Ed-vise: NRA Club

A lovely GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Yup, sun is up and birds chirping. Even if a “bucket of rain” is slotted for the week…uggh! Still a GREAT MORNING!

Monday Musings Ed-vise today. Cause it’s MONDAY! So GET AFTER IT!

So, the NRA met this weekend.

Pops was a proud member of the NRA. I think he even bought me a lifetime membership to the NRA. Reason I say that is the NRA magazine (rag) used to come to the house at one point. Pops would do stuff like that once in a while for causes he believed in.

I checked out the webpage for the convention. Took a look at the speakers.

I noticed a couple things.

First, all the ones who were specifically speaking about guns, with few exceptions, NONE of them looked happy. They all had some deep dark scowl going on. I don’t mind sporting their favorite gun or whatever, but the scowl…COME ON MAN! If you want people to join your club, look like you want them to. Show how inviting you are versus how hostile you look sporting your pistols or semi-automatic rifle.

Second, all of the people talking about guns are actually CERTIFIED INSTRUCTORS. Like they went through actual training to obtain a certification (piece of paper) that says something to the affect of “Trained Instructor.”

That means they went through an actual class on firearms safety. Not just that but they went through another bunch of classes on how to teach firearms safety. Then, they did the required amount of extra stuff to obtain and maintain their certification for being an instructor.


So, it begs the question: Why is the NRA so opposed to a background check for the average yokel that wants to buy a firearm?

Why does the NRA have a person jump through all those hoops to become a certified instructor but will oppose ANY type of ANYTHING to try and keep guns out of the hands of someone who shouldn’t have one?

So, I was Musing over the weekend that if a law was written that said “you can’t have a firearm unless you have been vetted by the NRA,” the NRA would have NO problem with that. Especially if the NRA was allowed to charge a fee for the vetting. Because if you know anything about lobbying organizations, you’d know it’s ALWAYS about the money.

I’m just saying

That’s it for today. Be the person a stranger would do CPR on. Check in on each other and remember a number that cannot sit still is a…ROMAN NUMERAL!!! BWAHAHAHHAHA…Hail Caesar!
