USA – -(Ammoland.com)- We all know the NRA is continually under attack.
But it’s more than that; gun owners are stereotyped as racists homophobes who can only redeem themselves by renouncing the NRA.
Some of them do, they write articles and tell us all that no real gun owners support the NRA. Like the new kid in town who lacks any self-respect, they cozy up to the liberal bullies and try to be friends by mouthing the approved lies.
The NRA catches in on both sides, called quislings by the far-right gun associations and racists by the left.
There are times you’d think the NRA can never win.
National Rifle Association Facts
Let me remind you of a few facts. I remember the 80’s. When we elected a President, who was a member of Ducks Unlimited and claimed to be a member of the NRA. A white southern male governor who when asked if he would ban guns said. “Hey, I’m a white male, southern governor… do you think I want to ban guns?… I’m a member of Ducks Unlimited!”. So what happened?
The Brady Bill and Assault Gun ban were the results, and while they in themselves were meaningless, they open the flood gates for the anti-gun left to show who they are.
- “Banning guns is an idea whose time has come!”
- “This is just the camel’s nose under the tent.”
- “Guns should be banned….”
- “Tell the NRA their worst nightmares are true..”
If they had the votes, they boasted they would ban gun ownership in America. Never before had our rights been so imperil.
In case you missed it the politicians who made those statements are still waiting for their chance to seize power, and if they do your rights to own a gun go out the window.
California and New York are not aberrations. They are the model the DNC, and anti-gun Democrats will use for the rest of the nation.
The NRA’s ILA was young back in this 1st fight, and it was NRA members’ alone who rallied gun owners; who fought to protect and restore our rights. Without the NRA you gun owners who now whine and whimper about the NRA would not have the right to own a gun. Without the NRA the next time the anti-gun left comes to power who will be there to defend your rights?
Yes sometimes the NRA pokes the bear, they over react and touch our fears when they don’t have to. Let me say … who cares?
I mean seriously. So Wayne goes on a rant, or Colin cracks a joke or some NRA Instructor make a slip-up. Do NOT make an enemy of the good because it lacks perfection. If you’re SO thin skinned that a few extra emails upset you (and you are too incompetent to find the unsubscribe button) that you’re willing to sell your rights down the river than maybe you should just sell your guns now?
The woman who was supposed to be anointed President said the NRA (and it’s members) are the number one enemy of America, Anti-Gun members of Congress call us the American Taliban, liberal activists call us baby killers and worse. So the NRA calls for the police to crack down on violent rioters and the left goes nuts. We’re called worse than ISIS and the silence is deafening.
I will not apologize for belonging to the NRA; neither should you.
If you’re not a member join if you don’t like the emails hit unsubscribe. If you value your right to own a gun get off your butt and do something to protect those rights. Join the NRA.
