or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” – Benjamin Franklin
I have addressed this concept previously, with regard to the threepers, Oathkeepers and others fighting amongst themselves.
Don’t you think this is exactly what the Administration, Bloomberg, the Brady Bunch and every other rights-restricting group wants?
I recently received an email with a ‘news release’ attached (in part)…
Dudley Brown and his “National Association for Gun Rights” (NAGR) have built a reputation by attacking every other major gun rights organization and even pro-gun politicians, to the detriment of the gun rights movement. His rhetoric has done more to marginalize Second Amendment activism than all of the slanders from gun prohibition lobbying groups combined.
Now Dudley has spewed his venom toward Alan Gottlieb, a true champion of Second Amendment advocacy with a proven track record of accomplishment. Gottlieb is founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA).
In his latest effort to raise money for his own self-aggrandizement, Dudley Brown has launched a vicious canard against Alan Gottlieb, accusing the veteran gun rights advocate of “Leading the fight for national gun registration.”
Alan Gottlieb has never advocated for gun registration in his life. His legislative efforts have been to prevent that, and Dudley knows it. (…)
Now I’m a member of the NAGR, and post a link on my blog I am a Life Member of the NRA, and post a link to them, as well. I also link to the Second Amendment Foundation, whom I support.
(And I know nothing as to the accuracy of the charges listed in the above release.)
With regard to the NRA, I read with interest (and agreed with) In the MIDDLE of the RIGHT blog. It seems B (of said blog) complained about being sent unsolicited a POS cap and folding knife, accompanied by a request for a donation. The materials were manufactured on the PRC (!)
I don’t blame him for being pissed, both at the cheesy effort, and the use of communist-made materials to solicit funds.
NRA - seriously?
Personally, I tire of the emails and snail mails from them trying to sell me crap and solicit additional funds. I don’t have any extra money to give anyone, but I bet they would save a bundle on postage and tchotchkes and have more money for their political efforts if they would just have a box on their solicitations to check to spend such funds for rights-preserving purposes!
Let’s stop the infighting, backstabbing and unnecessary spending and get on with the task at hand.
Or I fear Dr. Franklin may be right.
