Everyone gets a gun...even kids? NRA's new video triggers intense criticism

The NRA's video titled "Everyone gets a gun," was met with heavy criticism among social organizations and parents alike because according to the author of the video, NRA commentator Billy Johnson, children need to be introduced to firearms at a young age. In the video, which was released on Monday, Johnson suggests the idea of kids needing to show gun proficiency in order to advance to the next grade.

“Just like we teach them reading and writing, necessary skills. We would teach shooting and firearm competency,” Johnson emphasized. “It wouldn’t matter if a child’s parents weren’t good at it. We’d find them a mentor. It wouldn’t matter if they didn’t want to learn. We would make it necessary to advance to the next grade.”

If the NRA wants to subsidize

If the NRA wants to subsidize gun use, they need to collect voluntarily from their membership and do it with that money, not put a gun to my head. This is SO intellectually inconsistent as I'm sure these people are against welfare of other kinds!!

Interesting and ironic...

Many of the anti-gun policies this guy is talking about were enacted with NRA's aid and/or compromise!

Additionally, many of this guy's pro-gun policy suggestions mirror those of Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America. Could it be that the GOA is encroaching on the NRA's membership and influence? Hope so.
