The ad is designed to swell the organizations numbers and appeals to themes of independence and self-reliance, pride, and of course, adrenaline-fueled, cowboy diplomacy, kick ass and chew gum and we’re all out of gum, go ahead make my day, this far no further, YOU CAN TAKE OUR LAND BUT YOU’LL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM – OR OUR LAND – WIN ONE FOR THE GIPPER, ANY GIVEN SUNDAY, PRY IT FROM OUR COLD DEAD FINGERS American bad-assery.

  1. Isn’t claiming only members of your organization to be the “good guys” kind of a douchey and alienating move?

    1. I don’t think that’s what they said. Nevertheless, I still believe in good guys – I’ve known a lot of them over the decades: the few, the proud, the Marines. There are a lot of other patriots as well.

      I know the bad guys certainly do surround us – in fact they have co-opted legitimate government and are busy subverting America. The go by the name of progressive democrats.

  2. If you can secure my membership and the information I give from the nsa or any other government office, because if they wont that info, they will do anything it can to obtain it even if it violates MY RIGHTS! as an AMERICAN!
    I would be happy to join. THINK ABOUT IT PEOPLE! You can never be to safe!

  3. Good ad. I noticed right away that Chicago was used as a backdrop. Very appropriate, considering the pols there have turned it into a present day killing field with their anti-gun policies.

  4. I read part of an article on yahoo news yesterday….or the day before….about Americans being really stupid when it comes to guns. The blogger was some lady that won the Pulitzer Prize for something or other…blogging maybe? She was an idiot and I didn’t make it very far in the article.

    She started off by saying that we believe in “stand your ground” laws that allow angry men to shoot and kill unarmed men. Nothing else attached to the statement to clarify. She made it sound like the people being shot are completely innocent and minding their own business. Never mind that “stand your ground” laws only apply to people that are acting in self defense. The stupid b acted like the people that don’t get charged because of “stand your ground” laws are the criminals and the attackers are the victims. She is a really stupid b.

    1. Yahoo! is my home page. 98% of the articles come from the propaganda arm of the DC junta. Good place to find out what the left is thinking if you don’t have TV. They covered Palins’s NRA speech and the leftoids were livid in the comment section.

      1. Lol, let them be livid. It’s kinda odd, because no one in the comment section agreed with the gun control lady. She was getting hammered big time.

        My comments on an article about a lady supposedly getting fired for being lesbian were all hidden because of too many thumbs down. All I said was there was no proof she was fired for being lesbian and the mayor had a list of reasons why she was fired. The lefties didn’t need proof.

        1. Anger is a secondary emotion rooted in fear. When the libtards get mad, they show you how scared they are. There are a surprising number of conservatives that get Yahoo! news, just look at the comment on one of their global warm-mongering propaganda pieces.

          1. I take it the conservatives fill up the comment section. I don’t check Yahoo news often because most of the article headlines are pro liberal, but I think I’ll keep an eye on it more.

            1. Some, like the global warm-mongering articles, are dominated by conservatives. You may see me there on occasion, I changed my handle to “Sarc Gasm” because the libtards just don’t get my humor.

              1. I don’t get it. Lol, just kidding. I’ll keep an eye out for you as well. I’m just under “Gary” there. I might look into seeing where I change it to match it here.

                1. Gary. Wow, that’s original! I also have several different interwebz handles (Including my own highly original Jay W) that I’ve considered consolidating someday when I’m not so lazy. I make it a point never to put off ’til tomorrow what I can do the day after.

                2. Lol, now that’s funny….and original as far as I’m concerned. I’ve never heard it said like that before…..the day after tomorrow.

                3. If you’d like to join, we’re having a Procrastinator’s Club meeting, one of these days. After all, there’s no time like the future.

  5. #BeClingers

    to G-D
    to Guns
    to Constitution

    IMV, the third doesn’t survive without reliance on the first and the silent threat of the second


  6. Way too vague-didn’t do much for me-Alinski says you must pick, personalize and isolate your target. This spot missed that by a long shot

  7. Damn, that’s a nice Ad. I want to point out though that while I don believe in what the Ad is saying, there are also members of the NRA that joined merely to have access. People like Michael Moore, he’s a life member merely to be able to use it as a talking point, maybe we need to do a little culling.

  8. I’ll join right after they admit the past mistakes in giving one Harry Reid a thumbs up. Until then, sit on it Wayne.

    1. That bothers me as well….Harry Shredded Wheat is a pathetic little weasel of a human and the NRA giving him a pass in the last election REAP WHAT YOU SOW NRA….trying to please your Senate Master certainly has won you NOTHING!! So now you talk tough….well I highly believe in the Second Amendment, however, I have some serious problems with a NRA that bends over when they think they can slide by….welcome to LOSER 101 NRA….Maybe you can send more money to Reid or try to smooth him over……HOW DID THAT WORK FOR YOU???????????????

      1. Your characterization of the NRA reveals your ignorance. We are the biggest obstacle between the people and the gun grabbers in DC. Do a little research before you start calling others losers.

    2. NRA grades politicians on gun votes only. You can be an unborn baby killer and a fag lover, but if you vote right on the gun issues, you get their approval. It’s just one aspect to take into account when you vote.

