The NRA is a training organization, NOT “your guy” in Washington.
Today I watched “episode 1” from MAC’s State of the 2nd video series. Unfortunately, he is ignorant on so many levels.
- His constant refrain was that the NRA was a “compromiser”, and had better not “negotiate” away our 2nd Amendment rights.
First of all, the NRA is and always has been (since 1871) a marksmanship training organization. Period. They took up gun safety training along the way, and after the 1930’s began more and more to act as “our guy” in Washington, to defend the 2nd. But that’s not their primary role. And that’s not what they should be held accountable for.
If you aren’t happy with their willingness to settle for half a loaf rather than no loaf at all – start your own organization! I suspect that political war is much harder to fight than any of us here in fly-over country would imagine. I suspect that we would settle more than we now think.
2. He followed this whining up with more whining about YouTube’s policies on “gun channels”.
YouTube is a “for-profit” business, not a non-profit whose goal is to provide us with free entertainment. Again, if you are unhappy, start your own video-streaming service.
I’m weary of all of those on the left and right who believe that somebody “owes” them something. Listen up:
YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS OTHER THAN THOSE GIVEN TO YOU BY YOUR CREATOR, AND THE RIGHTS TO ANYTHING YOU MAKE OR BUY. GET OVER THAT ENTITLEMENT STUFF!
