I am actually shocked as to how many sheep there are today.  It was attacking 'bump stocks' probably by people who had no idea of a 'bump stock'  Now it is the AR by people who probably could not tell an AR from a SR or sky hook.  Everything and anything to keep the focus off of what is the real issue.  WE DO NOT HAVE A GUN PROBLEM.  WE HAVE A PEOPLE PROBLEM.  Now self righteous companies in the name of greed is separating themselves from the NRA.  That makes as much sense as to separate yourself from the car companies because a terrorist drove a truck into a group of innocent people.  The Democrat will not stop until they have disarmed the innocent population.   This is not to be a surprise.  It has been their goal to do so for many years.  The democrat party is NOT the party of your grandfather.  It is a party which has been taken over by every Left wing ideology from Marxism and Communism, anything related to Socialism and do keep in mind that the Nazi party was the German Nationalism SOCIALIST party.  It does not take a political scholar to have a real good idea what will happen to the average citizen should they be able to complete their agenda.  It takes just a brief look at the way the recent Democrats have treated the military to know what they will do to the unarmed populous.  The last fiasco in office had all but sold us out to the highest Muslim bidder.  George Washington knew what he was talking about when he told people they must be armed and prepared.  Keep in mind the musket was that military rifle of the day.

LGD & Bohica, can only give ya 1+, otherwise would be more.  

All the wussies distancing themselves from NRA. I'd like to distance myself from them. 

So agree, a people, morality problem. If guns are so terrible, why does Hollywood makes its biggest bucks on guns, terror, all sorts of violence that I've never thought of or considered. Yet the biggest critic of guns, they're all morons and hypocrites.
