Upcoming Frontline Program: How The NRA Works To Stop Gun Legislation


Frontline, a PBS news magazine will examine this issue on Wednesday August 5th. In Madison the program will air at 10:00 P.M. Viewers in other areas need to check local listings.

One of the sadder spectacles in congress is how the National Rifle Association with a ton of cash and a limitless supply of politically charged brute force has been able to stymie needed gun legislation.   This year alone—up to the time of this posting–there have been over 190 shootings of four people or more in this nation.   Even more telling, concerning the dark side of the NRA’s political operation, is that polling shows nearly 74% of National Rifle Association members “support requiring background checks for all gun sales.”

But people do not matter to the leaders of the NRA. Not even the concern of their members.

This reminds me of the outlandish and deadly brand of religion known as Wahhabism. That is a most bizarre and austere form of Islam that insists on a literal interpretation of the Koran. Much like religious radicals, so too does the NRA act illogically, as they promote a pure austere form of political control concerning the Second Amendment.

Time and again deadly gun violence is reported in the headlines and yet nothing happens to allow for our nation to resemble other developed ones around the globe who do not constantly have to bury tens of thousands of their citizens each year from guns.

What is the problem?
