Of course that is true of all organizations. However the NRA also has a third category, the f::king bat s::t crazies. It is that portion of the org. that incites fear, anger and loathing. Both sides experience this but from very different perspectives
That is the NRA strategy to get the nutty ones more paranoid with this crap they are spreading about the government might take away your guns. The ad was disgusting using children especially Obama's in saying they have more privileges than other children in protecting them in school.
Actually if there were no or few guns there would be a lot more knife deaths and even mass murders. Japan is a testament to that. SeverAl years ago a man broke into an Osaka elem school and killed some ten little kids with a knife. Having said that I would prefer this reality to what the US is grappling with.

Sure, with enough determination and — dare I say — ingenuity, one can find ways to murder a room full of people without access to firearms. But how often do such incidents happen? In the U.S., there are 32 gun deaths every day! More than 900 in the month btwn the Sandy Hook massacre and Pres. Obama's announcement yesterday. Nine f'n hundred gun deaths in one short month!
If just half of Obama's proposals had been in effect for the last three years, those statistics would have fallen by at least 25%, and probably more.
Nothing will ever end gun violence entirely. But if we can just reduce it by making it harder to accomplish, countless lives will be saved — without trampling the Second Amendment.
