    New gun (front?) group launches July 4

    New gun group just like an old gun group?

    The newly-formed American Rifle and Pistol Association (ARPA) will officially launch on July 4, but already skeptics are wondering if this organization is not just a new incarnation of the American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA), which turned out to be a front group for Democrats and soon vanished after the 2008 elections.

    As much as the NRA annoys me with its monthly membership renewal notices, I'll stick with that.

    Just how do they intend to protect our rights without lobbying?
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    A buddy of mine sent me this interview of one of the guys that started the group.

    Confessions of a Former MAIG Supporter | American Rifle Pistol Association

    Doesn't necessarily sound shady to me but also doesn't sound extremely beneficial. Essentially an online forum with board members? I guess I don't get the point.

    Not certain about the veracity of this "interview." It seems more of a spoof to me.
