    Found this article and fact-checked it. Pretty interesting stuff:

    SOURCE: Israel: NRA Is Lying About Our Gun Laws | National Confidential
    SOURCE 2: Both Parties (And Israel) Wary Of NRA’s School Safety Plan | FDL News Desk
    SOURCE 3: Israelis shoot down NRA's claim that the Jewish State uses more weapons to keep schools safe - NY Daily News

    Color me humbled. I always assumed that most Israelis were armed since they live in the middle of a part of the world that hates them.

    NRA and GOP not going to let a little matter of fact checking get in the way of their statements.

    The NRA really scares the hell out of some of you... They should, seeing how Bill Clinton admitted he lost an election because of them.

    Yes, the NRA with the attitude they have at present represent a danger to the public in general. The proliferation of guns with zero controls has led to the insanity we have seen in the last few weeks. The murder of the firemen now have added another dimension to the NRA's war on our children and emergency responders.

    Not scared of the NRA (they have a right to an opinion just like everyone else), just pointing out that according to Israel LaPierre is wrong.

    Nice attempt at misdirection, but the only relevant question is whether the Israelis have armed guards at their schools. Do they?

    Governments have killed more people with guns than any other entity.

    The proliferation of government should scare the juice out of any sane person.

    The insanity has to stop!
