Today the National Shooting Sports Foundation AKA the NSSF which is the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industries voted to expel Dick’s Sporting Goods (and Field and Stream Stores) from membership due to pro-gun control activities which are contrary to the goals of the NSSF.

Way to go NSSF. Who will expel them next?
I find it ridiculous that in the USA we have lost common sense and think that firearms are the problem when its painfully obvious that we have a serious social problem in this country that goes much deeper than more firearm controls that have never proven to resolve any issues.
I don’t fully grasp the concept that, in the USA, the ‘tool’ is to blame for an act that was perpetrated by a human. Should we institute controls for any item that is used to harm another person? For example, rocks, bricks, baseball bats, rope, duct tape,exploding mobile phones and etc.
I hope we can find a common sense solution that works…
