The NRA Cops Out

The Democrat’s dominance in congress is threatened by thousands of small political organizations encouraging people to vote against incumbents.  Dems are desperate to silence them, so on Thursday the house passed a first-amendment-shredding law called The DISCLOSE act, which stands for Democratic Incumbent Safety Contract Locking Out Simply Everyone.

The law is designed to make it nearly impossible for political organizations to speak out by hobbling them with draconian regulations.  They will have to submit lists of their donors to Big Brother.  Any broadcast ads must list their five biggest contributors, which eliminates the possibility of an economical 15 second radio ad, as well as giving pause to contributors who don’t want their name blasted everywhere.  And ridiculous amounts of paperwork are included, of course.

The NRA spoke about against it, so the Democrats carved out an exemption for them.  Once they received their exemption, they bravely shut up and are now refusing to take a stand.  Since they’re protected from it they no longer give a damn.

Other groups complained about the NRA’s special treatment, so the Dems rewrote the NRA exception to cover other very large organizations.  It’s only the little guys who will get screwed.

This is the NRAs excuse.  Lame, isn’t it?

Nice move, you gutless wonders.

  1. I have never given money to the NRA and I don’t think I will be in the future. I never trusted the NRA because of their week stance on assault weapons and other issues. This just added to the list of reasons that they will never get a dime for me.
    It’s a shame because gun owners really need some organization to stand up for their rights, but I don’t think the NRA is the one to do it.

  2. The NRA was giving out free memberships last year, so I signed up. I’ve since told them to stuff it and remove me from all their mailing lists.

    Try the Gun Owners of America. I don’t know a lot about this subject, but I get the idea, from conversations with people who are more involved, that the GOA is what the NRA should be.
