Well, uh, yeah. I don’t see anybody there representing my interests with my quaint “shall not be infringed” naiveté. I don’t see anyone making sure they “get this right” for those of us “extremist hatriots” who believe in the Second Amendment as articulated by the Founders.
And two things make me think I won’t.
First are these sentiments from NFATCA board member Dan Shea:
There are a few misguided crusaders on the pro-gun side who cross the line; probably the most dangerous people there are to us because they will sacrifice anyone and anything to their generally misguided and usually self-serving agendas.
"Self-serving," Mr. Shea? The liberty I’m going after will apply to all. Sorry, I’m just not a member of your exclusive five-plus-figures firearms club. Still, “misguided” is one of the nicer critiques.
One more thing that's a wide-open secret in the upper levels of the NFATCA: Dan Shea, current and former board member of the organization and its de facto president and ruler for life -- the power behind the scenes -- and Big Heap Editor Mojo of Small Arms Review is the ATF snitch who "ratted out" R.A. Bear and sent the agency on an expensive years-long chase for a child's stuffed toy.
Well-founded rumor has it that Shea has his own legal problems and was trying to curry favor. Licking the hand that otherwise would have spanked him. You're big on threats, Dan. Go ahead and threaten to sue me and let's see if we get past discovery.
Send any lawyers' insincere growls to:
PO Box 926
Pinson, AL 35126
Looking forward to it. Just one more scandal the ATF is trying to desperately keep the lid on.
NOTE: The original post incorrectly stated that Dan Shea was past president of the NFATCA. The language above reflects his true status.
