Any movement that goes on long enough or gets big enough eventually turns into a racket. The NRA is no different.
The National Rifle Association’s former second-in-command is breaking with the group’s orthodoxy and calling for universal background checks and so-called red flag laws in a new book assailing the organization as more focused on money and internal intrigue than the Second Amendment, while thwarting constructive dialogue on gun violence.
The former executive, Joshua L. Powell, who was fired by the N.R.A. in January, reinforces the kind of criticism made of the organization by gun control groups and state regulators, but it is the first critical look at its recent history by such a high-ranking insider.
It’s a good thing that gun control is dead in Amerika. With an all-out civil war bubbling hot, all sides now agree that they need as many guns as possible. That’s a good thing, right???
