Gun violence is an everyday occurrence in many cities in the united states, but after a tragedy like the Aurora  shootings or the Virginia Tech shootings, the gun control debate starts to make more noise on the socio-political landscape.  The second amendment typically divides parties and beliefs, but are gun control laws starting to divide the N.R.A itself? The National Rifle Association is a major player in keeping the Second Amendment exactly how it is for better or worse. However Cliff Schecter of Salon.com writes in a recent article that there’s a schism between the leaders of the N.R.A. and its members when it comes to tightening up and fixing of loop holes in our current gun control laws.
