The NRA As Tribe, Part 2.

So a few of my friends are asking why the NRA created this video and is weighing in on the issue of standing for national anthem. What does THAT have to do with gun safety and firearms training?

Well, not a lot, to be honest. But it does have a lot to do with what the NRA sees as it’s future in a world where fear is not a primary driver of gun ownership, setting yourself up as a phyle is actually a pretty darn good idea and as the name of the game from here on out seems to be identity politics, and creating a rally point for traditional American values makes a lot of sense.
