Richard Childress steps down from NRA, citing his want to focus on his family and racing empire.
If I were heading a sportsman group not affiliated with the NRA, I'd start talking to these people and work to create a new group where they get to the roots and push for: training classes, background checks, registration for licenses to operate firearms, smaller magazines, target/sports emphasis.
These are public people who "speak" and "relate" to flyover sportsmen and could swing them onto your side.
Get ahead of the obvious outcome (gun ban) and push the NRA out. Might even get some moderate Dems on board to take the stigma of "they're coming for your gunz!" away.
