    NRA used to be all about target shooting and gun safety.

    With the increased amount of people carrying guns now you'd think they'd be all over the safety thing but sort of like the GOP they are in denial over anything that shows a down side to their cause. Rather than dealing with it they'd rather just pretend it doesn't exsist.

    •  The NRA is still the No. 1 source for gun safety (0+ / 0-)

      The NRA's Institute for Legislative Action gets all the headlines, good or bad, but the NRA is still the leading source for firearm safety training. They even have a non-for-profit foundation to provides grants for organizations wishing to have firearms instruction, such as the Eddie Eagle program for children.

      Any parent can get a sample of the Eddie Eagle materials to use to instruct their own kids.

      Before anyone gets up on their high horse, I would suggest visiting the Eddie Eagle website and reading the description.

      The NRA is also the leading source for hunter safety training.

        Is that equation too difficult down there in Texas?

      •  You saw this bit, right? (0+ / 0-)
        The Bloomsburg shooting drew a lot of attention, largely because it involved a dealer accidentally Second Amendmenting a prospective customer, but also because the dealer was both: 1) in violation of the show rule prohibiting loaded weapons, and; 2) a NRA-certified firearms instructor.
