OK, here's the attraction;
We all suffer from the practical knowledge that a bad law can be passed and lasts forever - which makes it our job to see that it never passes to begin with.
Don't believe that?
When's the '86 NFA ban gonna be overturned?
The Bush I '89 EBR ban?
The GCA of 68?
The NFA of '34?
When the anti-gun side can truthfully point and snicker at how gunowners are completely disorganized to our cause - it thoroughly emboldens them to act without fear of any consequence.
Whether or not any of us believe in what the over-paid exec staff of the NRA mgmt says, collectively THEY - the NRA - are THE gunowner's BIGGEST LOBBY.
Pay your $25.00, then go back and sit and watch Real Botox of Beverly Hills while the NRA does the heavy lifting - but at least join to get the numbers up.
Yowza, the anti-gunners gotta love lurking on threads like this...
