NRA Not Aggressive Enough?

April 19, 2010 at 09:29 (Guns, News)

Sometimes I think not. I mean seriously, if they ever solve the issue of having the government finally read the 2nd Amendment, what would they do? Get off the gravy train and call it all off? Nope. They benefit from keeping things going perpetually.

Some gun owners, saying that the National Rifle Association isn’t battling hard enough for their rights, are taking the fight into their own hands.

The 4.3 million-member NRA, one of the most powerful and well-funded lobbying groups in Washington, has for 35 years dominated the push to expand gun rights.

But its strategies aren’t aggressive or imaginative enough for some gun owners who want to openly carry holstered pistols in public places, or to exploit loopholes in state gun laws to purchase semi-automatic rifles.

They are coming together in smaller, loosely organized groups that recruit on the Internet and find inspiration from the tea party movement.
