To the media everyone who supports the 2A is the NRA. When the SafeAct was passed the Buffalo News called SCOPE and NYSRPA the NRA. The average LA Times reader has been conditioned to have a Pavlovian reaction (drooling) every time the letters NRA are printed. It's like the abused media term "assault weapon". To own a handgun in NY you have to pass a safety course, under go an extensive background check, pay outrageous fees etc. All kinds of minimum requirements to exercise your 2A rights. There's no minimum requirement to be a media reporter let alone LA Times subscriber.im glad to see the NRA step in but why did they wait for maryland?? why not new york?????
