I'm Adam Lanza, and I'm the NRA

Among the items police recovered from the Lanza home after the Sandy Hook shootings was Adam Lanza's NRA membership papers.
He also had instruction manuals from the NRA.

And you think
Lanza represents millions of NRA members? I wouldn't have believed that even you could be that stupid.

This verbally gifted way of addressing another poster PROVES that cruiser has a ridiculously high IQ.

The best part
about what was released today is the NRA, even in the face of the membership certificate with Adam Lanza's name printed right on it, is still claiming that he was not a member of the NRA.
Denial just ain't a river in Egypt, folks.

With graphic design software
and a color printer you could be the second Earl of Snowden. I can certainly question whether Lanza's "certificate" was authentic.

And since cruzo IS a birther...
maybe he should demand the NRA make it's membership rolls public.
You know, so we can find the truth.
Adam Lanza is the new poster boy of the NRA.

Just a clarification...
The NRA now says the certificates are not for "membership" but for completing NRA shooter training.
So, the NRA denies Lanza was a member. They just admit they taught him how to shoot.

From what I've read
It does NOT appear that Lanza was an NRA member--"The NRA certificates the police found in the house likely had nothing to do with formal NRA membership -- they were possibly awarded for completion of training and safety courses that had been certified by the NRA, the nation's largest gun safety training organization. According to its website, the NRA doesn't offer formal certificates for membership." (Huffington)
So while Lanza wasn't a "member", the idea that he or his Mom would go thru the effort of faking a certificate sounds a tad looney-tune conspiracy time. Just my opinion.

good to know.
All that NRA training and nobody (supposed weapons and safety experts) went ... umm .. er .. should this strange kid be firing weapons?
Nope! 'cause .. its just a "sport."
Guns don't kill people!
(Just varmints. cause, that's what the AR-15 was designed for, according to cruiser.)
On the other hand, I'm sure the NRA can be proud that all that training apparently worked.
He seemed quite adept at quickly changing the extended mags, and didn't seem to waste many bullets while hunting down little children.
er, I mean varmints.

Is this thread for real?
Someone who had guns might have belonged to the NRA?
Someone who had guns might have taken gun training classes offered by the NRA?
Next you'll post how a car owner took a defensive driving class.
Or a homeowner signed up for a Saturday home improvement DIY class at one of the big box stores.
Seriously? This info changes NOTHING.
But keep bickering about stuff that doesn't matter.
Still waiting for all that medical info, prescription bottles found with Lanza'a name on it, any papers signed ready to admit him to an institution, any health insurance documentation that could dictate his state of mind since so much was made of his mental health status.
But most curious about the drugs he was taking.
You think the pharmaceutical manufacturer wants its name associated with Sandy Hook? Hardly. This info will never be released.
Look what happened after Columbine, once the medical info was released. Pop quiz: Anyone have any idea when black box warnings went on SSRIs? Or what happened to the person involved?

Let's stick to the issues...
People like myself (I am a gun owner) do not want all guns taken away from people, and no one has even suggested that. What we want are assault weapons banned along with clips that hold more than a few bullets. That's it. If someone can justify why someone in the general public should be able to own weapons that are manufactured solely for the intent of killing a lot of people in a short amount of time, I am willing to listen. So far, it hasn't happened. There is no reason you can't protect yourself and your family, go hunting or go practice shooting with a single shot weapon that holds a handful of bullets. Period. Well, I am waiting...

I would agree to all of that--but I would have to include a complete, thorough universal background check. On anyone and everyone purchasing a gun--be it a gun store or a gun show.
The NRA USED to be in favor of that, but no more. I mean, really, checking to make sure a convicted felon murderer doesn't buy an assault weapon is just a stepping stone away from confiscating a hunters rifle. Right??
Posted - 3/29/2013 2:25:41 PM | show profile | flag this post
It's a legitimate thread. Because the NRA always disavows shooters who have an NRA membership.
I'd like to see a spread sheet where journalists could check convicted gun criminals with NRA membership. But the NRA doesn't want anyone to know who belongs or where it's money comes from.
And you being our conspiracy freak here I'm surprised you aren't claiming that Lanza was an NRA plant. I mean, whenever there's a school shooting, gun buyers buy more guns and ammo. Here we have an NRA-trained shooter, with an NRA manual in his home doing a school shooting that spurred the biggest gun-buying spree in U.S. history.
Why aren't you claiming that conspiracy?
If you take it apart and see how silly THAT looks -- maybe you'll understand why your Sandy Hook Truther and DHS Bullet Buying conspiracies are so silly, too.

