Five Stupid Things About the NRA 
Wednesday, April 9th, 2014 | 08:36 pm (UTC) - Guns and the NRA
1) I am sad that can't comment on youtube..

2) I am very, very glad you included #5

I am a very liberal gun owner, and I do prefer that the rights to own firearms should be defended. That said, I welcome discussion on where the line should be drawn. I would like more safety measure, legal enacted. But, I also want to protect that right, and am concerned that limits might erode that right, out of fear, for the rest of us. It's not without precedent that fear of gun violence, (in this case) leads to restrictions of right that might be more severe that we really want.

I personally, find this issue more complex tahn either side admnits, but I feel the same about a lot of other issues, too, but, this is perhaps the only case I can thbink of where I end up on the Conservative side f the fence.

So, I find myself supporting the NRA< even tho the are far more (to) extreme for me. I feel that the popular backlash migght be further from my choice thant he NRA, which is sad. I wish that we could agree to meet in the middle, but, that seems unlikely, so I feel I have to align with an extreme point on one side, or on the other..

I will admit, that the non-NRA side is much less extreme. But, in my opinion, they, too, often go too far. I hate that I can't easily take a mid ground position and have someone represent me.
