Letter: NRA is a shill for gun industryThe National Rifle Association has had a paranoia about infringement on the Second Amendment rights for decades, even though there is no threat to these rights by those favoring common-sense gun controls. Many are gun owners. Yet the NRA keeps trying to indoctrinate millions.
I’m convinced, as many others are, that it’s all about protecting their most important beneficiary, the wealthy billion-dollar gun industry. I think it can be said that the NRA is the waterboy for the gun industry.
Common-sense gun controls will not inhibit law-abiding Americans from buying guns. Common-sense gun laws will be a minor inconvenience for those who want to buy guns if it keeps guns out of the hands of criminals and those who can’t use guns responsibly. Common-sense gun laws are about safety for children and families. Common-sense gun laws are about sensibility.
