Inside the NRA: Armed and Dangerous--An Expose Jan 1996

Inside the NRA: Armed and Dangerous--An Expose Hardcover January 1, 1996
by Jack Anderson (Author)


The nra has been an insidious invidious assiduous treacherous duplicitous truth twisting organization for decades, & this book by jack anderson (dec'd) is as apt today as it was 22 years ago, with a few alterations due heller & mcdonald & the money grubbing political names have changed.
One approval (below) also listed a common theme which exists till today, that (circa 1996) the nra is 'rapidly losing the confidence of the general public'. Hasn't worked that way tho, eh?
Gets mostly bad reviews - consider the negativity coming from far right critics, likely answering the nra's call to arms to attack someone bashing the guardian of their sacred 2nd amendment.

I believe in 95% of the information and numerous sources that Mr. Anderson uses to make his case, which is this - the NRA is consolidating and perhaps increasing its political power in Washington D.C., but it is RAPIDLY losing the confidence of the general public.
Mr. Anderson has an objective view toward sensible gun legislation. He does not advocate registration, or confiscation, or any other ultra-radical anti-gun stance. However, he does expose the NRA for what they appear to be - ultra-conservative, ultra-right radicals, who are unwilling to compromise on, or even suggest sensible gun legislation and/or safety measures that would benefit the average citizen, without comprimising their rights, constitutional or otherwise.
BTW, I am a former member of the NRA and consider myself a conservative.
Anyone thinking about this ongoing gun debate will benefit from this book.
My review is from the audio version of this book.
