That is because those organizations idealogy deal more than about guns, when that stops, I know a lof of people, including myself, that would consider.Note it wasn't just the NRA that was mentioned but the SAF, etc.
I asked for a clarification on just what non-gun 'ideologies' were being dealt with.
Several days later, on a different thread discussing McDonald and Sotomayer, this same individual replied:
you asked about idealogy and the NRA, read the above comments...when talking about gun rights we should stick to gun rights.Now note how the goalposts got moved to mentioning ONLY the NRA and claiming that the comments from a few individuals, some of whom were members, represented the 'ideology' of the entire organization.
We see this mentality fairly often. Anything even remotely associated with firearms is under the guise and control of the NRA. Laura Washington and her 'wheelbarrows full of cash' meme was a prime example. Back in June we had Snuffy protesting the NRA at an event that the NRA wasn't even present at nor affiliated with.
So are these alleged people just completely unaware of the dozens of other national and state groups that are also available to gun owners or are the arguments against gun ownership so weak that the only thing they can do is lump all of the groups together into one big ad hominem boogeyman? A little of both? Neither? What?
How can we inform the general gun owning public of their choices and encourage them to become members of (at least) the organization that fits their personal firearm ideology whether it be NRA or GOA?
