DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER: Sarkes does not Pack Heat. In fact, Sarkes only remembers firing a weapon once, and that was at Boy Scout Camp with Son David over 30 years back (a 22 Single Shot Rifle). But Sarkes, a Truth Machine, does not let this interfere with his Fair and Balanced Reporting. DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER
Our Founding Fathers, in their wisdom, crafted the 2nd Amendment, although “Many People Say” it should have been the 1st amendment: “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”
You see, our Founding Fathers fought for our Freedom in the War for Independence against England using single shot rifles and pistols, BUT, our Founding Fathers had the vision that Weapon technology would evolve to today’s Large Magazine, Semi Automatic Assault Weapons. The 2nd Amendment is no mistake, Noooo.
Founded in 1871, the NRA has built a reputation as one of the nation’s fiercest protectors of gun rights, becoming a major force in national politics and government.
Today, the NRA has more than 5 million members, but still has faced financial turmoil in recent years. The NRA has also experienced a public power struggle between Wayne LaPierre and Oliver North that ended with North getting the Old Heave Ho in 2019.
The NRA filed for Bankruptcy in Texas. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is designed to allow companies or organizations to restructure their operations, shed debt, delay lawsuits and emerge as a sustainable enterprise. But it can lead to dissolution or liquidation.
The NRA’s Bankruptcy is blamed on NRA Leaders wasteful, unchecked spending that led the organization to go from a $27.8 million surplus in 2016 to a $36.3 million net deficit in 2018. Hmmmmm, the Financial disaster of the NRA just happens to coincide with the Trump Administration’s Tax Cut and Spend Economic policies. Coincidence? ………………. Sarkes Thinks Not.
Thru their Bankruptcy filing, the NRA has committed to changing the errors of their past, and are committed to prudent, financial policies and austere spending practices. The NRA’s Word is as solid as the Lone Ranger’s Silver Bullet.
The disillusion of the NRA, if the Bankruptcy fails, would be a true American tragedy. Who can forget these Literary Pearls of Wisdom generated by the NRA Leaders, NRA Members and NRA Lackeys:
“Guns don’t kill People, People kill People.”
“If there was an Armed Guards patrolling the halls at our Schools the results would have been far better.”
“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
“Mass Murders with semi automatic weapons are just the price of our Freedom”
“Our Thoughts and Prayers are with the victims of this mass shooting and their families, Thoughts and Prayers.”
“Mass Shooters go to Gun Free Zones, like California, what do you expect”.
Sarkes appeals to all Americans, Heat Packers or Not. We cannot let the NRA go 4 Paws Up. This Great American institution and defender of our God Given and Constitutional Rights, must be spared to continue their Nobel calling to make sure that every American can Pack Heat.
Sarkes asks all Americans to make generous donations to the NRA. Unlike may calls for donations that you see on TV that ask for your donations in any amount, no matter how small, this is not one of those calls. Sarkes is asking you to make Uuuuuuuge donations to the NRA.
To that end, Sarkes is asking for you to send donations, $100.00 minimum / no maximum, to Sarkes who will make sure that your donation (minus a reasonable management fee) is sent to the NRA to keep them solvent.
