Constitution Party asks members to dump NRA

From a Missouri Constitution Party Email:

The Constitution Party suggests that its members consider cancelling their memberships with the National Rife Association (NRA). Our candidate, Bill Spaits, MO state rep, http://www.constitutionpartymo.org/index.php?s=Bill+Spaits who has been a long-time NRA member, completed his candidate questionnaire with 100% positive responses. He received this statement as to why the NRA would not endorse him:

"It is the policy of the NRA NOT TO INVOLVE ITSELF IN "THIRD PARTY SITUATIONS."

The NRA will not co-sponsor the Sheriff Mack event.

The NRA has never been about

The NRA has never been about Liberty, they were founded by Anti Secession people. And they have compromised on gun control, when not supporting it outright.

The NRA,isn't pro 2nd

they are just for the money
Our state has no registration for pistols,nope,none what so ever
the state has been breaking the law by sending ones to prison for felonies.
The state legislature with the help of the NRA,drafted 2 bills,one each for the house and senate,these stated,it would be cheaper for the state to send this database to the feds,this way the state would not have to hold it
So,the NRA helped the state with breaking the law,then abetted them with sending this illegal database to the feds for control.
So yeah,there is no live lost on them.

Hey friend!

I wanted to respond to your comment in that post I had made, but apparently a moderator decided (with no notice) that it should not receive more comments. So, I'm responding here. Thanks for your kind words.

Since the ark doors closed, I have tried to be more helpful in showing people their violations of http://dailypaul.com/guide -- perhaps sometimes I was a bit overbearing, but the impetus was out of helpfulness, knowing that if a moderator was the first to notice, they might end up overboard without any warning whatsoever.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

kindred spirit

I have said what i wanted to say,hopefully it was understood
i don't worry about man made rules,especially here,you see,many have gotten away with personal attacks,ad hom attacks,one even went so far as to find out where i live,what I posted in our paper,and the link to the paper i made a contribution to,it went on for years,there was nothing done about it,I don't take any of that personal but some did border stalking,and it did break a few of the rules here. BUt,yes there's always a BUT,we should help defend our own
one day soon,it will be me with my head on the block,or yourself,how would you feel if when you were going through your trying time,you were thrown out?
All this typing is wearing me out,tomorrow I will be sick and out of it,if I post something contrary,should I be left to the wolves? They do become what we despise,they have no choice in the matter,it is life,and we should not be eating our own,we should be better than that,and help them, one day it will be you or I.
We HAVE to stand together,we just have to..the granger has/had faults,we all do,but she does still have the ability to teach,this is a fact,i learned from her.Now if she needed help,she should have gotten it,not thrown out...it only magnifies them feelings that all people have that tell them,they are unworthy,useless,a piece of crap...and maybe,they should just die.
Does this clear up my stance?

NRA is a joke

As stated, they have way to much to lose by winning. This whole gun control BS can be ended with one injunction.

The NRA

are ass kissers.

GOA all the way!

NRA seems to keep digging

a bigger hole for themselves.

I disagree. Rather, I

I disagree. Rather, I suggest that we NRA members work to throw out the compromisers, the sell outs, the wishy washy politicians now in power.

This happened several years ago. The NRA had become even more pathetic than it is at present. With four million members, we should NEVER have to worry about attacks on the Second Amendment. Our problem is our leadership. They are not serious about fighting for the Second Amendment.

I have met lawyers from the NRA at gun shows. They don't understand the Second Amendment, the Tenth Amendment, nor the proper function of government. They are victims of the law schools. They don't understand Constitutional law. They are taught that we live under a "living Constitution". The federal government can pretty much do what ever the Supreme Court says.

Well, the Supreme Court is supposed to rule on the case. The Court does not tell us what the Constitution says. We know what it says. And we know that we are being lied to.

I am an NRA Life Member, as well as a GOA Life Member. The Gun Owners of America are much more serious about fighting for our Rights. But the only problem with the NRA is it's leadership. Rather than abandon the NRA, let's work to throw out the compromisers and elect hard-core patriots to positions of authority.

screw them.. the best thing

screw them.. the best thing to do is Join GOA. No paying members No NRA.

I joined GOA

last month. I get a letter from NRA about every month wanting me to join them, I canceled NRA a few years ago.

same here..

same here..

That'll happen right about the same time you take over

the Republican party.

Good luck, I won't hold my breath.

The best way to remove leadership in an organization is to remove your funding of it until the leadership changes to what you want. That's the only thing they listen to - money. (and of course the end of a barrel, but we don't need to go there)

The NRA as an organization is infected beyond repair. The market mechanism here is competition.

Dump the NRA and sign up with Gun Owners of America, or start your own.

And if those get corrupted, repeat the process.

Just stop giving money to people who are blatantly working against your interests while lying to you about it.

That's just ---- stupid. (sorry, no other word I can think of fits)

What??

"That's the only thing they listen to - money. (and of course the end of a barrel, but we don't need to go there)"

Yes, we do!

That's what the 2nd amendment is for: to protect our right to use arms against those who are traitors and fighting against the people of the united States. It is not primarily for hunting and target shooting, those are included, but the right is to guarantee our liberties against those who are violating our liberties.

Until We the People are prepared to use our right as expressed in the 2nd amendment, we will never get back our liberties.

The onslaught against our rights has been going on so long that nothing will reverse the trend unless we change our tendency of using a corrupt political system to win back our rights.

Why don't we use the power of Citizen's arrest against any and all officials and employees of any agency that is guilty of violations against the rights of any one of us?

We need to fight wisely!

Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17

Of course the amendment was designed to protect the right for

the purposes you mention.

But THAT particular exercise of that right leads down one path and one path only.

If you want to go around willy nilly "arresting" government criminals on your own, go right ahead.

I doubt you'll last long.

The reality is that there is nothing you can DO.

If you attempt to travel this path, you WILL be MURDERED by government. And if your death even hits the news, it will be spun to look like you are a crazy person and the government agents who murdered you were justified. THEIR criminality will never be exposed.

Unless you can manage to field militia the size of entire divisions, your plan is hopeless. I'd be surprised if you even managed a batallion or even a single platoon.

I stand by my original comment.

It looks like the Bundy's are in agreement. They actually have taken the stand I am talking about. I would never "go around willy-nilly" arresting government officials. I would have proof, evidence and a load of supporters backing me up. The fact that I have not done so is because I do not have the support. The Bundy's have it, and I would like to see them arrest their Sheriff, Senator and Governor. I think they would have the support to do so.

Can you imagine the cheers they would get now?

The only way to end funding

The only way to end funding of the Republocrat Party is to abolish the Federal Reserve. Until we "End the Fed", we cannot have freedom and liberty.

And they should.

NRA are traitors to the 2nd amendment and Americans Right to protect themselves.

I knew it; I knew it--

NRA is down the hole--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Yep. They've been corrupted.

Controlled opposition. Another example of why lobby groups are not to be trusted. They have too much to lose by actually winning.
