The answer to school shootings

The NRA has decided to match calls for common sense limitations on who can purchase a firearm by demanding that the First Amendment be completely ripped up.

The NRA’s propaganda network (yes, they have one if you were not previously aware) tweeted a clip calling for limitations on the media’s ability to report on school shootings.

“It’s time to put an end to this glorification of carnage in pursuit of ratings because it’s killing our kids,” NRATV’s Colion Noir actually said. 

“It’s time for Congress to step up and pass legislation putting common sense limitations on #MSM‘s ability to report on these school shootings.”

While the Second Amendment is immensely important to the National Rifle Association, it’s clear that the First Amendment isn’t since they are calling for laws restricting what the media can and can’t report.


In February, Bloomberg reported that gun stocks have been suffering volatility recently, with sales falling off in recent years and some court decisions that are unfriendly to the gun lobby:
Tuesday’s headlines underscored that the trade in gun stocks is becoming more nuanced with more moving parts and greater uncertainty. On one hand, the Trump administration advanced a ban on “bump stocks” (but not guns) and Florida legislators voiced opposition to reviving any attempt to ban assault rifles. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court handed down a pair of adverse decisions for the gun lobby and a Quinnipiac poll showed support for gun control at the highest ever in the poll’s history.
It remains to be seen how the lack of a major legislative threat could affect gun sales. Sturm Ruger on Wednesday reported fourth-quarter revenue and earnings this missed the sole analyst estimates. 2017 sales fell 21 percent from the prior year, to $522.3 million.
The NRA is worried, and when the NRA is worried, it’s cause for celebration.
