I am Virginia Citizens Defense League member but I give my money to the Gun Owners of America not the NRA. The NRA is a bunch of pompous jerks who are only good a naval gazing. Most of them walk by the VCDL booth at the guns and turn their nose to us. The NRA is full of big ego A-Holes.
> The NRA has had to become more proactive as it has faced competition from the Second Amendment Foundation, Gun Owners of America, and numerous, extremely effective state grass root groups such as the Virginia Citizens Defense League, the Arizona Citizens Defense League, and many others
Competition is great, isn’t it!
And now that even long-time anti-gun advocates such as Hillary Clinton and Charles Schumer have been affirming their support for the Second Amendment individual right, the basic premise with which the NRA is identified has become so widely supported that only politicians in very safe districts dare to dispute it publicly.
“the basic premise with which the NRA is identified”
Huh? Since when?
The NRA’s support of democrats with supposed good records, is a deflection and a distraction from the point that gun law is bad law. They should be harping on NFA, the 1968 gun laws that past president Charleton Heston was a prime mover in getting into law, and the 1987 laws that effectively ended Machine gun purchase by the average citizen. Government picking winners and losers, or how to pay 20,000 thousand dollars for a gun worth 2,000.
I have tried at least 5 times over the years to support the NRA and every single time they have been instrumental in supporting positions that are designed to further the aims of the NRA, not the “people”. I have to continually ask myself what they are fighting for, and the answer for me is plain. Not the second amendment. “Shall not be infringed is pretty plain language.
May I suggest nagr.org an organization growing fast that truly is pro second amendment.
