“No compromise!” Oh rubbish!

Am I the only one who is damn tired of those people & groups that keep spouting ” The NRA Sucks! No Compromise!”? My favorite 3Per/This Is Sparta!/No Compromise asshole dropped this one beautiful tidbit in a forum not long ago.

i canceled my membership with the nra for the same reason. principle. to me, loyalty to a cause is a huge factor. the nra chose for their attorney in the chicago case before the supreme court the same attorney that represented dc in the heller case. now, i know that is not a big thing for a lot of people, but it is for me. where the hell is this attorney’s loyalty? make no mistake, i’m sure he’s the finest. but i just have a problem having the enemy suddenly become my advocate. i just can’t do it, sorry.

I think that my jaw dropped about 20 inches after I read this. So much stupidity compacted into 99 words is beyond belief.  I had to express my opinion to his imbecilic remark:

This ought to be one of the silliest excuses I heard so far to be anti NRA. Am I to guess that if McDonald v Chicago goes out way under the position presented by former Solicitor General Paul D. Clement, you will reject it because it is tainted by his previous case representation?

I am for bringing people into the fold.

Two weeks later I am still waiting for his response. I guess he ran out of No Compromise.

PS: While we wait, if a No Compromise follower can inform me what No Compromise group is out there with the track record of success and power that the NRA has, please indicate so in the comments.

  1. My main gripe with pro-rights people who demonstrate hatred of the NRA is they don’t really provide a better solution.

    Most of these people make claims about the NRA compromising too much, being willing to cooperate with our opponents when it’s convenient, and the NRA wants gun control laws on the book so they can make money.

    I agree with many criticisms made against the NRA (not the last one I listed though) but the bottom line is they get stuff done. Most people who make these claims tout Gun Owners of America as the group everybody should join. I’m a member of GOA myself and I can say this, they don’t actually accomplish much besides whining.

    The NRA often send out alerts and letters talking about upcoming gun issues. GOA once in a great while send out letters containing post cards that they want to me to send to my representatives. I understand they are restricted in what they can do due to money but they don’t even do the simply cheap things the NRA does. I have the NRA-ILA in my RSS reader and there are generally 10 new items a day. I also have GOA’s Current Alerts in my RSS feed and the last new item that appeared there was May 18th and the item before that was April 30th. It doesn’t cost anything to toss up alerts once you have the systems setup.

    If those who say everybody should leave the NRA due to principal would provide an equally effective alternative I might listen. Yes there are other good second amendment groups out there to support (the Second Amendment Foundation for instance) but they are generally specialized in what they focus on. The NRA is the 800 pound gorilla, they have the full time lobbyists, and they spend their time and energy on gun rights instead of complaining about other organizations they should be cooperating with.
