A few Notes on the NRA...

...from NPR, who featured that scumbag Richard Feldman, author of Ricochet: Confessions of a Gun Lobbyist. I talked briefly to Feldman once; then I went home and took a long hot shower to get the stench off. I'd sooner associate with Norwegian rats. Interesting comments at NPR, though, and worth reading through!

Heavn knows I have occasionally had my differences with the NRA, but I send them money every year. The NRA carries the freight for all of us, and all those gun owners who tsk-tsk the organization should be kicked on their butts for getting a free ride.

Alphecca has a nice wrap up on the book.

Monday is National Ammo Day, and as Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit notes, now you can finally buy something made by the Chinese that's supposed to have lead in it! I'm thinking it would be a good day to buy 1000 rounds of .22 ammo, just for fun fun fun.

I note the surprising number of comments on the Detonics press release...setting aside the issue of the press release itself, I have gone on record as saying the Detonics was a superior 1911 pistol, and I'd like to see the little CombatMaster back in production. As to any writer's competence to run anything but a word processing program, well, that's a whole 'nutha can o' worms!

I tend to agree with the questions about IL. I don't think it's a great idea to give money to economies run by our enemies, because it tends to foster the idea that we don't put our money where our mouths are.

I heard Feldman on "the only national show talking about guns" a few weeks back, on the iPod so I couldn't call in. I was sickened and angered by this mope.

He still does not understand the basic, fundamental tactic used by our enemies. When they are not launching a full-out frontal assault on us, then they love to use incrementalism - chipping away at us bit by bit.

Oh, the gun locks - which Feldman agreed to with Clinton to avoid a fight in Congress over making them mandatory - they're voluntary, so no one is making their use mandatory.

Anyone remeber when seatbelts were made mandatory in cars, but not their use? Then it was - oh, you must use them, but we won't enforce the law unless the driver does something else bad and gets pulled over.

Now? Well, it's click-it or ticket from your neighborhood Homeland (geheimstats) polizei - sorry, police.

Feldman never got that, still does not get it, and is trying to make money off his Quisling activities.

so does that mean that the NRA is going to give "Action Pistol" (aka the Bianchi Cup to USPSA to run?
