One thought on “Quid Pro Quo

  1. Cui bono? says:

    National Rifle Association President Carolyn D. Meadows said at a brunch hosted by the Cobb County Republican Women’s Club on Saturday that the country is at a “crossroads,” arguing that it will “prevail with Donald Trump,” or else, “if the Democrats triumph, America as we’ve known it will vanish.” https://www.newsweek.com/carolyn-meadows-national-rifle-association-1469094
    The comments, reported by the Marietta Daily Journal, came as part of a speech Meadows delivered at the event, which was convened to pay tribute to emergency workers. https://www.mdjonline.com/news/nra-president-goes-on-offense-at-first-responders-brunch/article_cd5501b8-f81c-11e9-9f52-af345c3179cb.html
    “The NRA stands ready to ensure that our politicians remain in office, those who are the ones who defend our right to defend ourselves and our loved ones, people like you, Neil,” she said, addressing Cobb Sheriff Neil Warren. “We will work to defeat those who want to disarm us and look down on us. They look down on us because we cling to our Bibles and our guns. We’re not going to have it. The far left is doing everything they can, including using the awesome powers of government to tear down the NRA. And why are they doing this? Because we stand in the way of their end goal to repeal the Second Amendment.”
    But Meadows said the gun crowd remains powerful and have won many victories in recent years, not the least of which being the appointment of 152 federal judges.
    “That number includes two Supreme Court Justices, dozens of Court of Appeals judges, and around a hundred District Court judges,” she said. “These pro-Second Amendment judges will protect our rights for decades to come. There may be no greater legacy for all of us who support the Second Amendment. So it’s so easy to read our list of successes. But let me remind you all, each gain we made was hard fought, and sometimes it’s been a knock-down, drag-out fight, but that’s who we are, and that’s who we are as Georgians, and one of the reasons we all fight to preserve our way of life is to preserve the dignity and authority of the thin blue line, sheriffs, policemen at the local county and state level. You know those people, the left loves to call them pigs or racists or other bad words.”
