Book Description

The recent gun control vs 2nd amendment debate exposes the open and dirty secrets of the NRA and gives hope to an aroused public and officials to end the NRAs two decade domination of Congress.

Author and Nationally Syndicated Columnist Earl Ofari Hutchinson exposes the NRA's massive two decade long campaign to intimidate Congress to torpedo any and every gun control bill. In his new ebook, How the NRA Terrorizes Congress – The NRAs Subversion of the Gun Control Debate, Hutchinson gives a penetrating inside look at the inner workings of the NRA's public and covert political, lobbying and funding operation that has held Congress hostage while enabling it to thumb its nose at the Obama Administration and public opinion on guns.

Hutchinson notes: “Since Congress's failure to reauthorize the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban which expired in 2004 it has been virtually mute on any gun curbs in the years since then. Since then more than 20 gun control bills and amendments have been written and introduced. Not one of them has made it to the Senate or House floor.”

He tells how the NRA routinely buys, bullies, hectors, and harasses congresspersons, ignores and holds in contempt the Obama Administration, gun control advocates, and the general public that clamors for tough gun control measures with one singular goal: to kill passage of any new gun laws.

Hutchinson writes: “This was plainly evident when the power behind the congressional throne, specifically the NRA's top congressional lobbyist, Chris W. Cox virtually ordered that Congress "reject" the tougher gun curb provisions. The dust had barely settled on the Senate’s vote to shortstop a failed attempt at a GOP filibuster against the compromise deal that the GOP and conservative Democratic Senators brokered on the gun control bill before other GOP and conservative Democratic Senators began pecking away at it.”

Even when it appeared that the NRA’s formidable arsenal of weapons might not be enough to stave off the public clamor for tough gun control laws, the NRA still has had enough overt and covert money and muscle to get its way and kill gun curbs. Hutchinson lays out the NRA’s chilling and wildly successful blueprint to hold Congress hostage in the following chapters.
• The NRA’s Post Sandy School Massacre Offensive
• The NRA’s Congressional Intimidation Report Card
• The NRA’s Election Subversion Campaign
• The NRA’s Big Mean Congressional Money Machine
• The NRA’s Game Plan for Future Victories, And How to Combat It

Hutchinson notes: "The NRA is not invincible. Though Congress turned thumbs down on the two provisions that the overwhelming majority of Americans want to become law: a ban on assault weapons and universal background checks, this in no way means that gun control curbs are dead in perpetuity in Congress. Obama has called tougher gun control laws "common sense." This signals that if there is a relentless and determined public outcry and push that a meaningful gun control bill could one day pass.

1.0 out of 5 stars A narrow view of the NRA with minimal documentation, ... 18 Sept. 2014
By Chip Lohman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A narrow view of the NRA with minimal documentation, errors in its 501c (3) structure, inacuate correlation of magazine sales to membership and confusion between the role of ILA and the NRA. I suspect lobbyist who tried to kill the electric car or who have tried to legislate against accurate labeling of the contents of our food escaped this author's wrath.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard-hitting dissection 25 April 2013
By Sikivu F Hutchinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A hard-hitting, timely dissection of the NRA lobby's insidious domination of public policy. The book provides blow-by-blow detail on the recent failure of stricter gun control legislation post-Newtown, underscoring the culpability of craven politicians and a complacent American public.
