NRA insults Gary Johnson on their Facebook page

The NRA released a picture on their Facebook page today endorsing Mitt Romney. People are upset about it and a few of them are talking about Gary Johnson. The NRA actually responded to the Gary Johnson posts, and not in a good way. Here is the exact post,

"Yes, vote for a guy who dropped out of the Republican primary before the first caucus or primary after barely registering a blip in the polls. Gary Johnson is not going to win in November; he is not going to be president in January. You may not like your choices in Romney and Obama but those are your choices. If Obama is reelected, the Second Amendment will be in serious peril as he will not have to face the voters ever again."

Let's all give the NRA a piece of our minds, and let's see if we can get this disturbing piece of news to the front page of the Daily Paul. Thank you all!

The GOP is one terror attack

The GOP is one terror attack away from becoming anti-gun too. They have that ace in the hole that the DNC does not have and are therefore just as dangerous to gun rights. Even worse, the RNC has armies of armed brownshirt types in the south and midwest ready to start rounding up muslims.

Our choices

have been defined for us... what was the election for anyway?

Good Youtube video

Here's a good Youtube video about Rmoney and guns. Good for spreading the word.

The NRA is a currupt organization

We are going to see a cacaphony of Republican/Conservative organizations attack Johnson and Johnson supporters this week. I am losing friends over my support for Johnson. Each of these groups is being told that they will lose favor from the Republican establishment if they do not attack Johnson, or at least do not give him and air time.

Same bullying tactic they used on Paul etc.

my grandpa

signed me up one day at a show , and i didnt really care too but he was paying so what the hey, I now recieve letter upon letter about renewing / extending my membership , also the magazine they send out was all about how the obama admin is bad and evil and we should get them out. I'm with the Gordon Duff view on gun owner ship and how obama has sent the sales of firearms through the roof, another 4 years could of obama could garner ruger and others MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of more in sales. So really i think its all a scare tactic, the U.N. will come for them when they come for them , All we can do is sit and wait, also romney will flip flop on all of his stances once in office , THEY ALL DO IT.

on another note,

Mitt Romney Delivers Major Foreign Policy Speech
http://www.c-span.org/Campaign2012/Events/Mitt-Romney-Delive...

watch this , romney gives a cleverly crafted neocon written speech TODAY and called out iran multiple TIMES!!!

They are both bad choices but at least with obama that admin is not bloodthirsty for syrian and iranian blood. hes just thirsty for pakistan peoples blood, through the use of drones.

To hell with the nra. Every

To hell with the nra. Every time that I have been stupid enough to become a member, I swear it seemed as though they spent at least 2 times as much as the $35.00 yearly membership that I gave them in sending me a never ending stream of junk mail asking me for more money. That is why I ended up becoming a member of the GOA.

This is what the GOA thinks

This is what the GOA thinks of Mitt Romney: http://gunowners.org/mittromney-2012.htm

I'm sure the NRA agrees BUT will continue their endorsement of Romney. Lame.

edit: you can really tell from their response post to the GJ posts that the NRA is truly a lobbying group in the pockets of the GOP. I mean, GJ's record is way better on guns than Mitt Romney.

I love the GOA

I love Gun Owners of America, but these guys are pretty great too. You should check them out.

That's OK

The NRA insulted my intelligence long ago, grubbing for membership fees to fill their coffers while compromising standing-up for 2A.

The video below is enough to make your blood pressure rise and all the more reason to vote for Gary Johnson, not that gun control lover Romney:

I Just Donated to Gary Johnson Campaign

Gary Johnson isn't Ron Paul but he's the only other candidate I would Vote for as our next President. His policies are similar to Ron Paul's. He was a two term successful Governor of New Mexico and that must be respected too.

Maybe the little bit I donated today will help him.

He's on my California Ballot and his tabulations will be shown on TV and other media outlets. Where Ron Paul's votes may or may not even show.

I'm now Voting for Gary Johnson

i got to re-iterate all the

i got to re-iterate all the GOA (Gun Owners of America) posts on this thread. They are the ONLY NO-Compromise gun lobby in D.C. today. "It's a RIGHT, Not a Privilege!"

