Fairfax, Va. - Expanding background checks at gun shows will not prevent the next shooting, will not solve violent crime and will not keep our kids safe in schools. While the overwhelming rejection of President Obama and Mayor Bloomberg's "universal" background check agenda is a positive development, we have a broken mental health system that is not going to be fixed with more background checks at gun shows. The sad truth is that no background check would have prevented the tragedies in Newtown, Aurora or Tucson. We need a serious and meaningful solution that addresses crime in cities like Chicago, addresses mental health deficiencies, while at the same time protecting the rights of those of us who are not a danger to anyone. President Obama should be as committed to dealing with the gang problem that is tormenting honest people in his hometown as he is to blaming law-abiding gun owners for the acts of psychopathic murderers.

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than four million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services. Be sure to follow the NRA on Facebook at and on Twitter @NRA.

Prairie, I guess I have lived in the bliss of ignorance, as you call, for 81 years. I grew up poor in the 30's and 40's, survived a hellatious tour of duty in Korea during the early 50's without getting shot, came home and... More ›

Puzzled....First, it's the business of no one to know what citizens own guns. Second, why does the government want this information ? Third, will a large data base of gun owners make you or I more safe. An incident... More ›

Just read where Sen Murphy of Conn. is asking Fox to not air the NRA 500 NASCAR race. Nattering nannies of negativity.
