Let me elaborate. The MEANING the NRA gives for the 2nd Amendment and
it's purpose is wrong. Sure, they know what it means, but they don't
convey that meaning because people would tend to label them antigov't.
They want to put forth a softer persona.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and
hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless
series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
