This Sacred Organization is in Trouble

This would be an unacceptable fate for the organization, whose longstanding work in the realm of the Second Amendment has been indispensable.

For some reason, unbeknownst to the logical world, the liberal left seems to think that the National Rifle Association is training and arming mass murderers.

Okay, so that is a gross oversimplification of the truth, but it’s really not that far off, distance-wise, from the actual statements being made by these liberal lunatics.  In the wake of any major tragedy, Parkland or Vegas or Columbine or Sandy Hook, the left looks for a scapegoat.  In many of these cases, it will be a particular type of firearm, or a state whose laws allow for certain accessories.

The reason that these “weapons of war” is still available, however, is always pinned on the NRA – an organization hellbent on keeping our Second Amendment from being infringed by the radical left.

As the NRA defends our rights, the left hopes to tear a hole in the Constitution precisely in the un-infringeable parts.

Now, this sacred organization is in trouble, and it needs our help.

According to Rolling Stone, the National Rifle Association is having serious financial issues that may render it “unable to exist… or pursue its advocacy mission,” according to a legal complaint filed by the gun-rights organization against New York state.

In documents obtained by Rolling Stone, the NRA claims the state of New York subjected it to a “blacklisting campaign” that resulted in “tens of millions of dollars in damages” because it has lost insurance coverage, which it needs to “maintain its physical premises, convene off-site meetings and events, operate educational programs,” and “hold rallies, conventions, and assemblies.” Its inability to receive media liability insurance also jeopardizes the NRA’s TV programs and magazines, the gun group states in the complaint.

In May, New York financial regulators determined that the NRA was illegally selling insurance policies to gun owners that protected them from court costs after they fired weapons in acts of “intentional wrongdoing.”

The group claims these issues as life-threatening to the organization and said “it will be unable to exist as a not-for-profit or pursue its advocacy mission” if changes are not made.

“If their abuses are not enjoined, they will soon, substantially, succeed,” the suit read.

This would be an unacceptable fate for the organization, whose longstanding work in the realm of the Second Amendment has been indispensable.

Biden Speech Writers Salivate Over Emerging July 4th Narrative

The cringe cometh.

Whoever is in charge of the story arc over at the White House is really excited about the Fourth of July. This is Independence Day, of course; the day in which we celebrate our decision to kick the British off of the continent over their ever-more-dastardly taxation of the colonies. But, for Team Biden, the 2021 version of Independence Day is going to bring us freedom from the coronavirus. President Joe Biden urged more Americans to get their coronavirus vaccine Wednesday, warning they still had “more to do” in order to celebrate Independence Day with their families. “To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June,” Biden said. And his speech writers have been stewing on this hokey, on-the-nose narrative for a while. Biden first proposed the idea of allowing families and friends to gather for Independence Day on March 11, but he expressed concern on Wednesday the country was not ready. “If we let up now and stop being vigilant, this virus will erase the progress we’ve already achieved,” he said. We can only imagine what terrible puns and portmanteaus the Biden PR cabal will drop on us come July 4th: “One if by J&J, two if by Pfizer.” “If the Continental Army had has masks, so many fewer future Americans would have died from smallpox.” “You know what else is ‘Common Sense’?  Social distancing.” The cringe cometh, folks.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
