http://rense.com/politics6/nra.htm

4 Reasons The NRA is a Red Herring
December 19, 2012
http://unprison.com/2012/12/19/4-reasons-the-nra-is-a-red-herring/
People have already begun targeting the NRA as a pressure point for the problem of gun violence.  There are four key factors to consider when going after the NRA.
1. The NRA provides political cover for profiteers.
2.  Economic power motivates more politicians than ideological power.
3.  The NRA is legitimized by the Supreme Court, not campaign contributions.
4.  Gun control can be a red herring to systemic issues of violence.

"All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those towards whom it is directed will understand it. Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda must be lower the larger the number of people who are to be influenced by it."

PROTECT OUR CHILDREN - "They corrupt, seduce and or destroy our children." CIVIL LIBERTIES SACRIFICED - "We must give up some of our freedoms, liberties, and rights in order to combat this menace to society." LEGAL DESCRIMINATION - Laws criminalize members of targeted group and they may be denied jobs, the right to own property and/or be restricted as to where they may live or go. INFORMERS - Citizens are urged to 'turn in' friends, neighbors, co-workers and family members. SECRET POLICE - Non-uniformed police squads set up to wage war on targeted groups utilizing deception, infiltration, espionage and entrapment. CONFISCATION OF PROPERTY - Property and assets are seized from people who are members of targeted group. Property may be divided between the informer and the state.

We’ve always suspected that the Army Corps, an agency with an abysmal environmental track record, would rubber-stamp the Keystone XL southern segment. But the extent and nature of the stonewalling and secrecy displayed by the agency during this review would shock even a seasoned D.C. insider. It’s taken grassroots outrage and media scrutiny to pry from the Army Corps even basic details about the process.

"Our youth can not understand why society chooses to criminalize a behavior with so little visible ill effect or adverse social impact... These young people have jumped the fence and found no cliff. And the disrespect for the possession laws fosters a disrespect for laws and the system in general... On top of this is the distinct impression among the youth that some police may use the marihuana laws to arrest people they don't like for other reasons, whether it be their politics, their hair style or their ethnic background." "Federal and state laws (should) be changed to no longer make it a crime to possess marijuana for private use." ; "State laws should make the public use of marijuana a criminal offense punishable by a $100 fine. Under federal law, marijuana smoked in public would merely be subject to seizure."
