    In light of the recent election, and all the changes we may see pushed at us, I wonder how many of us are willing to spend a little hard earned cash and add our names to one of the groups fighting to protect our gun rights?
    I'll be the first to admit, I let my membership slide in a group well known for sending lots of unwanted mail. I get regular emails from another group that keeps us informed about subjects of interest, but I realized it's been 2 years since I renew membership with them.
    I'm embarrassed about this, and intend to rectify it. I think I would really like to turn on the news some time soon and hear one of the talking heads say, "Gun rights organizations have seen a dramatic increase in membership since then last election". I'd love to see the worry on his brow as he reports that we refuse to go down with a fight.
    I don't care who you join or how many, but vote with your membership dollars and make a statement that even the blind followers in DC can't miss.

    Anyone that wants to keep their 2nd amendment rights should join the NRA. Both my son and I are members.

    The organization you speak of is becoming a foot note in the history of politics. Their support did not affectively help the Republicans that could have made a difference in Washington. They wasted a lot of members money and did not get the results they predicted. They have been blinded from the reality of current politics by their dogged support of right wing nuts. Politics is a game of compromise and they will be an emasculated by-stander in the future. I am done donating to their "cause".
  5. Limited income but I do what I can with lifetime memberships in the organizations I believe in.

    Christmas is when I will renew my NRA. And of course my reloading back stock will be re-stocked. Yep, support the right cause.

    I belong to several PRO 2nd amendment groups.
    I do not belong to a well known "compromising" group.

    Either way, nothing seemed to help this last election. :(

    The NRA led a huge charge in this election. Unfortunately, they couldnt get it done on their own. They still are the leading pro gun organization in the country and always will be. Until anyone can prove different, my support will continue to go to the NRA. Join today!

    Put your mouth where your money is! Don't just join the NRA. Become active somewhere. If not with the NRA, join the Tea Party, or any other pro active group. Join your states militia, just become active at some level!
