    “The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations,” said Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s CEO, and Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, in a joint statement.

    Can you not read or something? There isn't even the faintest suggestion that they would support a ban.

    Also, are you guys and your NRA boogeyman serious? The NRA is an advocacy group, not a regulatory body. Responsible gun ownership is not among their concerns. Their only concern is that people buy guns and lots of them. They have no government power beyond the usual lobbying tactics.

    Are you suggesting that lobby groups don't have power? That's pretty much the only reason there are lobby groups, is because they do exert power and influence over Senators, by stirring up fear amongst the population for whatever way they want votes to go towards their agenda.

    The NRA will actively campaign and spread propaganda that this bill is a ban on guns, not accessories, and people will believe them because they're stupid... and whine to their senator would then vote against it... blah blah blah.

    I'm fully aware the NRA is not a regulatory body, but their money talks.

    I'm well aware. Where did I imply otherwise??

    The NRA is a powerful lobbying group that also has plenty of influence on how people vote. They have political power, but of course they are not elected legislators.

    Have no idea how you keep comprehending something in what I write that isn't there. I understand you are having some issues, so its ok.

    Boxy was clearly calling you out for once again taking a news article and twisting it into something it's not for shock value.
    They never once said they'd support a ban, nor did they imply it.
    They said they'd support some sort of regulation.

    Yeah, I guess I'm just misinterpreting this.

    No, I'm aware money talks. However, getting mad at the NRA is the wrong direction to take since their interests do not, in any way, line up with anything related to gun control. The people to go after are those who are under the influence of the NRA because they have an active interest in being re-elected

    100% agree in theory, but it's probably long past that point of no return.

    And I don't get mad at the NRA for advocating gun ownership, that's what they are supposed to do and they are within their rights to do so. When they advocate against things that have nothing to do with gun ownership, then I feel like they should be called out.

    On another note, I did like that Trump said the White House was going to be saying Merry Christmas again.

    That particular brand of perpetual outrage is beyond tiresome.

    So North Korea apparently is now saying no discussion or negotiation until it is capable of hitting US East coast with a nuke. I have a hard time believing the US will wait that long, especially if no dialog is happening.
