Skip to comments.Sen. Schumer: NRA Fringe Group, Doesn't Represent Average Gun Owners, "Very Extreme"
Posted on 01/21/2013 2:35:12 PM PST by Sir Napsalot
In comments made Friday, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said the National Rifle Association (NRA) is a "fringe group" that is "very extreme."
Moreover, according to Schumer, the NRA doesn't "represent average gun [owners]."
Schumer says that during the 1990s the NRA used their lobbying power to fill background checks with loopholes, thus leading to a situation where "40 percent of all guns sold in American have no [background] check."
You'll recall that Obama also used this "40 percent" claim when pushing for more gun control earlier in the week. This claim goes back to a 2011 study by Mayor Michael Bloomberg, where secondary, private guns were lumped in with new guns sales in an attempt to justify saying guns were entering the marketplace with no background checks whatsoever.

WHAT? The NRA DOES represent the average gun owner.You Sen. are the extreme fringe of the gun issue.
“Anything to Shumers right he considers extreme.”
Really I’m not extreme Mr. Shumer, but I can be prodded there...
I’ve read some analyses from a couple of shrinks. But none from the Jewish communities that I know of.
But I may not recognize names/background, since I don’t think they trumpet the fact themselves.
My point is having the ever-loving Senator walk the trail might give the opportunity to get a more realistic view of the world as it is.....
Roger L Simon on PJ Media (and his old blog before PJM) is one exception.
I’m an ‘average’ gun owner, and the NRA sure as he!! represents me! - a lot better than my own idiot Commie Statist Senators from the once-great State of Washington (yes I’m talking about you, Murray and Cantwell).
And the NRA represents your average constituent a damned sight better than you do...
How I detest these contemptible know-it-all Statists!
