Haven't yet received confirmation of my press credentials for the NRA Convention in Nashville.

"It's Vanderboegh! Try to ignore him."
Of course I'm about as popular with them as a skunk under the the front pew at church on Sunday morning, so maybe that has something to do with it.

Have they issued them in years past? I see no reason for them to ignore one of their (doubtless) least favorite gadflies.

I hope The NRA denies your application for press credentials, since you are obviously biased against The NRA and ridicule them at every opportunity.

Oh well, you're just added to a long list of friends I've alienated. By the way. I did read your post below. You're right to think what you do about the NRA. I'm right to think what I do, too.

Goodbye again I won't be commenting any more on your blog. I know that will be welcomed by most of your folks. All I seem to do is piss off folks.

The NRA is in business to STAY IN BUSINESS and to keep the money rolling in. If the 2nd Amendment was to be declared by the Supremes to be THE LAW OF THE LAND once and for all, there would be no need for the NRA to even exist. I cannot begin to imagine how much money rolls thru the NRA bank account and into the pockets of the rulers of that group but it has to be a LOT.

The NRA no longer speaks for me. My money now goes to other groups such as Oath Keepers. At least I know they'll be standing the line with me when the time comes.

Mike, So they DON'T issue you a press credential? So what? When have you ever let that stop you before? Yes, it greases the skids, and makes life a little easier, and gives you a little more access. But if not, you do what you can, when you can, with what you have.

To quote a presidential slogan, "Give 'em hell, Harry."

OGB, you haven't alienated me as a friend. I'm still here. We can disagree without getting pissed off about it. We've been through too much together. You just need to understand that I make a sharp distinction between the people who belong to the NRA in good faith and the sellout leadership who abuse that good faith every stinking day.

Organizations show their openness and their tolerance by allowing critics to attend their procedings.

If NRA does not provide press credentials, it shows them to be a closed, intolerant, group that proves the points you have made in previous posts.

I haven't received my member credentials so I can't imagine that they have found the time to send any others. It matters little anyway. I will personally find a way to defeat the monarchy and get some decent people elected to the board, with a little help from my friends!

Keep 'em rolling!

Well, I guess my opinion will go over like a lead brick.

For many years, I was disappointed with the N.R.A. However, I've been pleased with them since the Sandy Hook shooting (or False Flag or whatever it was.) The N.R.A. has stood our ground rather righteously, it seems to me. I've not seen any evidence of compromise coming out of them during the past two years. If anything, the N.R.A. has been determined to not give an inch in any compromise legislation.

Today, the only area where I differ from the N.R.A. is on federalizing concealed carry under the guise of reciprocity. This legislation sounds like a good idea, but once concealed carry is federalized, a whole new arena of play is opened for those of us who carry a weapon about our person regularly. I am uneasy about federalizing concealed carry in law. It shouldn't be anymore necessary to federalize concealed carry reciprocity than it is to federalize drivers license reciprocity.

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a Patron Member of the N.R.A. and a life member of Gun Owners of America, the latter of which I consider much more true to the Second Amendment, but not economically viable to do much about it in the political arena.
