The NRA-- the anti-gun bigots' boogieman

You may have noticed (or not) that I tag most posts about guns with "NRA".

I don't do that because I think the NRA understands guns, rights, or liberty, but to poke fun at them for being such failures, for so many decades, where actual rights are concerned. 

Yes, they still have their uses. They are good for making anti-gun bigots have a choking fit. Anti-gun bigots are quick to attack "The NRA" when gun owner rights get some respect, even though the NRA rarely has anything to do with it.

The NRA is weak on rights and liberty-- preferring to fawn over cops and the military and Republicans. Eww. I don't know if they are still good at training/safety-- their political stupidity made me write them off years ago. 

I'm a (disgruntled) Life Member who joined back in the (governor) Bill Clinton years! But after several form letter responses over the years-- "responses" that had nothing to do with the concerns I was voicing to them-- I gave up. They are going to politick and keep licking those boots for a pat on the head and a seat at the kids' table rather than take a principled stand on the absolute HUMAN right to own and to carry weapons without ever asking Master's permission. They kinda make me sick.

This blog is my job. You get to decide if I get paid. 
Please consider it.
Thank you.
