Oliver North set to become the next NRA president

quote [ he National Rifle Association has announced that retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North is poised to become the gun lobbying group's next president.

North is a popular speaker before the group and brings star power at a time when gun-control advocates seek to seize on momentum against the gun lobby in the wake of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history and one of the deadliest school shootings.

North is already drawing comparisons to former NRA president Charlton Heston, who famously uttered that his firearms could only be taken "from my cold, dead hands."

North will be replacing Pete Brownell, who decided not to seek a second term. ]

Speaking of satirony, the NRA's political wing is considering having their 2020 National Convention in Las Vegas.
The city's glitz would "promote a different type of image of Republicans" that lines up President Donald Trump's image, [Nevada Republican Chairman Michael] McDonald added.

It's nice of them to acknowledge that Trump's image is of tacky, sleazy attempts to hustle suckers out of their money.

He and I went to the same high school. Not at the same time though.
HoZay said @ 2:02am GMT on 8th May
Might get you a deal on some guns and/or cocaine.
WeiYang said @ 10:11am GMT on 8th May
i used to buy pot from a guy who did go to school with him.

That's why Don Blankenship calls him Oliver "Weed Man" North.
