Did the NRA sell out other gun rights organizations? Not so fast...


  • TCSF 5 years ago

    I am a life member of the NRA and have followed the NRA for decades. They are neither shrewd nor risk takers. They always play it safe. They took the exemption from this law because they were scared of another fight. Just like they were scared to bring the Heller lawsuit which was left to others. Instead of standing as a titan in the history of the defense of gun owners' civil rights they will go down in history as a mere footnote to this case. Now, in another critical showdown, they cut and run again.

    They stated in a recent email to their membership that their members were their first priority. Organizational survival has become more important than the Bill of Rights. Well, America can survive the loss of the former, but not the latter.

    You can't rely on a soldier who is more concerned about his personal survival than the cause for which he fights. And to quote Martin Luther King, "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends

    Wow talk about a stretch. Is Obama really interested in bringing back the assault weapons ban in order that it can be overturned by the supreme court and forever protect our freedoms? PERHAPS. What a shrewd man. Let's get real, the NRA has been selling out for several years now starting with vets.

    while there are NRA apologists that support/defend the NRA no matter what, the idea that the NRA's president and other officers intended to kill this bill by getting themselves an exemption is just so absurd that only a fool could actually believe that. Not everyone is gullible enough to swallow such pap. I have been an NRA member since my dad signed me up when I was a child. My membership will lapse since I now have no intention of renewing it.

    Q. Did the NRA "sell out gun owners?"?
    A. Yes

    NRA did not drop their opposition to the bill! Read their June 17 public statement, they still opposed the bill. As another life member, I would hope we check their web site and actual facts, not flagrant lies from people with ulterior motives.

    Oh Dan, what a shame. I have been a consistent reader of yours for as long as you have been here. This is the first time I ever had reason to question your reliability. There can be no, NO justification for what NRA has done. This is not their first betrayal by a damn sight, but it is the most publicly despicable.

    Do you wish to back up and reassess what you said and just accept the harsh truth that NRA is loaded with traitorous bastards who are really in the gun control business, and evidently now speech control?

    I think that would be a good use of your abilities.

    Whether or not this legislation is overturned by the supreme court or not - and that could take 10 years - the damage will have been done by this November. That's all that counts to these people.
