Another factor is funding. The FNRA raises money for the shooting sports and a club isnt eligible for funds if it is not affiliated.

Trip- through a group available only to NRA affiliated associations.

You should already be a member of the NRA anyhow, they are our voice in DC, and it was just a year ago we kept the 2nd amendment in tact by 1 vote at the supreme court, does anybody remmember that .....

I know nothing about the NRA affiliated insurance... But, I was part of an organization that used the "national affiliation" insurance, that is until I started researching the insurance. I even called the underwriter to review the policy. For all practical purposes, we had ZERO insurance. Once I brought all my research up to the rest of the board, the club president (an attorney) resigned, and the club VP (successful business owner) resigned. Neither one wanted to have any potential personal liability in case of an actual incident. In subsequent conversations with the underwriter, I asked him about buying insurance we thought we had, he said, "do you have any idea how much that insurance would cost? Why do think all those conditional clauses are in place?"

I learned a lot about insurance, conditionals, and clauses from that research.

I don't mean to bash the NRA, even though it may look like it

Supreme court is not going to make a decision one way or the other based on any work the NRA does. The only hope we have is making sure our legislature never forgets the 2nd amendment... especially when the Senate has to vote on the President's selection for SCOTUS members.
