The Second Amendment is used by the NRA to promote gun manufacturers. The NRA gets most of its support
from gun manufacturers.They use the second amendment as a ploy to get the gun owners to buy more guns. Many of these people are very gullible and they actually believe that Obama will take their guns. As long as the NRA can continue to brainwash many gun owners, more guns will be manufactured and sold. The NRA is a sick lobby that plays on the fears of many unsophisticated gun owners.
The second amendment is a constitutional right just like the first etc... Many states are chipping away at this right and the govt , not the NRA, is prompting citizens to exercise their right before it becomes more restrictive..anyone who trusts a govt that lies as much as this one is a fool. Look how the Feds let us all know the marathon bombers didn't have gun permits.. Is that really a surprise.? Would permits have stopped these monsters? How about the charge of using weapons of mass destruction they tacked on! Keep the sheep frightened ! We, the govt will protect you....what a joke... When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.......
You have got to be kidding. That's like saying that Bush promoted terrorism by attacking Agghanistan and Iraq. Most of the feeding frenzy of gun and ammunition purchasing is by uneducated whites who never met a conspiracy theory they didn't love. And these poor saps are an easy target for the gun manufactureres lobby, the NRA.
