      What exactly is corrupt about the NRA? I can point to several things corrupt about the Clintons. Can you expand and provide details that prove corruption, and then explain why they aren’t being investigated by the Feds?

        They pay money to profit from the murder of people and have paid legislators to make them the only industry free from liability. Who gives an F about the Clintons? You can’t look at anything without screaming “Obama, the Clintons!!” like an absolute lunatic.

          The “only industry free from liability”. Well, you can’t sue the Federal Government for personal damage if they are judged to be just “administering the law”. And you can’t sue a car maker if someone intentionally rams their car into a crowd. So why should you sue the NRA if someone shoots someone else? The NRA had nothing to do with it.

          Because you are so non-partisan and open-minded, that’s why.

            You can definitely sue a car maker if their product is legal and poses significant dangers, even if the car company was NOT actively hiding said danger from the public. See: Chevrolet Corvair.

            The car comparison was made thinking about guns that are sold 100% legally but are extremely easy to modify to make them illegal automatic weapons.

            Technically the gun maker didn’t do anything wrong, but their manufacturing process should have changed when they found out their guns being easily modified to become illegal automatic weapons.

            Stop it. Anyone with a brain can make automatic weapons, or bombs, or anything destructive that they want. Guns are just an easy target for scare tactics…

            So Some Guy,
            Who are Agent, Craig, and Yogi going to call when they need an automatic weapon?

            “Anyone with a brain can make …” True, but gun manufacturers should try to hinder people WITHOUT brains from being able to easily modify their guns to make them illegal.

          Please tell me U/W what legislation the NRA has recently supported that caused anyone to be murdered? Regardless of ones opinion of lobbying organizations they are today legal and that is what the NRA does is lobby on behalf of it’s members. No different than NOW supporting the right to choose. At least in the case of a gun shot wound there is a chance to survive an innocent infant aborted is guaranteed to die. If live or death is the issue than let’s start standing up against all loss of life.

    Pure POLITICS. This DFS has too much power and oversight – who’s watching and overseeing them? NY governor? Liberal government limits our rights as they think they know what’s best for its citizens. And look who runs these liberal govt bodies – progressive leftists who legislate with emotion and not the facts. we’re a republic and not a democracy – don’t think the leftists even know that or if they do, they don’t want to acknowledge the fact.

    One of our illustrious NY Senators, Kevin S. Parker has now proposed a bill that requires owners of firearms to have liability insurance. The bill is currently in the Insurance Committee. The DFS (at Cuomo’s bidding) went after the Lockton/NRA program and eliminated one of our competitive markets. More foul smells coming from Cuomo’s Leftist Albany.

    I always find the comments form some on this board to be amazing.
    1. Gun manufacturers are not immune from suit they are only immune form suits that cannot prove that the weapon was by it’s manufacture unsafe or in the case of the retailer not following the laws regarding proper sale.
    2. It is not easy to make a gun fully automatic it takes significant machining and knowhow to achieve this status and by the way a bump stock by definition does not make any weapon fully automatic.
    3. They NRA is no different than any political group which attempts to sway the legislators to vote in a manner that they feel will best protect the interests of the membership.

    If you are going to make hyperbole statements at least put some truth behind them.

    How this can be taken as anything but government censorship of a private organization operating within full compliance with the law for the sole purposes of pushing a personal agenda and currying political brownie points is beyond me. This sort of regulation, for the sake of making a statement rather than from any need, should be disconcerting to anyone in the industry – it sets a dangerous precedent that allows for government targeting of organizations and business operating within the letter of the law simply because of differing ideals, and that isn’t acceptable by any means.
