NRA Values are a health risk to America’s youth.

In the following decade violent crime in the UK would skyrocket 77% leaving citizens of the UK with no way to defend themselves in what would become known as “The Violent Crime Capital of Europe.” The UK would gain a rate of violent crime several times higher than that of the US and would continue to fall apart as lawmakers scrambled to ban more and more items.
Revisionism and lack of context are a health risk to the youth of not just America but every state that would steal the rights of its citizens overnight.

Except, you’re wrong: 



Gun supporters lying to back up their claims. Nothing new. Always disgusting.

Gentle reminder that not all white people are racist.

Not all people are like that.

And the worst thing is, you all are blindly attacking EVERYONE due to the stereotype that you have set.

They can’t help being white anymore than a black or Chinese can.

"A ‘black’ or ‘Chinese’".

Bye racist white.

You can’t make this stuff up.

Speak of the Devil and he shall make himself appear.
You demon.
