Why is the NRA lying about its role in preventing background checks for years as of 12/18/2018 (even to their members)? Because even their members might suddenly realize that the NRA is functioning like a terrorist organization? Even members of the NRA want background checks.
Introduction:" The right to drive a car is not guaranteed in the Constitution but everyone now expects to have the right to drive the car (unless blind or disabled). Its a good right. It adds to freedom. And to make this freedom safe for everyone there are drivers tests, eye tests, and drivers licenses with automatic renewals after a number of years. In other words, the responsibility of driving a machine that can be used to run over people (intentionally or accidentally) comes with oversight and accountability within the framework of a free society with rule of law. This post focuses on just ONE of the laws necessary for a person to be given the responsibility of a gun, background checks.
Even the members of the NRA want more gun control measures. Cenk Uygur and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
