NRA Reacts to Passage of H.R. 1112

Fairfax, VA – -( For the second day in a row, the anti-gun leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives passed an extreme gun control measure designed to discourage law-abiding Americans from exercising a constitutional right.

Chris W. Cox, executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, released the following statement in reaction to H.R 1112, the so-called “Charleston Loophole” bill, passing the House by a vote of 228 to 198:

“The anti-gun politicians in the House of Representatives continue to employ the shameful tactic of exploiting tragedies to market gun control that won’t prevent criminals from committing murder. It’s a sham and the Charleston Loophole bill is the perfect example of their dishonesty. The assertion that a supposed 10-day delay would have prevented a crime that took place over 60 days after the initial delay is ridiculous.”

“This legislation would not have prevented the Charleston murders, and even worse, the legislation is so poorly drafted it would put law-abiding citizens who need a firearm for self-defense at risk by trapping them in an endless loop of delays. The NRA will continue to fight for the constitutional right of law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families without apology.”

National Rifle Association Institute For Legislative Action (NRA-ILA)

Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Thanks for nothing NRA. They have become totally worthless. Be advised when my membership expires, you will not get one more time from me. There are other organizations that, while may be smaller, have a lot more stones than any of you. Shove your membership shill, Hickok45….

It warms the cockles of my heart to see other NRA members(past and present) willing to voice their frustration and lack of confidence in the current NRA administration. Those that are also willing to defund the NRA until the organization is overhauled and the offending leaders are tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail. I block their calls and promptly toss any mailings in the trash unopened. My membership is paid for 4 more years,(yet I don’t understand why I don’t get to vote and refuse to pay more to get the chance) but they will never… Read more »

So, I see a complaints about the problem. What I don’t see are solutions to the problem.

Justice 365

The true Patriots in this country need to start voicing and visibly protesting against the liberals, socialist, anti gun, anti American politicians and their constituents. The longer we wait it will allow the leftist in this country more steam to get their agenda done. I’m doing my best to send letters, emails even phone calls to legislative personnel, Sentors, congressman…etc. Telling them they are in violation of the Constitution. Whether they care or not the seed is planted in their pea brains. I even got a response from the president’s office assuring me the president is addressing the issues. Anyway… Read more »


Forget about the NRA helping us they’re only interested in money…. period. All they do is send out letters everyday and ask for more donations in various amounts. Aside from the mailers, the phone calls are almost daily with people asking for a donation to help fight the liberals anti gun agenda. The elite are all in it together and it doesn’t matter what political side of the road you come from. It’s all posturing and the rich Democrats, Republicans, Socialist, liberals, or Independents don’t give a rats ass about the common man or the families. All this rhetoric spewing… Read more »


Please… no more… no more compromises… no more “air”… EITHER you stand to protect the 2A or you don’t
The nra create “problems” so they can “protect your rights” (and get rich doing so)
No fight = no NRA
Go away and vegetate
Whats the next thing we “don’t need” that you will throw to demonrats?
= Membership cancelled – I for one don’t need the NRA

“the war on guns”, the words used in the cartoon. “Guns” the word is used by those trying to disarm us, instead of the word “rights”. We should avoid the word “gun”, instead use “arm”, and rights of. This should deflect some misleading comments.

Jack Mac

Mr. Cox, Your letter is a halfcocked dry-fire attempt. Call those people what they are, anti-civil right politicians. Do not tell them what they already know. They know they are exploiting tragedies and are not honest. They have no need for people to defend themselves, it does not promote their agenda. Criminal acts do. Avoid the use of the words “law abiding”, they just scuff and giggle when heard. Just the words “rights of Americans”, they will not like those words either, but they will not openly scuff or giggle. They are aware of the hardships their laws cause and… Read more »


Further it would criminalize families or anyone who is anyplace teaching firearm safety!

The Green Watch Dog

The NRA is one of our strongest gun rights organization that supports our 2nd amendment, and a voice of those who enjoy the the right to bear arms. With a disorganized group of members that talks down of the NRA, then it certainly ensures that failure is eminent.

