NRA on Holder

It’s worth noting that while NRA hasn’t let loose all of the grassroots force through an alert calling for specific action on Holder, they haven’t been silent.

Since he was nominated, I have received at least three stories from them via daily emails with warnings for members about Holder’s positions. They are at least educating, even if they aren’t calling for action. Elections have consequences. You can’t realistically expect the incoming President with the most anti-gun record in history to appoint pro-gun people.

    What a cop out. Maybe we can’t expect Obama to appoint ‘pro-gun’ people, but the NRA has no excuse for not calling for action in this case. Holder is an insult to more than just the second amendment.

    Remember, with massive support for the Amnesty bill on both sides of the isle in Congress, there was a grass roots movement changed the course.

    The outrage against Holder is not nearly at the level it was for the amnesty bill You greatly overestimate how much force can be mustered against him.

    I listened to Cam Edwards’ show on Sirius radio last night. Alan Korwin was on there towards the end of the show, and he said that Eric Holder as the AG will seek the authority to ban any type of firearm that he feels has no “sporting purpose”. This will likely mean a total ban on all semi-automatic weapons.

    Well, maybe we can get a nice court case (heard and settled decades from now if we’re still around) taking the sporting purpose and the unelected outright tyranny of one man deciding what is and isn’t permitted for the common people out of this. Of course, that means we didn’t do our best, or maybe we did and got someone worse.

    Play the cards, have a backup plan for when the rigged game is lost.

    I’m not over- or under-estimating anything. I’m not estimating at all. But it’s the NRA’s inaction that is guaranteeing an underwhelming response.

    Were it not for bloggers and talk radio, I doubt the amnesty bill would have been smacked down the way it was.

    We’ve got (some) bloggers on board for this one. I have no idea how much the talk radio show hosts are focusing on it. But the NRA, at 4 million strong, with simple email alert could have some effect on that.

    Cripes, I’ve never seen someone fight so hard to not fight when a fight was needed. Flawed as the NRA is, it’s still the biggest kid on the block and it’s sitting there like a bump on a log.

    Mark is right. It DOES sound like a major copout.

    “Well, we aren’t SURE he’ll appoint a pro-gun person!”

    The LESSON GIVEN by his opposition STILL STANDS. It shows that gun owners will not take any more ABUSE by the system. Evil only happens because good men stand by and do nothing.
