.....We also need to start attacking all their leftist sweetheart policies (abortion, etc)......

So, it's impossible to support The Second Amendment whilst also supporting abortion?
Or on the flip side oppose abortion whilst opposing The Right to Bear Arms?

Granted its here in the UK but I know plenty of 'right' leaning individuals who support abortion within certain restrictions.

You speak of 'free speech' yet passionatley oppose those damn, pinko commie bastards.
I know you are smart enough not to support restricting their Right to Free Speech but many who have very similar views to you would make spreading any 'leftist' viewpoints illegal and ban any 'leftist; organisations.

A dangerous road my friend.

Yes, this investigation was probably initially politically motivated but if it has unearthed evidence of fraud and corruption etc then it needs to be pursued in accordance with the US judicial system/procedure.
This in no way impacts your Second Amendment rights.

You are right; start a new organisation that puts gun owners interests before gun manufacturers etc and keep out of other political issues, they will only serve as a distraction and steer you away from your primary concern.

There are other organisations/groups around if you want to involve yourself in other issues.

But then again, what the hell do I know?

The Second Amendment Foundation is also a very good organization with real legal results.

The NRA files amicus briefs with the court on a case they're not involved in and it gets people to believe they're doing something. The NRA has done nothing as the rights of Californians were penned away by communists who now threaten to take their water and power for daring to host people in their homes.

I just watched her press conference. They're really throwing the book at these guys!

It's about time!

The book contains criminal charges.
This is a political stunt.
Will you cheer Alabama v ACLU?

NRA is a useless organization but I always get a little squirley when I see an obvious political stunt targeted at a private organization.

Its interesting watching people that hate the 2nd cheer something like this and rabidly defend their cause of choice against govt over reach.

that said Lapiere was the worst thing to ever happen to the NRA.

Dissolve the NRA, by all means, corruption / fraud in any organization is why we have the problems we have.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and speculate that the folks who shoot the sh!t out of each other, every weekend, in Chicago, don't know what 'N.R.A' stands for.

I'd target dissolving your public education system - therein lies a root cause of MANY issues currently playing out.

He gets it^

The NRA, as an organization, stole $64 million in donated funds for their top execs. A lot of this has come to light after Oliver North (of Iran contra fame) was elected president of the organization and, almost immediately, said there was fraud happening within the organization and resigned.

Executives misused charitable funds for personal gain, awarded contracts to friends and family members, and provided contracts to former employees to ensure loyalty.

I trust wholeheartedly that the NRA is just the start, and the Attorney General's office will be aggressively pursing other organizations blatantly doing the same. Regardless of industry or political leaning.

(Ain't happening....)

I concur and agree.

The same sentiments are present in many of the firearm forums I visit.

People only become members to have access to legal aide in court cases should they find themselves needing it, but most everyone knows that the guys on top of the NRA are basically the same as the assholes in the government.

Isn't this pretty much what Obama did? I'm not sure why the NRA would need to be dissolved, but I would hope that those involved in criminal actions would be arrested and see prison time. I am guessing that this is more likely a smear tactic

The Democratic Party has morphed into the Socialist Progressive Party
- A party driven by agendas.
- One of which is to end the Second Ammendment.

As Socialist Progressives they assume they are always right and justified no matter how unethical, if not illegal, it is to
achieve their Socialist New World Order.


And they will use all and any means to destroy it - This below the belt attack on the NRA by the attorney General of NY
is obviously political - Possibly aided and abetted by the famous Socialist billionaire Michael Bloomberg, famous for using
his money to set his control freak agendas into play - Remember he just lost badly in the Democratic primaries as even
the Democratic leftest progressives couldn't stand him - Still I imagine his money is still doing its dirty work.

New Youk is a state that caters to control freaks - And had very restrictive gun laws, some of which have been overturned
by recent Supreme Court ruliings.

This suing of the NRA is obviously driven by a revenge motive - As was the impeachment of Donald Trump.

I can't say if there is any truth to the lawsuit - But you can bet it is happening now during a significant election year
in an attempt to block the NRA's often effective support of pro Second Amendment candidates.

Does anyone remember the term NRA Democrat ? - No more, the Socialist Progressives are turning the Deomcratci Party
into Communism West.

Here is part of the Democratic/Socialist agenda:

"The proposals include so-called “universal” background checks, the elimination of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System’s three-day safety -valve provision, and gun owner licensing, which would turn the right to keep and bear arms into a privilege dependent on the whim of government bureaucrats. The Democrats would empower government intrusions into the home to dictate how Americans keep and store firearms for self-defense and to confiscate firearms without due process based on the flimsiest of evidentiary standards. Moreover, the draft platform calls for a ban on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms and their magazines, something explicitly prohibited under the U.S. Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Second Amendment in District of Columbia v. Heller.

Another portion of the platform states, “Democrats will also ensure the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have sufficient resources to study gun violence as a public health issue.” At a time when the politically-biased Centers for Disease Control has come under severe criticism for its response to an actual communicable disease, the national Democratic Party platform would further distract the agency from its core mission by turning it back into a taxpayer-funded gun control factoid factory.

The gun control section of the draft 2020 Democratic platform is an escalation of the anti-gun position put forward in the 2016 platform, adding and expounding upon the positions in the earlier document. Both are notable for what they omit. Neither recognizes that Americans have a Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms........"

Quote source:

Remember its your guns today and every other right you have under the Constitution tomorrow.
- Michael Bloomberg as Mayor of NYC passed an ordinance limiting the size of soft drinks because he said they were unhealthy.

Doesn't matter if you like guns or not - Once thy take down the Second Amendment the First Amendment will be next
- Ultimately you lose the American Constitution completely
