NRA vs. GOA: Gun-rights groups clash on background check legislation

As the NICS Improvement Act of 2005 (H.R. 1415) makes it’s way through congress, firearm owners wondering if this is good or bad legislation may look to pro-gun groups for direction. Unfortunately, they may only wind up more confused in this instance. According to Gun Owners of America, the bill purportedly intended to improve the National Instant Criminal Background Check System is a “monstrosity” that will “further prop up the unconstitutional Brady Law” and lay “the infrastructure for even more gun control in the future." The NRA, however, says it will expedite the background-checking process and improve the system, resulting in fewer “wrongful denials.” Anybody got a coin?
