Stand Up to NRA


It’s time that someone stood up against the NRA and put them in their place. Why doesn’t President Obama do what our prime minister did back 20 years ago — had an amnesty, pulled all rifles from the owners, paid them a small amount of money, and banned firearms. It has worked and stopped killings.

Its time that President Obama stood up to the NRA, and so should Congress and BAN firearms.

It’s time that the NRA realized that they aren’t as good as they reckon they are.
