  • Why is the NRA -- a group that represents the interests of gun manufacturers -- taken seriously in debates about reducing gun violence?Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOFollow Strikethrough on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/CarlosMazaVox/After the mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, news networks are once again focused on the debate over gun control. These debates often pit gun control activists against the National Rifle Association (NRA), which claims to speak on behalf of gun owners. But in reality, the NRA represents the interest of gun manufacturers.The group gets millions of dollars in donations from gun companies every year, and millions more through the sale of ad space in NRA publications. That financial allegiance means the NRA is similar to organizations like the Tobacco Institute -- an industry lobbying group primarily interested in protecting their product. So why do news networks keep inviting them to debate gun violence?Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    Living in Australia, I can literally not even fathom what that would be like. Such a thing would have (and less serious pro-gun things) have people on the whole political spectrum condemning it here in Australia

    Sorry, but King Pinocchio is taking our liberties away by going as far as banning the "bump stocks". Isn't "what's next" the straw-man of the deplorables? Just saying.

    So, companies that SELL guns to people who obviously support gun rights (evident in ones purchase) donates money to a gun rights organization ? Sounds rather American to me.

    Vox is an incredibly anti American platform. They stretch the boundaries of the first amendment
