    this is going to hurt them. I expect that they'll lose some members, just as they did with the uproar in the 80's over Wayne's pronouncements about "jackbooted thugs" and insinuations that federal agents should be shot in the head (yes, he really said it).

    Beyond that, we have politicians actually distancing themselves from the NRA, which is unheard of. Right here in MI, our normally nutbar governor vetoed NRA/ALEC inspired legislation (which he backed right up until he didn't) that would have gotten rid of our state pistol registry and allowed concealed carry everywhere. And since influencing politicians is the name of the game for a lobbying organization... no, I think long term this does not bode well for them, and they know it--that's why they're doubling down on the a-gun-in-every-pocket message. It's all they can think of to do.
