Republicans are spooked that the NRA’s collapse could jeopardize the GOP's prospects in 2020

The organization, once a powerhouse in electing Republicans, has been completely upended in recent months amid an investigation from the New York Attorney General's office, financial problems, and internal turmoil.

NRA meltdown has Trump campaign sweating

Republicans worry that the NRA and two other groups that have long formed the core of their electoral infrastructure will be effectively on the sidelines.

The National Rifle Association aired an avalanche of TV ads and pushed its 5 million-plus members to the polls for Donald Trump in 2016, propelling him in the Rust Belt states that delivered him the presidency.

Now, the gun rights group is in total meltdown — and senior Republicans and Trump 2020 officials are alarmed.

Oh well, put a bunch of unethical creeps in charge of any organization and you can expect them to run it into the ground eventually.

Happens to our federal government every time we elect a Republican President -- at least since Ike.

The NRA is just fine.

And they didn't push anyone to vote for Trump, their members would have done so anyways.

Since lefties are afraid of guns and don't even know how to shoot there are no democrats in their ranks.

Take Vietnam where we drafted a bunch of lefties, gave them guns, and if they didn't run off to Canada they ended up losing the war for us anyways.

Just shameful.

What's happening at the NRA is the perfect shitstorm of corruption, infighting, and illegalities. With some Russian spies thrown in for good measure.
Happy to see them lose their clout for the upcoming election and happy to see them go down in flames.
Thoughts and prayers, motherfuckers.

We don't need them anymore, we have Russia on our side.

No way you can win because Russia is going to release a TV ad.

96% of the people that own guns aren't members of the NRA.

Libs aren't nearly as good at remorselessly slaughtering defenseless women and children as you are, that's true.
