I thought that some of our senior citizen members might be interested in the AARP's official position on gun control.
Here it is:
AARP believes in the Constitutional right to bear arms. But to make the nation safer, we must do what we can to keep guns out of hands of children and criminals. AARP supported the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which went into law in 1994 with bi-partisan support, but was allowed to expire this year.
AARP supports measures to eliminate firearm possession by juveniles, convicted domestic abusers and those under domestic violence restraining orders.
How can you believe in the right to bear arms and support the Brady Bunch at the same time? Talk about a contradiction! :confused:
I'm not an AARP member and have no intentions of ever being one. I get unsolicited mailings from them all the time, so I recently sent them a letter asking them to remove my name from their mailing list.
