The population of the United States is three hundred twenty seven million.
The membership of the NRA is five million. That’s peanuts.
One sixty-fifth of the population of the United States–five million out of three hundred twenty seven million–is controlling the legislation around guns.
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.”
What part of “well regulated militia” includes lone teenage boys with assault weapons murdering children in schools?
If the NRA can’t control its “well regulated militia,” then the majority has to.
For the sake of our children–our future.
