NRA Putting GOP Establishment Over Gun Owners At 2015 Annual Meeting [More]
Seriously? Some weren't invited? I'd heard that about Rand Paul due to a NAGR connection, but have seen some apologists claiming it was due to a "schedule conflict," and Workman is reporting
"The NRA reportedly could not accommodate Paul [and] None of this gets any traction with NRA leaders or the grassroots members attending the convention this weekend."
The truth of this is important to determine. If the allegations bear out, it merits traction and more. We need "NRA leaders" presenting options, not suppressing them.
That said, in terms of Paul, his "don't call it amnesty" position is one that needs to be elaborated so we can figure out what we should call it when he recommends an "eventual pathway to citizenship
." How will that result in anything but "eventual" evisceration of legally-recognized RKBA? And from what Larry tells me
, the position will affect that "A+" grade.
When I was on Joe Miller's program
, he was under the impression that, like GOA, NAGR was also one of the groups warning against the illegal immigration threat to gun rights. If so, I can find no evidence
they are even mentioning that, or distancing themselves in any way from Paul on it.
