I don't know if you watched this charade, but it was truly sickening. CNN wrote a "script" for the students to follow. One who refused to do so was "uninvited" to participate. The place was filled with mindless liberals, screaming epitaphs and shouting down anyone who didn't toe the liberal line.
In the aftermath, Delta Airlines and United Airlines have terminated their relationship with the National Rifle Association, and more of that "duck and cover" is sure to follow.
below is a clip from a British newspaper, exulting that America is now adopting sensible British views on the evils of gun ownership.
Which companies have cut NRA ties?
On Thursday, the family-owned First National Bank of Omaha said it would not renew NRA-branded credit cards, citing "customer feedback".
Replying to @dibshear and 19 others
Customer feedback has caused us to review our relationship with the NRA. As a result, First National Bank of Omaha will not renew its contract with the National Rifle Association to issue the NRA Visa Card.
Enterprise Holdings, which owns the rental car brands Alamo, Enterprise and National, also said discounts offered to NRA members would end on 26 March.
Other companies distanced themselves from the NRA on Friday and Saturday.
Those included MetLife Insurance, the Avis Budget Group, home security firm Simplisafe, two moving brands - Allied Van Lines and northAmerican Van Lines - and Symantec Corp which had offered discounts for its LifeLock identity theft product.
The United States today allows citizens the right to own personal firearms. although that right is heavily regulated and under constant attack by the socialists and their off shoots. The only reason we have the rights we do are the efforts of the National Rifle Association.
Cut off the contributions to politicians, and the votes and financial support these same politicians get from NRA members, and they'd do a Lindsey Graham in a heart beat. Without the funding and the votes, they would "see the light" and we'd be hiding weapons or turning them in to the smelters, just like the Peoples Democratic Republic of California. With the exception of some younger politicians, veterans of the sand wars who haven't yet been corrupted, that's how D.C. operates.
I know, there are all kinds of gun owners out there who don't like this or that the NRA has done. With just under 5 million members, it is not possible for the NRA to make every shade of gun owner happy. Some of the duck hunters, for instance, are angry the NRA doesn't support bans on weapons other than shotguns, because as long as the duck hunters can have their shotguns, they don't care about anything else. That's a very common mentality, and a short sighted one.
Some of the more stringent supporters of gun ownership are livid because the NRA agreed to laws , any laws, concerning gun ownership. But all of these people are riding on the coattails of the NRA and it's accomplishments. The bottom line is that the NRA supports politicians who are receptive to our views. Without that support, most of these same politicians would simply abandon gun owners out of political expediency. Anyone who doubts the NRA is essential to maintaining the rights of gun owners just needs to take a look at how violently the crowd at the "CNN Town Hall Meeting" reacted to Dana Loesch. They were playing to CNN's script, and CNN is an organ of the left.
Stick to the script!
All this screaming, all the mindless misbehavior orchestrated by CNN, is purely political.
These pampered kids and their liberal parents nestled in comfy suburbia down in Florida can't handle the thought that they aren't exempt from the societal breakdown taking place all over the country. This kind of thing is only supposed to happen to "the great unwashed", which is the rest of us.
One American News editorial:
Might be time to dust off your copy of Ragnar's book:
It's an old book, but the principles are still valid.
Based on what happened when the Feinstein Gun Ban was implemented in 1994, it might be a good idea to stock up on standard capacity magazines. Putting away a goodly amount of ammunition for the weapons you have would not come amiss.
I know I've said this before, but it seems to be a good time to say it again.
Since President Trump seems to be backing off on his support of gun rights and the NRA, if the left can cobble together some rag and get it past both houses, he might sign off on it.
If so, and 17,18,19,and 20 year olds are deprived access to AR-15's, I guess they will be letting a hell of a lot of young men and women out of the military. But in this country, stranger things have happened.
Most of these kids couldn't tell you who their Senators or their Representative are:
Two good ones from "Gorge's Grouse" blog.
Quote for the Day:
"I am trying really hard to ignore the noise the media is making right now about guns. The whole thing is based on nothing but virtue signaling, putting the blame anywhere but on themselves and seeking to assuage their guilt for not fixing the problem long ago by simply putting a dam lock on the front door and controlling access to the schools. But they would rather put on their rose colored glasses and sing cumbaya while they harbor criminal sociopaths in their midst, instead of really fixing the problem. Because like in every other one of their causes, if the problem is fixed and goes away there no longer is a justification for their bleeding heart existence."
