Welcome to the NRA. As with other large organizations, there are issues I have problems with, buth overall they do a decent job.

Many times, brute force is what's needed to keep our gun rights. And that's where the NRA shines.

With an election coming up, even if you're not a huge fan, you should jump in with an annual membership. Bump up the numbers. If EVERY person that owned a firearm was a member, the politicians would hesitate a lot more before they crapped on us. I wish that every firearm sold since BHO became president had come with a free NRA membership. Think what those numbers would look like.
If nothing else, the American Rifleman is worth the price of entry.

Overkill,

Can you only imagine if every supporting gun owner would join. Politicians pay attention to numbers! That is all but Obama, Clinton, Reid, Pelosi and Holder. I think Biden is even very aware of the numbers. Keep in mind they want to keep their plush jobs and lavish existence!!! We need to unify. To each his or her own as long as they do not shove it down our throats! But we seen what happened in the recent Chick-Fil-A issue when the folks stuck together and supported the Owners right to freedom of speech. It flat worked and also created the largest sales the company ever had with thousands of people lining up and supporting the owner. The same would definitely apply if we all backed the NRA and came out in major numbers. I really think the majority of Americans is getting real sick and tired of what is going on at the present time!
God Bless America and let's take it back! And let's protect our Second Amendment Rights for the future. It is under attack for those who have not figured it out! This contrary to popular belief this is not a political statement it is a cold hard fact!
God Bless America and the true Patriots and Gun Owners here on the FTF! We are also along with the NRA the defenders of the Second Amendment and our Constitutional Rights and Freedom for our following generations. Thanks to all of you for standing up for what is right!

I've been a life member since 1957, and an endowment member since 1974

I don't alwayus agree with their selection of candidates either. But I finally came to realize that the folks they support are pro-gun. Whether they feel pro-gun in their hearts, or whether they're scared to death of the NRA doesn't matter. The way they vote on 2A issues is what matters.

Also, remember the NRA is not a conservative or liberal orgasnization. It's a one issue. pro-gun oprganizarion. And therein lies it'
s strength.

Welcome to the club, Jon!

the thing that really tipped me over the top was romney picking ryan as VP. this means that we need all the firepower against gungrabbers as we can get. romney and ryan both arent the best on gun issues, but with something as large as the nra they can be swayed to the constitutional side of a decision. with that pick it means that possibly 16 more years before we can get a solid pro-2A candidate in office...

Welcome to the group. I too struggle with some of their candidates. I also will tell you that there will be plenty of junk mail, and phone calls for donations. They also will start mailing you requests for next year in about two weeks.


By and large, as a one issue group, they do a good job.

Neither did I so I called them about it...

The woman I spoke with said they had been absolutely inundated with processing new/re-new memberships that they have pretty much run out of the freebies. She said I will get one, just going to take more than twice as long as the promised 6-8 week delivery. (She really did sound frazzled on the phone bless her heart...)

I can wait...

I bet its made in China like the hat that I got. Not only is it Chinese, but the American flag on the band is backwards. I really don't believe that there is not a single American hat company out there that can compete with the to provide the NRA with some Made In America hats!

Seriously NRA, that is a big deal to many of us.
