Did I say I had something against self defense? NRA is not about 'self defense' and neither is this case. It's one thing to defend your property, another to get a license to carry a weapon so that you may go out and create a reason to use it.
The NRA is part of our politics and that's what I have against it.
Did you read the post you replied to?<quoted text>
The NRA has a long history of promoting self defense. The NRA is the oldest civil rights organization in the United States.
"While African Americans were being terrorized by the KKK, where the Klan were sometimes aided by local law enforcement, the NRA setup charters to help train local African American communities to be able protect themselves. The most prominent case being in 1960 in Monroe, N.C. where the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People head Robert Williams also chartered an NRA Rifle Club that successfully defended an assault on one of their leader's homes by the KKK without casualties"
Self Protection involves more then just protecting your property, it also involves your person and others around you.
Who do you believe is responsible for your self protection?
