The NRA is known for it's outrageous claims and misguidance, but there are some lies so bad they stand above the rest. Which one do you think is the worst of the worst?

For me, it's the NRA's claim that the best thing to do after a mass tragedy such as Sandy Hook or Orlando is to sit on our butts and do nothing but pray. No, we can stop the problem of gun violence in this country with sensible legislation, but the NRA is so afraid of losing profit from declining gun sales that they'd rather see 30 kindergarteners killed verses a law passed.

What is the most moronic poll you have started about the NRA

you should be careful whining about NRA lies when the entire Bannerrhoid movement is based on lies that their desired laws are motivated by a deserve to control criminals

Your hyperbolic and dishonest attacks on the NRA prove that your support of gun control is based on a pathological hatred of the NRA

What's the worst lie told about the NRA? Well, that it isn't a group made up of honest, Constitution loving Americans.

When the NRA is attacked, then 4.5 million Americans are being attacked. Not some evil three letter gun devil.

Think about that.

What is your biggest lie

ou need guns for self defense (gun owners are more likely to die violently)--that is a lie because it doesn't distinguish between legal owners of firearms and criminals



The second amendment covers person guns ( not the national guad) That is a lie because the right recognizes a natural right and that natural right predates the existence of the national guard. The national guard did not even exist in 1791 so you flunk history as well as Honesty


More guns=safety (The states w. more guns have high gun deaths)-Refute John Lott if you can. You are lying


Obama wants to confiscate your guns (He doesn't) Obama couldn't because he didn't have the power nor the votes. Yet Obama constantly Jizzes in his pants over Australian and British Gun laws. So you are lying again.



Assault rifles are good for hunting (They're designed solely to kill people) That is lie, Real assault rifles are made for military use and that includes

a) inflicting casualties

b) suppressing enemy movement

c) Break contact with the enemy

So you are lying again



The AR15 is not an assault rifle (It is) This is proof you are both lying and clueless. the AR 15 is not select fire and thus is not an assault rifle


We can't do anything to stop gun violence-punishing criminals might. letting more people be armed will to.

SO you are many times a liar. I don't know which one if the worst though

So many lies. The National Guard has been around since 1636.

More guns equals more gun violence. John Lott has been debunked numerous times.

I am an Army veteran. I know what an assault rifle is, and what it is designed for. Stop trying to twist the definition to your advantage.

I feel like you were most likely put in the kitchen if you actually were in the army.

You are lying. I don't care if you are an army veteran, I was a federal prosecutor whose expertise included federal gun laws. The AR 15 is not select fire so you are are LYING. The national guard was not created until 1903 nationally. You are confusing a state militia with a body that can be federalized by the order of the president. You are thus LYING again. Lott has not been debunked. You lied again

My nephew, a Green Beret Major, calls them "trade school enlistments".

Nope, I was a 12B Combat Engineer. Basically Infantry, but the difference is that we also clear minefields, do route clearance so that the rest of the Army can travel safely, and love to blow stuff up

I'm starting to think a family member served, not this guy. I hate going there, I REALLY do however... He called his term of service his
"Contract". My wife's dad is a retired Army Lt. Col and she kinda shook her head at that turn of phrase.

I guess they didn't tell you that the rifle you were supposed to qualify with was an M16 or an M4, not an AR 15.

Your attempt at using (what you think is) ebonics is extremely insulting and racist towards people of color

Your use of people of color as props for your maligning of superior posters is insulting and racist.

Give it up, there's nothing racist with her comment. playing the race card is lame. you trying to use it when there isn't even a hint of racism is pathetic

I qualified with an M4. The AR15 is literally an M4 without burst fire. All the other features designed to kill large numbers of people, such as the buffer tube, the pistol grip, the muzzle brake, the armor piercing 5.56 NATO round, are still there.

It wasn't written in his "Contract" that way see.

ever see the movie UNDER SIEGE, where Tommy Lee Jones and some mercenaries hijack the Battleship Missouri and SEAL Steven Seagal, a playboy bunny and some enlisted sailors fight the hijackers? There is this one kid who claims he joined to pay for college and the Bunny had to show him how to operate the submachine gun Seagal had handed him

ITS NOT JUST A JOB, its an ADVENTURE!
