It’s no secret that I’ve been an NRA member for many years, even though I’m not exactly your typical gun enthusiast. I simply appreciate the idea of being able to defend both myself and my family.
Joining the NRA seemed like the natural thing to do, and I’ve always been happy with my decision.
But their ad campaign which floods my mailbox all year has always had room for improvement. It’s fine and all, but never exactly got me any more excited or motivated than I already was about the 2nd Amendment. And while Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre seems to be a nice man and a decent speaker, he also occasionally goes over the line rhetorically and ends up shooting himself in the foot (sorry, I couldn’t help myself…).
Put it this way: in the charisma department, LaPierre ain’t no Charlton Heston.
Always hoped they would get someone a bit, well, …hipper (or is that “more hip”? Whatever…). They needed a better communicator, who could really speak out against the emotional stupidity of the newly energized Gun Control movement, without turning off the very people they’re trying to reach.
Wow, did they find him. The dude’s name is Colion Noir, and I’d heard he was their new spokesman around the time I first saw him in a video on YouTube a while back. That particular clip was good, but this one is better.
Well done, NRA.
The next order of business should be to introduce Colin to Senator Diane Feinstein. Heck, we could sell tickets…!
