This is a follow up to my previous post about Kevin Levin's rant against the new NRA president and NRA members. The video below is an excerpt from a speech by NRA's Executive VP and spokesman, Wayne LaPierre. I post it as a second response to Levin's post, and the comments that followed, suggesting NRA members who are concerned over the threat of tyranny (which is the basis for our Bill of Rights) and who jokingly refer to the Civil War as "the War of Northern Aggression" are "bats**t crazy." In one of the follow up comments, Levin called down a reader for saying "An unarmed citizen is a slave," yet apparently had no problem with another reader who suggested that the NRA folks are "one step away from a big old fashioned KKK rally." Wow.
This demonstrates how absolutely out of touch Levin and his elitists friends in academia really are. The NRA is 5 million strong and growing. I called the NRA yesterday to discuss upgrading my membership to lifetime status. I was told the switchboard was overloaded and I'd have a very long wait. The nice lady on the phone recommended I call back in a day or two. Poetic justice is the sweetest of all. By the way, this year's convention set a new record for attendees - more than 86,000 - almost 15,000 more than last year. I hope these out of touch elites keep on running their mouths.
If you really want to see who fills the membership rolls of the National Rifle Association, start watching the video below at about the 6:40 mark.
