I think it is important to remember what the NRA is. It is not a public intrest group. It is not a gun rights group. It is a front for corporations

they say start to make sense. Their are plenty of legit gun rights groups you can join but you since they are not corporate shills they do not have
the money or PR of the NRA.
Actually, it is a public interest group.
Guns as a rule, really do tend to sell themselves.
To tell you the truth if their job is to "sell guns", then they aren't doing a terribly great job of it because I don't think that I have ever seen an
advertisment by the NRA on the TV or the radio even.
Well, I mean if you consider ad placements in Guns and Ammo magazine and the like, or their pamphlets wedged in with the manufacturer's warranty and
disassembly instructions that come along with a newly purchased firearm – as the NRA “selling guns”, then I guess they really do.
It's actually a pointless argument because people wouldn't care if they worked directly for the gun manufacturers overtly.
Hey, as long as they're fighting against more restrictive moron laws being written, then mí casa es su casa, Wayne.
But that argument does sound familiar, probably because it's repeated so often by that guy Rachel Maddow on MSNBC or that blathering idiot
the radio, Randi Rhodes.
