One Henry Blodgett, editor-in-chief of Business Insider, thinks the NRA are a bunch of extremists.
HENRY BLODGET: The NRA’s extremism hurts gun owners, NRA members, and America (not worth a link; search the title if you wish)
Henry Blodget explains how the extreme rhetoric of the NRA leadership mischaracterizes the views of many NRA members and gun owners’ views on common-sense gun laws. Following is a transcript of the video.
The NRA has backed firearms registration, background checks, nonresident sales bans, mail order sales bans, new machinegun bans, gun-free zones, “assault weapons” bans, due process-free “no-fly/no-buy,” bump-fire stock bans, and enforcement of all unconstitutional anti-firearms laws (3 strikes), and CCW licensing. They opposed constitutional carry.
How “extreme.” “No virtue” there.
You want to see “extremism” in defense of liberty (which I’ll remind you is no vice?)
“Jews. Guns. No compromise. No Surrender.”
A group of Jews and friends who stand uncompromisingly for the right to keep and bear arms — and the entire Bill of Rights.
Yes, the NRA mischaracterizes the views of gun owners.
But not in the way you wish.
Funny how the media never contacts The Zelman Partisans for a sound bite.
