Sen Schumer: NRA is a Fringe Group Doesn't Represent Average Gun Owners
Note the unemployed Estwing framing hammer made in Rockford, Illinois.

#10  What was one of the first things Mugabe did in Zimbabwe?

Disarm the farmers and general populace. And, no, there wern't murders everywhere, the war was over. It just makes a whole load of sense to disarm your opposition and then go and kill them...

#8  The demonization of gun owners as the 'Other' continues...

#7  R.J., I'll bet the thinking "average gun owner" does think of Chuckie, only as a way to demonstrate his second amendment right.

#6  Whenever I think average gun owner, I think Chuck Schumer.

#5  Because Bostonians were shot down in the streets, farmers with toe to toe with the two most professional armies of the day, lost toes at Valley Forge, and stormed Yorktown to preserve their right to squirrel hunting, right Mr Shumer? We know your opinion about the 2nd being obsolete, pehaps we could also hear your opinion about how when the 1st was written there is no way the founding fathers could predict mp3 and 3-d surround sound movies? Anything else need tossed out, perhaps search and seizure?

#4  What do you suppose the number of pro-2nd people is who, for whatever reason, are like minded but not official NRA members. They must know that if somebody is going to eff with an open, safe, responsible neighbor they will eff with anyone.

No, it is the Entertainment Industry which promotes guns as entertainment, most often in a completely irresponsible and unrealistic way. Bobby c said it was too much John Wayne and Howdy Doody or something, saying he was quoting the opinionist who shall not be named following the Belcher murder/sui. That guy was talking the city gangsta culture; so any opinions of how the gangsta' rap & video culture handles its relationship with guns? Hollywood at least sets up a scenario where a gun is involved, howz about the performance artists who name themselves after guns and talk about murdering people for walking down the wrong street. Sounds pretty fringe to me.

Oh, and I must have missed bobby c's halftime opinion about the Pat's Talib. Look it up, he was arrested for brandishing and threatening to use a handgun on his sister's boyfriend. How is that different than Belcher other than not being piss drunk and stoned enough to pull the trigger? (Belcher toxicology was BAL .17 at time of death, nevermind what it had peaked at, also missing from the report was the statement "and no other narcotics", telling me he was likely sniffing something too. But the NRA, theyz dangerous).

Some people can smell afternoon tornadoes early in the morning. They did their shopping the second week of November. What this recent activity is, are the people who still had the nah they wouldn't..until bobby c telegraphed the punch. Democrats didn't have a problem with the fringe occupy groups, if fact I would like to know the connection of that Denver bunghole to the Occupy Denver dopers.

Think about this. At nearly a moments notice all these purchases ran inventory out. That is quite a bit of money there. You know what that means, that means those people had to have money available - they are the productive members of this society as well.

#3  So, it's OK to screw with the facts to get your point across.


Well Ummm, we'll do it anyway, we won't get caught, if anybody complains, we'll just SCREAM "CHILD KILLER".

#2  Who are the unhinged to make judgements about who lies out on the fringe? This guy has been looking in the mirror too much.

The NRA is composed of citizens both men and women, voters, Schumer's constituents, military personnel who have served our country, governors, Congressmen and women, police officers, disabled shooters as well as world-class competitive shooters, hunters, people who support the firearms industry. So where does Chuckie get off being so arrogant.

#1  ..and it can equally be said that the Senate is composed of a fringe group that doesn't represent the average citizen either.
