Knock It Off and Protect the Wall

I’m surprised and disappointed at how quickly and blindly so many grab on to the misinformation about the NRA that’s put forth and paid for by Bloomberg and those foaming at the mouth to take away our Second Amendment. If you didn’t know, they are the source of all the lies that we see flooding the news. This tactic of intentionally spreading misinformation to discredit an enemy is no different from what we see happening in DC every day. We witnessed it during the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, and we see it happening now to Attorney General Barr. I would wager you abhor this foul play and shake your fist at it every day. Now ask yourself is what we are seeing with the NRA somehow different?  I think you will see that it isn’t.

This spreading of misinformation is an intentional tactic designed to weaken the NRA. Why? Because the NRA is the solid brick wall between them and our Second Amendment. Guess what? Those that believe the garbage and attack the NRA without knowing the facts are creating cracks in our wall. You do as much damage to our Second Amendment as Bloomberg and his ilk.

Of course, there is work to be done at the NRA. Of course, it isn’t a 100% perfect organization free of mistakes. There have been actions some won’t agree with or understand but don’t we all want the healthiest and most effective NRA we have ever had? However, some rip the leadership, the staff, and those that passionately volunteer their time on OUR behalf damaging the wall even further. You undermine not only them personally but undermine their work as well. Based on what? Falsehoods, gossip, and lies?

It is true, you don’t have all of the facts and all information. It’s important to keep in mind this is necessary for them to protect us as well as themselves.

The NRA is in the middle of MAJOR legal actions. They are wrapped up in lawsuits with NY Governor Cuomo, New York’s financial regulation agency, and NY Attorney General Leticia James. For example, the NRA is fighting back for the state of New York’s “blacklisting campaign” aimed at getting banks to cut ties with the NRA. James, while campaigning for her election last year, said in an interview “The NRA holds [itself] out as a charitable organization, but in fact, [it] really [is] a terrorist organization.” Now elected, she is coming after us. She has opened an investigation threatening the NRA’s nonprofit status. These legal battles threaten the very existence of the NRA.

The facts MUST be protected to ensure our success. The NRA can’t put out information or evidence that would in any way jeopardize our position in these cases. Is it a coincidence that the misinformation put out there that is causing the anxiety and anger towards the NRA is precisely the type of information that can’t be released to clear their name? It is more than a coincidence, it’s intentional. It is intended to cause the exact response we are seeing in the gun community with the intended goal of creating division, discrediting NRA leaders and bringing down the NRA-giving them free run to trample our Second Amendment.

“There are influential people in the gun community that are writing articles and saying it is all true” you say. I can’t speak for them, know what is in their heart or what motivates them to do so, but I can and will tell you what I think: They don’t know the facts! They are not privy to them, period. Does ego play a role? Perhaps. Do some naysayers just have to be in a fight? Perhaps. Could retribution be the motivation? Perhaps. Do some people just love the thrill of a scandal? Perhaps.

They may tell you they heard this or that from someone on the inside, but I must ask, how can you trust what has been divulged if they so greatly lack integrity, that they are leaking information in the first place? That alone puts their “facts” into question. How do we know said leaker is not a plant or paid off by those that are hell-bent on the destruction of our Second Amendment? If someone from the inside did truly leak information, it is a fraction of incomplete information intentionally absent of “the rest of the story.” Shame on them.

Another “scandal” surrounding the NRA is that of their CEO. I can hear it already! “Wayne LaPierre is paid too much!” So how much is the protection of your Second Amendment worth to you? I don’t know about you, but I want the person best suited, best gifted, most experienced, and most qualified to lead in the fight to preserve our Second Amendment. I also want to pay him enough to compensate for all the sacrifices and the threats to him and his family. Do you really want to change the General in the middle of a battle that we are winning to just to try and save a few dollars? Is putting our Second Amendment at risk worth it?

The CEO of the Los Angeles Philharmonic makes more than Wayne. The CEO of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts makes a lot more than Wayne. What has either of these CEO’s done to protect your Constitutionally protected rights? Nothing. By the way, both examples also operate on smaller budgets than the NRA. The President of the University of Chicago makes more than twice what Wayne makes. Believe it or not, these salaries are from 2014!! I wonder what they are paid now? Now, do you believe Wayne is paid too much? No, I don’t think so.

Yes, I am frustrated. I am discouraged by what I am seeing and reading out there. I have read article after article, social media post after social media post, and I just can’t take it anymore. It is painful to watch all of these forces weakening our wall. My brother and sister patriots so quickly losing sight of the decades of successes, un-grateful for all the sucker-punching of our NRA leaders on our “behalf,” and to see you turn against the one and only organization that stands between us and the loss of our ability to protect ourselves and our country.

Again, is the NRA perfect? No. Do we have some work to do? Yes, but for heaven’s sake, wise up to the masterful manipulation playing out and don’t fall prey to it. Don’t be a weak brick in the wall and please don’t be so quick to jump ship. Hang in there, we are all on the same side.

I am on the board of directors of the NRA, but these views are mine as a Second Amendment advocate.

Scientific Approach to Shooting For Only The Most Intelligent

FUNKER TACTICAL cut another SLAPPER for only the most intelligent shooters.  If you’re a rube, or you don’t have a minimum of a masters degree then don’t even click on the video below.  Honestly I wish I could set up some sort of a verification process, where a notarized copy of your degree could be uploaded for me to verify, before I gave you access to this video.  hahha just trollling you guys, check the vid:

So wild… the narration… the footage.  The marketing machine is running full speed at Funker, I love it.  Maybe I’m the only one entertained by this stuff, I don’t know.  I’ve blogged about Todd Fossey before, and his “data mining“.

8:14 – This is the type of stuff I do at home to make my girlfriend laugh.  But then I typically OVER do it and, she’s like “OK MIKE ahhaha THAT’S ENOUGH, I GET IT”.  I should probably start a training school.

Here’s the “trailer” for his school (Integrated Defense Strategies)… there’s talk about flock watching which piqued my interested naturally because I LIVE and breathe for that kind of talk.  And as he says “it’s not something I can explain to you, it’s something I have to show you”

If any of you want to do a cRedEnSHuLs check of Todd Fossey he has his and his team’s listed here on the website.  I’m not going to try and act like I know what goes into becoming an NRA certified firearms instructor, because I don’t… NRA Range Safety officer… again I have no idea but I bet it involves (at a minimum) telling people to keep their “booger finger off the bang switch”, I’ve never even heard of “NRA Certified Personal Protection Inside the Home Instructor”, it’s a long-ass title that sounded fake to me… but I just googled it and it checks out.

Thoughts? I sould pay Funker to make one of these videos for me someday (if he would stoop to that level). It would have to really stroke the hell out of my ego for the $10k he probably charges though… like I’m talking the narration would need to be so over the top, but completely straight faced that viewers would be like “Wait… I can’t tell if this is serious or not… is it? Ugh man I don’t know but whatever ENDO is selling here, give me 5 of them.”.