Heed the Call-up

We members of the NRA, myself a Life Member, are not disorganized. We also support other rights groups that do not submit to unconstitutional laws as the NRA does. Full faith and support will be returned to them when they begin to fight these unconstitutional laws and not just make public statements and backroom deals, then demand more money to fight those same laws.


Ok so everyone hates the NRA and hopes they burn in hell. Great idea, now what?
BTW what back room deals? Be specific.

The Green Watch Dog

No, but it looks like she, as a lobbyist, has done much for pro gun laws, and a voice for the NRA when she was President. Appears to me that she has made much more of an impact than the current President. The point I’m making is pro gun activist need to step up and be more involved.


Terms limits are needed for the Executives at the NRA even more than they are needed for Congress and the Senate. Action is needed, not words from the NRA.

The Top End of the NRA really needs to have a total shake up, they are entrenched for to long of a time period, they need to get back to what they were founded on, they are to busy trying to be P/C and lining their pockets, time to get back to their roots!!!!! CANDY ASSES???????? HAVE LOST THE BOYS EQUIPMENT???????? As a member VOTE for members that might make these changes NOW !!!!!!!!!!


NRA= Not Really Anything. To paraphrase Oliver Cromwell: “…you have sat here far too long. Depart and let us be done with you. In the Name of God, go!”


“if you are not a part of the solution then you are a part of the problem” “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. ” bottom line get politically active, you cannot simply rely on the GOA,… Read more »


We are still able to do this up here in Winterfell(North Idaho). It works, for now.

Not true….in an organization membership relies on the founders to invest the contributions wisely. It’s kinda like banking you put your trust into that entity to invest or protect your monies or investments. If some thing goes side ways with your investment and your account you would expect that investors would immediately notify you and what solutions are being don’t to stop the bleeding. No doubt the NRA is doing something but where are the results. I read the articles put out by them about what the leftist politicians are doing and then that’s it…. okay, maybe I’m ingnorant, but… Read more »

NRA, NOT ONE DIME! I will not be able to support your organization any longer. You have back peddled on our God given Rights to many times.

Heed the Call-up

Bruce Richards, other than point one, those points are straight out of the anti-rights playbook. You are either a poser or a liar or a Leftist stooge.


I believe and practice common sense gun control.
!. Never point it at anyone
2. keep my booger hook off the bang switch until I am ready to shoot
3. I always know what is behind what I am shooting at
4. Secure my gun so it won’t go off unexpectedly
5. Store it safely when there are kids around
I have never had a gun do anything out of control or jump up and shoot at will.

jaa dee

Go along to get along NRA what a joke….
Half measures and excuses, smiling faces tell lies…
At least the anti 2nd peeps are honest the lying GOP and NRA are just Rats

Mark R

Blah, blah, blah. Could we expect anything more from an organization without any balls? No guts, no glory.


This BEHAVIOR / ACTION PROVES they have become TURN-COATS AGAINST the very foundings of OUR CONSTITUTIONAL SUPREME LAWS of the LAND!!!!!!!

Democrats need to Target The Criminals , not Legal Gun Owners. Here is a site that attacks the Criminals.

Jack Mac

Criminal acts are a mainstay in the promotion of Democrat agendas. They will not target criminals.

Herb T

Time to face the facts: Democrats don’t really care about opposing views on gun ownership. Their view is to get rid of civilian guns, except their own, regardless of how many oppose them. They don’t really care about voters except at election time. And many voters are ignorant, stupid or both and continue to vote for socialists/communists and other enemies of the American way. Current vote getting strategy is buying votes with the hint/promise of reparations for descendants of slaves. And of course, letting illegals vote and continue on the welfare roles.

Green Mtn. Boy

Negotiating Rights Away should be careful what they ask for they just may get it.


The Limp wristed response you’d expect from an organization led by a man who testified before Congress FOR this exact legislation in 1999.


He is right! Makes no sense!! Just like most democrats ideas
