NRA Quietly Backing Democratic Presidential Candidates

The NRA has been quietly funding some Democratic candidates for president for the 2020 election, noted an inside source. The election of Donald Trump has been a disaster for the guns and ammunition manufacturers. Without the threat of a progressive administration “taking away our guns,” there has been no impetus to stock up and guns and ammo sales have plummeted.

While Mr. Obama was president, gun sales soared as repeated NRA campaigns focused on plans of the Obama administration to confiscate Americans’ guns. During Mr. Obama’s time, of course, no such plans were made, neither were there actions taken, with only a few mild suggestions to Congress for reforms. Mandatory background checks at gun shows or universal background checks were recommended, even a one gun per month limit on sales was suggested but none of these were acted upon. Still the threat of confiscation was a constant topic in the circle of gun owners.

Since the election of Mr. Trump, the sales of guns and ammunition have fallen dramatically. While the NRA will not admit it publicly, privately officials are saying that a Democratic president will be much better for business, hence the attempts to support candidates now. Early money is like yeast, our source told us.

  1. You simply can’t write this stuff, can you?

    • Sure, I can write it. If fake news is good for the goose, it is good for the gander. (You didn’t think this was real did you?)

      • Errrrum…. Did you just take me for a ride?

        Damn. That was actually believable, and that’s frightening.

        Well played.

        • I wasn’t trying to play you, which is even more frightening. I have a history of spoofing the NRA and since only a few of you read my diatribes, I thought you would all catch it.

          I wouldn’t be surprised if it were true, but the NRA certainly couldn’t allow the fact to become public, which is why I thought most people would realize I am spoofing them.

          The fact that it was very believable is even more frightening than if it were real!

  3. Glad I got here late! I found this post far too believable. 🙂

    I actually know people who went nuts stocking up on guns/ammo during The Obama administration. I don’t know what they are doing now, still wathcing and gobbling up all the lies from Faux News I’ll bet.

    The manifestation of alt news, alt facts, and outright lies, has turned into a monster that should never have been fed.

    • The gullible are always there to be manipulated. The problem now is that we are all viewed as being gullible and, in many ways, especially politically, it is mostly true.
