Animals  (tags: stray dogs, cats, slaughtered, gunned down, animal cruelty, authorites )

NRA members in Mississippi and elsewhere have been caught using stray dogs and cats for target practice. I have heard no comment from NRA leadership calling for this to stop nor any indication that they care at all. This is appalling and has to stop

It is tragic that many cruel people have guns because often times they practice on living target- and these are the ones that are the most week and vulnerable! The NRA top executives don't seem to care much about living, sentient beings! They should severely condemn these horrific actions and take action to see that these demented people are prosecuted, held accountable, and have their membership terminated! But, they never take the right action because all they're concerned about is making money by the proliferation of guns in our society no matter what the consequences! The CEO and executives of the NRA are morally bankrupt people!

NRA members are a fraction of the U.S. population yet have the most power. Where is the justice? When is my voice going to start counting? I'm sick of gun-happy morons and cattle ranchers running the decisions in this country. "We The People" means more than just people who kill things with guns and folks who eat steaks and hamburgers.

Huntingdon Life Sciences, a laboratory that AstraZeneca has worked with in the past, is notorious for its poor standards and shocking treatment of animals. Undercover investigations have found repeated animal welfare violations, with recorded instances





Comment:








For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

I've never seen karma work on those that do so much harm so I don't believe it. Many who buy guns do for the purpose of using them on live targets...thats the thrill that they're looking for. If it wasn't for the laws that exist...they be shooting at anybody they didn't like.

Unfortunately there have always been sadistic men and women who use stray and wild animals for target practice. Remember, It's a sin to kill a mockingbird, but plenty of people do. But to think that the NRA, who should at least be trying to appear humane, doesn't go on record as condemning the pratice... one more reason to feel the group is comprised of arrogant *ss-h*les.
