I want to be on @NRA’s enemies list

I mean, a lot of columnists, people, and groups — including groups with denominational ties — are on the enemies list of the National Rifle Association.

The following organizations have lent monetary, grassroots or some other type of direct support to anti-gun organizations. In many instances, these organizations lent their name in support of specific campaigns to pass anti-gun legislation such as the March 1995 HCI “Campaign to Protect Sane Gun Laws.” Many of these organizations were listed as “Campaign Partners,” for having pledged to fight any efforts to repeal the Brady Act and the Clinton “assault weapons” ban. All have officially endorsed anti-gun positions. (here)

Some include:

United States Catholic Conference
United Methodist Church, General Board & Church Society
United Church of Christ, Office for Church in Society*

That’s a pretty good traget list…

So, what do I have to do, as a blogger, author, and Christian leader to get on this list?

This sort of goes along with the story from yesterday — where these right wing groups and leaders are marking out people they disagree with. Um….

  1. On one side, all these organizations, many with mass memberships, companies, celebrities etc – on the other side, just the NRA? Just the UMC (7.7 million in USA) outnumbers the NRA (4.3 million). Why does anyone listen to the NRA any more?

    • Why? Because they have lots of money (from gun manufacturers), and a small fringe group within the NRA that supports assault rifles, military large capacity clips, body armor, etc, control the NRA, and view it a right to protect themselves, not from criminals, but from the government. They are the same crazies that are tea party type members, viewing the government as the enemy.

  2. Maybe if we asked them they would put up a page where we can go and just sign up freely? I would also like to volunteer to be hated by the NRA.
