What does the NRA have in common with Iran, North Korea and Syria? They were the only entities which do not support the UN resolution on regulating the world sale of guns and munition. The NRA has shrugged the last shroud of human decency, they stand together with dictators, despots and military juntas in the belief that weapons should be freely sold to anyone with the money to purchase them regardless of their intended use.
Terrorists should be allowed to purchase on the open market fully automatic assault rifles, rocket propelled grenades and shoulder fired missiles. And if one of those weapons were to shoot down a US airliner? They'll be the first to call the airlines offering to sell chaffing devices to help combat that problem. The NRA sees the gun as the universal hammer looking for a nail, and what if the nail is another gun? Then the solution is to buy an even bigger gun a'la the Itchy and Scratchy cartoon where each pulls a successively bigger gun until both are holding a gun larger than Earth itself.
Let's make no mistake here, the NRA is only concerned about reaping the biggest profits possible with no regard to the repercussions of flooding unstable regions with a glut of guns and ammo. All of their arguments which play on American's fears of their guns being taken away is simply a ploy to fleece their members of their hard earned money. This money goes towards a singular purpose; providing the manufacturers mountains of cash to sleep on and to line the pockets of NRA executives who receive kickbacks on gun sales from the manufacturers they represent.
