    The NRA, my confession

    Ok, so here's my dirty little secret/confession.

    I'm NOT a member of the NRA, I have dumb reasons, I was not a member years ago because my crazy former friend said if the anit's get their way, and pass canadian like gun laws, the NRA members would be the first to lose their gun's. I know now that's not accurate. Then, I went a few years of not carrying.

    My friend is now a lifetime member, I can get my lifetime membership for $300 through him, not the normal $1,000. I was telling another friend I was going to do it and he said "I'll never join them, they have too many liberal ties. they even endorsed (I forget the name), a liberal candidate for POTUS. Now, as a conservative, I certainly don't want to join anything where my money goes left, who can help me clear this up. I have 1 more week to make my decision to get the lifetime membership for the discount price.

    Thanks

    Gimpy

    Been a life member for a few years now, it's well worth it.
    Remember this "You will not be amongst the first to lose your
    guns", unless you WIMP out and voluntarily turn yours in...

    Go ahead and get the membership. No organization is going to be 100 per cent all the time. I'm a NRA life member and also a member of Gun Owners America. Don't be afraid of the gun grabbers, out smart them.

  6. I've been a NRA Life Member since '91. But I do understand what you're saying.

    I've been considering renouncing my Life Membership for years over some of the Demoncrap Liberal candidates they back.

    I understand their theory that a "Gun Friendly" Demoncrap is better than an anti-gun Republiscum. But I couldn't get them to see that a Vote for Jason Altmire (no matter how 2nd Amendment friendly he is) is a Vote for Nancy Pelosi.

    They just don't understand that If the Republiscum Control the House and the Senate there will never even be an anti-gun bill up for a Vote.

    Well: actually I think they do understand. But they're more interested in their own jobs than in the 2nd Amendment.

    The truth is that: If they support only Republiscum candidates they'll lose about half of their Membership. Few Corporate Entities have the will to do that.

    Another Truth is that the NRA is totally irrelevant. It's the Supreme Court. And Only the Supreme Court that counts. The NRA may have lobbied for the "Keller v DC" case but only the 9 Folk in the Black Robes got to vote.

    The NRA takes Credit and gets the Blame. But they are really irrelevant.

    So. Why don't I renounce my membership?

    I just like to piss off the liberal scum by wearing my NRA Life Member hat everywhere I go.

    Truth be told: if my Life Membership wasn't already paid up I don't know if I could write the check.

    But it's not just the NRA. I can't even convince by buddy that if he buys a car made by the UAW that his money is going to Anti-Gun Demoncraps.

    He whines and cries about the Obamaites taking his guns and then goes out and puts his money down for a Suburban.

    Oh well. Life goes on. And when the Evil Corrupt Government sends me a notice telling me where and when to turn in my Firearms I'll have to decide whether to obey the law or become a criminal.

    It is what it is.

    You Can't Change the NRA if you're not a Member.

    You can only make a difference in the NRA if you become a member and are able to vote for who sits on the board of directors. They may not be perfect but we can all work together to make them better. Join now or you will regret it later IMHO.

  9. Smile Thank the NRA

    I thank the NRA for being my spokesman for all things GUNS. They keep us well informed on all local, state and national issues concerning our gun rights and then tell us who to contact to correct that wrong., and they do it on a 24 hour basis 7 days a week. As members all we have to do is send the E-mail and/or call that legislator and keep the pressure on the gun grabbers.

    Again NRA thank You for helping to keep me and mine safe.

    If guns are banned I shall become a criminal to prove to the rest of the liberals that only the criminal will be armed. Member NRA

    Well, they certainly do more for my gun rights than I know how to do. I don't know how to lobby Congress, nor do I have money or contacts. I am a member for that reason, knowing darn well they are not going to make me happy 100% of the time, but 90% will do better for me than I could do for myself. JMHO.
