    comment that Jay replied to...I was providing a reason why the NRA would not want to stop second-hand sales.

    never said the NRA was involved in a criminal conspiracy...just like the Chamber of Commerce does...they are representing their clients well...gun and ammo manufacturers...my drifting into marketing...is to show the point that they manipulate people into believing this is about freedom...as the CoC is looking out for workers' jobs...Chevron wants to save the planet...it's about making money...that is their job.

    if you wish to believe the NRA fights b/c's and registries because of the 2a or fear of confiscation...go ahead...I believe they are profit driven...these rules would dry up a market that they don't want to lose.

    why do you think the NRA fought so hard against the UN's small arms treaty..??..was it for your 2a rights..??..no..the treaty had no bearing on sales inside one's country...they want American gun manufacturers to be able to sale to rebels in other countries...money..!!..do you support the lies they pumped out about the treaty..??

    not enough vote in the senate..??..why..??..pressure from the NRA...what is the NRA's motive..??..money...it's always about the money.

    nothing dishonest in the diary...or my comments...doesn't need to be personal...they have their goals...I have mine.

    I will admit...I find the NRA's leaders to be disgusting people...as are Chevron's...the Koch Bros...etc...but they are masterful business people.

      My comments about falsehoods in the diary were not aimed at you -- they were aimed at falsehoods in the diary, as I directly pointed out.

      I responded to Jay's statement, not yours.  When asked about falsehoods in the diary itself, I provided them -- still, making no comment directly regarding your statements at all.

      Your comment, in response to mine, appeared as though you were trying to respond to those points I made -- that is how I responded.  In other words, you seem to think that my comments were directed to you.  They were not.

      My apologies for mis-reading your comments, as you clearly mis-read mine.

      I provided the exact quotes I was responding to, you apparently saw them as directed at your statements.  They were not.

      Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?
