The NRA and GOP just threw gun owners under the Bus


So you probably already heard about the bump stock gun ban.
If not… well…
Trump, NRA open to ban on ‘bump stocks’ for guns
'Bump stock' ban draws unlikely support from NRA, White House, GOP members
The NRA goes ahead and BANS bump stocks in their own ranges BEFORE the ban is even approved.
It’s all over the news, all over the world, as a great anti gun victory in USA like we haven’t seen in years.

This was the stock used in the Las Vegas shooting, which allowed the shooter to fire rapidly, somewhat similar to a full auto gun. The key important difference is that this is NOT a full auto conversion. It may happen very fast but legally speaking the trigger is being pulled for each shot fired.

Let me explain this again: The NRA just made it ok to ban rapidly pulling the trigger of your gun. That’s what a bump stock does.

That the NRA didn’t even try to stop this and just opened wide and took it like a champ (or a very cheap prostitute) is concerning. Folks, lets not kid ourselves. If this had happened under Obama or Hillary, everyone would have expected the NRA to at least put up a fight. AT LEAST demand to wait until the actual investigation was over for crying out loud.

The NRA and the GOP, they have betrayed gun owners across America.

With this passive attitude, this complete lack of objection in the face of a blatant attack on gun rights, expect the NRA to do no different when the next piece of your gun rights cake is stolen.
Give enough of them away, while the NRA does what it did in this case to stop it, nothing, and one day you’ll end up with none left.

Confused? Expected at least a bit of a fight? Some resistance of any kind?
Yeah… the word you’re looking for is betrayal.
Have a good weekend folks.

FerFal, the NRA has been betraying us since 1934, when they helped write the NFA. Just like they helped write GCA '68. Just like they helped write the Lautenberg Amendment. They even bragged about the NFA and the GCA in the March 1968 American Rifleman:

"The NRA supported The National Firearms Act of 1934 which taxes and requires registration of such firearms as machine guns, sawed-off rifles and sawed-off shotguns. ... NRA support of Federal gun legislation did not stop with the earlier Dodd bills. It currently backs several Senate and House bills which, through amendment, would put new teeth into the National and Federal Firearms Acts." American Rifleman, March 1968, P. 22

and

"We think it's reasonable to support the federal Gun-Free School Zones Act. ... We think it's reasonable to expect full enforcement of federal firearms laws by the federal government. ... That's why we support Project Exile -- the fierce prosecution of federal gun laws...we think it's reasonable because it works. ... We only support what works and our list is proud."

The NRA are doing what they did in 1934, 1968, 1994 etc. We'll give up a little bit of our rights to keep them happy and they well see that we're the good guys and stop coming after our guns. When's the next vote for nra board of directors there's going to be some new names up. Never, Never,Never give up ANY rights for ANY reason, I'm in the UK this I know first hand.
Benjamin Franklin had it right "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." (In a letter written by Franklin in 1755 on behalf of the Pennsylvania Assembly to the colonial governor.)
