    Not like the NRA hasn’t attacked their detractors.

    You mean people who attack our civil rights?

    I didn't think you were so anti-2A.

    And where does the NRA obtain its operating funds? From membership dues and donations. From people right here on this board.

    The NRA is on the verge of being declared insolvent. La Pierre may as well go on a spending spree for himself with NRA free money.

    And I notice you altogether avoided the NRA's $24 million debt for legal fees. Is the PR firm on the hook for that also?
    I happen to know that the NRA is suing its PR firm:

    NRA Files Suit Against Ad Agency in Rift With Key Partner - WSJ

    So this could be damage control by the pr firm. Or a way to try and put pressure on the NRA to drop the lawsuit.

    Either it will be recompensed by the NRA, or the NRA will have another lawsuit on its hands.
    No..because the issue would be with the PR firm and Lapierre.. not with the NRA as an organization. In fact.. it would be questionable why the PR firm would be reimbursing expenses to La Pierre in the first place. That might be indicative of the PR firm trying to buy favor with La Pierre to disguise the PR firm overbilling the NRA.

    The NRA is on the verge of being declared insolvent.
    Hardly.

    nd I notice you altogether avoided the NRA's $24 million debt for legal fees. Is the PR firm on the hook for that also?
    It may be depending on the outcome of the lawsuit the NRA has with the PR firm for its overbilling.
    So we should put you down as supporting putting GPS trackers in everyone to "save lives"?

    I think you are confusing “civil rights” and “civil liberties.” I’m not anti 2A, I’m anti NRA.

    It appears the point was to berate NRA members.

    The 2nd Amendment is a civil right.

    It's pretty hard to claim to be pro-2A, while being anti-NRA and voting for anti-2A politicians.

    You’re confused;


    Civil Rights

    Civil rights concern the basic right to be free from unequal treatment based on certain protected characteristics (race, gender, disability, etc.) in settings such as employment, education, housing, and access to public facilities. A civil rights violation occurs in designated situations where an individual is discriminated against on the basis of a protected characteristic. Most civil rights laws are established through the federal government via federal legislation or case law.

    Thought you were both a legal and Constitutional scholar.

    I never said I was “pro” 2A and you have no idea who I vote for.
