“The NRA is a populist lobby,” he says. “They get support when people are mad and stirred up. They want the attention. They’re not interested in fixing things. They want to stir things up, and the more they stir things up, the more members they get and the more money they make. What do they gain by compromising? Nothing.”
Once upon a time I was an NRA member (when I first got my concealed carry permit). I realized quickly those people are insane and I want nothing to do with them - if someone got a speeding ticket they'd scream that somehow that meant the government was trying to take their guns away.
