This is why I was. A "lapsed" member for many years until "Re-Joining" in early 2013. This is the kind of crap that pushes people away from the NRA......

I heard the NRA pres speak for about 5 minutes at the yearly gathering in Texas, I shut it down minutes into it, he was talking about acceptable fondling of our freedoms, thats not what I signed up for! How do I support these folks when they dont get it!

Sadly, even with the voices of the NRA growing in numbers, when they sit at the table with Republicrats, compromise is the only solution they have to offer. Lets face it, the Feds and States arent listening, they are demanding we bow to them. You can compromise on dinner, wallpaper or velour seats but there really is no compromise when it comes to our Rights. They are a one topic group and dont demand the rest of the BORs be represented in their vision, they will sell their souls for a short term victory while were losing the war in states across the nation.

Anything that restricts, fetters our removes unalienable rights is a non starter!

Hey, folks:

The NRA leadership did not re-elect Joaquin Jackson to the NRA board of directors twice after he went on his anti-gun rant. NRA members re-elected the idiot. i caught an awful lot of flak from NRA members for daring to mention that Jackson went on his anti-gun rant. They talked about what a wonderful Texas ranger the guy was. It takes about 70,000 votes to get elected/re-elected to the NRA board.

i've belonged to the NRA for over 50 years and i can't find a roster of the board of directors because the NRA leadership took the roster of board members off their website. The NRA leadership is not proud of the fact that there are some sorry members on their board of directors.

Maybe I'll just keep my $$ in the State of NC where it can be watched more closely, and spent more wisely. Maybe we need 50 strong little NRAs working together when possible. HHHMMMM, sounds familiar.

Thank for posting this BigCountry! I will get my vote out against these two! There should be no compromise on the second amendment, period!

I think we need to have the leadership reminded of what happened when the Jews In the Warsaw Getto "Compromised" with the Nazis....

There are enough gun restrictions. Enough. Five-round mag limits are a huge step in the direction of a total gun ban.

And that's why the members elect the board.

So why doesn't the Executive send out recommendations on who should be on the Board, complete with proxies...or have I not been reading my NRA mail?

Isn't that how it's done? Maybe foreign members don't get to vote?

I am unhappy, unhappy, unhappy. We have people up here, too, who think the right to arms really means the right to go hunting. We call them liberals....sometimes, worse.
