NRA: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)

According to two students who survived the high school shooting last month in Parkland, Florida, the leadership of the NRA has “basically threatened” them since they started speaking out about gun violence. The NRA has now reached the point where they are threatening children.

The NRA wasn’t always an extremist organization. Several years ago, the NRA was well known for promoting gun safety, and the proper use of firearms. UCLA law professor Adam Winkler stated, “Historically, the leadership of the NRA was more open-minded about gun control than someone familiar with the modern NRA might imagine.”

In the following video, John Oliver shows what the NRA has become. He discusses how the NRA works to stop gun control laws, and how they work to block informed discussions about gun control.
