The Backfire Continues: NRA Breaks Fundraising Records In Wake Of Gun Control Demands

Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTHplan.com,

The NRA continues to rake in money in the wake of gun control activists vocally demanding the government strip away the rights of gun owners.  The gun rights lobbying group broke fundraising records in March largely thanks to the gun control crowd.

The numbers don’t lie either. The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund raised $2.4 million from March 1 to March 31 of this year, according to The Tampa Bay Times.  As the March for Our Lives movement captured the mainstream media’s attention because it fit their carefully crafted pro-government narrative, in the weeks after the Parkland shooting, the other side of the gun control debate enjoyed a big month of its own.

The $2.4 million haul is the most money raised by the NRA’s political arm in one month since June 2003, the last month when electronic federal records were readily available.

It surpasses the $1.1 million and $1.5 million raised in January and February 2013, the two months after the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Note that many of the NRA’s highest fundraising months are those after shootings when gun control Nazis seek to disarm the innocent over the actions of a lunatic. Another important tidbit to recognize about this particular fundraising month is that most of the donations, $1.9 million of the $2.4 million total, came from small donors who gave less than $200.  That means regular, everyday Americans are paying what little they have to avoid having even more of their basic fundamental human rights stripped away.

And much to the rights violators dismay, gun control groups haven’t been able to match the NRA’s fundraising. Everytown for Gun Safety’s Political Action Fund raised $13,580 in March while former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ Political Action Committee raised $129,589 in March, according to the Tampa Bay Times.  In fact, much of the demands for innocent people to give up rights is met with resistance and more guns flooding into the hands of Americans. 

The March for Our Lives group founded after the Parkland shooting has raised $3.5 million since February 18 via the online service GoFundMe, though that money was put toward organizing marches around the country. But big name companies, such as the fashion company Gucci has also publicly announced their own half-million-dollar donation. Those publicly disclosed donations total $2.5 million, meaning a large amount of the donations came from wealth celebrities or corporations.

I think some form of civil war is inevitable, especially with the entrenched sense of "entitlement" throughout society in the face of an approaching inability of Government to uphold all its promises and with a collapse of the pension system at all levels. There are going to be literally millions of bankrupt and starving Americans. The ability to defend one's family is going to be paramount. "Progressives" watch out.

Left the NRA years ago. NRA has a long history of compromise. 

 

Gun Owners of America has never, ever compromised an inch. Why I am a member of GOA! 

There are a number of videos of ant-gun politicians stating that the NRA is bad, but GOA is much worse. That's the best compliment you can give a 2nd Amendment organization.

The problem is that a 401K is literally gambling with pre-tax money, just like a money market account. You can lose everything if the market goes down and it's all legal. If they start confiscating saving and checking accounts, you'll see Washington and Wall St. burned to the ground.

I am matched on my first 5% of my 401k so I double my money no matter what. I can then choose to put it in the market under various funds which vary in risk, or in Treasuries which gain little but probably don't even keep up with inflation. Historically up until now I have made double my funds I contributed plus around 17% in the last 7 years or so.

There is decree after decree in Venezuela that there be this or that in the store shelves, meanwhile violence rages on the street.  We have nations banning knives.  What failing progressives simply fail to acknowledge is that civility isn't given it is earned.  Progressives are not satisfied until everyone is poor and in Venezuela that truth has erupted in a civil war.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-venezuela-oil-chevron-insight/chevro…

More decrees like something out of planet of the apes, when the shelves are bare and central planning demands more.

The leftists have made the schools: 

a.) juvenile detention centers housing students who should have been charged as criminals before they criminally shot other students

b.) special needs and the "special needs keep growing."

Police arrest parents, dragging one out, in school board meeting proposing charter schools

https://www.theblaze.com/news/2018/04/25/police-arrest-parents-dragging…

"The topic of contention was regarding the prospect of a charter school company, Energized for STEM Academy, taking over temporary management of ten of the district’s failing schools."

It is so convenient for school systems designed to fail!  Designed to always demand more and more resources and not be held accountable!

Parents, activists, and teachers’ union members expressed their opposition to the proposal of the charter school company stepping in as a possible solution, expressing fears that seasoned teachers might lose their jobs, and that the charter system won’t be able to meet the needs of special education students.

Here is a suggestion allow students to go to school to learn and send the "special needs" the developmentally crippled, the criminals to the public institutions and stop this progressive demand that EVERBODY FUCKING FAIL!!

Tell that to a cop or someone in the military. They have their reasons! As Americans, responsible citizens have their reasons too. 2008 was an eye-opener for me when a neighbor got 6 shots, the cops took 15 minutes to get there, missed the body, then later was called back out. How they got the 2 punk teens involved is something I never figured out, although the SCOTUS ruled that minors involved in such capital crimes shall be spared the Magic Needle. It makes me SICK!

