How about we just pretend it never happened.showing the direction the wind is blowing....
The National Rifle Association distanced itself Tuesday from a comment made by a lobbyist for one of its “chartered organizations” in Wisconsin, who said recently that gun rights proponents need only to wait out the “Connecticut Effect” before passing laws loosening restrictions on guns.
Earlier in the day, the line drew the ire of Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), who called on NRA leadership to “repudiate and reject” it. In an email to TPM, the NRA didn’t do that, but it did say its organization had nothing to do with the lobbyist who made the comment.
“Bob Welch is neither a staff lobbyist nor a contract lobbyist for the National Rifle Association,” the NRA said in an email.“He does not speak for the NRA.”
Welch’s comment was first reported by ThinkProgress, which described him as a “lobbyist” who “represents the Wisconsin NRA group.” Blumenthal picked up that description in his comments Tuesday.
While it’s not clear whether Welch, a former Wisconsin state legislator, has ever been paid by the NRA to lobby the state legislature in Wisconsin, it is clear that he and the group he represents has claimed to speak for the NRA in the past.
Welch is a registered lobbyist for Wi-FORCE (Wisconsin Firearm Owners, Ranges, Clubs & Educators, Inc.). The Wi-FORCE website is emblazoned with the words “An NRA Chartered State Association” as well as a newsfeed from the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the group’s lobbying arm.
An idiot knows time dissipates emotions, and all that is necessary is to keep the threat against Obama if he tries to make himself an unconstitutional dictator.
That is the only way you clowns will get your gun control.
So, let's see Obama's balls. How big are they? Does he have what it takes to make himself dictator? Or, is he just another bag of hot air and a fraud?
It's put up or shut up time for Obama. No balls, no blue chips.
