NRA... Really?

It is the time of the year when the National Rifle Association distributes ballots for choosing its new slate of directors. Almost everyone is deeply involved in gun issues, whether as a 2nd Amendment advocate or a manufacturer or a shooting instructor, or a hunter, or something like that.

Except one guy, whose connection to firearms issues seems rather tangential: Some clown named Mr. Grover G. Norquist of Washington, D.C. Other than being an unelected one-man no-tax goon squad, there is little indication that ol' Grover has ever held a firearm in his fat, pasty mitts.

Wassamatta, NRA, you couldn't talk either the Blubbering Fascist or Snowflake Snookie into being on the board?

Looks like the NRA is coming out of the closet and going openly political.

I've been a shooter & gun owner for over 40 years. I grew up in Texas, fergawdsake. But for the last 20 years or so the NRA has gone so far off the deep end that I'll pay the non-NRA member extra fee at the range rather than give them my money or support.

On the other side of the coin, once one ignores all of the political ravings, it doesn't take a hell of a lot of time to read the American Rifleman.

They must be so broken-hearted that they don't actually have an enemy in the democratic president. The president has done nothing about guns except *remove* one gun law, so they had to go after him on the basis of that.

Will this proceed to the point where the NRA is demanding restrictions and bans on guns?

Yea,before charlie they were just there. Charley Heston was ok, but Wayne was too obviously a "John Bircher" and I grew up seeing those people as 'Bad'. Couldn't give them my money anymore.
Worse now I guess. I do miss the gun smithing stories tho.
They had me do a Ruger Double action trigger job that left me thinking I'd might be worth a shit at smithing.