1% of the population being willing to pick up a rifle and actually fight would probably be enough to crush the government.  3% would be enough to absolutely bitchslap it back into the last century.  The problem is what comes after, along with an *ahem* economic readjustment corresponding with the rest of the world saying "US Government bonds?  Yeah, they're in a civil war, so no."

Two niggers with a bolt action rifle totally shut down D.C. for months ! Can you even imagine what 10 or 20 or even 30 or more trained patriots could do in every city in America ?

I'm most curious to see what the liberal progressive Left does when their witch queen and all of her bitch minions are rounded up and jailed for life.

If real Americans begin to revolt, then those billion bullets will be brought into play.

 

You will be deemed terrists, and every possible measure of obfuscation, anti-truth,and disruption will be deployed to prevent any attempt to organize.

You will be slandered. you will be demonized. The truth will be deemed treason.

We are at war with the globalist vultures, hyenas, and other parasites and  effete carrion feeders dedicated to pulling down America so they can feed on our flesh.

***

Fuckem.

90% or so of Men are verminous worthless human culls that have no business stealing valuable air that belongs to real humans.

...

They want to steal our shit and they mean to get it. Fucking vermin.

***

Nuke 'em. Burn 'em. Nuclear bombs were invented to kill crazed radical assholes infected with pathological memes-sets.

High time to thin the herd.

...

YT made this modern world and we should end it rather than allow the retarded shit-skin mutts and the non-adaptive culls to manage to steal it all. They will then turn Man into a mass of churning idiot-shit men, and then an Earth filled with feral animals without style or grace; doomed to extinction.

Again,  I say, fuck 'em.

Darwin will take them all.

I thinx, anyway.

...

Caveat:

Sorry, kinda drunky and angrish. This assbutt-world pisses me off no end.

But, as my little teeny niece once  told me, "Uncle, You're only human when you're drunk".

From the mouth of babes.

...

And, as well-nourished young dolls usually do, she sprouted up and suddenly grew long legs.

And so then, after that sweet, so dear, and so brief, coltish phase, when young dolls don't quite know how to run those new long legs so well, and so they clomp 'round like so many little ponies, she then, quite suddenly it seemed, grew up to be a doll-and-a-half, with the dearest cute little teacup titties, dainty delicate ankles, an ass like granite, and sleek tapered legs. She soon made a good and lucky man her hubby.

She has since made a new family to strengthen our America.

She also makes a most excellent Beef Stroganoff, and that's very important in the great scheme of things, I thinx.

...

I'll happily drive 600 miles up to Portland for that Stroganoff, no question.

***

Her stroganoff- It's simply bliss.

If'n I have a heapin' platter of her Stroganoff on my table when the bombs fall, I'll die fat and happy.

'''

Not dead yet: but I still miss her delicious Stroganoff.

Nice stream of consciousness blogging !  And I say fuck 'em also.  Got to keep as much of the military on our side as possible.  DemoRats have been perverting the military for decades, and there's libetards in the leadership who will be more than happy to sic their underlings on Patriots.  The true Patriot leaders among the populace and the military will need to step forward, and I pray and think they will and by doing so seed the fields of victory.

No.  Just the opposite actually.  One 10 million man army can be defeated.  10 million, one-man armies can't.  Just look at what was successful in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.  Asymetrical warfare, ambushes on soft targets, etc.  You don't engage in force on force, ever.  That is exactly what the progressives don't understand.  If all i have is a small caliber, bolt action rifle, i am not out of the fight.

The organized militia got its butt handed to it at Lexington.  It was the swarm of the unorganized militia that shot the British Army to pieces after it raided Concord.  That swarm put Boston under siege.  The regular army that formed up after that siege lost most of its battles in the first years of the war.  Things did not turn in favor of the Americans until after Saratoga.

Our strength does not lie in some organization; it lays with we the people.   I have no issue with militias.  They are however susceptible to infiltrators and provocateurs, and they may very well be taken over by psychopaths.   That unfortunate set of circumstances will get whole units arrested or killed.   The militias that will form up to defend city streets, small towns and counties are susceptible to the same infections.  But they are local and their organization will be impromptu and less likely to be infiltrated.

All the one percent has to do to prevail, is kill the first man that kicks in their front door once the organized gun confiscation begins.  If they do that, the initiative will collapse.  Then the three percent can organize and clean out the swamp.

The gawdamfukn progressive liberal democraps are the most narrow minded short focused imbeciles in the face of the earth. In London the rughead mayor wants to ban knives. Shouldn't Boston ban rental trucks too? Wutta buncha  morons. Evil always finds a way to kill innocents regardless of the weapons. Their approach to treat a brain tumor headache is take 2 aspirin & never call them back   Fukn idiots
