Posted on 04/11/2014 3:03:52 PM PDT by bkopto
U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell now has an endorsement to go with his gun.
The National Rifle Association's political action committee announced Friday it has endorsed McConnell in the May 20 Republican primary. McConnell made headlines last month when he appeared at the Conservative Political Action Conference waving a rifle over his head. The rifle was a lifetime achievement award McConnell presented to U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma.
In a news release, NRA Political Victory Fund chairman Chris Cox called McConnell a true champion of the Second Amendment.
Likely Democratic nominee Alison Lundergan Grimes mocked McConnell, saying he was holding the gun wrong and tweeted: "KY women do it better."
The Gun Owners of America has endorsed McConnell's GOP primary challenger Matt....
Oops. Here’s the link:
I haven’t had an issue of American Rifleman delivered in about two years.
Coincidentally, it was about the time the NRA cossied(SP?) up to Harry Reid to get the shooting complex in Vegas over the finish line.
Principle counts? Sometimes.
Gun Owners of America
1. McConnell voted to fund ObamaCare and other anti-gun measures.
2. McConnell opposed Rand Pauls attempts to nix the registration of gun records. On May 26, 2011, the U.S. Senate defeated an amendment offered by Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) to protect the privacy of gun owners.
3. McConnell supported the Cover-up Protection Act. On June 29, 2011, the Senate voted to pass S. 679, the Cover-Up Protection Act, by a vote of 79-20.
4. McConnell opposed defunding anti-gun ObamaCare (first filibuster).
5. McConnell opposed defunding anti-gun ObamaCare (second filibuster).
6. McConnell opposed defunding anti-gun ObamaCare (final passage).
This seriously makes me want to not renew!!
Yeah, I got the post card in the mail inviting me. Had to resist the temptation to call and say something rude.
They are all whores, just a matter of finding the right price.
They’re whores, they’re screwing me, and somehow I just don’t find it pleasurable.
And why does this surprise Freepers? The NRA endorsed Harry Dingbat’ Reid for crying out loud. Ah, who cares. I’ll get into another flame war with the Freeper NRA ass-slurpers...
Sure. Former GOP House of Representatives from California, and former head of the SEC.
He's as GOPe as they come.
Such a pathetic fail. Mitch has undermined gun rights.
And THIS is why I dropped my NRA membership and donations several years ago. They will endorse AND PROMOTE the most liberal incumbent if that incumbent votes for the 2nd amendment side of several selected votes. The NRA pays no mind to the fact that they are supporting someone who will allow anti-2nd amendment activists to be approved for high level LIFETIME federal judicial appointments—including to the Supreme Court.
We dropped them several years ago when they endorsed Chet Edwards, Nancy Pelosi’s pet Texan.
How did he vote on the last two Supreme Ct appointments.
The NRA needs to stay out of GOP primaries!
Which is why I also belong to GOA and JPFO, and my state gun rights organization, Bama Carry.
I decided some months ago that when my membership runs out this year, that's it. I'm going over to Gun Owners of America. The NRA does not represent my political viewpoints.
No flame war with me Max. The NRA has as a board member, you read that right....a board member!!!, (and has had for a long time), an operative involved with the Muslim Brotherhood and also a VERY heavy hitter for the Muslim terrorist front group, C.A.I.R.............Grover Norquist. This/their endorsement is just more proof that the NRA is not what some believe it to be.
Sir they are not whores, whores like sex and do it for free, these people are prostitutes.......hope I cleared this up for you.....we don’t want to give whores a bad name...
That’s when I quit
You’re confusing whores with sluts. Whores and prostitutes are the same thing.
Gun Owners of America, they stand on principles.
Plus the JPFO lapel pin makes liberal heads explode.
Regretably, the NRA endorses lousy candidates all the time. They are especially ready to endorse powerful politicians with lots of clout, pretty much regardless of what they stand for.
WOW - WOW this bears repeating::::::;

lol, at my age you may be right
They support abortion, if it's done with a gun.
It is the reason I left ‘em 5 years ago when I found out about it. When I called to confirm if it was true, (Hoping it was not), and questioned an rep/agent of theirs, I heard this exact reply: “Sir, the NRA does not care what it’s board members do on their own time”. End quote. Nice huh? GOA for me!!
I became a lifer of the NRA back in 94. Hasn’t done a bit of good.
Here we go again. Should the NRA examine the broader spectrum of candidate issues or be constrained to the 2nd Amendment?
Ok, I am done with NRA contributions. PERIOD!! No mas.
Just when they get it right, they break it.
Bevin threw himself under the bus. I really don’t see an alternative for NRA, or anybody else. The cockfighting thing pretty well did it for Bevin.
There’s no good guy in that race. Matt Bevin is a pro-amnesty phony.
I could be mistaken, but I believe that ultimately the NRA decided not to endorse Reid. Still, endorsing McConnell is bad enough. (I am not an NRA member, by the way.)
NRA needs to wake up
You are not wrong. But as they say, a lie goes around the world before the truth gets it’s pants on. And no matter how many times they are corrected some folks just keep repeating the old lie.
The NRA is about as useless as most anything else now.
Years ago, I joined the NRA as a life member.
Their present political agenda is why I now throw all of their requests for money in the trash can.
And I no longer read their mag.
And tonight I will send my check to several other gun owner organizations.
