They espouse an insurrectionist, anti-democratic philosophy, and they have a lot of people on their board that, to put it lightly, you wouldn’t want in polite company.

NRA gathering proves a big draw amid gun-control debate
[I would like to suggest that Mr. Horwitz read the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. The Second Amendment is specifically for insurrection in the case of tyranny and we do not have a democratic government. We have a republic.
And as far as polite company is concerned I would not spend time with the likes of Horwitz. I’ve spent time with several different board members of the NRA and I found them very pleasant.
At every opportunity Horwitz attempts to infringe up on my specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms. I’ve spent nearly 20 years as a gun rights advocate and I am no more inclined to exchange pleasantries with him than I would if I were civil rights advocate in a mixed race marriage and he were the head of the KKK.—Joe]
To paraphrase a great movie speech, Horowitz doesn’t know any more about polite company than he does about fornicating.

Clearly neither side has warm fuzzy feelings for the other.
The problem is their activism conflicts with my God-given right to self-defense and my Constitutional right to be among the citizens armed as a counterweight to tyranny.
I suggest a simple first grade approach we all learned. The gun control freaks need to “mind their own bees wax” as we would say. I have more colorful phrases for what I think of their activities, but Horowitz claims he likes polite company, so I will refrain.
