Well put, RETG.
I can't believe that you guys are supporting the NRA ... after the huge battle to get McCain-Feingold overturned, the NRA is now selling out dozens of organizations that are not their size or longevity in order to be exempt from the law the Dems are concocting to gut the court decision!
The NRA is not supporting
this bill. They are simply not getting involved, which makes sense, since this isn't a 2nd Amendment issue. If they did, they'd be accused of going off the reservation.
The NRA is capable of striking fear into the hearts of legislators. Despite a modest lobbying budget, they are still the 800lb gorilla in this fight.
