NRA Leadership Infighting

The present National Rifle Association dust-up between Wayne LaPierre and Oliver North has many supporters of the pro gun organization concerned. For the casual observer, the underlying dispute does not appear on the radar screen. The persona of Wayne LaPierre has been a NRA fixture for decades, while Oliver North bears the baggage of the surreptitious Iran–Contra affair. Just maybe, the NRA is in need of new blood to defend the second amendment and explain that a well armed citizenry is essential to achieve a free society.

Tenth Amendment Center | All Guns Should Be “Undetectable” to the Government

The Second Amendment’s text isn’t hard to read, and it takes all sorts of legal somersaults to get around the “shall not be infringed” part. So, it is confusing and ironic when a national gun rights lobby like the National Rifle Association (NRA) comes out in favor of unconstitutional federal gun control — again.

This time, it concerns plastic guns created using 3D printers. These homemade firearms have the potential to completely undermine the whole concept of “gun control.” Naturally, there have been efforts to suppress access to the blueprints for these guns by making it illegal to upload them onto the internet.

In a carefully-worded statement, NRA Institute for Legislative Action Executive Director Chris W. Cox wrote that “regardless of what a person may be able to publish on the Internet, undetectable plastic guns have been illegal for 30 years. A federal law passed in 1988, crafted with the NRA’s support, makes it unlawful to manufacture, import, sell, ship, deliver, possess, transfer, or receive an undetectable firearm.”
