NRA To Shut Its Doors After Realizing 2nd Amendment Overrated
In an epic move, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has refunded all of its members the current year's membership fees and is dissolving the organization. With around 5 million members, the NRA is one of the most storied associations in American history, known primarily for working on policies and programs that protect and promote the Second Amendment of the United States, which guarantees the right for citizens to bear arms.
According to current NRA president Oliver North, "After much discussion, we have come to the understanding that the right to keep and bear arms does not actually keep tyranny at bay. The American people have had this constitutional guarantee for hundreds of years, and yet... here we are. We were spending hundreds of millions of dollars each year to protect something that no one truly cares about."
Most NRA members feel betrayed and don't understand the move, with some even claiming that the organization has been hijacked by Liberals. But several long-term member agree with lifelong NRA enthusiast, Jimbo Hunter who says, "Look at us. Our citizens have more guns than any nation in history, and we have founding documents that tell us we have those firearms to protect our liberties from all enemies, foreign and domestic... but nobody is holding our leaders accountable. Nobody is going to start a revolution to get our country back. Everybody is too busy killing squirrels."
The writing was on the wall at a recent NRA convention where members were not allowed to carry their own firearms into the event.
Oliver North sums it up, "The citizens of this once great country have proven that they do not want the rights enumerated in the second amendment... so why should we go through the motions of protecting something no one will ever use? Hey... I'm a retired Lt. Col. in the United States Marine Corp, and even I'm not going to lead a revolution."
This move will obviously have a huge impact on the Democratic party, which spends much money and manpower to combat the efforts of the NRA. Upon hearing the news, Hillary Clinton tweeted, "I suppose now we can turn our efforts to eroding the first amendment."
