Hey folks. The NRA puts a safety warning in their handbook, and the organization did, in fact, begin as a group to promote safety and sportsmanship. Its members continue those traditions.
Nowadays, though, much of their money goes to campaign donations and lobbying. NRA leadership has dedicated itself to promoting gun sales above all other considerations, opposing even the most reasonable restrictions on sales.
Guns for kids? Guns for the mentally unstable? Guns for violent offenders? All good with the NRA.
Be well, be careful. Thanks.
