NRA sends Democrats a message over Holder vote

Washington (CNN) - When the National Rifle Association decided to keep track of those House members on both sides of the aisle who voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress last week, it was also sending a message to a number of embattled Democratic congressmen seeking re-election in conservative districts in the fall.

The message: Vote right, or we'll let your constituents know.

    Of course congress is full of loosers, NRA are also in the same boat as the loosers in congress. NRA what a waste of life, just like all those who can't stand up for themselves.

    Threats? That's illegal, NRA.

    Where are the police? Why haven't the members of the NRA making these threats been arrested?

  6. GROVER NORQUIST IS A ENEMY OF THE STATE/ConservaFASCISTS

    The NRA is no different than Grover Norquist. They're a special interest group who shouldn't be influencing our politicians. Any polotcian afraid to take on Grover or any special interest group for that matter is a COWARD!!!

    All those who walked out, need to be terminated; Vote them out. They did not do the job they were sent to Washington to do. I would think the people who voted them in should think twice before they mark their ballots next time. Of course, we should have a right to shoot.
