A few days ago I read an article pertaining to a gun club in Colorado. I was on the Durango Herald news site. Ah yes, the Herald. It’s where I go to get all my news. Oh, and the story was also reported on by Becket Adams of The Blaze.
Okay, I’ll give you the Herald, but this Blaze- what’s that?
Anyway, the article was about the nonprofit Durango Gun Club and the trouble it’s having with the city of Durango Colorado. Durango – just saying it makes me think of the Duke, John Wayne.
As an aside, any liberals who may be reading this – I know what you’re thinking. How could the righteousness of the word “Nonprofit” be tainted by that incendiary word “Gun”? If it’s too painful, you may stop reading.
Okay, now that that’s out of the way – down the business.
It seems the proprietors of the Durango Gun Club, this past December, decided to require all 700 of its members to join the NRA, if they hadn’t already.
Well, that didn’t sit well with the city. The Herald reported that the city manager Ron LeBlanc said, “We told them either to stop or get evicted – I think that’s pretty clear”.
You see, apparently requiring the members to join a “political” organization like the NRA is advancing an “extremist” political viewpoint.
I wonder if they would have the same complaint if the members were required to join the Center for American Progress or the SEIU? Just asking?
