There are four branches of the federal government: The NRA, the legislative, the executive and the judicial. The NRA is the most influential and powerful.
It is only interested in what is best for its business. It yields tremendous influence with Republicans in Congress who bend over backwards to obey their financial backers, instead of listening to the majority of voters who gave them the privilege of representing them.
Why must every American wait in anticipation for the NRA’s pronouncements on the issue of any sensible gun control. Who put it in such a powerful position? It perpetuates the lie that Democrats want to abolish the Second Amendment.
