Has anyone noticed the increase in Government conspiracy theories that abound lately? And not from crazy wing nut theorists. Increased warnings from the NRA concerning the government hatching a plan to confiscate your guns? Building distrust In the current administration with the Fast and Furious scandal when the problem actually started way back in 2003 in the Bush administration. Millions had been funneled into Mexico through the Dept. of Defense before Obama was even gleam in the Democratic eye, yet it's big news that money is being given to the corrupt Mexican officials just recently. It wasn't right then and it isn't right now, yet we are expected to act outraged at the Democratic party and the anti-gun shenanigans. When the admittedly NRA friendly Repubs were doing the naughtiness, where were the defenders of liberty and freedom? Oh, that's right. There was no wrongdoing during the Republican administration. I'm a conservative Democrat, by the way. But I've considered No Party Preference. If all of this is true, what then? Will any of you give up your guns when the secret UN treaty is enforced? The government has been keeping pretty good records when it comes to Americans buying firearms. Are you willing to rollover and play the good and loyal American? What's scarier still is that the NRA is using these issues, true or not, to further it's own agenda. Don't get the wrong idea. I'm an NRA member too. But since I have joined I've received several LAST NOTICE flyers to renew my membership. There's been a HUGE push to get me to buy Life insurance, car insurance, even the NRA wine club, if you can believe that! I have a feeling that this is all building up to something. I for one am tired of the manipulation by all sides. I don't need the government deciding for me how I should do this or that. I don't want the NRA telling me who I should vote for through intimidation and fear. And I certainly don't think the NRA Wine club is appropriate. Wine? Come on!
