Why I Don’t Belong To The NRA

Even though I’m a firm believer in an individual right to own a gun, and am a gun owner, I do not belong to the National Rifle Association.

This pretty much explains why.

Brian Doherty’s excellent book on the Heller case, Gun Control On Trial, makes it clear the NRA tried to squash Heller for the simple reason that their name wasn’t attached to the case.  Now they’re trying to shoehorn themselves onto the work of Alan Gura, who successfully argued Heller before the Supreme Court.

The NRA is a disgrace.
