I’m sure many people are getting burned-out on discussing the gun debate. Both sides blather on with the same tired talking points. Leftists, in between Planned Parenthood fundraisers, tell us we hate “the children.” Republican talking heads repeat “it’s not the right time” like a mantra. Not us. We’re always happy to tell leftists they’re mind-numbingly stupid when it comes to matters of armaments.
Which brings us to this. Joe Scarborough is claiming to have mind-reading capabilities. He says NRA members don’t like the NRA. Yeah, for reals.
This is a critical point. A handful of NRA DC lobbyists live in a bubble, attack law enforcement officers and incite violence with ads. The overwhelming number of NRA members are patriotic, respect the law and disagree with the DC lobbyists’ most extreme views. https://t.co/bqUq3EI8Sp

Why would people give money to an organization with whom they fundamentally disagree?
I’ll credit Joe for extending a sorta-kinda olive branch to NRA members, but the praise ends there. Joe seems to think people who shell out their hard-earned greenbacks to the “child-murderers” at the NRA aren’t too keen on the NRA advocating for private gun ownership. Which makes about as much sense as feminist Lena Dunham writing checks to the American Federation of Housewives.
The NRA’s “extreme views” are that people should remain free to own gats and the government should adhere to the Bill of Rights. Views which are about as moderate as it gets. Yet, the idea of individual citizens exercising their right to self-preservation counts as “extreme” to the left. Next, leftists will be telling us we’re “extreme” for not wanting to de-brain tiny tots. Oops, too late.
In reality, Joe’s probably never met a common NRA member. Being a member myself, I’m happy to clear things up for Scarborough. Generally speaking, when a person goes out of their way to donate to an organization, they agree with the organization’s purpose. It ain’t rocket surgery, Joe. #thebasics.
