I can't believe anyone still gives money to the NRA. Choose a 2nd Amendment organization that isn't run by grifters and con artists. I'd much have my money go toward legislative action than paying for LaPierre's next Mediterranean vacation.

I can understand the frustration, but here's our opportunity to clean house and make things right. Part of the reason for the intervention is also to help push for restitution at such time as malfeasance is proven. If it comes to that, I would call it justice. Again, we are the ones to blame for this mess - that is, if we're being honest. We should've been more involved and more proactive over the last few decades. Now, here we are, bailing water with both arms. If the NRA goes under, I'm certain it'll kick off a domino effect with the other 2A organizations. The leftists won't stop, and none of those orgs are big enough to survive a focused, protracted attack if the NRA can't. LaPierre will be a memory soon enough, we need to replace the Board and begin rebuilding.

Leaving things on autopilot and hoping for the best rarely works out well. Look at what what happened to education. Look at what's happened in DC. It takes work to make sure organizations stay on mission and that corrupt dirtbags don't move in and entrench themselves. That's the hard part though - getting people to engage on the 'hard work' part.

The fight is over. Try and do anything and you'll be made an example of like Oathkeepers, Three Percenters, Capital Protestors, etc.

The opposition is too big and the rest of us, even with our sidearms and the rest our collection in the safe will do nothing.

We've become sheeple and are severely outnumbered by the low information crowd and those who suck at the teat of the government (other people's money... Our money)

The opposition owns the media, the press, and the educational institutions

We can talk all we want on these forums until we show up and try to do something.

Then they'll shoot us in the neck for no reason or charge us with felonies and take everything we have.

It's over and there is no hope. I'm ashamed of what has happened to our country as we watched... and for the life my 15 grandchildren will experience as we fall from liberty and exceptionalism to socialism.

Well aren't you a bright ray of pitch black!

Fight, JR.
Fight for your life!

Buzz Mills (Gunsite Owner) resigned from the Board of Directors of the NRA today

He's just the latest. Nugent jumped ship. Susan Howard as well. I think it's more akin to 'rats jumping ship' than anything else. I get more and more cynical the older I get, so I imagine this may have more to do with the D&O insurance policy lapse than anything else along the lines of honor and duty. If that had been the case, I would've expected resignations when the bankruptcy charade was perpetrated. As it was, that didn't happen, so you have to wonder why?Time to clean house!!!!

The above quote contains both facts and opinions. Some of the latter in the form of conclusions and predictions. From this start ..

The facts, such as selected tactics of the statists in suppressing any opposition - pretty well uncontestable:

  • made an example
  • shot
  • false and/or disproportionate charges

But far, far too soon to reach the tendered conclusions. Already, only 6mos in, 20 States are moving to signal opposition to any feral government attempts at disarmament. We know the States are a weak reed: States usually cave to threats of loss of highway funding. But 40% of the States already moving on this topic makes the outcome unpredictable. 40% on the same topic is all but unprecedented. More, there's a reason so many States have started signalling: the People of these States oppose feral government interference with Rights of the People. Lots of sheeple yes; but not all; not even enough for the wolves to feel safe at more than tackling a ram or sheepdog that gets too far from the edge of the huddle.

When an earlier post described some actions by Mr. Mills, I immediately put him on my short list. But what turned up in Mr. Mill's past dropped him out of my final cut.

Resigning due to lack of director insurance: I cannot blame anybody for that. But little sympathy for those who have participated in getting NRA looking too reckless to insure. This must include at least a large minority, probably a substantial majority, of the incumbent board.

I worked on the "Buz Mills for Governor" campaign in 2010 (I handled
the volunteers and events) and he's a good man. We all carried at
all the events, and if he hadn't ended the campaign early, he would
have been elected. I vote for Buz Mills.

Musings form the outpost........

I've run across many, many folks, and read many, many articles on the fact that, by and large, there's agreement that our Gov't school system is worthless. There's consensus that our children can't seem to do simple math in their heads, can barely read, write, or speak properly, have little working knowledge of science, know hardly anything about history or civics, and merely serve as vessels for storing leftist drivel until such time as they take their place in the ranks of useful idiots.

However, and here's the interesting part, I've never run across the parent of, spouse of, child of, cousin of, uncle of, or in-law of..... a worthless teacher! To a person, 'their' teacher is the epitome of dedication, devotion, knowledge, mentorship, you name it. Think about that. If the system is worthless, as any who have had children in it know, and it continues getting worse rather than better, how come it's so hard to come across any of the worthless 'educators' who are themselves making the system worthless?

The answer: It's the same as with politics. "The system is corrupt and everybody in it is corrupt.........except for my guy! He's the 'bees knees', the 'cat's meow'!" The reality is that in politics, 'your guy' IS part of the problem. You're just willing to ignore it because he brings home the bacon (or in our case: phony, worthless money). It's the same with the teachers. Your particular educator IS part of the problem. You're just willing to ignore it because there's emotional involvement/investment there.

It is also the same with the NRA Board. Those who were there as all of this unfolded are part of the problem. They either enabled it, ignored it, or were complicit in it. Any of those three conditions should, by rights, disqualify them from ever serving on the Board of the National Rifle Association again! Did any of them ring alarm bells? Did any of them go on record as standing against fraud and waste? Did any of them write an open letter to the membership and communicate with us about what was going on? Resigning when the ship is already half under water does not impress me in the least. How about letting us know we were about to hit an iceberg prior to us actually nailing it under full steam? They have all lost our confidence and they should all be replaced. Unfortunately, there's no other way to right the ship.

Anyway, rant over. It's time for morning cocktails at Havanajim's Outpost.

No.
There won't be anything to see or do.


Unless you wanted to stop in at Athena Gun Club and try out their simulator.
It's pretty awesome.
