Are there examples of the NRA protesting when a white person in a similar situation is shot? Honestly, I don’t know of any time the NRA has ever protested something like this regardless of the race of people involved. I think its fair to ask at this point whether the NRA is actually standing up for gun owners, or if they are just concerned with protecting gun manufacturers and retailers The Second Amendment Gun IS My Gun Permit Shirt They’re not concerned about the manufactures/retailers either, they exist to raise money for the Republican Party. There are far better pro-gun organizations that actually support lawsuits against infringements.

To be honest, it seems like their existence is no longer a means to an end, but it itself is the end. The roles have reversed.

Most of the younger generation of gun owners are not involved in the NRA for this very reason. I was a member of the NRA for a few years but there were too many instances of them blindly supporting politicians and fucking us on policy issues or legal battles.

I’ve now been a proud, long time member of the GOA and the SAF and haven’t looked back once. The Second Amendment Gun IS My Gun Permit Shirt I would also argue that the NRA has only looked out for LARGE gun manufacturers as they recently made it into “range talk” for not backing up the manufacturer of a boutique pistol called the “Honey Badger”.
