Liberal Converts to NRA Life Member After Getting Terrifying Dose of Reality in San Francisco :: 03/13/2018

During an interview with “Cam And Company” host Cam Edwards, he explained that he isn't going to “hide” or “be ashamed” to support the NRA and shared the moment his views on the Second Amendment took a 180-degree turn.

The “life-long Democrat” previously wanted the Second Amendment repealed and once tweeted that “the NRA must be stopped.” Even after he was mugged at gunpoint by two men in San Francisco, it wasn't until two years later that he changed his thoughts on firearms.

As someone who lived primarily in apartment buildings with some added security features, when he started to build a house in Washington, he wondered how he would defend himself if someone broke in.

“That mugging along with being a homeowner really brought me around and got me to decide to purchase a gun,” he explained.

Moore waited until he moved to Washington to purchase a gun, and when he walked into a store for the first time, he classified the people who worked there as “really nice.” He let the those with knowledge on the subject “educate” him and frequently took his gun to a range to practice.

After doing research on his own and talking to his NRA-member nephew, he joined the NRA as a one-year member in 2016.

He contrasted comments on social media that the NRA was “inciting violence” with his new beliefs and called it a “weird” experience given his previous views of the NRA.

Moore admitted that in the beginning, he was a little “turned off” at how political the NRA was. But the left's “anti-Second Amendment,” “anti-Constitution” agenda, which sought to take away the rights of “really good Americans” pushed him to turn away from the Democratic Party.

He said he voted for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and joked that everyone watching would turn the video off at that admission. However, only a few months later, he “denounced” the Democratic Party because of its extreme anti-gun views.

“It took me a few more months to say, 'I'm a conservative. I'm a Republican. I support the president,'” he explained. “People need to respect each others' views and have an actual dialogue instead of insulting each other and calling each other a terrorist or a racist because you don't agree.”

Over time, as he became more interested in the organization and continued to do more research, he's repeatedly upgraded his membership, including becoming a lifetime member.
