    serious national organization for gun owners that supports 2nd amendment and gun ownership but doesn't oppose common sense regulation and isn't a front for the manufacturers and dealers.
    I think it could peel away a large swath of the NRA's support.

    You can't make this stuff up.

      There won't ever be any reasonable discussion about gun rights with gun owners so long as the self-appointed spokesorganization for gun owners is the NRA. They are a marketing tool for the weapons industry. They will never engage in legitimate debate because they don't care about any issue but profits for the weapons industry. The best thing responsible gun owners who want an even handed debate can do is to find another organization. One that represents their true interests.

      this link to a competing, more liberal organization was posted here.  Maybe this group is worth supporting.
