NRA Anti-Gun List Missing From Gun Group's Website

Source: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON -- A controversial list of 494 people and organizations that the National Rifle Association considered "anti-gun," and which received significant media attention in recent weeks, has apparently been removed from the gun lobbying group's website.

The list was posted online Sept. 17, 2012, but on Monday, clicking on the page that once housed the list brought up a note reading "Page Not Found." The Internet archive "Wayback Machine" captured an image of the page as it looked in late January.

The NRA's "enemies list" -- which contained dozens of celebrities, as well as doctors, clergy members, journalists, Hallmark Cards Inc. and the PTA -- underscored how many influential and generally respected people and groups the NRA opposed. The roster was initially intended as a boycott list, but over time had grown to include private citizens like teachers and social workers. In the aftermath of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, questions were raised about the nature of the list.

A spokesman for the NRA, which claims more than 4 million members and has long been a powerful lobbying force on Capitol Hill, declined to comment on what happened to the list.

Wow! NRA scrubs list targeting anti-gun people.

Was the hate group afraid that they would be in a Palin targeting position?

2. CYA, because they don't trust their members to not act on it.

3. 4 million members

Not a very large number when you compare it to the number of people they must have pissed off with that list.

4. Hallmark Cards???

What, there is a card against mass killings? Or was it just all the sentimental, lovey dovey stuff they spout? Really, how did Hallmark piss off thsoe delicate flowers at the NRA? Did I miss something? Geez, these guys are so touchy.

7. Issuing That Huge Enemies List Was An Enormous Blunder By The NRA.


Quite frankly, I'm surprised they had enough collective intelligence to try to conceal it. Too late, though---their enemies list is all over the place, now. Kind of like that "comic book" they were stupid enough to let slip out, a few years ago. (Google "NRA Comic Book" if you haven't seen it already. And keep it in mind, next time one of our resident Gun Enthusiasts makes the ridiculous claim that the NRA is a "single issue" organization.)

8. I think collectively they are a 'single issue' organization.

It's called White Power.
