You mean the NRA doesn't have "blood on its hands" over this, too?

1. She was a Peta supporter not a member
2. Can I have a source for that.

Yeah was going to say, knowing whether any of them were actually NRA members I imagine is almost impossible to know. Legally held weapons, yep... most of them are.

What? That's like the easiest thing to know, if inquired. They actually have a database and membership. This isn't like some nebulous thing. I've heard of 0 cases where it has been "We have been unable to determine if this individual is part of our organization."

I don't really think it's impossible to know whether or not someone is a member of the NRA. They keep records of that..
And I'm sure the records for that are different than the records of people who just get their newsletter.

The same is true for any such organization, be it the NRA, PeTA, or the ACLU.

NRA members get cool little cards... And tshirts and jackets and hats... And would be Front Page News if any of the shooters had had products from them... even if they weren't actually members.

So far, the only "shooter" that was an NRA member was the good guy with a gun that lived next door to that church where a ton of people were murdered. Using an AR15. Not a full auto. Also not an "assault rifle".

That is readily accessible and queried by anyone, not just the NRA?

Reporter: So... was <insert name of shooter> a member of the NRA?
NRA: <Silence>

That's what I meant...
