You're apparently the National Assault Weapons Ban Association ... see quote from the 2012 Democratic National Platform, which your NRA A+ Rated, Endorsed Hero Joe Manchin supported by running as a democRat.
Quit trying to defend the indefensible. You, and the NRA in general, would be far better off to admit that you screwed up. It would have the benefit of being honest.
look at our results. We have been hugely successful in advancing the second amendment issue for firearms owners of all stripes. It is UNDENIABLE. I can’t think of a more successful lobbying group in fact-the AARP maybe. No, after watching the pitiful political game Republicans played in the 2012 elections, I’ll never question the NRA’s strategy.
