Democrats and allies are looking to capitalize on turmoil at the National Rifle Association (NRA), the nation’s most powerful gun rights lobby, ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
The NRA, an important ally for pro-gun rights candidates, has been hit by a number of high-profile departures and a power struggle among its leaders, leading to questions about its role in the upcoming election.
“Their power is certainly diminished, and we see candidates reflecting that back,” Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, the grass-roots arm of Everytown for Gun Safety, told The Hill.
And yes, Wayne is responsible. But also all the others who wanting to see him out, do not care if the NRA goes down the drain as long as they get their pound of payback flesh. I am including other Gun Rights organizations rubbing their hands because they think they will get the NRA’s income and the Parrots With Gun who are just repeating the mantra of “Fuck the NRA” because that is what the cool kids are saying.
The wish to obtain instant results has led to some stupid mistakes and grand fuck ups when it comes to media perception. It was played grandiose rather than smart and the wound to all of us has been equally grandiose. Am I wrong? Nope, Wayne is still firmly entrenched while his opposition was and is being removed. The fact that rather than go to each BOA member, present the case and try to implement a change, we saw it “taken” to the The Trace and the New York Times for maximum exposure just as we are accustomed to see a political hatchet job from the Left against Conservatives.
And make no mistake: there is a snitch or working enemy operative inside the NRA. There is no way that all the records would suddenly go from the NRA HQ in Virginia, somehow bypass the Washington Post which is basically next door, and land in the desk of Bloomberg’s The Trace/NYT. I am almost willing to bet that two decades from now, we will see in Bloomberg’s bio that he managed to buy/insert somebody inside the NRA and create its downfall from the inside and the same time to pay or convince other organizations to badmouth the NRA to create dissension within the ranks and proving that Fifth Column works every time. And yes, if Wayne had acted better, the Enemy would not had that chance to be successful, but also if we had not behaved like Justin Beiber Fans, the Man Who Wants To Be King Of The USA, His Majesty Michael The B. would have wasted his time and money.
If the NRA goes down and shit hits the fan, I cannot guarantee that some of the people that see themselves as staunch supporters of the Second Amendment will be looked as such by the rest of the Gun Owners.
Arsonists are never seen in under a kind light.
