The NRA's rhetoric about jackbooted federal thugs coming to enforce the gun laws helped inspire, frankly, lunatics like Timothy McVeigh - which is why President George Herbert Walker Bush resigned his membership in the NRA. The NRA's leadership is, in fact, a clear and present danger to the safety of the rest of us in the United States.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) is moving its convention of lethal weapons from Columbus, Ohio because the city’s elected council outlawed the sale or possession of semiautomatic rifles with pistol grips and detachable magazines.
The NRA, which probably at one time was a worthwhile organization teaching people to use guns for hunting safely. Now seems to me to have transmogrified into some sort of organization for extremists and mercenaries, otherwise why do you need semiautomatic rifles for hunting or protection.
Ideally every city in every county throughout the United States should ban the above mentioned weapons and others as well. Force the NRA to have secret meetings. This organization has taken the Second Amendment and twisted its meaning The Second Amendment states: "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." The NRA ignores the first, crucial, half of the Second Amendment - the words referring to a "well-regulated militia."
When the U.S. Constitution was adopted, each of the states had its own "militia" - a military force composed of ordinary citizens serving as part-time soldiers. Now, the NRA wants every nut job to have access to weapons, and unfortunately too many politicians cave in to this crazed cult of gun worshipers.
