    The NRA isn't the one winning, it's the people themselves that are winning!

    Now I'm not an NRA basher, in fact I'm a life member, BUT the SAF has been leading the charge and the NRA has been following - Heller, McDonald, etc...


    I also belong to SAF, GOA, CCRKBA

    Good for NRA and SAF!
    Folks bash the NRA because they perceive another org leading the charge in a battle.
    Mature view of the situation is to maintain blocking action as another unit passes through NRA lines.
    Stepping in to assist as needed like the recent Colorado recalls.
    Money is tight and organizations are mostly funded by member donations.
    If another org throws their wallet into the fight, NRA spends elsewhere.

    In this case, the NRA winning IS the people winning. They may have some help, or be the group that is just helping, but either way, it is good to see positive momentum.

    I liked to think of it as each gun-rights advocacy org is a different tool in the box, but Rick's comparison about different roles on a football team is an even better one. The NRA is both Offensive and Defensive Line. GOA and JPFO are, to my gut, the guys going extra-deep and distracting the other team's D. SAF/CCRKBA and Heller's plaintiffs are the ones who actively run the football...
