Like I said in my previous post, I get it that there is no political will to defend these things, as much as I wish it weren’t the case. What I am a little irritated at the NRA for - and mind you, I am an Endowment Life Member - is that the NRA has taken a public position against them. I would have been OK with NRA simply declaring that they are not taking a position on bumpstocks. Maybe that’s unrealistic, but that’s what I think about it.
I understand one must pick one's battles, but there's a big difference between avoiding a battle you think you can't win, and jumping in to give aid and comfort to the enemy. Unlike the recently departed POTUS, I'm not going to renounce my NRA membership over this, but I can't justify donating any more money to an organization that supports efforts to infringe the right of the people to own and carry guns.
