“Is the NRA responsible for the defeat of every candidate they endorse that loses?”
No, they are not. But they’d have to be blind not to see that Harry Reid is not the “conservative” democrat he claimed he was. He’s a militant leftist who’s the majority leader of the senate and democrats are always anti-gun. Reid played just enough to get their endorsement. Wanna bet that an assault weapons ban will somehow come up for a vote in the Senate while they “haven’t had time” for lots of other legislation, budget, jobs, etc.
Please, at least make a lame attempt to mask your ignorance.
Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms . The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible.
