The NRA YouTube video below has received 1,085 views between January 30 and this morning, February 4. What does that tell you? What NRA Veep Wayne LaPierre is telling viewers: the NRA is “Donald Trump’s Strongest Ally.” Wrong answer? I mean . . .
. . . the NRA’s closerthanthis relationship with President Trump leaves no room for manuever. No room for their lobbyists to pressure the Prez to do the right thing, using the only negotiating technique worth a damn: the threat to walk away.
At this point, the NRA can’t walk away. Not as its adopted President Trump’s “make America great” again slogan and publicly declared its fealty to the former assault weapons ban supporter.
President Trump should work with Congress to get the “how obviously benign can a pro-gun rights law be” Hearing Protection Act passed. He should push legislators to repeal the Gun Free School Zones Act and enact national reciprocity, the single most important [potential] gun rights restoration bill in our lifetime.
But why should he? President Trump’s inaction on firearms freedom risks nothing — thanks to the NRA’s decision to jump in bed and cuddle a President who’s best described as mercurial.
In this political alignment, has the NRA failed The People of the Gun?