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

NRA is controlled

Someone supports the 2nd amendment and they do not approve,
What's with that?
Evidently, the NRA is just a part of the "old guard" GOP/RNC.

If I Remember Right

Ron Paul report card from the NRA was an A, Romney received a C. If the NRA wanted anyone to take them serious they would have supported Ron Paul and not Romney. So the next time they call and ask you for money or to join their group, ask them why they supported a C over an A. The NRA is more worried about donations then they are the Second Amendment. I don't trust them anymore than I trust Romney.

Wanna talk choices . . . yeah, OK, let's talk choices

I've got two, Good or Johnson.

Romney screwed himself when he dissed us at the convention.

The GOP screwed Romney when they rigged the primary.

Obama, Oh God, do I have to say anything?

My ONLY two choices are the Constitution party or the Libertarian party.

If Mittens was smart, he'd have asked Ron to be his running mate.

Didn't happen.

It would have been great for Ron to get on the Constitution party ticket or the Libertarian ticket as running mate. Everybody would have known he wasn't just window dressing. Didn't happen.

I refuse to vote for another establishment candidate. I'll write in Jesus Christ before I'll vote for another go-along get-along big-government bureaucrat.

Why is the NRA even relevant?

Why is the NRA even relevant? They keep compromising. Compromise just means it takes longer until private ownership of firearms is banned.

Might want to "like" this

Might want to "like" this page too!! Spread it around: https://www.facebook.com/NraMemberAgainstRomneyEndorsement?r...

go to the picture and "like"

all the comments that call out the NRA for what it is, a useless organization, headed up by a bunch of statists, who like guns for hunting.

"Yes, vote for a guy who is

"Yes, vote for a guy who is trailing Obama by 7% in important swing states, a guy that wants to ADD 2.1 TRILLION in "defense" spending, a guy who signed the worst assault weapons ban in history. Mitt Romney is not going to win in November; he is not going to be president in January. You may not like your choices in Gary Johnson and Obama but those are your choices. If Obama is reelected, the Second Amendment will be in serious peril as he will not have to face the voters ever again."

I love this

Well done, sir!

Romney is a gun grabber from Massachusetts

"a guy who signed the worst assault weapons ban in history."

I always tell that to those who pitch Romney. And then they typically look confused and sometimes disappointed. The NRA is a sell-out that takes member's time and money. Join a real national gun rights group like GOA.

Romney and Obama

are not the only choices. If everyone voted for the third party we would get some change.

newsflash to the NRA

( I am a member)

Obama has never once stated as president or a campaigner that he is going to touch the second amendment.

In fact he's been more pro

In fact he's been more pro 2nd amendment than Romney has been in practice!!

what makes these a-holes

think we would vote for a Republican in the first place? We were going to vote for Ron Paul ... not because he was republican - but because of the philosophy. Guess they are looking for a segment of society to blame for a lack of strong message.

Gary Johnson 2012

Thank you for posting this. I e-mailed NRA today

and told them to cancel my membership because of the Facebook comment. I was going to let my membership expire in 2014, but this gave me reason to end it now.

Oh, and Gun Owners of America just got a new member. :)

Magna est veritas, et prevalebit. Truth is most powerful, and will ultimately prevail.

My pleasure!

This, right here, is exactly why I had to create an account to share the information.

There were a few candidates that have

Very solid 2nd Amendment records running in this Republican primary, namely our champion, and Every other candidate besides Mitt Romney has a better record on this issue than Romney, but the NRA doesn't endorse in primaries, and so we end up with crap like the NRA supporting crap like this....

TWO elections in a row, in 2008 John McCain was also by far the worst of the available lot on the 2nd Amendment.

I made furious phone calls that year to the NRA to demand to know why they weren't getting behind Ron Paul, or any other candidate that wasn't John McCain in the primary..and that's when I left the NRA after being a dues paying member most years since 1993 - If you haven't made the switch to the Gun Owners of America yet...well, it's not too late! http://gunowners.org/

if the NRA really cared

and they really think it is between Romney and Obama, then they should have endorsed Obama. Obama has a better track record than Romney. Obviously they are just partisan and just want your money.
