Reid blasts NRA as only interested in ‘making money’ — after accepting its campaign cash

by Stephen Dinan  |  published on June 22, 2016

Sen. Harry Reid took nearly $5,000 in campaign cash from the National Rifle Association the last time he ran for election — which made his vicious attack on the gun group Tuesday striking.

After watching his gun control plans founder the night before in competing votes on the Senate floor, the lawmaker from Nevada blamed the group for the loss and said the NRA doesn’t mind suspected terrorists getting their hands on guns, doesn’t care about Americans’ constitutional rights and worries only about its own bottom line.

“Here is a little secret for my Republican colleagues: The NRA doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care about your constituents. It doesn’t care about the constitutional rights of its followers. The NRA and its leadership care about two things: making money for gun manufacturers and making money for the NRA,” Mr. Reid said as he kicked off the legislative session.

His frustration boiled over after he and fellow Democrats were unable to win passage of a proposal to ban those on secret FBI watch lists from buying guns. Even several Democrats defected to vote against the plan, joining Republicans who said the proposal ensnared too many Americans and denied them their Second Amendment rights without due process.

    IF ANY BODY IS IN IT FOR MONEY YOU DONT NEED TO LOOK T
    NO FARTHER IN THE SENATE! THIS STINKING BASTARD TRIED TO DESTROY THE BUNDY FAMILY FOR BIG BUCKS FROM CHINA TO OBSCOUND WITH THERE RANCH FOR A MULTI ACRE SOLAR RANCH!

  • Patriot47

    The NRA is only interested in protecting our rights and firearm safety. Prove your BS dirty harry with documentation of any other motives.

  • Michael

    Why was the NRA giving him money anyway?

  • Bill Cash

    REID, THE PIMP and Obama’s political whore.

  • Born in the South and proud

    Reid is so full of cow dung that I’m surprised he can stand.

    • mesaman

      Maybe I can help here; Reid doesn’t stand, he slithers. He leaves a wiggly trail of green partially digested alfalfa.

  • clem

    Harry (Asshole) Reid needs to flush himself down a toilet.

  • Dell

    To bad Reid the NRA is getting the job done.
    The NRA cares about it’s members and they
    care about our 2nd. amendment rights.

  • onefour

    What do you expect from a two face little weasel like Reid. I’ll be glad when he is out of there.

  • margaret

    Reid is just another one of the DUBOCRAT COMMUNISTS THAT ARE DETERMINED TO TAKE OUR FIRST AND SECOND AMENDMENT. THEY SHOULD TAKE THIS GANG OFF THE FLOOR WHO ARE HOLDING AMERICA HOSTAGE AND LOCK THEM ALL UP . THEY WORK FOR AMERICA NOT THE COMMUNIST BUSINESS OWNERS . 74 PERCENT VOTED NO TO GUN CONTROL AND THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS CLAIM 94 PERCENT WANT IT. BE CAREFUL OF THE COMMUNISM THEY ARE TRYING TO IMPOSE ON US. THEY ARE REALLY SHOWING THIER ASSES ON THE SENATE FLOOR AND LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF NINE YEAR OLDS WHO WANT THEIR WAY. REID IS A DOG.

  • Robert Wilson

    Reid? Who is Reid? I thought he was dead.

  • bentonsv

    So my question is, why in the heck would the NRA EVER give any campaign cash to Harry Reid of all people?!!! That’s no different than giving a campaign donation to Killary.

  • Bowserb

    My opinion of Harry Reid would get my message censored and me banned from the discussion board. He would have fit in with the Third Reich or Stalin’s commissars really well. I really hope there is a God, because that means Reid will spend eternity in Hell, and that is where he belongs.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    so reid has a problem with people making money , i guess reid, pelosi , hillary and oboma prefer to just steal it from the tax payers

  • Harry Reid seems to have problems within himself that he needs to address. I just hope he see’s what he has done to others when he allowed himself the privilege of holding back many suggestions from Republicans that could have bettered many problems. He strikes me as a very vain man that has to have his way, even if that way could be wrong. You would think at his age, he’d had learn something and became a better person. One of the men on the NRA knows much about what it is like to see evil at work [ the holocaust ] and knows how important our 2nd Amendment is and the whole of our Constitution.

