People in general are slow to get involved or contribute money . That is why the NRA tries to rope in new members through club memberships , insurance etc . I think they should require anyone taking training from NRA to buy a membership .
A friend tried years ago to enroll in NRA's submachine gun course . The guy owned an MP-5 but was turned down because that training was " law enforcement only ".
He protested that NRA was training police who weren't even members but turning him, a member, away.
He quit the NRA, saying, " I didn't leave the NRA. The NRA left me . "

i think your friend had a valid point. there are private citizens who own legal fully auto firearms and they too should be able to get the same training if they wish to.

So... In your mind, a law abiding well trained military veteran like myself, who possesses and has maintained CCW's in 2 states for nearly 20 years.... Should disarm myself before dropping off or picking up my children from school?

Select-Fire training is only included in the NRA Police Training Program. Select-Fire is not a separate shooting program. These weapons must be certified by a Police armorer due to liability issues.

Why would you expose your CC weapon while dropping off your children any where? This is a non-issue. Allowing anyone to carry arms into Public Schools is also not rational.

Telling a law abiding CCW holder that they must disarm to be on school grounds is not rational.

...and who's talking about exposing their weapon?

You have that right. We have the right to disagree. The Bill Of Rights is a wonderful document it covers most our disagreements.

How much more anti gun legislature do you think would have been passed into law without the NRA and the GOA lobbying congress?
your support keeps that voice lobbying for us. use it or loose it!
Nuff Said.
