With Rights Come Responsibilities, But the NRA Doesn’t See It That Way.


With rights come responsibilities, and no right is absolute. Yet, those who would challenge any effort at reasonable gun laws based on the Second Amendment repeatedly demonstrate their lack of responsibility. The NRA, which claims to appeal to “great Americans,” recognizes on its website that the confiscation of semi-automatic firearms in Australia led to the elimination of mass shooting murders. It’s pretty simple: the NRA, the Republican party, and their supporters would rather have those guns in general circulation regardless of the death they cause.