  • mark laws

    Fire Reid!

  • Dick Ellis

    WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM THE AL CAPONE OF THE SENATE FROM THE STATE OF NEVADA! CANT WAIT TILL HIS TRIAL BEGINS AND ENDS WITH A GUILTY VERDICT! SCREW THAT OLD BASTARD! REMEMBER THE BUNDY FIASCO HE CREATED!

  • Mark Pascucci

    WHY, OH, WHY do the voters keep re-electing this shameless crook?!?!?!!?!

  • Bobby Hopkins

    reid is a 2 faced croocked annal orfice.he just bit the hand that fed him.way to go reid.no more from the nra.

  • DaveM

    If the NRA gave money…get a refund…Reid broke the Constitution and is a traitor!

  • Charlie

    Can it be said that Harry Reid is a typical hypocritical democrat only interested in personal financial and political power gains . What a big reason for term limits .

  • JL Brown Jr

    Oh yea those in congress, term limits, make insider trading illegal and punish those that break our trusy.
    Term limits for everyone from dog catcher to SCOTUS. Do away with career politicans! They get fat on our dime, enough of this cap of making millions on the backs of hardworking Americans, did you get that, Americans, not illegals

  • JL Brown Jr

    I say profile first, go after them. Bug mosques start watching them. If it were law abiding gun owners were the problem, by damn you would know about it. Because one we would let you know about it, we are not trying to kill anyone, we will defend our families, our home and our country, in that order. You come after us, it better be legal not some candy as excuse. They won’t go after the problem. Obama would rather send the thugs into our homes, going after law abiding gun owners. Big mistake. He is opening up our country to things like beruit, they need to secure our borders, profile the damn muslims.

  • charles becker

    Harry, go lay down by your dish.

  • Jimmee41

    Reid is ONLY concerned about the money…I think this is called projection when you see in others what is really your characteristic!!! This man is a typical lefty whose FIRST inclination is to lie and lie and lie!!!

  • Webb

    Reid is just another Liberal with A Elephant Brain and The Intelligence Of a Flea…
    Democrats Played to Their base…The 4 Bills were nothing but Show Votes and Rhetoric and One More Assault On Our 2nd Amendment Rights!!
    Vote Republican In November…Really Pizz Off Reid!!
    Support The NRA…The Only Voice We Have for Gun Rights!

  • justinwachin

    Harry Reid doesn’t care about America or Americans. He is bought and paid for by the abortion industry, the gay rights industry, and a variety of extreme left wing causes such as the global warming hoax.

    Under Reid’s “leadership” the federal government’s debt skyrocketed. Under Reid’s leadership the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was forced upon us. Can anyone say that this law has made their health care more affordable? The only ones who can say this has worked are the ones who are getting taxpayer subsidies to pay for part of the insurance premiums.

    Harry Reid is the last person who has any right to criticize those who exploit America.

  • Bob

    Harry Reid is the lowest form of species known to man. Ask the Steinle family how much they think of him for his stance on illegal immigration and his refusal to hold sanctuary cities responsible for her death?

    • Retired

      Hillary and Bill are not far behind.

      • Bob

        Agreed.

      • The Redhawk

        tHEY LED REID for YEARS…….. cROOKS travel together…..all a bunch of STREET WALKERS and REID is their PIMP!

          Reid is a pos just like them.

          • The Redhawk

            all a bunch of WH-RES!

  • downdraft

    And Reid’s only interest is in HIMSELF…NOT AMERICA

  • The Redhawk

    gotta give it to this DRONE!!! may be Reid is in NEED for another BLACK EYE this Miserable BAST-RD
    This PIMP is UN-FREAKIN BELIEVABLE… but then he is a Progressive Hypocrite ….as is the MSM that quotes him!!!

  • Daniel W

    Hey Harry you can hang this garbage in your closet. People know where your’ coming e in from Harry and I guess the next election time THEY ARE not going to allow you to rise the boating dead and illegal aliens

  • chris berrian

    The NRA should be advacating the full 2nd amendment not half a**ing and cowering down too politicians and money. A well regulated militia being nessacery for the security of a free state. It’s time!

