adding categories[edit]

I added an "entry point" category tag, but it didn't show up in the category links at the bottom of the page. is there a bug here, stemming from the presence of the "uspolitics" template, which adds a category link? Rand0 (talk) 10:16, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

NRA membership[edit]

This article pegs the NRA membership at 5 million (to the GOA's 300k). The NRA article specifically calls out the membership number of 4M for likely being inflated and at a maximum 3.1M. Do we have any solid sources for current enrollment? Collinius (talk) 17:47, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

I'd say correct it to something citable - David Gerard (talk) 18:49, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Relevant quote[edit]

Somewhere in this series the Rowan Atkinson character says that those who want gun licences are the ones who should not have them. (talk) 16:48, 23 May 2018 (UTC)

Political positions and activities[edit]

Is there a better source for Larry Pratt being a white supremacist? The SLPC's reputation has really taken some hits in the past couple years, using them as a source is verging on creating a strawman. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
