  •  Because they'll never do it. Just like Walmart (1+ / 0-)

    will never pay the majority of their workers a living wage.

    Why should we let the NRA off of the hook by taking responsibility for what they claim is one of their primary objectives in their mission statement
    This is what a civil society is all about.  A strong government that fights against something that kills people.

    The NRA and what it stands for now needs to be destroyed as an entity.  Begging them to "do something" ain't the way to go. They're too far gone and serve no purpose in a civil society.  

    •  The NRA is a membership organization. (1+ / 0-)

      Their strength is in their membership numbers.  They are the AARP of guns.  If you want to diminish their power, you get their membership to either revolt or move elsewhere.  Much easier than a WalMart boycott.

      And I am NOT "begging" them to do anything.  I am CHALLENGING them to fulfill their mission statement or get lost.  I refuse to clean up their sordid mess.

      A tax funded PSA should say, "Don't buy a gun unless you are willing to do x, y and z"

      An NRA funded PSA would address only "x, y and z".
