It's pretty obvious that John is one of those who hold the belief that having a family member killed is basically the same as having a law degree or a graduate degree in CJ when it comes to understanding the criminal and legal climate in America.

Walsh said the NRA is so deeply in the pocket of the gun industry that “they're not a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, they're a gun manufacturer rep.” He also said Vice President Joe Biden recently agreed with him that politicians are “scared s—less” of the NRA.It's amazing that the absolutely AstroTurf gun control movement clings to this myth about the NRA, a member-driven organization. Does it make them feel better about being bankrolled entirely by a couple-few jillionaires, if they can imagine their political opponents as being bankrolled by evil big companies?
Don't anybody ever point out to these people how small the gun industry actually is**.
