NRA has backed most state gun laws passed since Sandy Hook

Vehicle makers argue against higher fuel economy standards.

But, occasionally, profit and human interest overlap.

Just this week, Dick's Sporting Goods and Walmart - two of the nation's leading gun sellers - chose to restrict the purchase of all firearms to those who are at least 21 years of age.

When 17 people, mostly kids, were killed in Florida by a insane teen with easy access to a military weapon, the NRA's toadies tried once again to stop the obvious conversation like a school child dropped by an AR-15. A Politico poll reported that eight in 10 Americans favor gun control measures including implementing mandated background checks, expanding screening for the mentally ill, subjecting private and gun show sales to background checks, and preventing sales to those convicted of violent misdemeanors, as well as those on federal no-fly or watch lists.

Perhaps, most prominently, President Donald Trump has publicly clashed with the NRA over an increase in the age requirement for assault rifle purchases. So it better be handled accordingly because guns are not going away and sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. The chain had stopped selling all guns at about one-third of its stores in 2006, citing "diminished customer relevancy".

The recurrence of school shootings and lack of government response is discouraging. "Our hearts went out to those kids and to their parents", he said in an interview with CNN.

There is the usual chorus of thoughts and prayers flowing from the expected corners. But that doesn't really do anything.

Czapla said that some teachers may be adept at handling firearms, but "they do not have the intensive training on how to react in a chaotic and high-stress situation that may require lethal force".

"We had meaningful conversations about this with our team", he added.

Stand with us on March 14 and March 24 to support the actions proposed by our kids.

Every time there has been a mass murder in the USA, the first response by the GOP is, "Now is not the time to discuss this issue". First of all, if someone breaks into your house, most likely it will be hard for you to get to your gun safe, unlock it, get your gun, and load your gun without the intruder arriving to you first.

President Donald Trump said a bunch of insane things this week. It also said it will more actively engage with gun manufacturers, and in some instances vote against the wishes of company management.

Although the amendment dealt a significant blow to research on gun violence, it did not end it. GVPedia has collected more than 740 academic studies and papers on the subject, a majority of which were published after 1996. Why, when most schools have police already? It is predominantly white men.

Yes. On top of a protest movement started by Florida shooting survivors, a growing number of companies have cut ties with America's main gun lobby, the National Rifle Association (NRA).

The moral void of Trump has been a catastrophe for America in many ways, but it's contributing to a backlash against the systemic abuses of power on which so much of the violence in American life is founded.

As Dick's CEO Stack said, "it's the right thing to do".
