Review for National Rifle Association Of America, Fairfax, VA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

The NRA is nothing more than a Tax Exempt advertising firm for the Gun Manufacturers. The NRA has bought and own members of Congress who, at the insistence of their master (the NRA) have written laws that put the general public at risk. For instance:

1) Senator Todd Tiahrt (R) - who is owned by the NRA - added an amendment to a bill regarding the ATF. The rule change written by the NRA and known as the Tiahrt Amendment, forced the justice department to destroy within 24 hours the records of any gun buyers. The overall impact of the Amendment made it much harder for police to clamp down on illegally distributed guns.

2) Senator Sensenbrenner (R) - who is also owned by the NRA - added an amendment to the Patriot Act that was co-authored by the NRA - that prohibited the President from appointing a Director to the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Thus, there has been NO ATF director in 6 years. The result is without an ATF Director, laws. Without an ATF Director, gun sales on the black market cannot be monitored.

3) NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre said, “If I were to select a jack-booted group of fascists who were perhaps as large a danger to American society as I could pick today, I would pick the ATF." -- It was that comment that compelled President HW Bush to drop his NRA membership.

4) The NRA backed legislation prohibiting AFT agents from inspecting a firearms dealer more than once a year.

5) The NRA fought against the creation of a federal registry to track gun sales and backed legislation from releasing information from its firearms trace database.

6) The NRA opposes legislation that would close the gun show loophole requiring background checks for all gun sales.

7) The NRA opposed measures that would allow background checks to block terror suspects from buying guns.

8) The NRA fought for an Indiana Law that allows people to shoot police officers who are called to a home on Domestic Violence (see Indiana Law)

9) The NRA fight for laws that will block employers from banning firearms in their place of business.

10) The NRA fights against laws that will enable law enforcement from enforcing current laws.

Review for American Patriot Foundation Inc, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This organization is defrauding the US Tax Payer...... 1.) The 2003 IRS letter stated stated that any "donation" FROM this organization, American Patriot Foundation, SHALL be to another 501(c)3 as per IRS Federal Tax Laws ... However, this organization is raising money FOR and distributing money to an organization NOT set up as a 501(c)3....... To be exact: American Patriot Foundation is raising money for and donating money to: Lt. Col. Terry Larkin Legal Defense Fund - which is NOT set up as a 501(c)3 or any type of 501(c) for that matter.......2.) IRS states that 501(c) 3's "may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates." Yet, they are entirely against the President of the United States.......3.) This organization has not filed Form 990 since 2003 ... Why not? Where are their Form 990EZ forms?......4.) This organization is nothing but a "Birther" organization trying to distort facts and try to compel others to believe the President of the United States is illegitimate and should be tossed out of office ... that is political activity prohibited for 501(c)3's

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The media.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

dissolve it & turn the organization's leaders over to law enforcement for violating Federal Tax Laws.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

exposing the truth about them - they are con artists

Ways to make it better...

The people running the organization weren't CON ARTISTS and defrauding the tax payer.
