Declare the NRA a supporter of domestic terrorism

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is no longer purely a sportsmen's organization. It spends enormously (over $3 million per year since 2013) to keep our gun policies in a retrograde, 18th century state such that there is effectually no gun control in the United States.  More Americans have died from gun violence (over 1.5 million) than from all the wars since the Revolution, and Americans overwhelmingly want some gun control. A sensible reading of the 2nd Amendment would allow gun ownership but restrict purchase of equipment designed for mass murder: large clips, military grade semi-and fully automatic rifles, and ammunition for the same, which could be as easily tracked as over-the-counter medication. None of this will be regulated while the NRA is allowed to influence public policy.

One of the many stupid things NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre (who earns nearly a million dollars a year) has said is that "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." This is rarely true and unfortunately doesn't help the shooter's victims. In the latest case in Las Vegas where over 500 people were shot with automatic gunfire, the shooter was completely inaccessible and shot himself before police arrived. Mostly what the NRA does now is actively spread the demand for weapons, enriching gun and ammo manufacturers while putting Americans at increasing risk of being shot. The NRA as it stands should be declared an organization that supports domestic terrorism. The victims of Oct 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, the 2016 Orlando shooting, Sandy Hook Elementary, etc. deserve no less. 

I will update this petition with links and contact information as it gains support. Please sign the MoveOn.org petition calling for the same designation.
