Fuck The NRA

“Fuck The NRA” – J.Adam Snyder

Anyone who is choosing to remain a member of the NRA after recent events is guilty of indirectly supporting domestic terrorism.

They fought against a bill that would have outlawed individuals who are on the No Fly list from being able to purchase high-capacity weaponry.

That is the equivalent of NAMBLA fighting against a bill that would outlaw sexual predators from being on school campuses.

Only in this case, the NRA won.

I am publicly revoking my honorary membership to the NRA at this moment and will not be renewing my membership upon its expiration. I am not against the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, I am against organizations that continue to abuse tragedies and violence for the sake of profit.

I want a solution, not more excuses. I want the hate to end, not to keep it alive for use against your political enemies. I want the violence to stop, not to blame others and decide to do nothing but “pray” about it.

I want to live in the America where I can walk the streets in safety.

I want to live in the America where I can attend the cinema without the fear of being crucified by a machine gun.

I want to live in the America where the children of my community can go to school without the dreadful possibility of having their innocent lives cut short by a lunatic with an assault weapon.

I want to live in the America where my homosexual neighbors can enjoy a night out with their friends and lovers without suffering the anxiety of having that night be their last.

I want to live in the America where people of all faiths can gather and worship in peace without being subjugated to the evil actions of a racist with an AR-15.

I want to live in the America where women can safely make their own healthcare decisions without the daunting threat of being violently punished and murdered by a religious fundamentalist.

I will not accept living in the America that chooses to accept such hate and violence as normal, and neither should anyone else.
