Dear Kenneth,

Last week the National Rifle Association officially announced they were not endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D - NV).

They also went out of their way to make it clear they were not endorsing Reid's opponent, Republican Sharon Angle -- who filled out the National Association for Gun Rights Federal Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun.  A typical Washington non-statement, statement.

The NRA's "non-endorsement" statement brings up a number of important questions.

Does giving a candidate money not constitute a more-than-tacit endorsement? The NRA's Federal PAC gave Harry Reid $4,950 this year, for his 2010 reelection campagin.

Does speaking glowingly of a candidate or politician during an election year not constitute an endorsement?  In the June 2010 edition (page 16-18) of the NRA's magazine, the American Rifleman, they featured an article highlighting the work Harry Reid has done with the NRA.

I firmly believe that actions speak louder than press releases.

In that spirit, our cartoonist outlined just what that the NRA's "non-endorsement" really means.

Please feel to forward this cartoon to all of your gun owning friends and relatives.

For liberty,

Dudley Brown
Executive Director

The headline says (R-NV).  Harry Reid is a Democrat.

 I canceled my membership in the NRA four years ago when I figured out that they were just another front group for the New World Order. When they refused to even mention Ron Paul's name in the presidential election I knew my suspicions were correct. You know the story about the frog in the pan? Their job is to act like they support the 2nd Amendment while very gradually surrendering our rights little by little so we don't really notice (until we're cooked). Spend your dollars with Gun Owners of America or any other gun rights group other than the NRA. The NRA sucks!
