I generally don’t link the nobodies, but this is just too amusing not to link. “Nasty Jack” is a friend of the antis, and is frequently quoted by them. But Jack’s an idiot, and a total nobody. His words are meaningless.
Still this post cracked me up, its a fantasy about an anti-rights takeover of the NRA.
But there is another group present that has a different purpose than the NRA’s fanatical gun rights. They are the gun control advocates who came to this firearms fiasco to dump CEO Wayne LaPierre and shut down its absurd advocacy for guns for everyone to take anywhere they want. These are reasonable people, some of which own guns, many who are NRA members, but realize they should only be meant for protection in the home.
These are law abiding citizens who aren’t afraid of background checks, even the registration of their weapons. They are also a part of the budding majority that believes assault rifles were meant for killing and have no place in the typical American home. They believe in the 2nd Amendment but also realize its limitations. The Founding Fathers did not intend for it to open the door to an NRA style culture with zero restraint.
It was almost a year ago in 2012 that the call went out through gun control advocates to enlist those with this philosophy to join the NRA, while identifying members within the organization that were approving of sensible gun control. They responded in droves with 3 million new applicants signing up and 750,000 NRA member sympathizers joining the group. That meant out of the total membership now of 7,300,000, 3,750,000 were anti Wayne LaPierre.
Finally, there was a majority in the most powerful lobby in the country; but could they throw the bums at the top out? With determination the gun controllers set about to infiltrate the meetings, espousing their views on sensible gun control….. It was done and the gun controllers had done it. When they went searching for LaPierre to officially strip him of his titles and position he was nowhere to be found. One security guard said that he saw him and several other men exiting through a basement door that led to the parking lot where they expected to find their limousines. They weren’t there. The gun controllers had made sure of that. LaPierre was later seen walking around the parking lot begging for a ride.
The 2013 NRA Annual Meeting closed early.
Oh, only if…
This is the dream of current anti-rights activists. They’re losing, and see no hope of gaining ground, so they fantasize about some unseen shadow group toppling their arch enemy, the NRA. God knows they can’t do it…but maybe their bullshit anti-rights surveys are right, and most gun owners and NRA members are silent supporters of Brady and Joyce.
Instead of the image of the white male father dressed in flannel taking his son off to the woods for the traditional deer hunt, the new image of gun ownership is much broader and more diverse. The members of the 2.0 gun culture are more likely to own an AR15 with a suppressor than a Winchester Model 70. And, you can rest assured that a new gen gun owner is likely to be carrying a Glock or KelTec when you run into them at the local coffee shop.
In today’s gun culture, there are many more women, a broader mix of races and a wider range of backgrounds. Instead of being a clean cut poster child of the 1950’s many gun owners are bikers or body art enthusiasts covered with tattoos. Others are fashion conscious while others still are computer nerds. Members of the new gun generation range in age from teens to retirees.
The point is, our culture has changed. And, it has changed for the better. We attract all kinds of people into the gun world because all of the lies about us are easily disproven now that the mass media no longer has control over what people know. The internet has allowed the truth about firearms to get out.
This is really true. Used to be gun owners were aging hunters, and always white and male. Now the gun ranges, gun shows, and conventions are filled with young people, women, minorities. Rather than the flinty woodsmen who use their guns to hunt game and kill varmints, but computer geeks and soccer mom’s who are packing guns to protect their lives if it comes to that.
Rather than the ranges being popping circle targets at various ranges from slow-fire, we’re getting action shooting sports where you’re playing out action-packed defensive scenarios.
Its a huge force…and the antis would just prefer that they don’t exist and keep pimping a survey that simply isn’t valid!
Their tears are both sweet and plentiful!
