Is The NRA Forcing Trump to Support Gun Control?

Published

on

Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump announced he has directed Attorney General Jeff Sessions to ban “bump stocks.” A “bump stock” is a firearm accessory which uses the recoil of the firearm to allow it to be fired more rapidly than usually achievable on its own.

This move was surprising to most Second Amendment-supporting Trump supporters. But in reality, it shouldn’t have been. The National Rifle Association (NRA), who spent over $30 million supporting Trump’s run for President, has a long record of supporting gun control, especially in the past year.

Immediately following last years Las Vegas shooting that left 58 people dead, the NRA called for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) to look into bump stocks, and review whether they comply with Federal law. In the statement, the NRA also expressed their support for additional regulations on bump stocks, falling short of declaring their support for a full ban.

That statement led towards a massive gun control showdown over bump stocks, and if it weren’t for more hard-line organizations like the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) standing up against banning firearm accessories like bump stocks, those efforts very likely would have succeeded.

Regardless of what is thought of bump stocks (I personally think they’re gimmicky), the Second Amendment is clear, and banning a gun accessory is definitely an infringement.

The NRA, who purports to support the Second Amendment, has been mostly silent on this issue. The only times they’ve chimed in on the debate over bump stocks was to make anti-gun arguments on why they should be banned. Could those statements from the NRA have encouraged President Trump to follow through on his directive to ban bump stocks?

National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense

They’re stepping up to the plate.

The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

 

 “I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.

 

Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”

NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.

 “We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”

 

According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”

 

 “The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”  

 

The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.

 

NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.

 

Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
