    How the NRA "doesn't represent it's rank and file" and is "controlled by corporate interests".

    I don't believe it because:

    (a) The NRA and Mr. La Pierre are actually quite consistent in their positions, rhetoric and methods, and have been for years. So if suddenly someone is aghast at his message, either thay haven't been listening or seem to have suddenly changed their mind.

    (b) The take no prisoners modus operendi of the organization is reflected in the behavior of its self-identified members including certain Daily Kos members, who jump immediately on any RKBA issues in force and on the offensive as we can see in the early diaries published after Sandy Hook. Having learned by example, they know the drill and practice it well.

    So, sorry, I cannot totally buy the corporate overlords meme when it comes to the NRA, they have ardent corporate and private members that reinforce each other.

    After all, without corporations to make and sell these assault weapons, where would these people buy them?

    If any NRA members present here wish to disagree with me and insist you do NOT support the recent message of Mr. La Pierre, then please feel free to point out what is new about any of his recent statements. Otherwise, I invite you to quit the NRA.

    What about my Daughter's future?

      Same posters. Same ad projects. NRA full page ad in USA Today decrying the "jack-booted government thugs" of ATF and the FBI for going after White Supremecist extremists.

      You'll see that NRA ad misquoted in corporatist media as "jack-booted thugs." LaRouche used everything under the sun to push his own paranoid fantasies.

      MSM don't want Americans to see NRA for what they are -- standing a clear step to the right of Lyndon LaRouche.

      Who would be surprised if LaPierre/LaRouche/LaNutbags coordinate their efforts to see:

      "Stop World War III, Oust President Obama for his Alliance with al-Qaeda in Libya and Syria and Take Away Our Guns !!"

      "We have done nothing to be ashamed of. We have nothing to apologize for." NRA 12/14/2012
