In the interests of fairness, her “all or nothing” descriptor of the NRA does not accurately represent the NRA’s efforts, at least in word and in principle, to support legislation that keeps guns from people who should not have them. However, the practical reality of the NRA’s actions (from my years as an NRA member) does not seem to align with their rhetoric when it comes to the type of legislation they will support and the basis for what they will and will not support.
