the NRA is a lobbying unit for arms and weapons manufacturers who use the 2nd Amendment to sell and proliferate arms and munitions. LaPierre takes home close to a million USD in salary each year!! number of times the 2nd Amendment has been exercised to protect against govt tyranny..ZERO. number of gun deaths since Sandy Hook Elementary: 1478; annual gun deaths in the US: 32,000 and rising. this is the highest than any other OECD country!! furthermore, the US is not the only country which is a democracy, republic, etc. in fact by Nordic standards, the US is a cannibalistic, 3rd world country. a terrorist gets on a plane with a shoe bomb and the US comes close to passing a cavity search, yet 32,000 people die each year from gun violence and we convolute the facts, subscribe to drivel and conspiracies, and propose to do nothing!! you might want to check out some comparative data in the links below before proffering unsubstantiated opinions. "don't blame the tool, blame the criminal"....yet, i ask you in all earnestness, how many children would Adam Lanza have mass murdered/killed if he had a knife or a hammer? if people are still holding onto their 2nd Amendment defense diatribe, go ask David Koresh and the Branch Davidians how they fared in the fight against the US govt. so i say, take up your ak-47's, m-11's, SCR's...i will bring some popcorn and watch you take on Hellsfire missile strikes from Predator drones and see who is obliterated lol. since we are using the 2nd Amendment defense, can i have a Predator drone instead of an ak-47;) lolgunpolicy.orgeconomist.com/multimedia?bclid=1242934274001&bctid=2132320719001youtube.com/watch?v=16K6m3Ua2nw&sns=fb
a friend shared an article that articulates and condenses the best arguments for legalizing all guns. you can read the article defending guns & gun ownership at the following link: (samharris.org/blog/item/the-riddle-of-the-gun). i will attempt to examine and expose the prejudices and successive bias in the opinions offered by Sam Harris.so i read through the article and i disagree with most of the positions that Sam Harris defends. i have had so many debates on this in the recent weeks with many good friends examining both sides of the arguments. first off, there is no argumentative or rational merit in upholding biased opinions proffered by the NRA. The NRA, quite literally, is a gun and firearms lobby that receives and borrows majority of its funding and ideology from arms manufacturers!!the only point where i find myself agreeing with Sam Harris, is on Second Amendment. anyone who uses the Second Amendment argument to defend gun ownership is quite literally lacking some grey matter. anyone claiming that having a well regulated militia to defend against tyrannical powers of the federal govt obviously is under the illusion that a handful of guns will protect their liberties against hellfire missiles from Predator drone strikes or the overwhelming firepower at the discretion of the federal govt. perhaps they could ask David Koresh and the Branch Dravidians!!also if guns alone aided the resolve of denizens to defend liberties against tyrannical governments, then Arab Spring has been a fruitless uprising and did not happen!! i find it truly humorous. as are the arguments postulated by Sam Harris.the mere fact that gun owners r the ones committing these crimes speaks volumes and unravels the rational behind the arguments of allowing more guns!! Nancy Lanza is a case in point. She thought that her guns would keep her safe. But they were instead used by her son to kill her and then 20 schoolchildren and injure 26 victims.for every uninformed opinion out there, you might want to look at the data coming out of police precincts, hospitals, healthcare organizations, global studies, and stats. it behooves me that in an age of information, data, & technology people would choose to support & defend positions not substantiated by research and data, whether it's gun control, climate change, living & quality of life standards, equality, gender roles, healthcare, taxes, role of govt. etc. there is simply too much information and data existing out there that irrational positions, even those fomented by an esteemed neuroscientist as such, seem an entitlement and an exercise in endorsing self-validated ignorance.using his opinions, Sam Harris is purporting to invalidate years of research and data coming out of Harvard Med School, Johns Hopkins, Stanford and other esteemed organizations on gun violence. the best part is that these ideologues try to reduce research, science, logic, statistics, and math by claiming these are "liberal opinions and positions"!!!maybe all of this has to do with the fractured culture, history, and epidemic of guns in America. instead of books, we give our children toy guns n violent video games for Christmas n New Years, n openly champion violence than rational discourse. then we are aghast when as a society we are left to confront events like the ones that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora, Tucson, Covina, Washington D.C., Columbine and scores of others. we live n embrace a culture that glorifies death, murder, and mayhem, self-absorbed, disaffected, apathy where we think it is a violation of our individual rights to provide healthcare for everyone but make it adequately easy for anyone to step into a gun show or store to buy automatic guns!! maybe it also has to do with the desensitization of watching drone strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan killing helpless civilians one minute, play call of duty the next, and then arbitrarily open an M-11 into an unsuspecting crowd!!no one needs a magazine that sprays out 100-500 bullets at the pull of a trigger to hunt game or even shoot down a mass murderer. but then it might have to do more with geography n history, n cojones. i come from a country, India, where Mahatma Gandhi and hundreds of thousands of Indians marched n used non-violent Satyagraha to drive away the British. Americans instead resorted to a bloody rebellion to achieve their independence from the same British!!given the history of America, i am not clamoring for a total ban on gun ownership, but i want a ban on assault weapons, automatics and semi-automatic weapons and for stringent enforcement and permits n stricter rules on violators. the only people who i really deem worthy to carry concealed weapons should be law enforcement.many people will read this and claim that "oh it is different in Switzerland and other countries"...i have lived there for some years and know of their laws...they require their denizens to serve, and be trained for several years to hold a permit, and the ammunitions are kept under lock and key at local arms depots. forget gun licenses or comparing ourselves to the Swiss or Scandinavians (who think America is a 3rd world cannibalistic society), most citizens here can't even properly name what is the capitol of the United States!! furthermore, if guns are involved in any crime, treble sentences are levied in Switzerland.the US has very lax guns laws...you only need to interview successive Mexican Presidents or law enforcement south of the border. they will tell you unequivocally that the Mexican govt. is loosing the war against gangs and mafias because of fully automatic and semi automatic guns coming across the border from the US and the drug trade.the alcohol, tobacco, firearm/defense lobbies are very powerful in the US. i recall the time when Big Tobacco waged a successful campaign against regulation. luckily conscientious insiders, whistle blowers, n information and research from reputable health organizations exposed the conspiracies of Big Tobacco and led to punitive regulations and settlements.stating that there are more deaths from swimming pool drownings, car accidents, cigarette smoking, and cardiovascular diseases is definitely not an argument worthy of any merit, especially from a public health perspective. it would be the moral and rational equivalent of stating "yeah, we have asbestos in this building, but despite the health risks and concerns, let's not do anything about it since it is not the leading cause of death"!!! i hope you can see how irrational and disjointed such a position would be.recently i saw an ad in the newspaper from Academy Sporting Goods store that had an AK-47 for sale for $140!! it gave people the option to have the gun fitted as a semi-automatic or automatic. i find it very troubling and disturbing that in the US an AK-47 costs less than my tennis racket or my golf clubs!!Sources:hsph.harvard.edu/research/hicrc/firearms-research/guns-and-death/index.htmlmotherjones.com/politics/2012/07/mass-shootings-mapjustfacts.com/guncontrol.aspnytimes.com/2013/01/06/sunday-review/more-guns-more-killing.html?hp&_r=0nytimes.com/2012/12/21/opinion/national-rifle-selling-association.html?hpnytimes.com/2013/01/02/opinion/at-the-er-bearing-witness-to-gun-violence.html?hp&_r=0news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/anderson-cooper-reads-sister-victim-letter-intended-obama-151325260.htmlsamharris.org/blog/item/the-riddle-of-the-gun
