Anyone who disagrees, be the first to provide credible and testable evidence – not just isolated anecdotes and opinions – to show why concerns about millions of anti-gun foreign nationals on a “pathway to citizenship” are unwarranted.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- It’s that time of year again when voting National Rifle Association members can cast their votes for a third of the Board of Directors. If this year is anything like years past, eligible members (those having five years of continuous membership and those who are Life Members or higher) will vote in the single digits, the Nominating Committee slate will carry the day, and Wayne LaPierre will once more secure a rubber stamp board.
AmmoLand has been posting articles about candidates to let us know who is running and what their qualifications are. Some are Nominating Committee picks and others are running after obtaining member signatures on petitions.
I’ll state up front I don’t have a dog in this fight. That’s because I only endorse candidates who unequivocally and correctly answer my Board of Directors questionnaire. No one is talking about the greatest threat to “gun rights” — a “pathway to citizenship” for alien populations that by all objective measures are “anti-gun.”
That said, a recent article characterizing the “new blood” as “the enemy within” by former NRA President Marion P. Hammer is uncalled for, obnoxious and flat-out wrong. To accuse them of wanting “to disrupt NRA, our mission and our cause” and to call their character and motives into question is inexcusable and indefensible. Based on comments under her swamp screed, most readers aren’t falling for it.
