    Apparently the NRA sent out fliers to District 25 in support of Dennis Bonnen.

    "The NRA has sent out..." is all he said about the source of the flyer.

    Something stinks. There are no pictures of the reverse or the envelope. NRA flyers almost never look that amateurish.

    If he's going to pillory the NRA for producing and distributing this thing, the mandatory first step is establishing, beyond any doubt, that the NRA actually did produce and distribute it. That hasn't happened yet.

    Have you tried to establish whether or not the NRA actually produced and distributed the flyer?

    For the source: Prove it.

    I’m not a huge fan of the NRA, but that is just too amateurish. Maybe Bonnen our that out.

    Something stinks is right, Ben. I've been a member of the NRA for years and gotten an untold amount of fliers and documents and never seen something so shitty in terms of appearance or quality.

    Sounds like more of a smear of the NRA and a way to get "gun nuts" to abandon them in an effort to bring them down, knowing how unpopular Bonnen is with the membership in TX. Not to mention I doubt the NRA would be so fast to offer support someone who just killed CC in a state as large as Texas.

    "Gun nuts"? It sounds like you are saying that the folks that can see the NRA for what it is is a "gun nut".

    The flyer may not have been sent out by the NRA, but other than that there is nothing in the video that is not true.

    I would be willing to bet that bonehead keeps his NRA and TSRA 'A' rating. Neither organization wants Constitutional carry.

    You misunderstood.....I'm referring to how the liberal masses describe an NRA member. A gun nut.

    The liberals will do anything and everything to destroy the most powerful 2nd Amendment lobbying organization on earth. Sounds like it's working.

    Thanks for clarifying the 'gun nut' statement.

    Too bad the "most powerful 2nd Amendment lobbying organization on earth" compromises away our 2A rights.

    The libs have nothing to do with my opinion of the NRA.

    I'd sure like to try.

    Open call - Do we have anyone on TGT who is a Bonnen constituent who got one of these? If so, could they post pictures of both sides, the envelope, the postmark, etc?

    Not in a micro sense, no. But there's a meta-narrative going on there that "The NRA is bad. Period."

    Reporting true facts out of context in order to cast your enemy in a bad light is just a political dirty trick. If one of the many organizations (several of whom were mentioned in the video) faked this flyer NOT for the purpose of exposing Bonnen BUT RATHER for the purpose of denigrating the NRA, most likely to divert donations from the NRA into their own pockets, than that's despicable.

    I've seen enough political dirty tricks, even by people I agree with, to turn my stomach. If it turns out that this flyer didn't come from the NRA but came from another 2A-supporting group, then that group has proven such a lack of integrity that they should cease to exist. There are plenty of 2A organizations that are worthy of my donations and I won't have problems finding another.
    If fear you're right on all counts and it grieves me to say so.
