I know one thing. The NRA is leading the fight to retain our gun Rights. No one else has anywhere near the capability that the NRA has to lead this fight. And, they have to get funds from some where! The government can spend as many billions of OUR dollars as they want to destroying our Bill of Rights. The NRA does not have access to that kind of money. It takes money to fight money.
If the government loses in their attempt to ban guns, we will all owe a debt of gratitude to the NRA. But, if the government prevails (and, as I wrote earlier, they have the backing of the entire "Anti-gun" world), then we will have to decide whether we start crawling and obey Obama and his henchmen, or, whether we will become Minutemen like those who created America, and, be ready to fight. I don't see any alternative!
