The National Rifle Association (NRA) did not pull any punches in their letter to members:
The National Rifle Association has opened a new membership drive to build its ranks for a “winner-take-all” shootout with liberals like President Obama and Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton over the future of gun ownership and the Second Amendment.
“Unless you and I stand shoulder-to-shoulder in this winner-take-all fight, it’s only a matter of time before we lose our guns, our heritage, and our freedom,” wrote Wayne LaPierre, the NRA executive vice president in a new membership letter.
By joining, he urged potential members, “you’re drawing a line in the sand, making it clear to politicians across America that you’re not going to stand by while extremists trample our individual liberties.”
