So the NRA gave the Republicans 54 million dollars worth of advertising while the Democrats received $265.00, that's right, $265.00 for the Dems. Since Elon Musk left Donald Trump's inner circle of advisors recently due to differences of opinion, perhaps it's time for Elon to step up to the plate and give that 54 Million dollars himself to the Republicans so they won't need to depend on the NRA's donations. This madness has to stop and shutting out the NRA would be a good step in the right direction. The 2nd amendment, as I understand it, says Americans have the right to bear arms. I get it. However, when it was written centuries ago, it meant that Americans can carry the weapon of the day, a pistol. Nowhere did it mention automatic sub machine guns. They weren't even invented yet. So, without amending the 2nd amendment, just make it illegal for anyone to own machine guns, period. This keeps the 2nd amendment alive by allowing individuals who desire to own a weapon to do so, but restricting them to a pistol type only. The world would be a much safer place and the NRA can disband, or change its name to the "National Pistol Association"! NPA for short!
