    I never imagined a basic pistol course certification would be held up with the bloody shirts:

    Every single one of us in The Ft Leavenworth Boy Scouts had NRA certificates from the marksmanship program. I still have mine, and the medals.

    There are pedophiles in the Vatican. There are predators in the Salvation Army. There are drug addicts in the DEA. Me, I'm a bourbon drinking Southern Baptist. Yet, just because I get an occasional haircut, that DOESN'T mean I'm a racist skinhead. Let's hold the individual responsible for their actions & steer clear of their "associations".

    if the state police & the news people could not link something to the NRA they would have invented a 'possibality'

    when a car plows into a crowd would they mention AAA cause the driver got his lessons there?

    Those that live to dance on the graves of innocents will grasp at any straw to blame law abiding gun owners.

    Sadly though I have seen post after post here and elsewhere about how mass murderers or their parents have been Democrats. Can anybody be surprised that the antigunners would jump on what they perceive as an opportunity to link the NRA with mass murder. Doesn't make it right just makes it predictable.

    "Ties" to the NRA.

    An interesting characterization that is sadly lost on most of those unwittingly indoctrinated.

    As someone elese posted to get a permit for a gun in CT you need a gun training certificated so about any person who owns a gun ( not sure if only for handguns or long guns ) in CT will have someone like that

    Well, from a political point-of-view, I would rather "have ties" to the NRA than to the...AARP.

    It is all about using something to "prove" a point and further an agenda. People who try to tie the nut case to any firearms group are just using anything they can to blame the murderous rampage on firearms ownership and not being mentally ill.

    Anti gun propaganda proponents will stoop to any level just to prove themselves right. The tragedy is that many people will believe it and that makes one more victory in the war of disarmament.

    Adam Lanza could have had anything in his possession, including something from the NRA, but that does not nor did make them responsible for what Lanza did. Lanza was responsible for what he did, he and he alone. We need to have an affective countermeasure to such things or we could wake up one day and no longer have any rights, let alone the one to keep and bear arms.
