I might not agree with everything the NRA does or has done.
But whenever someone wants to get on a high horse about the NRA this or that blah, blah... When's the last time you got on National TV To call out a crooked news media group on improper labeling of all Assualt Rifles as Full Auto. Or to advertise and call out Crooked Politicians and their crooked Bills? And who shelled out the cash for the FAMOUS DC vs Keller case?
Yet these arm chair commando's will sit back and yap all day about freedom but have done NOTHING but talk about here on OCDO. No action besides keyboard banging :quirky
I will concede that the NRA has done some decent things for 2A rights, like provide funding for court cases and hiring lobbyists to convince congresspeople that our rights need not be trampled.
One cannot forget, however, how the NRA was a big part of the NFA as well as the GCA. The sands of time will never repair this, nor will they repair the damage done by Heston and by Joaquin Jackson in the eyes of the media.
The NRA supported several (maybe a dozen, maybe more) politicians for high political offices this last election year who were known anti-gunners, weak on 2A and weaker on other rights. Weak is not the effort we need to make.
What, exactly, is the point of a rights organization that cares little about its endorsees' positions on the Fourth? The Sixth, Seventh and Eighth? The First? They are NOT picky about their choices and endorse big-government statists every chance they get.
Go ahead and resort to ad hominems and personal attacks. It's ok, because you know me in real life and know what I do in my spare time.
PS- for gun rights, see DC v. Heller. DC v. Keller involved a blind deaf mute.
