MOTSS

more of the same ——

This guy has even entered into anti-gun efforts on occasion. How does the NRA trust a guy like that? Talk about your battered wife syndrome.

A bone-headed move. I would never have become a life member if I knew they would pull a stunt like this.

Now you know why I tossed the NRA out on the heap years ago. I remember one time back in 2008, getting a call from some NRA fundraiser, and giving them a sound earlashing about how worthless their organisation was for refusing to support one of the two conservative candidates in the GOP Presidential primary that year.

I will maintain my NRA base membership, but effective immediately, I will no longer give to any of the NRA ancillary causes and special fundraisers.

That’s fine. I just don’t think it’s good when people knee-jerk towards a generally conservative group/person because one particular thing sets them off.

Even when that "one particular thing" is the endorsement of Benedict Arnold?

Honestly, it hasn’t been just one thing. We pay quite a bit of money to the NRA, and it gets us very little.

The media plays it up that the NRA is a terrible organization, because they know that will convince many people to support an organization that doesn’t give them nearly the grief it is pretended they do.

Yes, once in a while the NRA does hit one out. Sadly they strike out hundreds of times in-between. And all to often they refuse to go to the plate on top of that.

Well, he should be. Sadly, he’s not having to run all that fast, what with well meaning idiot Republicans fawning all over him.

Hasn’t McLame always supported increased restrictions on gun shows? Sometimes the NRA baffles me. I understand there are a LOT of politics involved and calculations involving chances of winning, etc, but at some point this organization needs to follow through on its claimed convictions. I say this as an NRA member for 10 years.

You are so understated.

I called him Benedict Arnold. Is that what tipped you off?

Frankly, I probably owe Benedict Arnold an apology. At least before he turned traitor he was known for more than having horses shot out from under him.

I will let the NRA know that I will not renew my membership. I will not support any organization that supports RINO’s, especially a RINO that would in a heartbeat compromise my 2nd Amendment rights if he thought he could draw political gain.

NRA has their heads collectively up their asses.

So did Sarah Palin. She not only endorsed him, she came out and held a rally for him and got thousands onto his RINO bandwagon.

I just joined the NRA a few months ago. There was a 5 page piece on Harry Reid’s ‘heroic’ efforts in procuring land for a range in Nevada.

And now this???

No, I don’t, but in these days of the Internet, that doesn’t mean as much. At least you guys don’t have Jim Moran as your representatives until probably he dies (as in my case).

Agreed. After Wayne headed out to support Harry Reid during Searchlight, I knew it was no longer acting in the best interest of the 2nd Amendment. I’m switching loyalty to Gun Owners of America.

That’s why I wish a fresh person stepped into the primary. Both McCain and J.D. carry baggage. It just boils down to which you want to deal with.

It's a similar situation with Brewer.

(after SB1070) "Brewer is awesome!"

(after McCain endorsement) "Brewer is a RINO!!!"
