Review for National Rifle Association Of America, Fairfax, VA, USA
The NRA should not be a tax-exempt non-profit organization. They help promote conspiracy theories of tyranny to justify the second amendment. They use the second amendment to justify having unfettered right to enjoy a hobby such as target shooting and hunting at the expense of lives. Making it easy for the members to get a gun also makes it easier for someone with ill intentions to get a gun. Who really needs an AR-15 with bump-stocks for hunting and target practice? Now, they want to add silencers on top of that. They really don't care about what will happen if it gets into the wrong hands. As long as they get to enjoy their hobby and make as much money as possible and promote their candidates. They are a self-righteous, arrogant lot. "law abiding citizens" Most of us are law-abiding citizens, we don't need to brag about it. It shouldn't give us the right to weapons that can fire 800 rounds per minute. Trump hinted at background checks and banning bump stocks. What happened was the sale of bump stocks went way up and instead Trump's solution is to arm teachers and they can get a "little bonus". No coincidence that the NRA contributed 30 million dollars to his campaign. Any other hobby, such as scuba diving, one needs to be trained, and it's only your own life you are putting at risk. The NRA is all about money and power.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
take away their tax exempt non-profit status and take away their power.
