NRATV is No More: NRA Leadership Decides to Pull the Plug on Live Programming

Published

on

The New York Times reports that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has discontinued NRATV.

The nationally-recognized gun rights organization also broke ties with Ackerman McQueen, its disgruntled PR firm, which has brought the organization considerable scrutiny in the last two years.

BLP reported on the intense pressure the NRA has faced in recent months from both state governments, like the state of New York, and journalistic inquiry into its questionable spending practices.

NRATV is likely to continue past broadcasts, but it is pulling the plug on its live programming. In the same token, its on-air-personalities will no longer be the NRA’s public faces.

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre issued a message to NRA members on Wednesday, “Many members expressed concern about the messaging on NRATV becoming too far removed from our core mission: defending the Second Amendment.”

The NRA leader detailed the organization’s new path going forward:

So, after careful consideration, I am announcing that starting today, we are undergoing a significant change in our communications strategy. We are no longer airing ‘live TV’ programming.

Things look quite tense in NRA HQ as gun activists from all over want the organization to drastically reform its practices and stick to its original mission—protecting the Second Amendment.

Many in the “no compromise” gun community have been disappointed with the NRA’s milquetoast track record in defending gun rights.

Some activists have argued that NRA has conceded too much ground to the Left on the gun issue.

With how emboldened the Left has become, the NRA falling apart will be a major feather in their cap.

Hopefully, the NRA can put the pieces back together and take a more hardline approach to gun lobbying in the case that it gets new leadership.

In the meantime, strict pro-gun groups will have to step up their operations and position themselves as viable alternatives to the NRA.

NYC Mayor is Pushing Synagogues to Shut Down

Published

on

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Jewish community that synagogues that continue to not comply with Wuhan virus regulations by holding services will be permanently closed.

According to The Jerusalem Post, the majority of synagogues have closed in compliance with city orders aimed stopping the spread of Wuhan Virus by limiting social gatherings.

“We’ve had extraordinary, across the board rabbinical support from all the different elements of the Jewish community and the same is true of other faiths as well,” de Blasio said during his March 27, 2020 news briefing, according to The Jewish Press.

There are still some synagogues holding minyanim, social gatherings of 10 worshipers or more, to carry out prayer services.

“A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues, are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” de Blasio stated.

“I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church, and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he admonished. However, he admitted that he does not “say this with joy.”

“I understand how important people’s faiths are to them, and we need our faith in this time of crisis. But we do not need gatherings that will endanger people.”

The mayor asked religious citizens who witnesses services taking place to talk with the congregation’s officials and demand they cease services. If that is not enough, the authorities may “need to take additional action up to the point of fines and potentially closing the building permanently.”
