Hardly a smear, but a lie nonetheless.

“Today it is arguably the most powerful lobbying organization in the nation’s capital and certainly one of the most feared. There is no single secret to its success, but what liberals loathe about the NRA is a key part of its power. These are the people who say no”.

The facts, less than ten years after the Revolt at Cinncinati the 1986 gun control act passed, followed by the assault weapons ban, and it will not ever stop. NO thanks to the NRA.

The NRA portrays itself as a bipartisan organization. IMHO there is no such thing where human rights are concerned. There are two sides to an issue generally, RIGHT, and WRONG, and the NRA has been on the wrong side of gun control since their inception way back in 18 seventy something.

The revolt was very short lived if it ever had any life. The NRA is the poster child for Mainstream, and remains so.

Hunting and safety are the key elements in their program when every dime should be at work protecting what the founding fathers worked so diligently and millions of dead patriots shed their blood, trying to protect.

It is a complete mystery why four or so million americans support this travesty, until one considers the latest election, then it is mystery no longer.

NAGR, GOA, SAF, JPFO Second Amendment Sisters, all do a much better job attempting to secure and preserve our GOD GIVEN RIGHTS, than the organization in question. Just think of the power if each one had four million members. Might even result in the NRA getting it, after a hundred and forty years.

The 1986 gun control law allowed us to get back some of the rights lost in the 1968 travesty.

Now we can purchase rifles, shotguns and ammo across state lines, something the 1968 GCL banned. Still can’t buy handguns across state lines.

We did lose the right to buy new made taxable registered machine guns.
