Hardline U.S. 'gundamentalists' pressure NRA from within

(Reuters) - About 100 protesters, many wearing T-shirts emblazoned with “NRA = Not Real Activists,” marched through the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting in Dallas in May to slam the powerful gun lobby as too conciliatory on gun rights and rally for their candidate for the board.

Adam Kraut, a gun rights lawyer, fell about 4,000 votes short of the 71,000 needed for election, but earned 5,000 more than the previous year, a sign of the growth of the Second Amendment purists within the NRA known to many as “gundamentalists.”


And there's this gem:  Marion Hammer, a past president of the NRA and one of the group’s most successful lobbyists, denounced unsanctioned candidates in a column on the website Ammoland just as Kraut appeared on the 2018 ballot. Though Hammer did not name Kraut, he was one of only two non-approved candidates to run.  “Once again the NRA is being threatened by the enemy within,” Hammer wrote. “It is time to wake up and stop it before it begins.”

DRAIN THE (NRA) SWAMP!  Marion Hammer is bad mounting board candidates for not wanting to compromise on the second amendment?!  This is EXACTLY why we need to vote new leadership into the NRA!

How dare someone who wants to protect the 2nd Amendment be on the NRA board. Adam is awesome, I hope he tries again and gets on. There's close to 100 directors though I think so we'll need more than one hardliner to right this ship.
