Yeah...Facebook news is all stupid memes that may or may not be factual.

Thankfully there's enough gun supporters it was pretty easy to find the truth.

FB is the Photoshop of news.

I just emailed 11 companies. Some to complain about them dropping their sponsorship of NRA, but some of my emails were to current NRA sponsors thanking them for their sponsorship and noting that I expect them to maintain their sponsorship (these companies are no doubt hearing from the other side). As a Life Member, my next step is to try to get non members signed up for NRA.

The democrats have thrown away their old base of working class whites, who were pro-gun, in favor of anti-gun fanatics, minorities, LBGTQs, America haters, illegal immigrants, welfare recipients, food stamp recipients and socialists. The democrats are not the same party they used to be.

Well said. Today's democrats are flat out socialists.

They murdered all those school children and concert goers. Don't you read or watch the liberal news?

You can't blame the FBI for dropping the ball after receiving numerous tips about the nutjob threatening to shoot up the school. You can't blame the chicken deputy who hit behind a car as the shooting unfolded. You can't blame the other 2 sheriff dept deputies who were there and failed to do anything to engage the shooter. Therefore, it HAD to be the evil NRA.

It will be the local laws that will undermine the federal laws over time, they always do. Local municipalities can and probably will write more restrictive laws than the federal government will, maybe thousands of them. Many will go to the supreme court and even if the court is conservative it only takes one case in the English Tort law system like we have to change the landscape overnight. If we had a Roman type legal system that would not be the case.
A lot will depend upon how big of an impact the March 24th event will be and have on companies. We have many companies that are driving our food production and distribution system so might they drive other aspects of our lives. Capitalism may work better than we like some times.

I'm no longer supporting the NRA either. The organization that was once about shooting and gun safety is now taken over by fanatics who will support anyone, even a Trump, who mouths the Second Amendment. When my membership lapses the end of this year, I'm gone.
