An Eye on NRA Recruiting Efforts

Apparently it’s rubbing one Inquirer reporter the wrong way, which is reason enough to keep doing it.

    A Berreta is a ‘little’ gun? I’m sure some are, but surely not all of them. Shotguns are hardly small, and neither is the the 92.

    Oh, wait…this is one of those people who knows nothing about guns talking about guns, isn’t it?

  2. Sebastian says:

    Pretty clearly. I think the Inquirer Editorial Board’s combined knowledge of guns would probably have a tough time filling up a 3×5 card.

  3. Until I read that, I never knew Dick Heller was the *Gun Lobby*.

    The only thing more ignorant than the reporter are some of the comments.

    That is a very funny article.

    But where did he get this, do you think?

    “According to the FBI, 9,484 people were murdered in the United States last year, 6,755 of them by handguns.”

    That sounds like one of those spun dried statistics. There haven’t been that few murders since the 60s.

    Link appears to be broken – I get ‘this article is no longer available.’.

    wow, I love people like this. The people that CLEARLY have no real flippin’ idea. So I guess I need a Beretta since they are really small and so deadly?

    “The gun lobby is getting everything they want!” – Seriously? Last I checked I still have a microscope shoved up my rear when I purchase a handgun, or when I get my permit, and and lets not forget we all get charged out the wazoo for permits- or (as I like to say) a tax on my right with an expiration date.

    And on a side note, I’m soooo sick of the “gun show loop hole” bull crap!

    I agree that “the gun lobby is getting everything they want” is a bit of an exaggeration. But. let’s face it, your star is rising. And when the Supreme Court makes its big decision next year, you’re really gonna make strides.

    Eventually, I think it’ll all turn back around.

    Thinking has never been your strong point, Mike. But keep trying, and maybe you’ll get the hang of it!

  10. Justin says:

    A rising star? I guess …. I call it restoring the rights our over bearing goverments have used to chain us (as a people) down.

    That’s strange, Mr. Boasberg, I too keep on getting similar solicitations with leading questions from the Democratic Party, ACLU, Brady Campaign, PETA and others, in spite of being an NRA member and registered Republican. Now how could that happen? After all YOUR side is 100% correct and has the monopoly on ethics. Inquiring minds want to know!

    We won Heller and we shortly will be winning McDonald v Chicago. How does it feel to be on the losing side of history?
