Hilarious! Elizabeth Warren’s Proposed Anti-NRA Lobbying Tax Wouldn’t Affect The NRA

Clueless. That is what every single piece of gun control legislation ever proposed is: clueless. It denies reality, and, typically, doesn’t even address the underlying issue. Or sometimes doesn’t even affect the organizations that the salespeople… er… politicians proposing them are using to sell the legislation to people.

Take Elizabeth Warren’s proposed lobbying tax (You can read more about that here). The short summary of her proposal is that she wants to tax the NRA for lobbying for gun rights. The problem? Her lobbying tax wouldn’t affect the NRA at all. Naomi Lin writes,

Elizabeth Warren’s proposed crackdown on the National Rifle Association’s influence in Washington, D.C., has a loophole.

The Massachusetts senator is a longtime critic of lobbying and money in politics, turning her desire for “big, structural change” to “level the playing field” into a rallying cry as she campaigns for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. And Warren, 70, often uses the NRA as an example in her pitch to primary voters.

The problem is that the NRA is a 501(c)(4) organization which is an organization which has the purpose of promoting “social welfare.” Other 501(c)(4) organizations include things like volunteer fire departments.

Warren’s proposal focuses on other groups such as for-profit companies who are lobbying government and, therefore, doesn’t apply to the NRA as they are a not-for-profit organization promoting social welfare.

Now, is Warren stupid? I’ll let you answer that question for yourself. What seems clear, though, is that she is ignorant about what she is proposing and about who she is dealing with. This makes her appear to be a very ineffective potential President of the United States. Just like she is an ineffective current U.S. Senator.

Frankly, Warren’s legislative screw-up is hilarious, and we should be telling everyone how clueless and deceptive that she is (trying to sell people on something to solve a “problem” that the “solution” doesn’t even address). If she is the best candidate that anti-gunners have to offer, then it seems likely that Trump has a slam dunk win coming up in the 2020 election.

  1. Her idea of “leveling the playing field” is to GET RID of YOUR opponents (right or not) Soviet COMMUNIST style. She is NOT POTUS material . . . Don’t vote for that Socialist/COMMUNIST! Team Trump and his allies 2020 – KAGA (Keep America Great Again).

  2. Chief Shits-In-Own-Teepee is an idiot. Lieawatha’s Presidential Promises are as lacking as her dearth of Native American DNA.

  3. She looks like a “Dip S—t. She probably has more stupidity coming. My dog has more Indian DNA than she has. LOL!

  4. Oh, come on; offering “solutions” that don’t actually address a problem is the Democrats’ specialty.

  5. In the US Navy during vietnam, we had a word that encompasses the entire spectrum of concepts on how America should be governed ….. SNAFU …. Situation Normal All F**ked Up ….

  6. There is no situation so bad that that the Demoncrats can’t make it worse !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. The list of the long train of abuses is growing longer and longer. They should be told that the reference to such in the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence doesn’t specify whether or not long refers to length of the list or the passage of time.

  8. I never cease to wonder why people refuse to “see the forest from the trees” and continue to use terms like clueless, or inept to describe the evil that these people such as warren and obama intentionally try to bring on the American people. They are not even trying to find solutions to problems they claim to exist. Their only problem is that without disarming the law abiding, patriotic America loving population they can not enslave us and bring on the hell of socialism ( Which is just a word to diguise the reality of communist dictatorship. )

  9. Leave her be…She is goofy and maybe little senile. Give her a beer and she would fit right in with the rest of us. A little fussy GMother is all she is, I am sure if she would had a visit with Puttin she would have bake a pie for him.

  10. Your article is correct if you only take into account the NRA. But you failed when not including the NRA-ILA ( Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America) nor the NRA-PVF (Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is NRA’s political action committee). So, in one respect, the NRA is a lobbying organization. You are correct in pointing out that Elizabeth Warren is a hack.

  11. I wouldn’t help the enemy by telling them how stupid they are. Now she will be trying to revoke the NRA’s tax exempt status. Sometimes the smartest thing to do is to keep silent and let the idiots think they’ve won.

  12. This is the perfect example of an air head jackass. Another worthless tuna crotch looking for a free ride.
