Our right to bear arms has been inexorably attacked in 2018, as the weaponized emotion of the liberal left ripples throughout the millennial ether.

And, yes, it is understandable.  Some of the horrors of the last year are intrinsically wrapped up in a dialogue that our nation has been having for the last 20-some decades.  What we disagree on is not that it’s unacceptable for our children to be unsafe – we all come together on that point.  The issue is how best to preserve their safety and our national sovereignty.  Without the latter, you cannot have the former.

So the fight has raged in the 21st century, as it did in the 20th, and even the 19th and 18th.  I imagine it will rage well into the 22nd as well, provided that Barack Obama’s anti-Russian “diplomacy” doesn’t get us all nuked first.

Yet, even in the midst of this enormous pushback against the right to bear arms, the National Rifle Association thrives.

The NRA enjoyed a record of 87,541 attendees at its May 4-6 Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas, Texas.

These attendees came after months of student-led gun control marches and walk-outs, celebrity finger pointing–which sought to blame the NRA for the Parkland school shooting–and a focused establishment media template supporting gun control while allowing the NRA to be denigrated.

Breitbart News reported that donations to the NRA’s Political PAC literally tripled, compared with January, after student gun control activists and celebrities began blaming the NRA for the Parkland shooting.

Then came March, and the NRA broke a 15-year record by receiving nearly $2.5 million in donations. The Miami Heraldreported that the nearly $2.5 million was “the most money raised by the NRA’s political arm in one month since June 2003.”

This comes as excellent news for the oft-attacked organization, who have been under democratic duress during the entirety of 2018.

During this round of battle with the liberal left, the NRA has taken a particularly unfortunate toll as young activists attempt to use the power of public shame to influence high level marketing partnerships.  By specifically targeting organizations that give discounts to NRA members, the left has made the fight awfully personal.
