    Let the NRA know when they are wrong.

    Even though they didn't have a lobbyist until 1975 they held the positions on the memes. All I tried to do in this group was to have them stay involved in the legislation and help the NRA know our positions on issues. By the way I didn't share the meme on social media, just here. Seems like once a compromise has been made it's a settled position. These battles have to be re-fought. The NRA's position on bump stocks relied on the compromise position that happened in 1968. Instead of staying neutral they use that law as the reason to outlaw them. I'm enjoying this debate. https://home.nra.org/joint-statement In response to repeated attacks on the Second Amendment rights, NRA formed the Legislative Affairs Division in 1934. While NRA did not lobby directly at this time, it did mail out legislative facts and analyses to members, whereby they could take action on their own. In 1975, recognizing the critical need for political defense of the Second Amendment, NRA formed the Institute for Legislative Action, or ILA.

    Let the NRA know when they are wrong.

    I posted the meme to get people talking and engaged. I didn't just post the meme without a statement. My suggestion was to let the NRA know when you disagreed with a policy. As a member I believe I should make my voice heard on issues concerning the 2nd Amendment. I'm not giving up ground without a fight. If the veracity of a meme is called into question, then I'd expect a critical thinker to search for the truth. Maybe I expect to much from some. Maybe. The promise of safety at the cost of freedom. Was the NRA willing to compromise away automatic weapons? (1986) https://timeline.com/nra-machine-guns-1986-265cb939c77c The NRA played the sacrifice as virtually meaningless. “I remember very well having dinner…with Wayne LaPierre on the big victory after it passed the House,” said former NRA lobbyist Richard Feldman. “And we weren’t too concerned about the machine gun issue.” But the decision set a precedent, especially for a powerful lobby that increasingly prided itself on zero Second Amendment compromises. Was the NRA's position "gun free, zero tolerance, totally safe schools"? If not then Wayne Lapierre was out of step when he made that statement. https://www.thewrap.com/nra-wayne-lapierre-no-guns-america-schools-period-1999/ Did the NRA back background checks? https://www.nraila.org/articles/20180228/nras-support-for-the-national-instant-criminal-background-system-fact-checking-the-fact-checker The NICS – set up by the permanent provisions of the Brady Act, which frankly should have been called the NRA Act – "...the National Instant Criminal Background System – was the legislation that the NRA supported at its very inception and has consistently supported since." Did the NRA ask the ATF to rethink bump stocks and subject them to additional regulations? (2018) https://home.nra.org/joint-statement "Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law. The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations."
  4. Yep. Use google news and you'll see CNN, MSNBC, NYT's, Washington Post, USA Today and AP. What you won't see is Fox News. Ever.

  7. I'm a memeber along with many others on this site. Remind the NRA when you believe they are wrong. Contact them about giving up our rights. Promoting the out-lawing of Bump stocks today. Red Flag laws tomorrow. Confiscation without due process the new unconstitutional position.
  8. Maybe, you can look at the ingredients on the Kroger can and figure out the mystery season.
