      violently against controlling those weapons scare me. Not the NRA.

      The 'other' people voting scares the NRA. Not me.

      Why is it easier to buy a gun than it is to register to vote in most states?

        unfortunately is dominated by extremists, who whip there membership up into a frenzy with images of government agents coming to confiscate their guns.

        •  Actually they attract people who are suffering (0+ / 0-)

          a documented mental disorder. Catastrophizing

          This mental disorder is not particularly dangerous, unless the sufferer is in denial and carrying a gun. Then the NRA blames all the gun problems on mental disorders, while attracting and scaring the crap out of people with this treatable and relatively benign mental disorder in order to sell guns. Leaving them and all around them open to horror of gun violence.

          It is so vicious.

          Why is it easier to buy a gun than it is to register to vote in most states?
