  •  Yes, the NRA needs a re-branding from the outside (3+ / 0-)

    but how are we going to do that when even here at DKos, there is a sizable, vocal group dedicated to reinforcing the NRA message? They call themselves pro-gun liberals, but their rhetoric, their agenda is pure NRA.
    How do we reach to outer world when we can't get unanimity here?

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      Being a supporter of the 2nd doesn't mean you support the NRA. I'm sick of seeing this lie over and over. I've made the point many times that I despise the NRA and their tactics and others in RKBA have said the same.

      You won't get unanimity here because not everyone here has a lock step same position. There are good things we can agree on, but if we continue to demonize and lie about others it does zero good.

      Real background checks with muscle? I've wanted this for a long time.

      "Magazine" limits? Go ahead. I'm good with it.

      If we agree on background checks alone it would do a world of good.

        There are several people here that poo poo any kind of limits on hardware, who claim that universal background checks will do no good, et cetera, mouthing the exact same positions of the NRA while claiming, as you do here, to despise the NRA. Pardon me if it's a bit confusing.

        If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
