[ARTICLE] The Second Amendment
Filed Under: Wellness | Published: Mar 19, 2018 | Author: FT
President Trump told a gathering of governors at the White House in March, that 'we are going to do very strong background checks' for gun buyers.  He also said that he wants to get rid of bump stocks.  A "bump stock:" replaces a rifle's standard stock, which is the part held aganist the shoulder.  It frees the weapon to slide back and forth rapidly, harnessing the energy from the kickback shooters feel when the weapon fires.  The bump stock is not banned under federal law even though it allows a weapon to fire at nearly the rate of a machine gun without technically converting it to a fully automatic fire arm.

The president endorsed a higher age requirement, such as 21 years of age.  It is still something that is being discussed.

The National Rifle Association is an NON-PROFIT organization that advocates for gun rights.  It was founded in 1871, the group has informed its members about firearm-related bills since 1934, and it has directly lobbied for and aganist legislation since 1975.  The bulk of the group's money now comes in form of contributions, grants, royalty income, and advertising, much of it origination from gun industry sources.  Since, 2005 the gun industry and its corporate allies have given between $20 million and $52.6 million through the NRA.

Josh Sugarmann, executive director of the Violence Policy Center says that while the NRA portrays itself as prtoection the 'freedom' of individual gun owners, its actually working to protect the freedom of the gun industry to manufacture and sell virtually any weapon or accessory.

It is the NRA that is in front of the gun control debate, not the gun manufacturers.
