I will kill any tax legislation that benefits @Delta unless the company changes its position and fully reinstates its relationship with @NRA. Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.

Why You Should Join
The truth of the matter is that only 6 of the past 96 mass shootings involved an AR-15. Even in this Mother Jones article which outlined these mass shootings and the weapons used admits this. All rifles, including the AR-15 kill 379 people per year while knives kill 1,600 – Blunt Objects kill 472 – and medical malpractice kill 250,00. There was also already a ban on the AR-15 from 1994 to 2004 and still 16 mass shootings happened including Columbine. Almost every single person at that town hall blamed the NRA and the AR-15 for the recent school shooting in Parkland Florida. But it was really the fault of the police who were warned multiple times, the FBI who were warned multiple times and the Sheriff’s deputies who were too cowardly to even go into the school while kids were getting shot.
With all that being said, the hundreds of thousands of people calling for a ban on the AR-15 are either really low IQ, or secretly just want to ban ALL firearms and repeal the second amendment. Im going to go with the latter but also say that they are low IQ. This is why you should join the NRA now. Sign up for 2 years, it is well worth it!
