The sun rises, the sun sets, and the NRA endorses another RINO traitor. Thad Cochran is the most recent bureaucratic coward that the NRA is sucking up to, but he will not be the last. I am sick of the NRA selling out conservatives to support these idiots.
The NRA couldn’t care less about whether their politicians are committed to gun rights or any other cause. All they really care about is money. You might remember back in 2010, when they were going to endorse Harry Reid before conservatives flipped out. What had Reid done to deserve their blessing? Secured a $61 million earmark for an NRA shooting range in Nevada.
There is no rational reason why any gun group would endorse Thad Cochran over Chris McDaniel. Cochran doesn’t give a rat’s a$$ about guns, but McDaniel has fought for gun rights in Mississippi by writing a State Senate bill to protect Mississippians from a federal gun grab. That is why the National Association of Gun Rights endorsed McDaniel. In their endorsement they said: “Gun owners need a leader that will fight tooth-and-nail to make sure that anti-gun legislation doesn’t even make it to the floor in the first place.” McDaniel would make gun rights a priority, and Cochran would not.
Cochran is the exact type of “Republican” that we need to run out of Washington. His only skill is feeding dollars to his powerful allies. Before earmarks were banned, Cochran led the entire nation in earmark requests. That’s why half the buildings in Mississippi are named after him.
Instead of taking a stand against Cochran’s greed, the NRA is rolling over for him. Cochran’s pork barrel spending is the only thing that the NRA cares about. They sure as hell aren’t supporting him for his record on guns!
NRA members better start holding their leadership accountable for this kind of crap. If they don’t, then they are just sheep like all the other libtards out there.
