Thanks for the advice. I will do some research for myself.

Wisconsin is odd. I grew up in texas and its weird their but wisconsin is over the top.

More than half of the hardcore leftist marxist democrats voted pro-ccw so i guess now lena taylor from milwaukee will get a nra endorsement since she has supported ccw.

Taylor makes obama look like rush limbaugh.

The last time ccw was up for vote it got vetoed by doyle a democrat it was one vote short of being overturned by a democrat controlled legislature. Deciding vote with doyle was a republican.

Nra would get my support if they vetted their endorsements and issue support a little better. I wouldnt vote for lena taylor for dog catcher even though she is pro ccw. My point is thatthe nra just blindly hands out approval to issues and people without consideration of what harm its actually doing.

Its like the wacky prolife and prochoice crap. Those people will flush everything else down the toilet based on that one issue. Once you have powerthen you can vet your candidates on issue basisif they are one off.

Giving support to democrat liberals based solely on a gun vote, is like giving the keys to a kindergarten to the head of nambla just cuz he has pockets to keep em in...

That all being said, i dont want to turn anyone off nra membership its just a problem i have. I have a hard time with it because of the people they endorse. I really am on the fence with it.

If im not mistaken the nra endorsed reagan and he had a huge long history of gun grabbingand signed the biggest gun ban in modern history into law. May he and wayne lapierre rot in hell for it.

The NRA does not just select people from Washington The NRA members in each state select their choices based on their 2nd stand. Please post the Gun Bills passed by President Reagan during his gun grabs. I am most interested in the major gun grab bill he passed. If you want an organization to fight abortion, gay rights welfare reform don't blame Wayne. We are a single issue group who has been around for 150 years. It has worked. I think you should join some other political action group. The NRA is not right for you.

KID, i do believe tha Jon is refering to the Firearm owner's Protection Act of 1986. This act, signed into, law by then POTUS Ronald Reagan, is the law that prohibits the sale of fully automatic weapons manufactured after the date that it became a law, to civilians.

Not looking to start a fight, just putting in some food for thought.

Thx Kfox I had no idea what he was talking about. Wayne Lapierre was most likely in school back then. The Left Wing unions and the Rosie O'Donnell Holly Wood crowd hate Reagen and the NRA. The Gun Owners Protection Act was one of the few things that saved our gun right losses back in those dark days. He never mentioned the Democrats under Chas Rangle had all gun owners in the corner. The NRA which was a marksmanhip program to prepare young men to shoot if needed for war. Its much easier to call a race after its over.The NRA was not yet a political movement. There were no GOA or any of those groups. We were a small group with no funds taking on the DNC,Big Labor, Teachers Unions and Holly Wood to name a few. Did we make mistakes you bet many we were amature fighting the most powerful government on the planet. Did we win well we still have are firearms. Did we grow from those days. Yes from a few 1,000 to over 4 million. The Left tried to kill us 40 years ago we are stll here. No one remembers are enemies but we do. I have posted the Owners Protection Act.
