In US news and current events today, The NRA has remained silent amid Trump’s call for a military response to peaceful Black Lives Matter protests, despite years of mongering fear of the ‘tyrannical’ U.S. government.
In response to the police killing of George Floyd, the subsequent George Floyd protests, and the desire of President Donald Trump to send in active duty military troops to squash the largely peaceful protests, the silence of the National Rifle Association is deafening. After decades of fearmongering about government tyranny and the 2nd Amendment right to defend oneself from a fascistic regime, the NRA has been curiously quiet in response to President Trump and his desire to do exactly that. The Second Amendment declares that, for the purposes of a well-maintained militia, the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. However, it's clear that in the eyes of the NRA hypocrisy, that really only applies to what you are bearing arms for, and what color your skin is. In their battle to preserve the 2nd Amendment, fight gun control and secure sweeping gun rights, its clear that the NRA is selective as to whose rights they actually care about.
