The NRA & GOP Are Not Representing Gun Owners

It's not the gun owners: 87% of NRA members want sensible gun control, according to a Gallop poll. The NRA is only speaking on behalf of the gun manufacturers as well as their bloated salaries. LaPierre pulls in $974,000,000 annually and certainly David Keene, the President pulls in a higher amount. It's all about their bloated lobby salaries, and representation of gun shop owners and gun manufacturers. In other words: SELLING MORE GUNS via fear, hate and even racism.The NRA is nothing more than the political arm of Corporate America in lock-step with the Republican Party and the ALEC Corporate Lobby.
