Civil Rights Group Winning Influence

Everyone should be happy when a civil rights organization is ascendant and winning over those who want to suppress individual rights, right?

The NRA is winning.

It’s a Marathon, not a sprint. It seems the NRA has the stamina to out-run the pro-gun control movement. They are persistent, un-yielding and gaining influence. It will be interesting to see how the pro-gun control voice responds and how the influence between the two groups changes as the debate persists.

The pro-gun rights voice is rapidly gaining influence while the pro-gun control voice has tapered in recent weeks. Momentum is shifting and the gun control debate is becoming a platform benefiting gun rights advocates.

The pro–gun control group is fragmented whereas the pro-gun rights voice is united and strong. Of the top influencers on the pro-gun rights side, the majority of the most prominent voices are from the NRA. The pro-gun control voice is split between Obama and several gun control advocacy groups which dilutes the message.

Read it all. It is a fresh box of ammo for the soul.

    In this article in Forbes the most chilling paragraph is this one:

    “Republican politicians are missing from the debate. The debate is an influence battle between President Barack Obama’s Democrats and Wayne LaPierre’s NRA. Of the top 25 stakeholders in the debate, there is only 1 prominent Republican politician (Chris Christie – who is pro-gun control). Barack Obama leads the pro-gun control voice with a net influence score of 268. LaPierre leads the anti-gun control side with a net influence score of 240.”

    I am disgusted with the GOP at the national level. Under the leadership of John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, Prince Reebus, et al, the Republican party has shown no spine. My Congresswoman is part of the problem. I am determined that she know it and know where I stand.
