Having the best defense rifle to defend against such a scenario would be the best choice and it happens to be our right too.
    What if, what if. Are we talking about an extract from the movie TAKEN or something that happens in reality?

    Back to the topic at hand which is the industrial slaughter of children in schools by one individual. Or the slaughter of people in movie theaters.

    Really, well it seems like the NRA are having quite an influence on policy over the last 20 years and they are nothing more than spokesmen for gun manufacturers.

    Bit hyperbolic. Special interest influence doesn't stop at gun-manufacturers.

    Agreed. Let me rephrase, running policy that impacts their bottom lines.

    They are just like any other special interest group...they try to influence policy based on their best interest. Every industry practices this tactic. I can verify that it happens tremendously in the medical industry.
