I DIDN’T SEE THE PRESS CONFERENCE, but reader Theo X. Rojo writes: “I’m very proud of my membership in the NRA as a ‘Life Member.’ I thought Mr. LaPierre hit it out of the park today.”
Well, he had journalists seething, which is probably a good sign. I mean, the reporters are an audience he’ll never win over, but if the members are onboard and motivated, NRA can block most anything it needs to.
UPDATE: Jeffrey Goldberg: “Reporters on my Twitter feed seem to hate the NRA more than anything else, ever.” I think there’s a race/class angle to that.
