    Email from the NRA-ILA last night..

    Read through it. It made it sound like Wayne LaPierre had discovered and blown out the story for the ATF scandal.. /facepalm

    Seriously. WTF?! Did the NRA have anything to do with this at all?

    Kind of like a few months back when their write-up of the McDonald case made it sound like it was entirely their deal, with no mention at all of Alan Gura or the SAF?

    Yeah, it makes my ears bleed.... and I'm a member. Sigh.

    Accountability. It's not just a financial term.....

    I listen or watch Cam & Co. on NRA news 2 or 3 times a week, and altho it is a great avenue for 2nd Amendment stuff, I do have to laugh some times at things they say. Two nights ago, someone from my State sent in a talk back asking about SB1201, Cam stated it was sent to the Governor's desk, and she had til May 2nd to sign or not, he then went over the rest of our pro 2nd Amendment bills. He was right on his information, but he said they were all NRA backed bills, and give no credit to the AZCDL.

    I wanted to call or send a tank back to say that if the person from Az. just joined, or at least added their E-mail to AZCDL, they would know more about the bills then the NRA probaly does

    They do the same thing here in Virginia. NRA backed does not mean they did anything , they just support them. They take credit for everything and in reality do very litlle except on the national level and even then they horn their way in and take all the credit.

    It's the grassroots gun rights groups in the states they really force the changes in the laws.

    And as I pointed out in the Michigan forum the other day, they took credit for getting shall issue legislation passed here about 10 years ago, despite the fact it was almost exclusively MCRGO's deal.

    They have a rich tradition of stealing credit/mooching off of other peoples success, negotiating rights away and offering horrifyingly inept "training". All this while weaving their way into the very fabric of most of American gun culture and making a fortune on it. As a community, all gun owners should be embarrassed by what they've allowed the NRA to turn into.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.
