FACT: NRA Members Prevent Shootings, Not Cause Them

As was seen during the immediate aftermath of the Las Vegas mass shooting which claimed the lives of roughly 60 people, the tragic altercation in Texas has once again prompted countless Twitter trolls to label the National Rifle Association as a terrorist organization.

The exchange to the left pretty much sums up the sort of discourse we’ve been seeing for the past couple of days. According to people like Michael Ian Black, the NRA is just as guilty as the very people who pull the trigger during these mass shooting events.

The fact of the matter is that there has been no recorded mass shooting event wherein an NRA member was the culprit. In fact, the person responsible for stopping the massacre at the church shooting in Texas on Sunday was an NRA member, who without a doubt prevented further slaughter.

Calling the NRA or any other pro-Second Amendment lobby a terrorist organization over and over again doesn’t make it any less of a lie.
