NRA falling apart

NRA falling apart

Postby Omnitheo » Nov 30th, 2018, 1:04 pm

In the wake of far too many gun related tragedies over the last few years, support for the NRA has dwindled.

Despite the NRA’s massive $30 million dollar contribution to Donald Trump’s campaign, the administration is poised to finally ban bump stocks, and the NRA’s income dropped by $55 million!

Shortly after the blue wave hit the elections, the NRA began implementing austerity measures throughout the organization, including layung off tv personalities on NRATV.

Good riddance.

I am sure recently they have struggles they’ve not encountered before. I think their budget though is still around $350M down from 400+M, down ~15% and far from gone. Facebook and Tesla stocks have fallen even more than this. I think the news now might be about Russians who donated money.
Justin Trudeau? NO! Trust in Judo!

While the group contributes to members of both parties, the lion's share goes to the GOP. Of the top 85 members of Congress with the most career NRA contributions, 82 are Republicans, according to a database from the Center for Responsive Politics.

Look at all those Rs

Then we look at how they did in the midterms...
https://www.cnbc.com/2018/11/09/gun-con ... y-nra.html
After heavy spending by both sides of the issue, gun control proponents picked up seats in House midterm races as gun rights advocates lost ground.
Based on House voting records tracked by the National Rifle Association, more than two dozen gun rights proponents won't be returning to the next Congress.
House Democrats expanded the ranks of gun control advocates in their caucus and pledged to to take action on gun control after a recent string of mass shootings, including a late-night assault at a California bar that killed 12 people.

Meanwhile, House Democrats expanded the number of gun control advocates in their caucus. The new majority includes dozens of candidates who support gun control, including Lucy McBath in Georgia, whose 17-year-old son was fatally shot in 2012 and who made gun violence the centerpiece of her campaign.

At least 17 newly elected House Democrats back stricter gun laws, including Jennifer Wexton, Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria in Virginia, who defeated incumbents backed by the NRA. In Colorado, Democrat Jason Crow beat GOP Rep. Mike Coffman, who received an A rating from the NRA and more than $37,000 in campaign contributions from the group.


Americans have spoken. More want gun control, and they’re turning their backs on the disgusting NRA who serves to put profits ahead of the lives of innocents.

The NRA has shown itself to be completely out of touch and incapable of evolving – just like the dwindling number of hard-core supporters they might have left. While their membership is likely to drop off significantly as they become more and more unconnected, there will still be some hard-core suckers who carry on insisting the NRA is still politically meaningful or relevant.

I don't get the reasoning behind the 8% that want to loosen the laws - seems insane to me.

Seems to be at least one of the common denominators with NRA supporters and Trump supporters :smt045

... with simply being woefully under-educated and/or stupid another possible explanation - and that's the truth.

NRA memberships skyrocket when there's an anti gunner in the White House, this little drop in memberships is meaningless, in fact the poster clearly has an anti gun agenda and is a failure at pushing it. Below is the actual NRA attendance statistics graph. By the way Canadian gun owners are growing in numbers and support the NRA for their education and safety training, youth programs, and the their NRA Women's programs.

Revenue at the National Rifle Association fell by $54 million in 2017, a 15 percent decline that coincided with a record number of mass shootings in the U.S. and a rise in spending by gun-control groups.

The gun-rights group posted an even steeper drop in membership dues, which fell 22 percent, or $35 million, to a five-year low, according to documents the NRA filed with the Internal Revenue Service this month.

"Real Stats" [icon_lol2.gif] Every time there's a mass shooting because of some psychotic NRA membership goes up not down, every time there's an anti gun president gun ownership and NRA membership goes up. American gun owners will never give up their Second Amendment, perhaps Omnitheo you should research what is involved in changing the US constitution to abolish the the Second Amendment, rather than taking the word of some left wing political rag called Politico. To amend the constitution there has to be a 2/3 majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives plus 3/4 of the State legislatures. No the second amendment is carved in stone and it's not going anywhere.

You clearly do not understand the second amendment, as written and as reaffirmed but the supreme court of the United States. It's not what anti gun liberals want it to be, it's the intent of the founders to have a way to throw off a tyrannical government, in fact they wanted the people to be equally armed, and to allow the people self defense, BTW there were automatic rifles back during the founding of the US. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2016/ ... s-drafted/

Good riddance.

A ridiculous assertion. In fact, more propaganda to try and undermine this human rights organization. The NRA consists of good and decent people . They have nothing to do with people who kill others. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people are killed and maimed each year in the USA with automobile use and abuse and not a peep. Motor vehicles are used maliciously all the time to commit homicide, suicide, kidnappings, sexual assaults, mowing down pedestrians, transporting illicit goods and stolen goods, etc. The fuel they use fuels warfare and strife and might even being destroying earths atmosphere. Public transportation, bicycles and walking are available as an alternative. But the smug condescending narcissistic anti-NRA people feel so morally superior. Such hypocrites.

It should go without saying that trying to prevent school shootings as opposed to trying to discredit families of slain children is the morally superior position
