re: #283 stpaulbear

Is the NRA participating in the protest, or are they afraid to show up?

They’re weaseling:

The NRA has yet to make any public statement disavowing the January 20th event or the various militia groups planning on attending. However, the NRA’s people and rhetoric are intertwined with the January 20th rally. The NRA put out a formal statement supporting the Lawless County resolutions, and former NRA TV personalities like Cam Edwards and Antonia Okafor are listed as speakers at the rally. The NRA has taken out billboards throughout Virginia ominously and baselessly warning of coming “confiscation” of firearms. As UCLA Law Professor Adam Winkler was quoted as saying, for decades the NRA has been pushing “overheated rhetoric about the second amendment protecting your right to rise up against the government … this is the natural result.”
