On April 9, Breitbart News spoke to National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) Executive Vice President Dudley Brown about the tact his group takes toward preserving the 2nd Amendment and opposing the incremental expansion of government into the private gun purchases of law-abiding citizens.
Brown quickly made it clear that NAGR isn’t like other gun rights groups, inasmuch as NAGR is not looking for compromise but for victory. And they don’t accomplish this by kissing up to moderates.
Brown explained this by using hockey verbiage to say he, “is willing to drop the gloves with any politician who would take away our 2nd Amendment rights.”
NAGR has over 1.1 million likes on Facebook, over three million recipients on its email list, and had a $7 million budget last year.
Brown says all these contacts and funds are being utilized every day, in every way, to take the pro-gun fight to DC instead of waiting for the fight to come to them.
NAGR does a conference call with staffers and personnel in DC and around the country every day. These calls include Congressional and Senate contacts as well, and they are aimed at putting pressure on legislators to kill the gun control package Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is cramming down America’s throat.
In fact, when Breitbart News asked Brown what he believed was the biggest threat gun owners in America face, his answer contained two words: “Harry Reid.”
He said other prominent gun rights groups take a milder approach to Reid, and described him as a pro-gun Senator who won’t do anything too extreme. But Brown said, “Reid’s agenda is no different than that of Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY).”
