Junk paper mail? Drop it in the can and stop whining.

My membership is a gift from step dad, I've mentioned this many times. If the only benefit I every get is just the magazine, I'm happy with that.
You have no clue how much junk mail they send, it really is pain in the ass, and now for the past 2 weeks they've decided to start calling every damn day. It may be the difference in yours being gift membership and us signing up our selves, might be why you've been spared the junk. Haven't had a problem with excessive e-mail.

Being able to opt-out of the mail and phone calls I'll probably go ahead renew my membership.

I've been a member for about 3 years now. The magazines are good so the cost of membership is worth that. I don't know how much good the are actually doing but with the emails they send the do a great job of keeping me informed of all issues coming up nationaly and also on the state level. When Tennesse was changing some laws about where you can carry everytime there was a vote or a change i was notified. I do like that about them.

Maybe it is the gift membership. In that case, I'm thankful for it. Still, I do get lots of junk mail from else where. I just drop it in the can and move on to the comics.

Even if you do find the number to stop it, I'm betting that you mysteriously get opted in after some time and have to opt out again. I'd pay twice the yearly dues if they would really just send me 1 (one!) renewal mail after 11 months and absolutely positively nothing else.
Maybe you need to find a buddy who got a $300.00 Life Member deal and spend the cash to become one. I'm a Life and Endowment member, called them to request that I not be sent the junk mail, and have gone through better than 4 years without getting a shred of it.

How much trouble is it to trash junk mail? Buy a shredder, if it looks important, read the stuff, if not, cut it into little tiny pieces, and recycle.

What a bogus reason to bitch!

I love them. Had it not been for the NRA, those here would not have owned the guns they do. Some complain about the money issues but it takes money to lobby and go to court to help keep our gun rights. The requests for money through the year can be ignored.

Those not belonging to the NRA is like a hitchhiker getting a free ride while those with the car has to pay the upkeep.

Mail from people who are defending your right to keep and Bear Arms is junk? If you read and responded to this mail it would not be junk. It would be important messages between men of like mind on firearms freedom. The problem here is gun owners who will not contribute to or eternal struggle against the Left Wing.

How about those of us who no longer belong to the NRA but donate every time we order from Midway USA and the few other sites that have that option. I probably send more to them each year than your $25-35 dollar a year membership. Would that be okay or should I just do both to avoid being called a freeloading hitchhiker by a (insert cleaver insult here) because he shells out for the yearly membership?

Yes it is. When it's the repetitive requests to sign up for one insurance policy or another 2-4 times a week or more subscription requests to magazines I don't read. Just because they help protect our rights doesn't mean everything they have to say is pertinent.

It seems to be a sign of the times. So many benefit from organizations but refuse to join and support them. Then when the benefits are taken away by government action they are the first to cry, "Why didn't someone do something?"

The NRA is my way doing something NOW before it is too late.
