"If sizable numbers of NRA members become gun-victims themselves, maybe hope for legislation of firearms?" doesn't anyone think that perhaps these tragedies don't occur to gun owners families because they are gun owners? I checked ti out, statistics prove that more of these tragedies happen in gun free zones. Check out the school in Tx that allows teachers to have a licensed firearm on them at all times while in school. Or the town that requires head of households to own a gun; they have not been hit by terrorists since implementing these plans.
