In the United States, the National Rifle Association is a powerful force in shaping the gun culture.
As such, it has created a massive network of gun shops across the country, allowing them to serve both the law-abiding gun owners who want to own a gun but don’t want to risk their lives in a mass shooting and the mass shooters who want a firearm but don, in the NRA lingo, “buy it for the thrill.”
There are many gun shops in America, but many are located in the wrong places, and they can lead to disaster.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, a lobbying organization for the National Shooting Sport Foundation, estimates that the NRA alone spent $2.7 billion on lobbying and other political activity in the first six months of 2017.
And that figure includes the NRA-backed lobbying efforts of gun-control groups, like Everytown for Gun Safety and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, as well as the efforts of other gun-safety groups, including Everytown’s PAC.
The NRA has also worked hard to expand its reach, especially in states where gun ownership is low.
For example, in 2015, NRA-sponsored ads were used in nearly 50 percent of New Hampshire gun sales.
In 2014, the NRA spent more than $300,000 in advertising in Colorado to boost support for Colorado’s Amendment 64, which would have banned the manufacture, sale, and transfer of handguns and assault weapons.
This year, the organization has expanded its reach even further.
The New York Times reports that the organization plans to spend nearly $1.4 million in the next three months to push the same measures in states that have voted to legalize recreational marijuana.
“The NRA is a key player in influencing the states that legalize marijuana,” the Times notes.
The groups efforts to get lawmakers to support legalization of recreational marijuana in states like Colorado and Washington have failed, but the NRA is determined to succeed in getting its agenda on the ballot in the states where recreational marijuana is legal.
The organization has already spent more money than any other gun group in the country on electioneering in a dozen states.
In fact, the group has spent nearly $6 million on election ads in nine states, and spent more on election advertising in the last year than any single gun group.
So, while gun stores like WalMart may not be the safest places to shop, the gun shop lobby isn’t the worst.
The gun shop is a dangerous place, but there are ways to avoid it.
There are plenty of ways to make sure your kid never gets a gun.
First, don’t buy a gun at a gun shop.
Everygunstore.com has a handy guide to preventing gun violence.
Second, never buy a firearm at a home.
This can also be a good idea, as the National Institute of Justice estimates that “one in five Americans is living in an apartment or condo and that home-invasion homicides account for half of all gun homicides.”
Third, shop at gun stores that don’t sell firearms.
The best way to avoid a gun store is to avoid them altogether.
The Washington Post reports that in 2013, there were nearly 2.5 million firearm sales at gun shops, with the majority of them happening in the home.
“At most gun shops,” the Post reports, “you can see the gun and the ammunition.
There’s no need to go out to buy them.”
The Post points out that the “gun show loophole” has led to some of the worst gun violence in the United State, with some stores selling guns to the public and others charging high fees for those who bring guns in for “shopping” or “treats.”
Gun shows are not illegal in the U.S. — they are licensed and regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
But the Washington Post points to the fact that gun shows have become increasingly popular in the years since the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012 as one of the main reasons for the rise of gun shows.
It’s also worth noting that there are some very good gun shows in the state of Georgia, and in a number of other states, like Ohio and Texas.
The Post notes that the gun show loophole also played a role in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, in December, 2012, when Adam Lanza opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle on schoolchildren.
There is no evidence that gun show loopholes led to the Newtown massacre.
But gun shows can be a very dangerous place to go if you have kids.
For one thing, if you’re not familiar with the rules of gun safety, it can be easy to get yourself into a dangerous situation.
It was a common practice to bring guns into gun shows and the NRA has been criticized for not making the safety protocols more stringent.
