Secret Tapes Bust NRA Leaders Calling Their Members Hillbillies And Fruitcakes (PoliticusUSA link): Secret tapes of NRA leaders meeting after the Columbine shooting caught them referring to their members as hillbillies and fruitcakes. NPR got the tapes:
The NRA has such a stranglehold on Republicans that neither the Sandy Hook nor Parkland school shootings moved them to lift their blockage of gun reform legislation.
The National Rifle Association was so cozy with Trump because they are two peas sharing the same pod. They hate and mock their supporters, who they see as idiot hick rubes who are being played for their benefit.
