CE recently received a fundraising call from the NRA. CE agreed to make a contribution on the condition that the NRA’s policy included the requirement for background checks including mental health background checks prior to anyone obtaining a gun and a 30 day waiting period to perform the background checks. CE also conditioned a donation on annual mandatory continuing education requirements to maintain a gun license and further that each gun be registered with local law enforcement agencies.
To CE’s surprise the NRA representative (who declined to be named in this post) agreed with the above in its entirety.
As CE’s father often said, “where there’s life there’s hope”
