It is not just the NRA....
There are a host of gun organizations out there... the NRA is probably the most passive of them all. The press likes to ignore the rest... thinking in their naivete the public may not find them... LOL.
I do not remember the name... however there is one organization that is something like $10M strong... and supported by atty's in all 50 states. Their mission is to take down laws through litigation which argue with the 2nd amendment. They were key players in overturning the CCW ban in Ill recently.
The gun crowd is alive and well and STRONG in America... Corny you are just dreaming... or instigating.
