I believe the NRA have revealed themselves as very frightened, and wishing to protect themselves

from all the things. This should be increasingly interesting as more is revealed.

1. I don't believe they are as powerful as we sometimes think.

The more frightened they appear, the more NRA members will turn away from the organization.

13. What are they going to do? Pull their guns on us

I don't think so. Most if not all the gun nuts I know are pussie. Without their gunnie manhood they are scared shitless.
Mind you I'm talking about the people I know not anyone on this board.

4. the NRA is a pissant group

The best thing we could do is completely ignore them and simply push for sensible gun control.

Let you congresscritters know that NRA money is a drop in the bucket of funding and they will slither away

10. But it's really not a drop in bucket.


The leadership includes folks like Grover Norquist, John Bolton, etc. When NRA lobbyists visit a congresscritter with a few NRA bucks in hand -- it includes support from a lot of other realms as well. Congresscritters understand this.

5. They're working quite hard at doing it to themselves.

9. I don't think they are frightened themselves they just want everybody else to be frightened

They just want one thing. They want the people they work for (the firearms manufacturers) to sell more guns. That's it. It's their sole reason for being there.

They have cleverly gotten a bunch of suckers scared shitless and made them (gun buyers) pay for their lobbying efforts on behalf of the manufacturers. It's a great scam.

They have also scared the crap out of a bunch of pink tutu republican (and some democratic) congresspeople and convinced them that the NRA can get them kicked out of their cushy congressional gig if they don't vote in accordance with the wishes of the firearms industry.

You don't have to be a MENSA member to figure out what's going on here. And you do have to admire them for having the sheer balls to pull this off without anybody saying anything about it. But I think enough eyes are being opened that their little scam is about to come to an end.

They hate the president anyway. He might as well come down hard on them.

14. I don't think this matters.

 

Most gun owners aren't members.
