Elderly Gun Owner Slams NRA: ‘Mindless Ranting Herd’
A gun owner in his 70s and former member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) slammed the NRA for its “wild outlandish propaganda ranting, and lying about taking away everyone’s guns.”
New Hampshire resident Arthur Bradbury wrote a scathing letter that was published by SeaCoastOnline:
The NRA has taken a stance over the AR-15 saying it is a necessity to have to protect your family using magazines of 30+ rounds. (These magazines are standard with the rifle.). This is, other than being a lie, probably the most ignorant, stupid stance I can imagine.
There is no reason to have any magazine with a capacity of more than 4 rounds. New Hampshire hunting laws limit magazine capacity in a semi automatic rifle to four rounds
As a gun owner for some 70 years, and having been involved in target shooting from age 11 using the NRA advancement system using a .22 on a 50′ range to hunting with 30.06, .243, and a number of other calibers, to qualifying expert in the Army Infantry on every personal gun the Infantry uses, to varmint hunting today I find the NRA to be totally unreasonable in their entire approach. The NRA has no thoughtful input, no attempt at any kind of reasonable contribution to the subject.
I am a Member of the NRA which was a fine sportsman’s organization 50 years ago. It has turned into some kind of out of control mindless ranting herd that is dividing the country without any consideration for the seemingly endless mass killings, and the contribution guns, and lack of control of sensible ownership.
They have made no, zero, nil intelligent contribution to address what the Students of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School have begun.
Calling these extremely intelligent, and well informed young people names is displaying the immaturity of so called adults while the students take the high road.
When will there ever be any mature, intelligent discussion on this subject offered by the NRA, or the so called gun nuts?
Oh and why the way the 2nd Amendment does not preclude regulation of guns.
