The constitutional argument

Gun control may take time to progress, and it may also mean that many gun lobbyists have to come together to form a strong and united organization instead of many separate interests with the same basic agenda. Only then can the political sway of the NRA be taken on realistically. “Under the principles of common law, all individuals and industry groups have a duty to act responsibly. The NRA wants to exempt the gun industry from that duty. ‘The gun lobby wants to shut the courthouse door to victims of gun violence. Shame on any legislator who sponsors this dangerous special interest legislation,’ said Sarah Brady” (Gun Violence, 2007).

The gun control lobby, as contrasted to the NRA, has many proposals that just seem to make more rational and reasonable sense.
