The SRA claims on it's twatter page:

Quote:
We’re now the 2nd largest leftist organization in the US and we’re looking for more #LGBTQ and #BIPOC people of all ages and experience levels.
Interesting...and they have a local chapter.

From the SRA (without all the pretty Marxist graphics):

“If you are any of the following: working class, progressive, anarchist, socialist, communist, eco-warrior, animal liberator, anti-fascist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, PoC, LGBTQ+, or anyone else who is interested in learning about firearms and modern self defense -- YOU are invited to join the Socialist Rifle Association today!”

I think #canceldemocrats is a great idea, and very fitting. What's good for the goose is good for the gander...well, except it involves Dems, so they're unaffected...

They'll weasel their way out of this somehow....they always do.. Because the now pretty much spineless republican party will let them get away with it...

Based on the last many years of profiteering out of the NRA - its quite possible that the SRA takes a much more active role in protecting gun rights instead of profiting from just talking about protecting guns rights.
-The NRA is to gun rights as Al Sharpton is to racial equality.

The only reason I'm an NRA member is because a few places require that I be a member.

LOCATION ?

The NRA Headquarters is located within the D C Beltway, so they are a member of the insiders club using our money to enrich the leadership of the Association.

The NRA headquarters is about a mile away from me, several miles outside the Beltway. Really nice firearms museum, too. This part of Fairfax is nuzzled right up against the government teat, so it might as well be metaphorically inside the Beltway, so I do take your point.
