The interim executive director of the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action, Jason Ouimet, released the following statement regarding the special session in Virginia. READ IT ALL
“The National Rifle Association has a long history of working to reduce violent crime rates within the Commonwealth of Virginia. We commend the House and Senate Republican leadership for renewing the focus on putting violent criminals behind bars and a much needed refocus on mental health initiatives. Without a final report on the Virginia Beach investigation, this special session by Gov. Northam was a complete taxpayer-funded distraction. The discussion before the Virginia Crime Commission should focus on solutions that provide strong due process and put a stop to the continued politicization of law-abiding individual’s constitutional rights.”
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen’s group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation’s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services. Be sure to follow the NRA on Facebook at NRA on Facebook and Twitter @NRA.

I wonder, which is worse, Governor Northam’s “taxpayer funded distraction,” or Wayne Lapierre’s nra member funded exorbitant wardrobe and travel budget??? Between the two, at least Northam lets you know up front that he’s robbing the taxpayers blind. Lapierre eats, drinks and lives his royal lifestyle off the backs of the hard working, but totally blind and naïve, nra membership. This is also not to mention that Northam is completely out in the open about his anti-gun stance, whereas Lapierre makes a big show of telling his membership that he is a “staunch” defender of 2nd Amendment rights, while working tirelessly behind the scenes to undermine the rights of gunowners. How many times has the nra and the well dressed Lapierre thrown the rights of gun owners under the bus? Can anyone say “bump stock ban,” or “red flag laws” or “NICS check?” These are all proposals backed by the nra and the dapper Mr. Lapierre. I tell you, with leadership like this, it’s a wonder that American gun owners are still allowed to own BB guns and water pistols……………… JOIN GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA! and let Mr. Lapierre pay for his own clothing and vacations!
When Gun Owners of American post their financial records for all to see, I will continue to believe that they are just another organization trying to get their hands on some free cash.
