A resurgence of the gun control movement

Sebastian:

Now, I do believe that social media has greatly enhanced the ability of a small number of determined activists to intimidate traditional companies who dont really get social media. But in 2008, they did not have even a small number of determined activists.

If you really want to annoy the other side, join the NRA. They’re running special discounts.

    Lifetime member of the GOA and never considered joining the NRA, but this noise in the media making the NRA sound like a gun manufacturers’ lobby and not several million American members making their voice heard is annoying. Just signed up as a life member.

    Someone should gift a membership the that Hogg kid.

    I’m a proud lifetime member.

    A big part of the problem is that two years ago the NRA abandoned its reasoned communications strategy and cautious adherence to being a single issue advocacy organization in order to sell out to hyper partisan, aggressive in your face messaging. It stopped being a big tent organization. Starting with their failure to endorse Harry Reid in 2010 (yeah, I hate him too on other issues, but he voted right in 2A, and kept gun bills off the docket when they had a filibuster proof majority), to their abysmal handling of the Philando Castile

    There has been complete lack of leadership, both from the NRA and D.C. It doesn’t help when they have to spend half their efforts reigning in an aggressively ignorant President who is threatening to do illegal things. We are starting to reap what we have sowed.

    I notice at the linked page that NRA takes PayPal payment. Didn’t we boycott PayPal for dropping gun commerce sites a few years ago? Did PayPal flipflop or did the NRA?

    I agree. Join and help change it.

    @Rivrdog
    Do you actually have to ask that question? Its the NRA obviously.
