Why Is The Nra Against Background Checks?

I guess something i don’t understand is, why does the NRA continue to deny the need for background checks on private firearm sales?
Every few months there is a new school shooting, Sandyhook, Santa Monica College, Aurora movie theater, Virginia tech, etc. And each one of them was linked to some form of mental illness.
Don’t get me wrong, i believe every American should be able to own a gun, but i believe they must be mentally sane in order to have that right. But why do people oppose this? Im lost.

    Because the NRA receives tens of millions every year from gun manufacturers. Every time a law is passed which limits the ability of people to carry weapons, the NRA loses money.

  2. Mango says:

    look at the IRS…pretty obvious why they don’t want background checks.

  3. Latvian Farmer says:

    One word: money. Increased background checks means less people able to buy guns, which means less money for the NRA.

  4. RiteWnge says:

    None of the shootings you mentioned would have been stopped by a background check. None of them had been adjudicated insane by a court and a background check would have shown nothing.
    The NRA opposes background checks because; as a quick read of the news for the last two weeks would attest to, the government tends to abuse every power it gets.
