The NRA has done everything in its power to make sure the real truth about guns is hidden from the American people and it is now more corrupt than ever taking the Russian money to try and further corrupt our government.
The real truth about guns is hidden in the crap filled propaganda you push and the massive over use of transference from the violent left.
I know of no police department that gather stats on how many time people use a gun for defensive purposes other then police using their guns in criminal situations.
It's called police reports, and in order for someone to claim a self-defense shooting if someone was shot, the police have to investigate. Not to mention not every case of GDU leads to someone being either shot or killed. My DGU is an example, someone was trying to break into my garage and they thought better of doing so when they found my gun pointing at them through the sliding glass door on the back of the house. I didn't have to shoot him, he ran off, that's usually the case with a vast majority of DGU cases. Why do you think the range of DGU was 2.5 million to 250,000? More fair studies are required, not studies based on simple violence, but overall gun use.
The National Gun Manufacturer Association has one reason and only one reason to exist, to sell more guns.
There is no such gun group. What you might be looking for is the NSSF, National Shooting Sports Foundation, they are the gun manufacture lobby.
There are no moral concerns just profit.
That's where you would be wrong. The moral concerns is the ability of US citizens to protect their lives and property. I find it immoral to think banning guns will keep people safe. You think removing guns will lower crime and that isn't the case. The crime stats don't favor the average American if they have nothing to protect themselves.
Would you say that social security, Medicare and Medicaid are failures?
Yes, in their own original mission statements and purpose. They all suffer from "mission creep" and fraud is rampant in those systems. There are no real checks and balances and the politicians use them as weapons in political battles instead of actually helping people.
Those programs are pure socialism you will find a variation of those programs in every socialist country.
No, they are not pure Socialism but they are now being pushed for those purposes. I don't care what other countries do, we are the USA and have always done things differently, there is a reason we are a world power and the rest aren't. We innovate and find new and better ways. Hell, the SS system is 100 years old and should be completely revamped to match our modern economy, not a time when only 1 person in the house worked.
If the stock market is good enough for the 1% and their money, it should be good enough for me to invest my SS funds as well.
America has a hybrid government made up of both greed-based solutions (capitalist) and social solutions. Ignorant people like to ignore the socialists features of our government.
We don't ignore the "socialist features" of the system, we fight against them and push for reform.
Look around you friend socialism is alive and well all around you. The older people have some dignity do to social security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
It's funny how you think asking for govt handouts is a form of dignity. For those who are able bodied and accept those handouts, isn't dignity, it's laziness. That's part of the problem with socialism, it convinces people they don't have to work or provide for themselves, there is still some sucker who will want to do it for them. Our social safety net should be based on actual need and ability, not wants and demands.
Before social security, notice the word, once a husband died his wife was left to eat out of trash can in your beautiful greed-based society where everything is divided up based on greed.
That just wasn't the case back then, we actually had a much closer society of those willing to help each other, and provide for those who couldn't help themselves. A majority of our programs came out of the depression and should have gone away when we recovered from the Great Depression. The only thing those programs do now is provide ammo for political wars.
Twins are rare would you consider that a birth defect? In effect a mutation of a cell results in two fetuses
Only a fool would ask such a question.
Children are born with a cleft palate is correcting that really any different?
Nothing at all, except we aren't talking about such things or even true physically intersex people. We are talking about people who "self identify" as the opposite sex, people born with normally working bodies who think they were born of the wrong sex and want surgery to "fix" the problem.
Goggle listed the shooting of children in a bed but did not list those both shot with the same bullet.
It more than likely didn't happen the way you remember it did, doesn't stop you from pushing a false narrative.
The National Gun Manufacture Associations want to hide the fact that guns are the number one health hazard in America today and they corrupted the political system to make sure it stays hidden.
As I noted above, there is no such group, you are looking for the NSSF, they are the gun manufactures lobby, the NRA is a citizens rights gun group, making sure people here in the US have Constitutional access to firearms for their use, as the 2nd Amendment states and is the only Amendment which says "shall not be infringed".
Don’t kid yourself Dickey Act was meant to keep the facts hidden. At no time in history has anything like Dickey Act been even attempted it shows rampant corruption of government by big business.
You are the one kidding yourself, the only information that was being hidden was a fair study on guns. Gun violence can still be studied but those studies can't be used to change our Constitution. The Constitution was put in place to limit the Federal Govt, not limit the citizens.
The only study that would help the gun lobby is one that showed nobody was shot or injured by a gun in America and that will never happen.
Why do you never mention or even read the 2013 CDC study, why do no leftists or media people reference the study? They are scared of the truth and will only report on bias studies that back their anti-gun agenda.
