cn5621:  When I see how a bunch of radical nuts has destroyed the NRA, I can't help but look at our President and see a parallel. How badly will this country be destroyed before people on both sides stand up? 

 

 

You're absolutely correct, and I have no idea how so many people are clueless about the NRA and keep parroting the talking points and supporting them. None are so blind as those who will not see.

In the 1960's, I joined the NRA. At that time it was an organization that promoted hunting, target shooting, gun safety and law and order. For years it was a reasonable and responsible organization. Around 30 years ago a criminal named Harlon Carter forced his way in to control of the NRA. The leadership was afraid to buck him and he slowly changed the NRA for the worse. Now a bunch of radical unbending zealots has taken over. That one hit wonder who calls himself a Rock N Roll Star is a prime example. When I see how a bunch of radical nuts has destroyed the NRA, I can't help but look at our President and see a parallel. How badly will this country be destroyed before people on both sides stand up?

@rj7500– as I just said in another thread, the louder trump  screams fake news, the truer  we know the story is. If I listen very closely, I can hear the fool screaming  here in my little town in New York State. 

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!
