    Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Do what you can to get your views known by the NRA or help shape it's positions. To cut off support for the NRA (which I did for awhile), is like cutting off your hand to get rid of a hangnail.

    Good post and provokes some thoughtful thinking.

    Ill bet most who do not support one or more(gasp) of the 2A orgns are those that helped elect the anti 2A politicians. 1/2 of those that post, even here, vote for those against their(our) rights..

    They will not shell out any $$ to support the right.

    Yep, every time I see these Anti NRA post on a Gun Forum I am reminded of why I am an NRA Patron. I have been in the NRA for over 50 years. It is sad to see gun owners siding with the left and attacking pro gun Orgs.

    Here are a few reasons you should join the NRA. :eek:


    "If it was up to me you’d ban all handguns, everyone of them. Burn ‘em. Get rid of them."
    -- Bob Beckel, host of Fox News' The Five, Dec. 3, 2012

    “I believe the NRA is the new KKK.”
    -- Jason Whitlock, FoxSports columnist, during an interview with CNN's Roland Martin

    It is surely rare that every person in any large group will agree whole heartedly on every issue whether its politics, religion, work, or family. However every individual must look at the big picture and decide if the ultimate goal of any group or organization aligns closely enough with your own beliefs to warrant your support. Do I support EVERY word the leaders of the NRA speak or print? No, not really but I agree with most and they have the largest strength in numbers, by far, of any second amendment support group, and they are respected in D.C. So yes, I belong and will continue to belong as long as they will fight for my Constitutional Rights
