Is the NRA a civil rights group for the 2nd or a lobbying organisation for gun manufacturers?

as a staunch supporter of the 2nd, I have come to the realisation that the NRA really doesn't care about the 2nd amendment rights of gun owners. they are just a poster child, to insure the profits of the weapons manufacturers.

    You are not a "staunch" supporter of the Second Amendment. 

    Source(s): Not an NRA member.

    Thank you for a good question. 

    The National Rifle Association is a very old organization that was first founded to support the sport of hunting in America.  And so at its beginning, it was more interested in promoting the sport, conserving wild life and ensuring state game laws were equitable for all.

    Fast forward.  Today, the NRA is owned by gun manufacturers who want to convince people that some evil person is lurking at their door and they will need to shoot them.  They want to sell guns and promote a climate of fear in America so that people will go out and buy them. 

    their greatest sins are these:

    1)  They want no background checks on ANYONE.  They feel that EVERYONE, including the chronically mentally ill to felons should be able to own guns without regulation. 

    2)  They are not on board with hunting anymore because they promote the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and weapons of mass destruction that are unsuitable for hunting deer or wild turkeys.  It's not about hunting, it's about arming the citizenry with greater weapons than the local police have. 

    3)  The NRA has become right wing political now.  They even float "conspiracy theories" that try to deny mass shootings ever occurred.  The NRA is now owned by gun manufacturers and they are not a sporting organization any longer.  They are an American Domestic Terrorism Association and this is why so many of their sponsors have left them.

    Those two things are essential to the other. Access to firearms require someone making firearms and for someone to continue making firearms they must be able to turn a profit.

    To turn a profit someone must want to own a firearm and be able to afford one. 

    Very simple economics. Don't even need an introductory economics course to understand that one.
