them self and live better in a safer place.

  6. I recently read this quote about gun control that I wanted to share it because I thought it was so funny, “yesterday I placed my shotgun on the front porch, gave it six shells, and noticing it had no legs, placed it in a wheelchair to help it get around. I left it alone and went about my business.
    While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the boy across the street picked up my yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the stop sign near my house. After 10 hours, I checked on the shotgun. It was still sitting in the wheelchair. It had not rolled outside and It had not killed anyone in spite of many opportunities that had been presented. It had not even loaded itself. Can you imagine how surprised I was with all the hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people? Either the media is wrong and the killing is by people misusing guns or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world. So now I’m off to check on my spoons, because I hear they make people fat.”

  7. Guns were ultimately made to help people, keep them safe, and protect. Gun control takes away freedom, safety, and protection. I don’t even know what to say with this law pressing to pass. It really is an “anti-American” thing to do.

  8. What they are saying makes sense, I can see gun control being people control. If what they are saying is true then it would in fact be unconstitutional for them to pass the law. Racism was such a big problem back in the day, something that strong unfortunately never really goes away. So it makes sense how it could be hidden under such things like gun control.

  9. I love how the Liberal Democrats show the NRA as gun toting racists red necks who just want to shoot things and scream “woooweeee” when in reality, they are the people who recognize their constitutional freedoms are to protect themselves from the government. It’s like the founding fathers just knew, they completely knew when someone is apart of the government, they will strive to obtain more power, and do what is apart of their agenda.

  10. The history of the NRA was very interesting! I had no idea that the NRA was created to protect slaves and show them how to use guns. The NRA has done a lot to protect people, and it would be wrong to get rid of the 2nd amendment. There would be no way people could defend themselves, and the whole purpose of the NRA is to protect yourself and the right to bear arms. There fighting for our 2nd amendment rights.

  11. If the gun control law does pass, it will go against the 2nd amendment of the constitution. There are so many rights and personal freedoms being taken away too often. Having possession of a gun should be a personal choice.

  12. I think Machiavelli had it right don’t disarm the people. Never heard these point of views and don’t know what to think of them. I would like to think that the Constitution must be preserved.

  13. I honestly don’t know what to think about this video. The world has so many different views on guns that I don’t think anybody even knows what they believe any more.

  14. No one should be able to violate our right. Everyone should be able to have to the right to be able to protect their self. Gun control is a big stepp towards a greater problem.

  15. I don’t like the NRA and I don’t like guns. Our country has way too many of them and is too afraid to regulate them for fear that they might be going against the second amendment. Our country is way different today than it was when the Bill of Rights was written. I think maybe our constitution could be flawed. It just makes me sick. So many people are so quick to defend the second amendment. I think the second amendment needs amending.

  16. A quick overview for anyone unable to watch the whole video.

  17. I laughed a little when they panned out into the audience revealing more people on stage than in the audience. I perked up a little when the the first speaker said, “God has given us these rights . . . ” I understand now why the conspiracists say that the tyrannical governments will go after the Christians and constitutionalists first because they do not rely on the government to differentiate between good and evil. I liked that the second made the parallel with the repression of the Jim Crow laws of the South. The third speaker may have turned off the atheists in the crowd during his introduction due to his creationist views, but he may have won them over with his comedic remarks. He goes on to talk about the common sense of having guns vs. not having guns. The fourth speaker reveals that the NRA was started by religious leaders who wanted to protect the blacks from the KluKluxKlan. He goes on to explain how deeply integrated with our lives, and even bashing the entire anti-gun movements as a diversion to our real problems. The fifth speaker tells his story about his experiences with guns, and how the media is dragging guns and gun owners through the mud. He also talks about personal responsibility cannot be replaced with a politician, etc. The sixth speakers goes on to explain racism in politics, and the gun laws are intended to controlling the people. The seventh speaker talks about the failure of gun laws to protect the people. She then makes a simile between obesity and guns. The eighth speaker calls Obama and his administration out on his inconsistency with Christian values and infringement on the constitution. He then speaks of guns with the help of God as the tools to acquire freedom. He then calls the current political agenda is anti-American, “When they take our guns, then they will take our God.” The ninth speaker tells his story of growing up in California, and how his community had dramatically changed. His son was gunned down on his front porch. He speaks of God’s reaction to Cane’s murder of his brother, and how God did not ban the murder weapon, but the murderer. He then speaks of guns and himself being the first line of defense. It concludes with a question and answer session. I enjoyed this press conference very much, and I hope this changed people’s views on guns.
