Should it be legal for NRA to view our messages?
Debate Rounds (2)
NRA-the National Rifle Association
message-a communication containing some information, news, advice, request, or the like, sent by messenger, radio, telephone, or other means.
"I believe Amendment V of the U.S. Constitution protects our rights of privacy"
Not all communications containing information are private. Some messages are intended for public viewing. There is no reason for the NRA to be blocked from viewing these.
"Worst part: We, the people, were not notified of this action. It took a whistleblower to give the public a general denotation of an infringing program."
Which whistleblower was this? I have heard of whistleblowers on the NSA viewing private messages, but the NRA? Not that I know of.
"Yes, I understand it is there to protect us from terrorism,"
The purpose of the NRA is to protect gun rights, not to protect people from terrorism.
"but couldn't our GOVERNMENT at least address the state of this program?"
I don't see why NRA members reading messages would be the government's business, so long as they aren't using illegal methods to do so.
"From my point of view: I felt violated when I heard that this was going on!"
Not sure how to respond to that...
"Why should the government be spying on its own people?"
The NRA is not a government organization, and I don't know of any spying by them.
In conclusion, NRA members have as much right as anyone else to view messages provided they are not doing it in illegal ways and the messages are not private.
