National Assoc. of Gun Rights?


NAGR's?

"Miss Pelosi - what are you and Mr. Schumer going to do?"

"I'll tell you what we are going to do. We are going to crush the NAGR's. We won't stop until every NAGR is gone."

They really should have thought of a better name.

Good for them. I hope even more is spent on keeping our civil rights. The public can't be allowed to "pick and choose" whose civil rights are allowed and whose are not!

They are rights for ALL of us.

Hey, at least it's not the National Institute for Gun Rights.

I will avoid NAGR at all costs. Dudley Brown is the executive director. He also Runs RMGO.

We agree on many things but I lay the blame on him for what is going on in Colorado right now. He did a hack job on candidates that could have won and would have represented us well.

He tried the same thing in the upcoming recall election.

Neither organization will get another dime from me. This year ends it with the continued poor decision making.

The name is awkward but they seem to be a fine group garnering more and more success in salvaging and expanding our gun rights. I follow them on Facebook.

Dudley brown who runs Rocky Mountain Gun owners is also the executive director for NAGR.

IMHO

He ran a smear campaign against a republican candidate in Colorado which pushed a guy I liked better but was unelectable into the election and was the root cause of an anti gun senator being elected. Which affected the nation.

Then he started a smear campaign against the guy that will be replacing Morse in Colorado District 11.

He was trying to make him look anti gun. Which is as far from the truth as you can get.

If he would cut the B.S. I would back both of them. Its a pretty common complaint about him here. At least for people that take a deeper look at him.

If he would stop trying to play dirty politics with pro gun politicians to get the one he wants in I would back both orgs again next year.

He knows that many people don't care for what he did and he doesn't seem to care and marchs on regardless of any damage he might do.

My ten month old could school Piers Morgan and all he can say is "hi" and other typical baby babble. That's hardly a notable task for someone to do, though I'm sure it was amusing to watch. :D
