Really? I'm not an NRA member, but they did a horrible job today. Literally all they had to do was go up and say these two stats (quoted from the GOA article I just linked to):
- "In fact, according to FBI data, U.S. murders dropped nearly 40% to 14,478 in 2010 -- a significant drop from 23,440 in 1990 -- even as the overall population grew by 24 percent!"
- "Over 170,000,000 (that's one hundred and seventy million) human beings have been slaughtered by their governments in the 20th Century after they gave up their guns."
Those two stats are enough to ether any gun-grabbers' arguments. Instead, they chose to ramble on about armed guards on the playground at school. This is why it's so easy for liberals to portray 2nd Amendment supporters as a bunch of gun-toting nutjobs.
