Declare the NRA a supporter of domestic terrorism

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is more a political lobby than sportsmen's organization. It has spent over $3 million per year since 2013 to keep gun policies in an antiquated state despite the fact that  more Americans have died from gun violence (over 1.5 million) than from all the wars since the Revolution, and now want some form of gun control. A sensible reading of the 2nd Amendment would 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. Yet none of it will be regulated while the NRA effectively controls the GOP. While not a branch of government, the NRA has enormous impact on American life by coercing politicians and voters with money and intimidation, and restricting our safety and public health.  Former NRA CEO and multi-millionaire Wayne LaPierre has said that "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun." As at Stoneman Douglas High, where three or four armed deputies waited outside during the shooting, this is rarely true and unfortunately doesn't help the shooter's victims. In Las Vegas, where over 500 people were shot with automatic gunfire, the shooter was inaccessible and shot himself before police arrived. In the wake of these horrific attacks the NRA mobilizes to enrich gun and ammo manufacturers while putting Americans at increasing risk of being shot.  Domestic terrorism continues to rise in Trump era. White nationalist groups were eager to claim the shooter in Parkland as one of their own. The NRA facilitates both the arming and the militant ideology of these groups, supporting domestic terrorism. While right-wing politicians divert or attention with imagined threats from immigrants, the NRA does real harm to democracy, spreading anti-government hysteria and the idea of armed insurrection. FBI director Wray recently testified regarding the danger of armed, right-wing extremism amid growing white nationalism. The FBI should stop hesitating and brand the NRA for its leading role in providing cover for this disease.  The victims of Santa Fe High (TX), Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Fl), Sutherland Springs (11/5/17), Las Vegas (10/2/17), the  2016 Orlando shooting, Sandy Hook Elementary, Tree of Life Synagogue, Dayton, El Paso, Santa Clarita (11/14/19) and on and on deserve no less.  Please sign the MoveOn.org petition, another petition seeking to designate the NRA a terrorist organization under the Patriot Act, and support the Violence Policy Center.

Your supposed to lead us BIDEN NOT INFRINGE ON OUR RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS. You know most gun crimes happen with pistols not even rifles Biden u just want to control the guns so u can control the population. And that will prosper over my dead body I hold my 2nd very close to my heart and I know a lot of people who feel the same way Biden GOOD LUCK BUD! YOUR GONNA NEED IT! IT IS TIME THAT WE RISE UP AND FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHTS! SPECIFICALLY NO SURPRISE ITS THE SECOND AMMENDMENT AGAIN! WHAT THEY WANT IS TO BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE POPULATION. BUT WE ARE NOT A MOB OF PEOPLE TO BE “CONTROLLED” we are citizens of the great country of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WE ARE UNITED FOR A REASON AND ITS TIME WE FIND OUT WHY UNITED IS WRITTEN IN OUR NAME!! ITS TIME THAT WE AMERICANS STAND FOR OUR RIGHTS AND DEFEND THEM WITH HONOR JUST AS OUR FATHERS DID AND THEIR FATHERS AND THEIR FATHERS BEFORE THEM. WE MUST HAVE A VOICE IN ORDER TO BE HEARD. IN A CRY OUT FOR UNITY! FROM NOW ON, I WILL BE KNOWN AS THE CALI