I’d like to start this post by clarifying something. I am NOT an NRA Hater. I haven’t always been a member, that’s true, but I’ve always been a supporter, and I’ve always believed in the stated mission of education, training, and defending the Second Amendment.
I believe that our country NEEDS a strong NRA. I believe that if the NRA had never existed our gun rights would be far lesser than they are now. The NRA has done a great job of SLOWING the decay of our firearms freedoms, despite what I perceive to be a lackluster performance at RESTORING what freedoms we’ve lost. I know there are people, perhaps some of you reading this right now, who say that the NRA has done nothing but compromise our rights away a bit at a time- and it can certainly look that way. However, I suspect that by sitting at the table when these laws are made and by being a part of the process the NRA has prevented far worse things from happening to our rights.
I say all of this so that the reader may know where I’m coming from when I talk about the current state of the NRA.Continue reading “A Letter From The NRA- And My Response.”
