Before launching a rant against the NRA because they endorsed a Democratic candidate, you may want to research said candidate's actual voting record.
Below, is the voting record, in support of gun owners and 2A rights, that this candidate exercised...thus why the NRA endorsed him :
Earl Pomeroy (D)
Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act
-- Cosponsored and voted for the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act that prevents attempts to bankrupt the American gun industry through bogus lawsuits
District of Columbia Personal Protection Act
-- Cosponsored and voted for the Second Amendment Enforcement Act and District of Columbia Personal Protection Act that would repeal the D.C. gun ban/registration statute and restore the right of self-defense to law-abiding residents of our nation's capital
-- Signed the pro-gun congressional "friend of the court" brief in the 2008 Heller case supporting the Second Amendment as an individual right and striking down the gun ban in our nation's capital
-- Signed the pro-gun congressional "friend of the court" brief in the McDonald case supporting the position that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans
-- Signed the letter to Attorney General Eric Holder with 64 other House Democrats expressing opposition to the reenactment of the failed 1994 Clinton ban on semi-automatic firearms and ammunition magazines
-- Cosponsored and voted for legislation to force much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)
Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act
-- Voted for the Disaster Recovery Personal Protection Act that prohibits gun confiscation during states of emergency as happened after Hurricane Katrina
Protecting Gun Owners in Bankruptcy Act
-- Voted for the Protecting Gun Owners in Bankruptcy Act, which would ensure that a person who filed for bankruptcy would not lose their firearms, thereby maintaining the fundamental right to self-defense
Right-to-Carry in Parks
-- Voted last year for allowing carry license or permit holders to carry and transport firearms for self-defense in national parks and wildlife refuges
-- Voted to protect hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting on public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management

From examining this political figure's actual voting record, it does not seem he "stabbed the NRA in the back" at every opportunity to vote anti-2A.
Does the Republican candidate have an actual 2A voting record that trumps Earl? In comparing two condidates, one with an actual voting record and the other without one, or only questionaire answers (even if favorable answers), the NRA has said it leans to the candidate with an actual voting record of 2A support
If you are angered at the Democrat because he voted for ObamaCare, or some other Liberal causes...I could understand that. But you will have to look to other organizations to champion those issues.
