When uncle Nugent is president I'll renew my membership.
I feel the same way, But will continue to send $$ to the NRA and ILA, dont know what else i can do besides voting..They are very effective, especially in the "gun rack" democrat states. I'm with you on Uncle Ted, regardless of his past, he is a strong advocate in our corner now....

Failure does not get you a challenge coin.
Blaming NRA members is, IMO, ignorant. The NRA has only 5 million members, and that's post Sandy Hook numbers. They swelled after Sandy Hook, which was a month after the election.

Lets assume 100% of NRA members voted for Obama. Do you really think 5 million votes, across the country, would have changed the election outcome? Unfortunately Obama ended up winning by a fairly healthy margin in Ohio and a couple other swing states.

In reality, probably the vast majority of NRA members did NOT vote for Obama. I don't have numbers, but I assume most voted for Romney or third party candidates.

You want to blame someone? Blame Romney for running a bad campaign. Blame the inner city vote.

Don't blame people who probably did everything they could to stop his re-election.

You are correct mountainman. When I voted for Obama, I was an NRA member. When my membership expired, I chose NOT to renew it.

Different reasons, same decision. They still get plenty of money from me anyway.

I think that most people don't even keep up with the gun laws until there is a threat of taking something away. Thats when people take notice. But how many of us are involved in the NRA other then giving them a few dollars here and there to fight for our rights. They have alot of programs out there. Take the time to check them out and get invovled. I just wished they would come out my way more often

Good point. While I'm not currently paying for a membership I am still paying for certifications from them and I will continue to be a part of the programs they offer at my club.

This is not a time to give up, or give in. Throwing in the towel is not a viable option.

After this last election fraud, I upgraded my membership from Life, to Endowment life, purchased a Life membership for my wife, and once her membership came in the mail, I upgraded her Life membership to Endowment Life.

Once your boat springs a leak, is not the time to throw pans overboard, and take a nap.

Wow! You are one romantic dude. I'll bet your wife liked that better than a new vacuum cleaner or a new set of canning jars even.
