Bklyner offers up this “Exclusive”:
“It’s fundraising time for the NRA, and they’re making their usual rounds—among them, Southern Brooklyn. Signs posted outside of a Brooklyn eatery show the fundraising arm of the NRA (National Rifle Associaton) Foundation is having an event at the Rex Manor Catering Hall which sits at the border of Borough Park and Bensonhurst … This marks the third annual Brooklyn event of the NRA affiliate …”
There are several things NRA HQ ought to learn from this.
First, they have members in Brooklyn.
Second, since they have members in Brooklyn, NRA can be involved in local politics. The PVF is fully capable of doing this and it does not require spending a ton of money. Nothing good will come to the NRA in New York until they become involved with Democrat politics in places like Brooklyn.
“… Undeterred by protesters, gun-supporters argued their First Amendment guarantees them a right to assemble. The signage promoting this event touts another Constitutional Amendment. “Gather second Amendment supporters in your community and attend your local Friends of NRA event,” reads the poster …”
Third, when confronted by antigun assholes, don’t back down. Be open about supporting gun rights in a county where Democrats outnumber Republicans more than 8 to 1.
As for the rest of the article:
“… The announcement comes days after a suspected white supremacist shot and killed 49 Muslims at two New Zealand mosques …”
The author confuses the NRA, which helped blacks obtain firearms for self-defense, with the Democrat Party, which was founded by the KKK.
“… Councilman Kalman Yeger, whose district includes Rex Manor, did not respond to requests before post time.”
Yegar has supported antigun positions in the past, but I don’t see anything about this.
