Competitors Not Admitted: NRA Bans USCCA from Next Week’s An

Post by WVRiflemannOH » Sat Apr 22, 2017 10:52 am

"Competitors"? The NRA is about themselves and not protecting the 2nd Amendment anymore. We are not competing, we need to be working together.

Not familiar enough with USCCA to comment.
But ya.. not totally surprising either way.. NRA is the 800LB gorilla and at times act's like it.

We are our own worst enemy too often. How did anyone in NRA PR group think this was a smart move? They have to have know that uscca has enough money and reach to get this spun into an anti nra story. SMH... Again!

The Second Amendment Foundation and several other non-NRA gun rights groups will be there. I think the problem is that USCCA is mostly a self-defense insurance company, and now that the NRA has introduced their own "Carry Guard" https://www.nracarryguard.com/ (i.e. no longer sponsoring an "affiliated" insurance but now selling their own product) that USCCA is a direct competitor.

I don't like it, but it is the NRA's show. If they don't want to allow a competitor to use their own show as a venue to advertise competing products, that's not surprising.

Again, the NRA is a business first, 2nd Amendment 2nd. I don't see that helping gun owners 100% with these type of brush offs of other 2nd Amendment right protectors. I will never send them a dime again because of their action that hurt fellow gun owners and the 2nd Amendment overall.

GOA, NAGR, Ohio Gun Owners I support, NO COMPROMISE.

Even the BFA is losing it's way. Why haven't they brought up Constitutional Carry for Ohio instead of attacking others who have and are, and start fighting to get our rights back without a paid permission slip?

When two brothers are busy fighting, an evil man can easily attack and rob their poor mother. Mankind should always stay united, standing shoulder to shoulder so evil can never cheat and divide them.
