Los­ing their way

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

In the May 9 edi­tion, David Keene, Pres­i­dent of the NRA, wrote an ar­ti­cle about his group be­ing the lead­ing pro­tec­tor of the Sec­ond Amend­ment.

What Mr. Keene failed to men­tion is that the NRA gave Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Harry Reid, Ne­vada Demo­crat, $5,000 for his re-elec­tion cam­paign this past year and also sup­ported 56 Democrats in their bid for re­elec­tion. The rea­sons the NRA gave for sup­port­ing these left-wing Democrats is that they are pro­gun in Congress.

What the NRA doesn’t re­al­ize is that Mr. Reid and most of the other Democrats want to re­move the en­tire Con­sti­tu­tion from our Repub­lic by sup­port­ing and con­firm­ing some of the most left­wing fed­eral judges in the his­tory of our coun­try.

There is no doubt how re­cent Supreme Court ap­pointees Elena Ka­gan and So­nia So­tomayor will vote should any is­sue come be­fore the Court con­cern­ing the re­strict­ing of firearms. Both the these ap­pointees were sup­ported and con­firmed by Harry Reid in the Se­nate.

Af­ter the above facts were made known to the pub­lic, I have heard that thou­sands of mem­bers re­moved their names from the NRA mem­ber­ship. My wife and I are in­cluded in this num­ber. It is a disgrace how the once-re­spected NRA has been high­jacked by some of the lead­ers in this or­ga­ni­za­tion and have sold them­selves out to these mem­bers of Congress who will do any­thing to trash our Con­sti­tu­tion.