        1. Well, if you’re looking to the NRA for anything other than 2A issues, you’re looking in the wrong place. I find dingy harry repugnant myself, but he did have a good voting record on guns. I support ACLJ for instance, they are a big 1A group, but I don’t criticize their lack of support for guns. Different groups focus on different subjects.

          1. I see your point, Someone as repugnant as Harry deserves no support whatsoever. When you take his stance on socialism and lay it out on the floor, you’ll see his gun grabbing is just further down the list as everything else repugnant about him.

            This thread was about a commercial and so I like it just fine but will withhold support because aforementioned comments. There are other groups not as widely known such as GOA that suit my needs.

            1. Sure, the SAF and NAGR are also good groups. I especially like Alan Gottlieb of the SAF, I wish the NRA had a spokesman like him. Reid only voted pro-gun because of the rural nature of Nevada to get the needed votes, I’m sure.

  9. “It takes courage to be free”
    I never stopped believing in the good guys- but people need to know their rights and why they have them, who they come from. Not from any government. We need to educate people. Every way we can, our families, neighbors and friends.
    This ad is great. I hope it gets a ton of air time where sheeple will see it on- on MSLSD and the other alphabet stations.

    1. When the movie industry moved on from making Westerns, we lost the good guy image. Growing up with Gunsmoke, The Lone Ranger, Bonanza, The Rifleman, etc. was the only way to grow up.
      Whenever I can, I turn on a black and white oldies and am able to have a conversation with my grandkiddos about the way we used to be.
      I agree, the add was done well. Praying it changes at least one heart from the left to the right…

  10. Sorry but i didnt like it. I thought it was confusing.
    And I will never give money to a group that endorses RINOs like Cornyn in primary races. Even though Cornyn stood by and said nothing during the gun control fight. It was Ted Cruz who stopped them. Shame on the NRA!

  11. That this ad is necessary makes me very sad. My family has put on the uniform and fought for good since the Revolution. If they are watching today I’m sure they are brokenhearted and sobbing.

  12. I don’t think it was all that impressive. The only thing that really stirred me was the guy saying “Let’s be the good guys again”, but it was kind of in a vacuum and that lost some of its effect. If I didn’t know it was an NRA ad, then I wouldn’t have known what it was about until the very end.

    1. I agree. Educating people on the affect of gun laws in CT and NY would have clarified the message.

    1. Here’s one of the answers from Bloomberg and it’s pretty pitiful. The poster on the left is Bloomberg’s the one on the right is my rendition of what it should say.

      1. Excellent. Bloomberg’s poster reveals how little they actually know about firearms; however, the average sheeple wouldn’t know the difference.

  13. I wrote an article weeks ago “The Right to Revolt.” Because it isn’t theory any longer. I said the same thing in a recent radio interview. Out loud. In CT gun owners have drawn the line in the sand. I said it in the article and on the air and I’m saying it now. Let’s use CT as an example.

    If it comes down to attempt at gun confiscation then the citizens of CT have every natural right to spill the blood of the officers that carry out those orders.

    It is an uncomfortable fact but at that point we are there. The O’Reilly
    civil spirited debate is over. And after the fact if I were on the jury this is
    what I would do.

    I’d let the gun owners go. I would look at the wife of the dead
    government agent/ cop or whoever this corrupt government sent and I would tell her that her husband got exactly what he deserved—a riddle of bullets. That I don’t want to hear about how he was “doing his job.” The Gestapo could say that much. That I don’t care about her renditions of how he was a loving father and all the other emotional tear jerk effects that have nothing to do with the fact that he carried out an unlawful order. And if he got met with a barrage of lead then that’s the price you pay for carrying out an unlawful order.

    It is not up to us to go to a court room and politely ask for our rights
    back. Blood should have been spilled in New Orleans already over this. When they confiscated guns, not from the criminal, but the law abiding. And the message should have been sent loud and clear. When government agents overstep their bounds in a state of lawlessness then expect violence.

    We haven’t been in that situation for a few hundred years. And a few
    hundred years ago many believed the Patriot was a criminal. Many aligned with King George. Because many do not have the mental fortitude or stomach to possibly engage in things that are life threatening. Things that are not nice. Things that may have to be brutal. But sometimes brutality is needed. The sheriffs have a choice—don’t carry out unlawful orders against the natural rights of citizens. Uprising was the end solution in my fiction as well. Because it is necessary to defeat tyranny. It is unpleasant—but necessary. Unless you wish to be a prisoner. For as stated the greatest opportunity for evil to prevail is for good men to sit back and do nothing.

  14. The schools, news media, and entertainment have redefined the “Good Guys” as those who give a man a fish instead of teaching him how to fish. Hillary Clinton, turning to faith in a recent speech, used the Biblical story of the Loaves and Fishes to identify with the Good Guys and to denigrate self-reliance.

    We appear to have a Sisyphean task ahead of us.

    1. Awesome!….I’m copying this ad to The Canadian Sports Shooting Association…we need similar up here.

      Well DONE NRA!…..

  15. Wow! Makes me want to enroll all my neighbors!
    LaPierre’s speech was a good one too, Caleb. I don’t know if you intend to post it here.
