Open Carry Texas Founder C.J. Grisham States
"Dump The NRA"?
Back on November 19, 2013 Master Sgt. C.J. Grisham was arrested in Temple Texas on a charge of rudely displaying a firearm. The end result was a guilty verdict of interfering with police, and an appeal is in the works.
Apparently when Mr Grisham contacted the NRA, as an Endowment Life Member, for assistance in his case and was told they would help if and when he lost his case and wanted to appeal. It seems the NRA has had a change of heart......
Mr Grisham is now on a page and maybe a campaign to bring this issue to the attention of not only OCT members, but everyone on social media as well. There seems to be a new Facebook page called-
DUMP THE NRA
This comes on the heels of a rift between the NRA and OCT that drew National Media attention recently when an NRA article called
OCT efforts "weird" and "not neighborly".
CaliforniaRightToCarry.ORG Put out it's own press release about the NRA and the pending lawsuit to restore open carry in California recently and some have found it shocking.
I still believe that the NRA does a lot of good work for our "gun rights" but am disheartened for their apparent disdain for the peoples right to open carry, a right guaranteed by the Second Amendment as quoted in Heller from an earlier case.
"[A] right to carry arms openly: "This is the right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and which is calculated to incite men to a manly and noble defense of themselves, if necessary, and of their country, without any tendency to secret advantages and unmanly assassinations."" District of Columbia v. Heller, 128 S. Ct. 2783 - Supreme Court (2008) at 2809.
