    They won't cave like Boehner. Boehner thinks that by the time election day comes around his constituents will have forgotten all about how he sold them up the river. The NRA can be shut down immediately if they don't do the bidding of their members. I can't wait until Friday. There will be a lot of upset liberals on that day.

    @OpEn_MiNdEd If I regulate what you can say is that a breach of the 1st Amendment?

    I guess your name does not represent how you are.

    @WilliamWallace

    your right to free speech is regulated. the first amendment does not give you the right to say anything and everything and the second amendment does not give you the right to own rocket launchers and handgrenades. all right s are regulated.

    Shows that some organization still have respect and not politicize something like this. NRA has my full support.

    Agreed. I think rather than hiding this may be an opportunity for the NRA to lead the discussion rather than being the token bad guys in this miserable situation. It's risky, though - the NRA is one poor word choice away from near-universal condemnation.

    @DARSB The NRA is like any other organization,it has its good and bad points, the trick is to stand your ground without loosing it.

    @woodtick57 landscape can change so long as your foundation is soild and the NRA foundation is very solid as is the 2nd amendment.

    I would like the NRA to push for more hunter's safety and gun owner's courses. I feel that while there are several things that contributed to this horrific event, the NRA as an organization, had little to do with a tragedy caused by an stable individual and his mother who had guns that were legally owned and registered. I also think placing blame on any person or organization that anyone can conceive of is a product of our litigious society. People need to accept personal responsibility and assign blame where it belongs.

    yes. the hunter safety thing is sorely needed. the hunters i see daily are very poorly trained in safety, or at least they do not follow the training they had.

    @woodtick57 Yeah, I fear for the lives of my son (who's taken it twice) and family every dear season. I wish you had to show proof before you got a license to hunt. I am ready to hear it for my next statement too...I think a gun safety/training should be required before you purchase a handgun!

    I would want to hear them say that they will fight to uphold the meaning and intent of the Second Amendment. Jefferson, Adams, Madison and the other founding fatherss did not create the Second Amendment to insure that the citizens can hunt and plink. They created the Amendment as another Check & Balance to the power, or abuse of power, by the federal government.

    Guns don't kill people; people kill people. That man who committed the massacre in CT was mentally unstable. His own mother went to a social worker about her fears and concerns of his violent outbreaks and how unpredictable and unstoppable they were. The social worker told her that there was nothing that could be done until he committed a crime. I guess he did that.

    The ONLY way to effectively oppose mass-murderers (since they always disobey ALL laws) is for ALL good, capable, peaceable, law-abiding, citizens to endeavor to diligently carry arms whenever (and wherever) prudent. Those who would seek to disarm the innocent (law-abiding) are the absolute worst kind of despicable.

    Not a damn thing. this wasnt their fault. they dont make guns, they didnt put a rifle in this guys hands and tell him to kill kids. i know you leftists think that is what happens but it truly doesnt. blame obummer for not getting the economy going after 4 years to the point where we have more policing. blame your liberal "thats profiling" crap, if someone would have pointed him out this could be stopped.

    "Upon further review of the Second Amendment, we now realize that most, if not all, of our members are NOT members of a well-regulated militia and are NOT necessary for the defense of a free state."

    Live delegates being necessary to the integrity of the Democratic Party, the right of Democrats to breathe shall not be infringed.

    As you can plainly see, ALL Democrats have ALWAYS had the inalienable right to breathe REGARDLESS of whether they are serving as a delegate or not. And so it is with the peoples inalienable right to bear arms. Those who assert otherwise are demonstrably irrational.

    Anything besides listening to Obama suggest that he is such a great moral leader. He is nothing more than a liar. What about the 3K unborn that die everyday and he never mentions that because why? He could care less.

    They should show sympathyfor what happened. They should say killers will kill. Weather it be a knife, stick, rock, or run people over in a car. They should defend the second amendment, by saying it defends all the other amendments.(and it does).

    I like to hear them announce the development of a new firearm that will not fire in the hands of a freaking lunatic who should have been institutionalized years before a mass shooting...

    I would like to hear people be more concerned with the rights of children to live (after they are out of the womb and actually are children) and a little less about the right to bare arms which is guaranteed but not without restriction.

    @vigilant
    Actually your guns are more likely to kill your child then anyone else's.
    Now that we got that out of the way, try listening. I don't care if you have guns. My problem is the psychos who have things like AKs and high capacity clips, and if you have those you are a psycho. Those are not for defense they are for war and killing many people at once. Those people are a danger to children and everyone else.
    When some people brought up the idea of eliminating what are essentially small scale WMDs the response is to not even discuss it, but rather to whine about your rights. Every "right" has restrictions.
    Yeah, you're real pro life until the kid comes out of the womb. Then you would rather them be shot en masse on a semi-regular basis (something like 31 school shootings since Columbine 13 years ago) then have further restrictions on your precious guns. Really sad.

    Did you notice how in Obama's speech he kept touching his finger below his eye. I watched very closely. That man was not crying. There was no water coming from his eyes. Yet I couldn't believe some left wing tv show said he was crying. Lie after lie after lie it never stops.

    What would I like to hear from the NRA on Friday? Nothing. The NRA and their policies and lobbyists are only a small part of the problem. The NRA has nothing to do with the underlying mental health issues.

    The NRA isn't any part of the problem, as guns aren't the problem. The media teaching the mentally ill that if they kill a bunch of innocent people, they will be famous.

    @FollowTheMoney - Can;t blame the media entirely. We, the American Public, have developed an appetite for the sensational, the ugly, the horrible and the bloody. If we want the media to stop showing us these things, we must first stop watching.

    @Denizen_Kate I'm all for not watching the media. There's that pesky 1st amendment though. We could also say that the media should be restricted to the same devices used to communicate in 1776. After all, many think we should be restricted to the guns of 1776.....sorry for getting off on a side note like that. Some folks are simply glued to violence on tv, on the internet, by video games and worst of all in real life. One poster on here wanted to change our culture and I suggested starting with Hollywood and game producers. This poster thought I was crazy. After all, where are these kids learning that it's ok to kill people? It isn't the NRA. We live in a society now where many parents just don't care. They aren't there for their kids and do little besides meeting their basic needs. Many don't get their basic needs met. But it's simply easier to bash the NRA then to discuss the issue comprehensively.

    @Medicinebow - Yes, but to change what the media shows us, we must stop watching the sensational, demand the reasonable, and let their ratings show them the way. Not gonna happen, but a girl can dream. The only other way to curb the media's enthusiasm for spewing unverified trash at us is to have them all belong to a professional organization such as The Socieity of Professional Jouralists - http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp . Someone else on this site was kind enough to share that link a few days ago. If the public demands that news media abide by the SPJ's ethics code, else we'll stop watching,.... well, maybe we could get some improvement. Like I said, a girl can dream ...
