The NRA is a force to be reckoned with. It is not, however, light on its feet. If a firearms-related story breaks, TTAG and an army of bloggers are on it like a modelizer clocking Helen Svedin at Starbucks. The NRA is at least two days behind the curve. After Newtown, an entire week elapsed before they said boo to the goose. Where are the SAF and GOA-like press releases responding to gun ban bills within hours of all the 2A affronts making the news? Where are the hard-hitting NRA ads defending Americans’ Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, as above? They’ve got a few. But then again, too few to mention. I reckon the NRA’s a victim of its own success. The gun rights org’s healthy bank account and endless brand extensions (NRA wine club?) have created a bloated bureaucracy. Given their relative sloth, what should the NRA do with itself in these dark days of civilian disarmament?
