    Unions charge more than administrational costs so that they have a slush-fund they can use to pay their members if they ever need to strike. It's the main idea of a union, to use the capital of the union to support the members if they need to strike but still need to pay for food and rent.
    The fact that you might not know this just shows that you are uneducated on how unions work and why they exist.

    Are you suggesting that GOP political body from the State to the Federal levels would ever sign off on stricter gun control laws of any kind? If you truly believe that then man do I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn. Republicans as a whole will never go for any stricter gun control laws and in fact want to abolish already existing gun control laws. Hell Texas is working on and other states have passed unliscensed open carry laws in there states so people can be strapped wherever they go in the state. Any shooting no matter how big or tragic Republicans refuse to budge. Hell after Sandy Hook and an entire First Grade class was murdered by a single guy with a gun Republicans as a whole shrugged their shoulders and proclaimed to the world "We already offered thoughts and prayers, what more could be done?" then went off to wag their fingers in shame at Democrats for "politicizing" the massacre of an entire First Grade Class.

    You.... you what mate? You're accusing all unions of being criminal for violating laws that only exist in your head? That isn't how it works. That's not how ANY of this works.

    It's the entire organization. Not just individuals. Again, stop defending criminals and criminal organizations just because you're politically bias. You're not for law and order at all. Your posts claiming you are is a joke.

    They have no desire to see gun control become a boiling frog.

    Unions charge more people than just their members though. I really don't care how much a union charges its members.

    You really think the GOP would not trade universal background checks for a prohibition on any further restrictions on firearms?

    Actually there are laws concerning how much unions can charge non-members.

    If you can prosecute the individuals, there is no need to bother with the organization, as all guilty parties will be dealt with. I don't believe in hiding behind an organization to avoid prosecution.
