More Background On Susan LaPierre

A reader sends us this link, to some sort of celebrity webpages. The link is humdrum, but a comment added to it is noteworthy. I’ll put a screencap below in case it is made to disappear.

No wonder that he spends (as he testified) 40 weeks of the year on travel, mostly to fundraisers. There he can just give a rehearsedContinue reading “Thoughts on NRA’s Personalities”

NRA’s Legal Team Facing Another Loss

We’ve previously blogged about the eyepopping size of NRA’s legal bills, and how all they’ve gotten for it is a string of legal disasters. We can add another to the list. Word now comes that another of Brewer’s cases (over New York’s failing to exempt firearms dealers from its Covid-19 shutdown) is about to showContinue reading “NRA’s Legal Team Facing Another Loss”
