Regardless of your opinion on the great gun debate that has again resurfaced, the National Rifle Association (the "NRA") and its members have to be applauded for their determination and drive in fighting for rights vested by the United States Constitution. The NRA is perhaps the most influential lobbying organization in the United States. When the NRA talks, legislators listen. Legislators listen because there are between three and four million members in the NRA and those millions of members regularly go to the polls and vote. The Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings were tragic beyond description and certainly provide a legitimate reason to re-examine gun safety issues. Re-examining those issues has caused a swell of national news coverage and invoked provocative debates across America. I wish the same were true with victims' rights because debates are good. At a minimum, debates demonstrate that people care.
