Ten Reasons Why You Should not Support the NRA

1. The NRA is a terrorist’s best friend.   Technology is making it increasingly possible to manufacture handguns made primarily of plastic and other non-metal materials which cannot be discovered by metal detectors.

The Brady Law was intended to make it harder for criminals to easily obtain a gun but background checks have had the added effect of leading to…
