@Desertratkuwait @clluelo I don't consider myself "done" in the public eye for reacting this way. I'm a human being, and have the same feelings everyone else gets. I'm entitled to stick up for myself, I make no apologies for for it. If it makes people nervous or uncomfortable then that's their issue not mine.

@rawley15 Ok, misunderstood you. Also, I don't think people understand what I mean, and just hear the word "compromise" and start making assumptions on my views (which nobody seems to know). My job will be to explain what I mean.

@Scoutmapper Trivia question? What was an assault rifle when the 2A was written?

@rawley15 I'm not sure where you're getting that I'm against assault rifles?

@big_hatdance I appreciate your stance. It's impossible to agree on everything.
@Logan F Crooks Thank you
@GS5414 I don't have a problem with that site but there are some ignorant people making comments over there.
@leiber Thanks Leib, will do.
1. I've never suggested compromise on the 2A but you can make other compromises and suggest new ways of doing things to meet the opposition half way in some cases. I say again, never said compromise on the 2A, you and a lot of people are automatically making this assumption but it's not grounded.
2. I couldn't agree more. My NRA membership does make me qualified to run, and I'm not afraid to point out that I have more firearms experience then a lot of sitting board members. Have you looked into their backgrounds? I'd encourage you to do this, especially La Pierre's.
3. I was making a point, and you're nit picking. I understand the difference.
4. I disagree in part with this statement. New laws are passed all the time that don't make sense. Limited magazine capacity is one.
5. Mental illness is a broad category but if you look at most of the mass shootings the shooter has suffered from serious mental disorder. Paranoid schizophrenia is one, I'm not talking about minor mental health issues. I've personally been diagnosed with PTSD and am safe with firearms.
6. If we are safer as a group (of firearms owners) then it's good for the cause period.
I appreciate your response, and respect your opinion regardless. Thanks GS5414
@A7Dave @GS5414 Thanks for the support.
@Virginstateofmind @ajgamble I just replied to this.
@Virginstateofmind @GS5414 I don't think it was too aggressive but I felt I needed to at least put a rudder in the water for people. A lot of folks were making some crazy allegations about my stance on the 2A and even calling me a socialist because of my Canadian heritage.
@ajgamble The youth is the future, and I don't think the current leadership has done a good job appealing to younger Americans. And the NRA will go the way of the VFW (massive decline in membership) if they don't fix this.
@fionagreenamyer Thank you.
@Recon6 Thanks 6. Good points you make also.
@CCB299 Thank you

@susanmarie24 See above, I think that the professional SCUBA industry has a good model to use. While you don't need to be certified to dive, most boats, shops will not fill your tank or let you on a trip unless you are certified by a professional org…in this case it would be the NRA or equivalent.
@Scoutmapper I'm not sure licensing is the way to go. I think it should be handled more like professional SCUBA certification.
