I don't think so.
Any politician who was formerly endorsed by the NRA, and who now chooses to cross the NRA will be history. That's why being a single issue organization is smart. It keeps the weak sisters in the GOP from bailing on the NRA.
Two Years ago there were rallies all across this country to stop Obamacare.
The response by elected officials was to come out with smug little smirks on their faces, arm in arm as they walked to vote “yes” on it anyway.
There was a temporary fall out - they lost 2010.
And they came back big in 2012.
Why would they fear the NRA? The NRA has endorsed all kinds of RINOs and moderates over the past few years. Joe Manchin comes to mind.
You don’t think gun control is going to pass? I’ll bet you any amount of money it does. It will probably be an act of Congress. But if it’s not, it’ll be an international treaty or executive order.
I’m sorry - the American people voted themselves out.
We were also told no way obamacare would be law of the land, yet it is. They have the power now. I hope you are correct in your thinking on this.
I hope you are right the NRA has been known to fold under political pressure. Like during the Bubba days even Bush 41 sent his membership back that time with Dingleberry.