GUNSMITH. I, THE CALI GUNSMITH HEREBY CALL UPON ALL THE 52 STATES AND THE TRUE FREE AMERICAN CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY AND THOSE THAT ARE TRUE PATRIOTS THAT STAND TALL NEXT TO THE AMERICAN FLAG THAT REPRESENTS PRIDE, FREEDOM, LIBERTY, HUMANITY, AND THE VALUE OF A EACH AND EVERY LAST LIFE OF EVERY LAST AMERICAN CITIZENS. AMERICAS TAKES PRIDE IN ITS PEOPLE AND IT FREEDOM OF CHOICE. FREEDOM TO VOTE AND PEACE OF MIND THAT AMERICANS GET KNOWING THEIR VOICES WILL BE HEARD IN THE FORM OF A BALLOT THAT WILL CONTRIBUTE TO THE BILLION OTHER AMERICAN VOTES WHOS VOICES WILL ALSO BE HEARD.    ITS NOT THE FACTS THAT ARE DIFFERENT BIDEN, ITS THE FILTER. I APPRECIATE YOUR GESTURES AS OF LATE TO WORK WITH THE REPUBLICANS WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO CREATING LAWS. PERIOD THAT IS WHAT WE ALL CAN AGREE ON, IS DEMOCRACY, THAT BEING SAID I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THERE ARE MORE VOTERS IN FAVOR OF GUNS AND RIGHTFULLY BELIEVE THAT GUNS DONT KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE AND BANNING GUNS WONT DO ANYTHING TO PREVENT THEM REACHING THE HANDS OF THE TERRORISTS, AS THE TERRORISTS IS GOING TO GET THEIR GUNS REGUARDLESS OF OUR LAWS.  ALSO, GUNS DO NOT DISCRIMINATE. GUNS DONT CARE ABOUT WHO U ARE WHAT YOU BELIEVE WHO YOU LIKE WHO YOU DONT LIKE WHEN U PICK UP THE GUN AND U PLACE YOUR FINGER ON THE TRIGGER AND LOAD THE WEAPON YOU ARE NOW U ARE THE ONLY THING IN THE WAY OF THAT BULLET LEAVING THE BARREL OR NOT YOU ARE THE ONLY THING THAT STANDS IN THE WAY OF THAT ACTION. THIS IS NOT AN EXCEPTION FOR MASS TERRORISTS THEY ARE THE ONES THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR SHOTS NOT THE GUNS THEMSELVES. U CAN CALL AN ASSAULT RIFLE AN ASSAULT RIFLE ALL U WANT IT DOENS MAKE IT AN ASSAULT RIFLE, UNTIL U PUT IT IN THE HANDS OF A PERSON WHO IS GOING TO USE IT TO ENGAGE IN THE ACT OF AN ASSAULT WITH THE USE OF A GUN, ONLY THEN CAN IT LEGITAMITELY BE CALLED A "ASSAULT RIFLE". THE GUN DID NOT GROW A BRAIN AND START INTELLIGENTLY ENGAGING TARGETS ALL WITHOUT A TRIGGER MAN. SORRY THAT DOESNT HAPPEN, WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS FOCUS ON THAT TRIGGER MAN REALLY DIG DEEP INTO THAT PERSONS LIFE AND ANALYZE HOW CAN WE STOP SOMEBODY LIKE THIS, OR BETTER YET, HOW CAN WE PREVENT A PERSON LIKE THIS BECOMING THE PERSON HE WAS AND THE MASS SHOOTER THAT HE TURNED OUT TO BE. WHAT MAKES SOMEONE LIKE THAT TURN SO BAD HOW DID THEY GET TO THAT POINT THERE HAS TO BE A WAY TO PREVENT IT FROM COMING ABOUT BY WORKING THAT ANGLE, THERES GOTTA BE A WAY BIDEN I BELIEVE THAT, BUT THIS IS THE WRONG WAY! THIS ISNT THE RIGHT WAY! WE ALL KNOW IT WONT WORK AND BANNING MORE GUNS MORE TYPES OF AMMO BANNING THIS ATTACHMENT THAT. U CAN BAN WHATEVER U WANT TILL YOUR BLUE IN THE FACE BUT YOU WONT SUCCEED IN STOPING THE MASS MURDERERS. CLEARLY THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER BETTER WAY. EVEN IF U DO BAN ALL OF THEM, THEN WHAT? JUST CREATES A BLACK MARKET FOR THEM. JUST LIKE EVERY LAST OTHER THING THAT AMERICA HAS TRIED TO BAN MOST COMMONLY MARIJUANA AND ALCHOHOL. YA LOOK HOW GOOD THAT WORKED OUT. SO BAD THAT WE HAVE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO REVERSE IT BECAUSE ENFORCING IT COSTS TOO MUCH MONEY, AND GAINS NOTHING. T BETTER NOWBUT THIS IS NOT MARIJUANA OR ALCHOHOL. THIS IS GUNS AND GUNS ARE A VERY BROAD TOPIC THAT IS VERY COMPLICATED, U SEE BECAUSE US GUN OWNERS ARE PROUD PEOPLE. WHY YOUNASK? BECAUSE IF THERES AN ACTIVE SHOOTER SITUATION NEAR ME AND I DONT HAVE A GUN I AM NOT IN A GOOD SITUATION. NOW TAKE THE SAME SITUATION BUT I DO HAVE A GUN, OK NOW I FEEL BETTER.
