I've been thinking (yes, thinking). I'd like take the half-full approach and believe that the majority of the members of the NRA are actually fairly level headed, ordinary folks. Why can't a band of them get together and say something like, "I've been a member of the NRA for ____ years. I like hunting, I like shooting for sport, and / or I like to collect guns, etc. My mother / father taught me about guns and I plan to do the same with my son / daughter. I believe that the 2nd Amendment is a Right, but something needs to change. We need to have a serious talk about things"?
Heck, even George W. Bush told the NRA to get bent when they referred to law enforcement as "jack-booted thugs" or something like that. There has got to be some rational members out there in prominent positions who should step up and speak for what has to be the core membership of the NRA. We've heard about how many new members they have had in the last few weeks. Are people also leaving them in droves?
Is there any room for such a moderate point of view within the NRA?
Just a thought.
