The NRA Between a Rock and a Hard Place Shows Its True Spinelessness

Imagine a white man pulled over for a traffic violation who was in possession of a gun, legally. The officer, seeing the gun, instead of asking for license and registration shouts “Gun, gun!” and blazes away killing the driver. What would the NRA say?

Or imagine a white man pulled over for a traffic violation and the cop did ask for license and registration, but the driver—with his hands on the wheel—tells the cop that he has a permitted firearm before reaching for his wallet and the cop shouts “Gun, gun!” and blazes away killing the driver. What would the NRA say?

We now know what the NRA said in the cases in which legal possessors of firearms were killed because of that possession … in the cases in which the drivers were Black.

Nothing.

The letters N-R-A stand for No Reason at All.

The NRA is not about gun rights. It is about making money for the gun and ammo manufacturers and sucking up to the mostly conservative gun buyers in this country.

    • Unfortunately it is the NRA leadership which are the primary assholes. Many of the members are quite ordinary and are accepting of reasonable gun reforms. Of course, leadership, which receives millions upon millions from the industry will never let them vote on such measures as they don’t lead to ever increasing gun sales.

      When President Obama was elected, the NRA ran a campaign that “Obama was coming to take (i.e. confiscate) your guns.” There was an immediate boost to gun sales. Even though Mr. Obama did nothing to deserve that accusation, when he was re-elected, the fact that he had done nothing with regard to gun control was used to fuel another “Obama was coming to take your guns.” campaign. The argument was that now that he didn’t need to get re-elected, his true colors would come out. There was another boost in gun sales. Shortly you will hear that “Hillary is coming to take your guns.” and there will be another boost to gun sales. The NRA is shameless and another name has to be invented to describe the lies they tell.

  2. If NRA had any sense, they’d fight for the right of black people to buy and carry guns. Because not only that means more business, but more black people with guns would scare the white people into buying even more guns!
    But to be serious, I don’t think they have anything to say about either of those cases – where a good guy with a gun was killed by another good guy with a gun, or about Dallas, where 12 good guys with guns were shot by a bad guy with a gun, who, in the end, wasn’t even stopped by a gun, but a bomb-carrying robot.

    • The NRA did support the right of Black people to carry guns, but that was back before they got bought.

    • I think as long as people have guns, they’re happy. Doesn’t matter whether they’re black, white, pink, or purple … bad guy, good guy, mediocre guy (or gals). Their whole goal is to make sure guns are everywhere! After all, guns don’t kill people …

      • But in both cases, “guys” were killed because they legally possessed firearms. They can’t be happy about that! That’s an infringement on the right to bear arms, yada. yada, yada.
