As carry permit applications, pre-purchase background checks, and gun and ammo sales roar to new all-time records, the NRA is being crushed with new and renewing members.
Scarcely a peep in the media (especially about the membership).
But one Democrat politician and “NRA member” “quits” – and the media is lined up out the door.
If I were a betting man (and I’m not), I’d wager good money that:
- He was an “NRA member” for the same reason I “joined the teachers union” when I taught a semester at Metro State, and
- Come his next campaign, he’s going to have at least one pic in his campaign lit, decked out in hunting camo with a duck gun.
But I won’t blame anyone for not taking any action on that bet.
