contrary to what many think, the NRA does NOT represent all of the gun owners in this country. They do some good, and they do some bad, but mostly they are indifferent to local gun laws and issues. If they need to open carry in Texas to remind people of their constitutional rights and illegal immigrant pressure and drug dealing along the border...then that is Texan's business. the NRA should keep their yap shut

Also @Sleepyhollow- How about having a restraining order against you at some point in your life? Half of marriages end in divorce and probably 90% have a restraining order in place. Your ability as a law abiding gun owner can be stripped away by a vindictive spouse in about 30 secs. I know, because it happened to me. Once the judge saw she was a whack job ( No politically correct term can describe her), he gave my legally owned firearms back to me….a month after hunting season closed. I wonder what would happen to the driving accident mortality rate if you needed an IQ of 100 to be able to drive? Oh, and I wonder what the world would be like if you had to have an IQ of over 100 to have children. Less gun crime, I’d bet. But, when would it end? It’s too Orwellian for me. Mandatory prison time for crimes committed with a firearm would do a much better job of seriously lowering the crime rate. Stop the criminals so you and I can continue on

@Sleepyhollow- I agree that like in any group, the actions of a few can ruin it for all. I’d like to mention that there have been millions of law abiding citizens with IQ’s less than 100 that would never contemplate committing a crime with a firearm. Every law abiding gun owner and NRA member that I know completely agree that a ( insert politically frackin correct word here) person with a very low IQ or known serious problems should never own a gun. Also, what tests will be instilled after the IQ test? ADD, ADHD, FASD? Who will be conducting the tests? This Gov would probably choose the IRS. Mandatory prison time for crimes committed with a firearm would do a much better job of seriously lowering the crime rate.

gun carrying idiot
You comment lumps a large group together as stupid because you disagree with them......how progressive!
[quote]If a place tells you in advance they don't want guns on their premise why is that such an issue? It`s about respecting someone else property.[/quote]
That wasn`t what I asked. If someone doesn`t obey federal/state gun laws and other things like don`t rob/murder what makes you think they`ll obey a request by a private place? SO no police allowed then too right they also have guns.....