"weapons that are manufactured solely for the intent
of killing a lot of people"
So since you're the experienced, all-knowing LIBERAL gun owner, tell me how the operation of an AR-15 is ANY different than that of a Ruger Mini-14.
They use EXACTLY the same ammunition, both have barrels about 18 inches long, they are both semi-automatic (ONE round for each pull of the trigger).
So tell me...I'm waiting.
Oooh! I know! One looks like a regular non-threatening hunting rifle while the other has that REALLY SCARY-looking pistol grip stock.
You people are so dense it's surprising you can tie your shoes without help.
The AR-15 and its clones were manufactured for EXACTLY THE SAME REASON that compact cars with small engines are fitted with spoilers, air dams, fender bulges, radical paint schemes, etc....and that is to appeal to buyers. It DOES NOT turn these wimpy cars into NASCAR racers...and neither does a pistol-grip stock turn a semi-automatic civilian rifle into a so-called (albeit dishonestly) "assault" weapon.
Try being honest for a change...if just with yourself.

I can be honest...
You are honestly mentally deficient. An AR-15 can be rigged to unload a full clip automatically in just a few seconds. Check out youtube...several videos available. Again, any weapon that can hold more than a few rounds should be banned. And MP, I agree with background checks. Just forgot to put them in. Machine guns were outlawed in the '30s, sawed off shotguns are illegal and the Supreme Court has agreed that not all weapons should be available to the public. You still haven't given me a reason why anyone should have weapons that are manufactured with the intent of killing a lot of people in a short amount of time. It's time for you to be honest, but I honestly don't believe it is in your DNA.

As long as you're hung up on dishonest, incendiary and politically-motivated phraseology we'll never have a rational discussion.
But I know that. I've been trying to conduct honest debates with left wingers for decades. It's just not in their DNA.

Perhaps the NRA's Adam Lanza...
could educate cruzo on a bit of gun history.
Afterall, it took him less than five minutes to fire 154 rounds into 20 small children and 6 adults with an AR-15.
The AR-15 was built as a military prototype, designed for the sole purpose of killing a lot of people in a short amount of time. It was not designed to be a hunting rifle. It was not designed to be a target rifle. It was designed specifically for killing a lot of people in a short time.
The NRA's Adam Lanza proved that point at Sandy Hook.

cruise; Seriously. WHO CARES?
"tell me how the operation of an AR-15 is ANY different than that of a Ruger Mini-14." That has absolutely nothing to do with anything whatsoever.
"Oooh! I know! One looks like a regular non-threatening hunting rifle while the other has that REALLY SCARY-looking pistol grip stock." That has absolutely nothing to do with anything whatsoever.
And yes, I went to their 'shopping site'.
All four models look pretty damn scary to me. But that's not the point. You're totally missing the point. The point is why the hell does someone need a weapon to kill varmints with 154 rounds in a few minutes.
If you don't want to answer that, fine, keep quiet. But please stop hurling around insults at people when you simply disagree. It's annoying.

you're not making an effort because you can't.
The AR-15 was designed to kill a lot of people fast. That is it's specific, specialized purpose.
And the NRA's Adam Lanza proved it's point.

solely for the intent of killing a lot of people
Name one, just ONE firearm developed for killing a lot of people!
Okay, it was the AR-15, designed by Armalite Rifle to give soldiers more firepower and accuracy, plus the weapon and the ammo were much lighter. Spray and pray!
But the Ruger Mini 14 which was called a Ranch Rifle.
Wouldn't you rather be gunned down in a mass shooting by a Ranch Rifle than an AR-15?
It's like you're being killed by John Wayne pardner!
