The NRA represents everything law abiding citizens would seem to object.


Today, the 68-year-old Bpb Dowlut is the general counsel of the National Rifle Association. As the NRA's top lawyer, he has been a key architect of the gun lobby's campaign to define the legal interpretation of the Second Amendment. He helped oversee the NRA's effort to strike down Chicago's handgun ban in the 2010 Supreme Court case McDonald v. Chicago, and he is the longtime secretary of the organization's Civil Rights Defense Fund, which has spent millions assisting gun owners in court and sponsoring gun rights researchers. Dowlut's journal articles have been cited by federal judges and are quoted by pro-gun activists.

Shortly before dark on the evening of April 17, 1963, Robert J. Dowlut went looking for a gun inside the city cemetery in South Bend, Indiana. Making his way through the headstones, he stopped in front of the abandoned Studebaker family mausoleum. He knelt by the front right corner of the blocky gray monument and lifted a stone from the damp ground. Then, as one of the two police detectives accompanying him later testified, the 17-year-old "used his hands and did some digging." He unearthed a revolver and ammunition. As Dowlut would later tell a judge, the detectives then took the gun, "jammed it in my hand," and photographed him. "They were real happy."


Two days earlier, a woman named Anna Marie Yocum had been murdered in her South Bend home. An autopsy determined she had been shot three times, once through the chest and twice in the back, likely at close range as she'd either fled or fallen down the stairs from her apartment. Two .45-caliber bullets had pierced her heart.


But after serving half a decade in prison, and despite solid forensic evidence matching Dowlut's dug-up pistol to the murder, the Indiana Supreme Court found that police had overzealously violated his constitutional rights in obtaining that confession—they reportedly denied him a lawyer despite multiple requests—and his conviction was overturned. Prosecutors gave up on trying the case again when much of their evidence was tossed out with the confession.

If only Yocum and her child were armed....

They could have defended themselves.

You don't have a clue about the NRA. They are the oldest civil rights orginazation in the country. They were established in 1871 when it was obvious that recently freed Blacks needed guns, which they weren't allowed, for hunting and selfdefense. Yes, that's right! The NRA was formed to serve Black people. Nowadays, the NRA stands for all good lawabiding citizens in the U.S. Coloin Noir is a Black man who represents the NRA. Do you understand? Noir knows. Gun safety, hunting, selfdefense, protecting the constitution. The NRA is about only positive things. How many other organizations can claim that? People who talk bad about the NRA don't know very much or they are just dirtbag lowly people attacking something good; just like so many politicians who are on the wrong side. Join the NRA and be proud of it.