  • WhiteFalcon

    This just shows what a two faced liar Reid is, which we all already know anyway.

  • gerald Hughes

    Will some one shut that pimp up?

  • Rodney Steward

    Reid has always been a 2 faced liar and has always been a big NRA backer! I hate the B-TARD but have to give him credit for this!

  • C William Hanscom

    I guess he is taking to much money from the democratic party to vot for them. It is the dems. who do not care if terrorist have guns and do not care about this country or their constituents.

  • Lkfeinb

    It is really good there is an outlet for the radical right to rant and rave.

  • 1John_Galt2

    Harry Reid is a rags to riches story of a government politician. Corruptness at it’s best. Nothing this dickweed has to say is worth listening to.

  • Tiger

    This huffing and puffing by the likes of Reid and Demoncats is wearing thin. They have no care for the lives of the American people, they are all guarded and their guards have guns. The day they, including Billy, Hillary and O and all tell their guards to go away or carry pea shooters then maybe someone would give ear to their babble.

    It is blatantly apparent that they want our guns PERIOD and one has to wonder WHY???????????? WHY from honest citizens? Bad guys always have guns. Look to Paris, strict gun laws what happened?

    Now we have 8 million Muslims in America and we already have been told and congress that ISIS is here, FBI has over 1000 Active cases across this country on them and they want us unarmed. What a gift that would be to ISIS, we would look like the ME in short order.

  • mesaman

    The self-annointed guru of stupidity, Harry Reid, is a garden variety hypocrite. Ask him about the world class shooting park he pressed the dung beetles (aka democrat, socialist, communist, liberal party) into funding in Las Vegas. He’s senile now and waiting for an invitation to play it out in the Meadview Assisted Living, Mausoleum, and Gambling Casino.

  • All_Right

    The bigger question is WHAT THE EFF is the NRA doing giving this scum bag a dime? Hey, Wayne & Chris, quit begging for more MONEY from me if you are going to give it to crooks.

    • Jae Ashley Stewart

      I TOTALLY AGREE. I didn’t know someone beat Reid up. Is that really true? If so, why did they stop!

  • peter

    Harry Reid is your typical liberal a-hole moron who makes completely dumb statements since he came into office and those who voted him in office are probably of the same low IQ

    • Bowserb

      Don’t you think the mob has kept him in office, because he so easily controlled?

  • doug

    so say’s the thieving lowlife who made mega-millions on his senate salary and who tried to sell the Bundy’s cattle ranch to the Chinese communists for five billion dollars for his thieving son rory to get rich on, when he failed, this was why they beat him half to death and put one eye out !!!
    reid is a filthy commie wanna-be and should be in prison next to Hillary !!!

    • ARJAY

      Should be hanging from a tree!!

    • Rodney Steward

      Reid was the one that basically ordered the killing of Lavoy Finicum for pay back ! And of course the ATF assassins were more than happy to take care of the job!

      • Bowserb

        Of all law enforcement in the U.S., ATF is the least ethical, least trustworthy, and the most easily swayed from justice. The love their jobs as puppets of the U.S. chapter of the NWO.

        • Rodney Steward

          You hit the nail on the head my friend, like U said, they LOVE their job!!

    • Kenneth Fichtl

      Many in his family are already on the payroll. He is a disgusting human being

      • DaveM

        Please do not insult the human being! He is lower than that!

    • SDofAZ

      Not just his senator salary, that is peanuts to what he has made doing the deeds of his donors and big business backers. Lobbyist are lined up giving this turd anything and everything. Big conflict of interest for him and rest of the dems and rinos but they can do it and have no consequences cause they make laws but exempt themselves. Watched em all do insider trading for years and I would go to jail if I did that with insider knowledge. Reid is among the worst of the opportunist in DC. This man deserved the beating someone gave him a year ago and more! Traitor, liar, and enemy of the legal constituents of this country and a primary supporter of the NWO agenda. Sic em!

    • Robert Wilson

      And don’t forget our noble president, who should be under hillary.
