I have chosen the Nation Rifle Association as the website that most of all typifies the contemporary state of America. The NRA are dedicated to protecting America's second amendment rights allowing citizens to legally own fire arms for their own purposes. On the website they quote from a speech George Stephanopoulos gave saying "Let me make one small vote for the NRA. They're good citizens. They call their Congressmen. They write. They vote. They contribute. And they get what they want over time." This statement to me symbolizes that members of the NRA aren't lunatic psycho's that just go around shooting up where ever they feel, its that they are concerned citizens who's only agenda is to protect themselves and their families by fighting and protecting their constitutional rights. If anything this statement shows that members of the NRA are more concerned for their country as they are so involved in politics and by keeping in touch with their congressmen and voting they represent the proportion of Americans who will vote for what changes or not they want to see in their country. I think this is a really interesting website and there's a lot of information on it about the kind of work that goes into protecting American second Amendment rights. I feel this website typifies America because a general view in America is preserving the peoples rights of the constitution as that is what America was founded on.
