Here’s an example of an appropriate response to the insatiable, incessant demands of the leftist gun-control freaks.

Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“The Georgia Senate blocked a lucrative tax break bill on Monday that would benefit Delta Air Lines after the Atlanta-based company severed ties with the National Rifle Association.”

Delta << Northwest < Republic

Don't forget Chicago and Southern, Northeast, and Western, as well as big chunks of PanAm and AeroMexico.

As for Republic, throw in North Central and Southern.

What are you doing for car rentals? All the majors capitulated on this. I dropped Enterprise when they were the first fold. No there’s no one else to turn to. I suppose the first to backtrack.

The whole NRA reporting by the mainstream media is another example of the mainstream media and fake news. They constantly talk about politicians beholden to NRA dollars. The fact of the matter is that the NRA contributions pale in comparison to other lobbying groups like Planned Parenthood. When an issue about abortion comes up, do the mainstream media ever talk about Democrats beholden to Planned Parenthood money?

There are two reasons why politicians stand up for the NRA:

1. They have 5 million + dues paying members and millions more who support their belief system. Name one other civil rights organization that has 5 million + Americans paying money to be a part of their organization? These millions of people believe in what the NRA stands for and vote accordingly.

2. The politicians actually believe in what the NRA believes in. No one questions if a Democrat believes in the tenets of Planned Parenthood.

The mainstream media have been exposed yet again in the whole way in which they report on the NRA. They are fake news...

As an NRA life member I’d like to welcome you aboard!! May I suggest you get America’s 1st Freedom as your choice of magazine when you put in for your subscription. It is the one that does the most amount of political coverage in regards to the 2nd Amendment. If you are not a sportsman/hunter it would probably be the one that you are most interested in.
