Oliver North Wants to Make the NRA Great Again

The liberal media was aghast this week when former Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North was announced as the new president of the National Rifle Association. Though they would have probably been equally horrified if Hillary Clinton, David Hogg, and Pope Francis had been named co-presidents of the organization, since they will find any excuse to demonize the NRA, we should probably take their united opposition to North as a positive development. A good rule of thumb is that the more the leftwing media hates something, the more likely it is that said “something” is actually worth celebrating. Since the attacks on North have been deafening, we say, hey, break out the champagne!

In an interview with the Washington Times, North said that his job was to grow the NRA’s membership base well beyond its current status. It’s clear from the interview that North is not being brought in to simply oversee what is, by all metrics, already a very successful organization. Rather, he has a vision for the NRA that includes vastly expanding the reach of its efforts.

He is also very much aware of the opposition the NRA is facing in leftwing activism and has a strategy for making sure those forces can never encroach on our constitutional liberties.

“They can do all the cyberwar against us — they’re doing it. They can use the media against us — they are. They’ve gone after our bank accounts, our finances, our donors, and obviously individual members,” North said. “It’s got to stop. And that’s why the leadership invited me to become the next president of the NRA.”

North said the media’s treatment of gun control advocates was an ongoing joke.

“They call them activists,” he told the Washington Times. “That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists – this is civil terrorism. This is the kind of thing that’s never been seen against a civil rights organization in America.”

At the same time, North isn’t putting his head in the sand. He acknowledged that the teens of Parkland had been highly successful in turning Americans and corporations against guns in recent months and he knows it will take a smart counter-offensive by the NRA to keep the propaganda at bay.

“What they did very successfully with a frontal assault, and now intimidation and harassment and lawbreaking, is they confused the American people,” he said. “Our job is to get the straight story out about what happened there, and to make sure that kind of thing doesn’t happen again because the proper things are being done with the advocacy of the NRA.”

It seemed almost impossible to believe that the anti-gun movement could get worse after the days of Obama, but it’s clear that these leftists are not going to stop in their efforts to destroy the Second Amendment. The NRA is one of our most important bulwarks against the left’s encroaching army, and North sounds like just the man we need at the helm.

  1. Oliver North shall make NRA greater than ever.A miracle would be the 718 Gun Owners Association.Cuomo would go out of his way to target 718 GOA members for bankruptcy and total destruction.

  2. It’s good to hear Lt Col North call the NRA a Civil Rights organization – which it is. After all the NRA was formed in 1871 in response to the Democrats passing gun control bills specifically targeting the newly freed slaves in the South. I think emphasizing the NRA as a Civil Rights Activist organization is long overdue. Every other civil right the left can think of, they support, they even made up a few “civil rights” not defined by the US Constitution!

  3. A strong , proven leader. A man who took an oath to defend the UNITED STATES and the CONSTITUTION against all enemies both FOREIGN and DOMESTIC. Which means freedom for the people.

  4. Socialism cannot succeed against an armed citizenship and the left knows this. They want to be able to do anything they want to you or your life without you being able to fight back. The democratic party has been hi-jacked by ultra left wing socialists started back in the 50’s and indoctrination of the youth in our schools and universities. The worst part is they also made you pay for it! To brainwash your children in their doctrine. The NRA has some teeth because of the strong membership over 5 million now and growing, they see what the left is trying to do to this country that is why Trump was elected not crooked Hillery. This is how they treat you when you’re armed to the teeth wonder what they will treat you like when you cant fight back, let that sink in!

  5. Since he’s military man this does not surprise me one bit. Military fairly defines guns. It would be a most agreeable world in which we didn’t have to settle disputes at the point of a gun. It seems very counter-productive.

  6. Col. North:

    I wish you success in the post you have assumed. That said, and I have been a Life Member since 1975, the NRA has a somewhat checkered past regarding it’s actions or antics concerning gun control, having pursued a most questionable path, one that has been costly to gun owners. In short sir, there is absolutely no margin for giving the anti gunnets anything but, as some Irish acquaintances were won’t to say, “the back o’me hand to you”. Keep that admonition in mind sir.

  7. Guns have no way of killing people unless there is a person behind the trigger. It’s the people that we have to control. Take guns away from crazy or mentally ill. That is where the problem is, not the inanimate guns.

  8. American’s that Love Our Great Country,listen up if you support Our 2nd Amendment and believe in Our Lawabiding Citizens in every state should be allowed to carry a concealed or non concealed weapon for a safer America ! We should all join The NRA TODAY and FIGHT BACK AGAINST THE LIBERAL DEMOCRAT GUN GRABBERS THAT ARE TRYING THERE BEST TO TAKE AWAY OUR LIBERTIES,SO WE HAVE TO STOP THEM NOW ! ! !

  9. The armed citizen prevents more crime from taking place. Year after year Law Enforcement statistics bear this out. It isn’t just murder that is reduced, but also theft, rapes, assaults, car jacking, etc., etc. So if Boyle wants to live in a less threatened society, he’d embrace private gun ownership and the private gun owner’s association—the NRA. If however his goal is to “control” the citizenry and limit their freedoms, he’ll be looking down the wrong end of a barrel someday.

  10. I see what you’re saying but the truth is the 2nd Amendment is what upholds all the rest of the Constitution! Freedom isn’t free and the only thing evil understands is brute force and superior fire power! These anti gun idiots are in no way going to back down and want to disarm American citizens so they can force their perverted ideology upon everyone without resistance! Molon Labe! Come and take them!
