Default NRA might support Harry Reid

For those that are interested, there's rumors that the NRA might support Harry Reid for re-election in 2010.

I'm disgusted by this. He is no friend to the second amendment!

For those that are interested and want to follow this...also, there is contact info for the NRA at the bottom of the article to voice your opinion to them

NRA - Harry Reid

A buddy at work sent out an email on this a few days ago. He had even phoned the NRA who told him that no decision on this had yet been taken. I fired off an email to the NRA advising them that I would immediately cancel my membership in the NRA if they in any way endorsed Harry Reid.

I shall wait and see. I am also a member of the GOA and the Texas State Rifle Association, so I have plenty of other places to send my political contributions!

If they back Harry Ried I will sever all ties with them and never associate myself with any event that they endorse.

Somewhere on this site a video has been posted of Wayne Lapierre slobbering all over Reid at a rifle range in Nevada. In my last issue of American Rifleman it had an article about the event with lots of pictures of Reid. As of yesterday I have called the NRA and told them I would not be renewing my membership, e-mailed them and am not supporting them with round up money when ordering from Midway in the future.

Well, there was a rebuttal posted this morning and they're saying some of what you are.

Worth the read to figure out what the NRA might be thinking
NRA - Harry Reid: NRA Rebuttal

Now, it is not likely that the GOP will win back the Senate in 2010. Next in line to be the Senate Majority Leader is....Dick Durbin, the senior Senator from Illinois.
Dick Durbin's seat is secure, and he's not up for reelection until 2014. He's been reelected 6 times. Research the voting record of Durbin and then Reid.
The NRA can be pragmatic (Reid is not an enemy of gun owners, he's just not as much of a friend as we'd like), or the NRA can stand on principle and we'd risk losing ground. Wanna gamble when we're likely to lose? And if the NRA backs Angle and Reid wins, do you really think he's gonna forget who opposed him? Especially when he's not up again for 6 years.
And now you know the rest of the story. (Loved and miss you Mr. Harvey)

you lie down with a skunk you aint gonn smell like a rose. reid is not a supporter of gun rights. he just talks. he will sell out the gun owners faster than obama can socialize healthcare. it is time the NRA got a little TEA party. if it comes to a vote on gun rights vs gun bans dont think for a second reid will vote against obama. the nra is a pork machine the will sell out in a heartbeat.

I agree! I think Reid will vote anti-gun as soon as his seat is secure in November. The only reason why he may be doing this is to try and get backed from organizations like NRA.

I am a life member. And if the NRA does back him I will cancel and tell them to take me off the rolls.
There are other organizations that I can support that do what they say. NRA backing Reid is short of treason to the function and purpose of the NRA.
If they do this there will be one member that will never go back.
