    I've always been a supporter of the NRA's cause, which as I understand it, is defending the 2nd Amendment. But this speech from Wayne LaPierre indicates that defending the 2nd Amendment has taken a back seat to supporting the GOP. That's very disappointing to me.

    Sure, I know some of you will immediately dismiss this because it was run on the Daily Show, but the facts speak for themselves.

    For the last time, Stewart is not a source of news. He is a comedian. The Tea Party tries to put pressure on the GOP to support 2nd Amendment rights because the democrat party is a lost cause. Support for the 2nd Amendment and support for the GOP usually go hand in hand but not always.

    Right on queue with the dismissal :rolleyes:

    The facts speak for themselves. This is one of those 'not always' times.

    There are many reasons to be disappointed with Obama, but weakening the 2nd Amendment sure as shit ain't one of them.

    I was under the impression the NRA was the main lobbying arm of weapons manufacturers and dealers. That the 2nd amendment was not the purview of the NRA. Because the NRA ignores the "well regulated militia" bit.

    So we can go ahead and add this to the already lengthy list of false impressions polluting your brain. :thup:

    LaPierre and the NRA are in the GOP's back pocket.

    I am not a gun person, but I feel the same way about the VFW. They won't get any of my money. I support the IAVA.

    The NRA is an Evil Lobby Group for the Republican Party. We must stop them from purchasing America one election at a time.

    Simple solution. Unionize the NRA. Then the Dim candidates can get their hands on NRA money.
