While I don't always agree with the NRA, I am a member and plan on continuing being a member for the foreseeable future, there will never be a "perfect" organization but in general I feel they "have my back".

Sometimes I wonder if we just spent 10% of the money we spend on Guns and Ammo towards the NRA, we would not have to fear so much that our supply will dry up??

If we donate some of that money we may never need to cache our weapons/ammo

GOA is a fine option. The NRA is not the only voice amid the din. In N.C. we have Grassroots that is a nice org. Valone gives'em hell---and richly deserved.

I have heard some dissenters, and agree with some points, specifically, they really should be a little less wasteful with the monies donated to them. We don't need the NRA hats, NRA range bags, or the magazines.

If you really enjoy the magazines, by all means take them, if you don't care about the magazines, refuse them on your membership application. they could save some money for other projects, and not need to send letters asking for donations quite so often. If the requests for more donations come in the mail with a bunch of bills, the requests usually go in the circular file.

It would also spread the membership around if less expensive memberships were available for low income. There are folks who probably have the same beliefs as the rest of the membership, but can not afford to participate. Maybe current members could sponser a Battle buddy? Just thinking.

I don't necessarily agree. The NRA apparel is simply marketing and advertising. My roommate got his NRA hat in the mail, I saw it and 'oh yeah, I should renew my membership.'

It's the same reason Nike has that stupid swoosh on every single thing.

NRA member, currently. My grandmother was receiving junk mail and phone calls 5 years after my grandfathers death. She sent the letters back, wrote letters, told them on the phone he was dead and not to call back, etc. It took my check with my membership renewal and a stern letter to stop them. When she receives anything from them again, I'm done. They redefined disrespect with my grandmother, imo. There are other pro 2a organizations, which I made clear in my letter.
