Y'all know the NRA? Of course you do. They dominate the conversation about gun control - or lack thereof - in the United States because, simply put, they oppose it. You won't be surprised to learn they have similarly conservative views on kneeling in silent protest during the National Anthem.
@NRATV tweeted about taking a knee yesterday, conflating support of the military with unequivocal support of the country itself. Hmmm. Interesting take!
At least one veteran disagreed, vocally and publicly - and he wasn't alone. Steve Kiernan served in Iraq and took the NRA to task.
