What and your other liberal radical friends should move out west to callyforny where the rest of your weirdo lefties have same opinions. You're in WV and no clown like Obama or Manchin is going to take our guns away here. Get over it. Keep dreaming about your world full of other nutballs like yourselves but it's just another fantasy of the left lunatics.

The NRA does get money from manufactures. Millions of dollars. Ruger announced in 2012 that they would donate $1 per firearm sold to the lobbying branch of the NRA (NRA-ILA) and raised $1.25 million. Smith and Wesson and Beretta have donated millions also but the didn't tie the money to sales numbers.

Banning a type of firearm is not the same thing as banning firearms. If a ban of weapons like an AR-15 is passed (highly unlikely) they would just fall under the licensing requirements that currently apply to full auto.

What might pass is a law to require background checks for all sales of firearms with an exception for transfers such as father to son. No big deal.

Clueless liberals who love posting gun owners names/addresses in newspapers suddenly don't like the idea of putting signs in their own neighborhoods informing the public that their neighborhood is a "gun-free" zone. WHy is that liberals? Afraid of something besides law abiding gun owners? LOL. Liberalism is a brain malfunctioning disease. It causes folks to stop thinking or using common sense thus brain cells die a slow death by misuse or lack of use. Hypocrites on the left become more and more clear day by day. How hilarious these deceivers are to hear and watch. It's like past 5 years we've been watching a very bad cartoon with all the remarkably ignorant lefties falling over themselves to create a 'utopia' where they actually think they can have everything and won't end up having to pay for it all. Welcome to Obama's next agenda; HUMONGOUS Quadruple Taxation. LOL. They are about to 'feel' what socialism is. Wake up call is too late for you unsuspecting unthinking deceived

What are you ranting about? No one is talking about banning firearms and what does Fast and Furious have to do with reasonable regulations? There are plenty of weapons that aren't legal to own without special licenses and we haven't been taken over by Communists yet. Lighten up, background checks at gun shows won't end up with camps.

PureNonsense does more to convince me of the need to have tighter regulation of firearms than any Liberal could. I like to shoot and AR-15s are big fun. Still, it is obvious that many people that can currently own these weapons aren't sane enough to have them. You just have to listen to the idiots that think that reasonable regulations are a danger to their civil rights to know that it is time to change the status quo.

Typical response from purebull, PURE B.S.! You claim to be smart,at least you think so, yet you cant even read a poll, any poll, all the polls say the same thing, 86% of current NRA members support an assault weapons ban, and you are the only bald-faced liar I know, I too have been an NRA member most of my life and I support the assault weapons ban, closing the "gun show' loophole and strengthening the universal background check. anyone who hunts with an assault weapon is a stupid ******* anyway, and wouldn't count in an intelligent, balanced disscussion, because they would fail a mental hygeine check and probably would fail a criminal check as well. you are a fear mongerer and keep spouting the same lies as the rest of the right-wing nuts. they dont want to take all guns away, just the useless, man killer ones. why is that so hard to understand? Do you know what 20 bullet-riddled first graders must have looked like? How could you be so blind?
