NRA Now Preaching Way Beyond Gun Rights With Right-Wing Talking Points

Wayne LaPierre says he wants to reach people who believe “America is off the rails,” and so the National Rifle Association’s message has gone way beyond gun issues. The gun lobby’s campaign, launched in the last 10 days, uncharacteristically delves into issues far beyond the Second Amendment to explore the IRS scandal, media elitism and [...]

The tragic yet preventable accidental shooting at an Arizona gun ranges had barely made the news when the NRA tweeted the following: This was taken down less than an hour later Mark Follman of Mother Jones managed to get this screen capture of the Tweet before it was deleted a little over an hour after [...]

Less than two days after a 9-year-old girl in Arizona accidentally shot a firearm instructor in the head with an Uzi, the National Rifle Association on Wednesday tweeted a link showing new ways for children to “have fun” at shooting ranges.

Via The Daily Beast: Billionaire Michael Bloomberg already had the gun lobby in his sights.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle is taking umbrage after a National Rifle Association lobbyist recently made remarks comparing a gun-control effort in Washington state to Nazi Germany, according to KOMO News.
