The National Rifle Association represents gun and ammunition makers and suppliers as well as any gun owner that thinks its way. An old trick, used by the NRA, is to make people think we, the American public, need the very costly weapons of mass destruction guns to "protect us from a tyrannical government". The reality is our government is the best government in the world and that's why many, many, many people from all over the world come to live in the USA. Our government functions with the people inwhich more and more laws come into being to protect children, women, minorities, etc., laws which many other countries of the world do not have at all. Being against a "tyrannical government" was referred to in the USA Constitution in 1776 when many people, including some members of the USA government, were still aligned; in sympathy with Great Britain and King George the 3rd land claims and loyalty claims over the original 13 colonies. Today, the people of the USA would not at all call our government a tyrannical government.
