So, my wife bought her first gun recently, and for the first time ever...she got a call from that organization. She didn't answer, but they left a message and she listened, then shared it with me. They are apparently advertising that there needs to be BACKGROUND CHECKS to get a gun. My wife, who is now totally for gun rights, thought it was the stupidest thing to claim because she's seen firsthand that there ARE background checks. According to their FaceBook page, they are spreading the same message, but in one post they specify they want to strengthen them. How are they able to spin their lies with big, bold lettered banners that we need background checks like they don't already exist? They're either ignorant, or trying to exploit the ignorance of others.

Thoughts? Other stories to share? I'd love to know I'm not the only one who rolled their eyes so hard they got a headache hearing about this drivel.

MDA are pushing for UBC’s which would have stopped almost no mass shootings. The weapons purchased for most incidents were acquired legally with the background checks already in place. So, is the NRA giving purchase info to MDA?

They're either (DOOR #1) ignorant, or (DOOR #2) trying to exploit the ignorance of others.

I think they are wanting to push the background check more towards the Spanish Inquisition end of the spectrum. ....better to err of the side of unjustly denying "a few people" their right to keep and bear arms than have more "gun crimes"........meanwhile let's ignore the problem of criminals getting their guns far away from gun stores.
