And the big banks, big insurance,, big oil, the American Bar Association, Koch et al, Soros et al, big unions, big biz, etc. In doing a little research, the NRA is a long way from being a top political contributor or lobbying organization. With all of the hype about the NRA I was a little disappointed.
AMEN, I belong to NRA and wil continue to support the right to carry and own for my own protection.
Clever but unrealistic. Lots of companies and unions have contributed much more money to the buying of congressional influence.
No offense intended, Adrian, but you don’t want to bring your pepper spray to a gun fight.♦I don’t think the NRA supports gun rights for criminals, semi sane, or insane, and I think it was in Florida (not sure of the state here) the NRA had recommended stricter guidelines on Florida’s “stand your ground” law than the legislature passed.
The NRA has turned crazy since I became a life member 50 years ago, but then there were no large groups of anti-gun crazies. This year’s boom in gun sales motivated by the latest demand for more gun laws boosted gun supplier profits and the number of guns in the hands of under-educated citizens.
The NRA hasn’t supported “responsible” gun ownership for quite some time. From teflon coated bullets, to large capacity magazines, changing position on “background checks”, mostly supporting military style weapons, and unlimited access to PISTOLS and “short barrel” weapons like MAC 10’s, Uzi, and other easily concealed high capacity NON-HUNTNG weapons that are NOT “rifles”, La Pierre, and Carter (non Jimmie) before him HAVE made Nugent a more appropriate representative of the organization.
As a gun owner, who supports the Second Amendment, and “rational” gun ownership, I see the NRA as one of my greatest threats, not advocate.
Did the people who bought the guns you’re talking about buy them illegally?
“What’s your source ?”
How come when I ask a source from you, you don’t reply?
Does not matter, the point of the cartoon is that a 4.5 million member special interest group controls congress. That is the problem!
“Its my take that the NRA only promotes gun ownership by all people, sane, semi-sane, and the criminals…”.Your take: no relation to reality. Enjoy your Kool Aid!
