Tips

Here’s a tip. Tell us what the resolution is or what is being done to bring justice and peace of mind to American citizens. This story is one of lies, theft, greed and fear. All perpetrated by the same organization that says they are good people. “The best people”. They breed fear and hate for financial gain. Hypocrisy and contradiction are the currency of the NRA.

Gangster Capitalism-Amazing

I was totally hooked on this podcast and didn’t want to stop listening! Excellent podcast. 5 Star for me!
And please, please make them pay!

Wow.

Well researched and presented. Informative. Disturbing. NRA leadership living like kings with no conscience and loss of original mission. Greed with no repercussions never looking back on their path of destruction. Tragic.
