Re "NRA promotes gun-makers" (Letters, April 5): Looks like Friday is bash the NRA day The Bee. Letter writers should realize that the NRA has always been first and foremost in developing and promoting gun safety programs for children and adults.
Every scheme put forth by Barack Obama's Administration and congressional cohorts is aimed at one thing: backdoor registration - ownership lists, easily converted to confiscation lists, given the opportunity.
Rather than offer real solutions like including the dangerously mentally ill in the current instant background check system, or mandating meaningful gun crime prosecution, they offer nothing but feel-good window dressing. That's where the real shame lies.
