Although I have my issue with the NRA (I’m a member), it has a top-notch PR team that really knows how to frame the debate. If only our so-called Republican leadership had the will and stomach to do the same. The debate should not be about gun control;, but about violence that from a statistical standoint is epidemic in certain segments of our population.
I, too, am an NRA member, and I think that they generally do a good job WHEN they are on the offensive.
They are weak when they are attempting simply to maintain the status quo....football’s prevent defense would be a good analogy.
By its very nature, the NRA should always be on the attack.
