NRA Letter

The NRA misfires with their unrelenting Trump Love, as they turn a blind eye to his past, and current, positions on the right to bear arms and the rights of individuals and organizations to speak out against their government..

Bad timing, National Rifle Association. I received this urgent fundraising appeal just days after you gave Donald Trump a tongue bath at the national convention in Louisville.

I understand that the NRA, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, views Hillary Clinton as an existential threat to American’s 2nd Amendment rights. I’m not shocked that they would endorse her opponent, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

For the sake of their own reputation, I would rather have held them hold his hand instead of engaging in a public display of affection that would make the most hormonal teenager go, ‘Ewww.’

A great jurist and a pillar of American Conservatism has passed.

Justice Antonin Scalia, whose transformative legal theories, vivid writing and outsize personality made him a leader of a conservative intellectual renaissance in his three decades on the Supreme Court, was found dead on Saturday at a resort in West Texas, according to a statement from Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. He was 79.

“He was an extraordinary individual and jurist, admired and treasured by his colleagues,” Chief Justice Roberts said. “His passing is a great loss to the Court and the country he so loyally served.”

The cause of death was not immediately released.
