Much of the western United States is tinder dry as the result of a prolonged drought. Wildfires are breaking out throughout Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah at an alarming rate; many caused by people taking target practice in remote areas covered in tinder dry grass. The resulting fires have cost millions, yet the shooters are not going to let that get in the way of their second amendment rights.
It seems the states can ban campfires, even camping, but they dont dare ask a gun owner to hold his fire until the drought eases. They cant even ask them to confine their shooting to gun ranges thanks to the National Rifle Association. You see, the NRA vehemently refuses to accept any restrictions on guns, no matter how many people are needlessly killed. No matter how much damage their rights cause to others.
As long as politicians continue to fear the NRA, we can forget about common sense gun laws. Although NRA members have an abundance of guns, ammo and political influence, they’re entirely lacking in common sense.
