Reading over on the old HuffPo, I see that Adolphus Busch IV has resigned from the NRA. I'm sure I don't agree with him on much, but he had the decency to tell them exactly why he was done with them. It was the Senate Vote in particular, and

"It disturbs me greatly to see this rigid new direction of the NRA."
"I am simply unable to comprehend how assault weapons and large capacity magazines have a role in your vision,"
See the HuffPo piece HERE

Sure, you can chide him for staying with the NRA so long, but this is clearly an indication that the Ratship NRA is going to sink. The tide is turning against the kind of political blackmail the NRA lives on. It may take some time to sink in the shallow waters of American Political thought, but I will buy a case of Anheuser Busch beer this weekend to send old Adolphus a reward. You have to reward good behavior, and he certainly made no bones about why--the NRA can't keep blowing this kind of rational thought off.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
