    Bullets and Rifles and Guns! OH MY!!

    I have two 15 month old grandchildren, so for me, there's an urgency to this.

    Also, I'm well aware of the reasons for gun ownership, however, when they're laying all over the place as is now the case, due to marketing fear by the NRA, it's out of control, which is being proven on an almost daily basis now.
    I haven't seen any fear commercials by the NRA. I don't recall ever having seen any ads by the NRA.

    Thank you for starting a new thread on this, I really hate seeing this kind of discussion in a thread started to mourn the loss of shooting victims.

    Slogans. The NRA markets slogans. They do it on billboards, bumper stickers and they market fear to the readers of their magazine, emails and newsletters.

    Remember this slogan: "I'll give up my gun when they they pry my cold dead hands from around it"

    Know that one?

    How about this one: "guns don't kill people, people kill people"

    You don't recognize the fear of other people in that second one?

    Here's a clip from a FOX news cast.

    You might want to take a second look at that thread. What it was was people sharing information as it came out. Mourning loss could also be a part of the thread, but it sure doesn't look like it was created strictly for mourning. In fact it was the forum owner who made the first comment that was overtly political in nature.

    That's a convention, not an ad campaign, and it didn't have a slogan. You have a wild imagination when your hate is sparked.

    While in Hawaii recently - people are handing out gun propaganda on every street you walked.
    Promoting gun use - shooting ranges - differents guns available.

    surprising actually - Acc - this was Oct. 2012

    I tried not-so-subtle hints, but Ahso's pretty thick when he sees a chance to vent his hatred..

    And here I took it that you wanted to have an honest conversation. I guess I should have known better.

    So since this thread is about your expertise of me, explain the hate part to me, would you?

    I figured we'd start there. You object? Or is it that you can't defend it? The latter I suspect.

    It's a conversation about an NRA billboard and the message it sends. Too heavy?
