I've been an NRA member for near 25 years.... Without their lobbying, who knows where we'd be today. I'm just glad they're on our side. They assissted the shooting community since the late 1800's and today they continue by helping us all protect our 2nd ammendment rights.

I will say that a march is not a bad idea when you think about. A valid point is made. The NRA shouldn't have even been mentioned. The "employed" or "we have jobs" reason really isn't a good excuse since it could be held on a weekend. I guess the question would be, is it possible? I am sure that anyone living outside the neighboring states of DC would not take the time to drive or fly there for a day of rally, even if it were held on a weekend. Not to mention that the effort would have to be planned out for weeks or even months in advance. You can't just march up to the Whitehouse in protest without preperation.

The only protest that will get the attention of Congress would be siege ... otherwise they will just ride it out like the did the OWS protesters of 2011/12

As I mentioned in another thread supposedly there are 80 million firearms owners, yet only 4 million NRA members. So there are 76 million firearms owners who have all manner of excuses as to why they can't/won't/shouldn't/unable to offer up a measly $25 for a membership


Strength in numbers ... too many firearms owners do NOT understand this philosophy

I hear ya and I agree. They'll come up with ideas to march on capital hill, meanwhile possibly losing a days pay and/or the cost to get there, but they won't spring for membership fees. Makes you wonder where their head is at.... Don't answer that.

I love the Idea Actually but I wouldnt just do it in Washington, it should happen across the USA right out front of The County Seats! All Politics is local, they need to see the locals standing side by side as neighbors not just mobbing the Crapital. That would be much tougher to ignore than a single gathering and I bet allot more people would participate knowing they wouldnt have to travel far and stare across the line at Federal Police instead of our own local forces that probably would be less confrontational with Neighbors!

We wouldnt have to scream or yell, throw crap like the Occupiers or set up tents. Stand silently out front of our local government offices with the same sign, "I support an "Unfettered" 2nd Amendment and I Vote". That would get their attention better than a million targets on a field listening to overpaid "Keynote Speakers" and "Republicrats" paying lip service to us in public then stabbing us in the back when we close our eyes for a second!

Think about it- many hundreds of separate gatherings, with Millions of folks who's influence cant be limited by a Protest Permit Application or press passes, just come as you are and tell everyone you know to come join us.

National coverage would not be shown. They, like other factual points of interest, will not be spoken of. It would be as if it never happened.
So much for free press, free speech, etc. Welcome to the new USSA!

I think you need to study some history.

The NRA was around as the Nations leading authority on gun safety and marksmanship training looooong before there was any need to become a lobby group in defense of 2A liberties.

Start with the early 1930's and work your way up to the present looking and the history of gun control and the evolution of the NRA.

Once you've educated yourself...come back here and make a comment that hopefully does NOT begin with "seems to me".

Tack
What scares me about the NRA is they supported the gun ban of 1968. If the the gun law of 1968 died on the floor of congress we would have no need for the NRA. I am not sure if the NRA is a scare committee for gun/ammo manufacturers. They raise a lot of money from only 4 million members.

If there is no scare going on the weapons industry doesn't make as much.

Education is not an issue here but thanks for sounding like a biggot. Just stating the obvious. If gun bans werent brought up why would we honestly need the nra? And by looking at the obvious what good are they accomplishing? With this muslim president in office nra doesnt have much chance. He is out to disarm the white man for his pride and joy.......i believe all gun owners should stand up for their rights and take a different approach than taking the coward way out n paying someone to protect them....

I don't buy this -- "can't" really means "won't." Gun people lean towards common, cheap, lazy but angry individuals. Look how far they'll go to save a penny, how few even belong to NRA, and the fist-shaking attitudes but lack of personal commitment and organized involvement they find excuses not to make -- it is utterly astounding and embarrassing. And the ones with the biggest mouths and tightest-clenched fists are usually the least knowledgable or active.

Whoever is reading this, of course I don't mean you...

If you don't have the time to write your Congress person than it makes sense to donate to the NRA.

Let them do it for you.

Join the NRA and affiliates before it's to late.
