What the Hell Is the NRA Up To?

Authoritarians don’t have the demographic leverage yet to repeal the Second Amendment outright, so for now they take a “death by a thousand cuts” approach to disarming us. One of many tactics is to deny the right to bear arms to anyone accused of domestic abuse, which requires no more than the word of an embittered spouse, and allows liberals to use their moronic but weirdly effective “War on Women” rhetoric against anyone who puts up resistance. Bluegrass Bruce reports:

Last week, the Governor of Vermont signed a law allowing police to confiscate guns from anyone under a judicial order for domestic abuse. This means that men and women accused of domestic crimes in Vermont could lose their Second Amendment rights before ever seeing a jury.

Similar laws have passed this year in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Louisiana. In each of these states, local gun groups protested the laws arguing that they not only violate the Second Amendment but also of contradict the basic concept of “innocent until proven guilty.”

Of course they protest. Firearms are rarely used in domestic violence situations. This about disarmament, not domestic violence.

But one gun group has taken the side of the statists: the NRA.

Over the past year, the NRA has been quietly helping legislators pass this kind of domestic violence legislation, either by promising not to oppose the bills or by actively working with the bills’ liberal sponsors. After the Minnesota bill passed, Minnesota Democratic State Rep. Dan Schoen said: “The NRA has been really good to work with on this particular issue. It pains me to say, but they have been.”

It is not entirely clear why the NRA is doing this. Until recently, it strongly opposed this kind of legislation and was successful in preventing the passage of these laws. Perhaps its change of heart has something to do with its recent outreach to women, or maybe it is another one of its lame efforts to appear “bipartisan”.

It could be that the defeatist RINOism that has left the Republican Party in ruins is an infectious disease. Fellow NRA members are advised to keep an eye on what our membership dues are financing.

    Meh. It is unconstitutional and the NRA knows it. They get brownie points from our betters, and they know it will one day make it to SCOTUS.

    Just passed out of committee. If it becomes law, ANYONE could drop a dime on someone and get their firearms confiscated without due process. Oh, one could pony up their own cash to fight it in court, but the burden of proof would rest squarely on the accused. Any family member, friend, co-worker, neighbor, hell anyone that knows you. Or any cop, any healthcare professional. All they have to do is call the Department of Precrime. Good luck getting them back.

    Second time in as many months that the NRA has stabbed us in the back.

    Friends, we are sure as hell on our own now. REALLY on our own. Every institution is turning against those who hold individual liberty and religious freedom (specificially, Bible-believing Christians) dear.

    Think about what ammo (pardon the pun) this gives them. They can say “Look, you are SO extreme, even the churches and the NRA and the Republicans are against you!” This is when, much as it will pain them, they’ll just have to call us out as a terrorist group, bust us on “hate” crime charges and start putting us away.

    Mark my words, this isn’t far off now. I never thought I’d see the day.

    THIS is why I don’t give to the NRA. They rake in millions every year, yet time and time again they do little or nothing to stop the encroaching removal of the Second Amendment. Sure, lefties demonize them every chance they get; but somehow they’re still allowed to continue to exist and grow. Sound fishy? “Follow the Money”, as they always say, people.

  15. Professor Hale says:

    It might be more helpful to not refer to the NRA as if it is a person with volition to act on its own. Everything you blame on the “NRA” is the willful act of a person at the NRA. That person has a name. Naming that person IS useful. Organizational policies don’t spring up out of thin air. People have to write them. Guys in charge have to approve and distribute them. management has to enforce them. These things are not accidents.

    Funny how now they worry about “innocent until proven guilty” but they say nothing about the mandatory background checks!

  18. Mr. Mentalo says:

    Persons at the NRA collectively make these decisions, be it Wayne LaPierre or whomever. As you say, they come up with the plan, write it, implement it…a lot of people involved.

    In other words (and accurately), it’s the NRA.

    Not another nickel to that turn-coat organization.

  20. Mr. Mentalo says:

    Because it is the innocent and the law abiding citizen that they WANT not to have weapons. I can hardly believe the NRA has gone to the dark side, but looking back, it’s been in the works for a while.

    Nothing new here. In the mid 1980’s, the RINO’s lead by the despicable Bush 43 pushed through the law that banned new NFA arms from being registered effectively cutting off access to full auto weapons to the public while making them available to the newly militarized police. In the 60 years prior, the time that the 1934 NFA had been in place, ZERO full auto registered weapons had been used to commit crimes. The NRA, specifically, Wayne LaPierre, then with the ILA, helped push this through. I dropped my NRA membership then and have not gone back since.
