How To End The NRA

NRA

Ever find that the NRA has gotten in the way of sane, common sense rules? Ever think that we'd be better off with them gone? Well, we've tried making that argument to our congressmen, but they get too much support, votes and money from them to do anything but stand up for them and do their bidding.

That is until now.

There's a two pronged attack to get the NRA to self-destruct.

Obama and rifle

First: Have Obama come out in favor of the NRA. Have his tell us about all the good they've done and why he's proud of his membership -- so much so that he's urging all of his Kenyan and other Black friends and family to join. Bring on in the entire ghetto.

Secondly, he's got Sarah Silverman on his side. She's made this video which is sure to put those stuck on the fence to go flying over it and running for the hills, to burn their membership cards. Remember Groucho said he'd never belong to any club that would have him as a member. The NRA might take that same approach after watching this:

(Reuters) - Boy Scouts of America board members on Wednesday delayed until May a vote on whether to end a longstanding and controversial ban on gay membership.

The century-old youth organization had been expected to vote on the matter at a board meeting in Dallas on Wednesday. The Boy Scouts upheld the ban just last year but faced sharp criticism from gay rights groups.

"After careful consideration and extensive dialogue within the scouting family, along with comments from those outside the organization, the volunteer officers of the Boy Scouts of America's National Executive Board concluded that due to the complexity of this issue, the organization needs time for a more deliberate review of its membership policy," the Boy Scouts said in an emailed statement.

In the interim, the board will continue its consultations with other scouting representatives and will take up the matter at its national council meeting in May.

The Boy Scouts touched off fierce lobbying by groups both for and against changing the policy when it said late last month that it was considering removing the national restriction based on sexual orientation and leaving the decision to local chapters.
