Moot point—I think the NRA just learned they have absolutely no clout in DC anymore.
Including 80 million or so gun owners just found out we have no clout any longer in Washington DC, even with our own senators & reps. I guess we really are at war with the socialist bastards (both demoRATS & Repubs) in DC. I wonder when this will turn into the real thing. I pray that Texas & 12-14 southern & western states will declare that enough is enough, and it is now time to secede from the USSA Amerika.
Let's look at that. How did the oldest civil rights organization in the country become persona non grata?
The media have been waging war on the NRA, painting the NRA and members as "extremists", "kooks", and even worse, "Unfeeling".
If y'all want to play along with the demonization of the NRA, the inevitable result will be that the organization will take the abandonment of members and donors as a sign that people believe what the media has said, and will moderate its stance in order to survive. The organization lives on donations and memberships, too.
Now is the time when every membership check, every donation, every communication with the NRA should carry a message of NO COMPROMISE from the people, just as every communication with Congress should.
You can bet your bottom dollar the "great organizer" has his community of Communists, useful idiots, the MSM, and fellow travelers out there doing the full court press for their ultimate wet dream--disarming the American people.
There are a lot of keyboard commandos who spout nonsense from their fingertips about WW III, CW II, or even another American Revolution, but won't take the time to and effort to even e-mail their Congress critters.
If that shoe fits, pull yer frigging head out and get after it using every peaceful means at your disposal to turn the tide of public opinion, including posting to websites, letters to Congress, letters to the editor, supporting the Gun Rights organization of your choice--and not wasting time cutting the others down.
Screw worrying about being on a list, you already are.
There are a lot of people out there who are ticked off at this crap but who are feeling isolated and alone in that. Don't let us all get Alinsky'd.
IF we can't stop this before things get ugly, they'll get real ugly, and they won't be pretty ever again in my lifetime.
And if you won't bother to write a letter or make a call now, then I know you won't have my back if the SHTF.
