Why would Larry Pratt continue his attack on the NRA? Larry and his family owned business is a favorite of the Liberal Democrats. Anyone who attacks the NRA as not representing its members is saying what the anti gun movement wants to hear.
I would think Larry and his family would join with the 5 Million NRA members to defeat the Liberals. Chas. Shumer the most rabid gun control poltician in America would be the leader of the Senate if GOA would have had its way. Harry Reid NRA member is refusing moves to ban magazine and semi autos. :( GOA is not spending their money to fight gun control. The GOA {Pratt} family makes a damn good living from the membership.:(

The nra supported harry reid in the last election. Radical enough for you ? If you would read the title of the thread it states I support both. It is like trying to push a chain dealing with you.

I support both bc we as gun owners need to use ALL means available to stop this bs from some states and DC.

I read your post. I know you support the NRA.

My comment was aimed at GOA. IMHO, that group does more harm than good with their constant attacks on the NRA!

In the political arena, APPEARANCE counts. If your organization APPEARS to be a bunch of fanatics, you alienate potential allies.

We have the same arguments here in Canada between pro-gun groups.

The more the merrier, sez I. More pro-gun groups gives the appearance of a groundswell movement, which politicians fear. Multiple organizations also keep each other on their toes.

As a Canadian gun owner, I do not want a single organization representing my interests. Even though the organizations tell me how good that would be, I know human nature. Power corrupts. Gun control is as much about statism as it is about guns. Why would I want to create an oligarchy to protest the notion of an oligarchy?

I believe the GOA was founded by a U.S. Senator? I would think he knew a thing or two about how to influence politicians.

Anyway, I am a member and contribute to both our national orgs (and, btw to the NRA). I just sent a few bucks to this international one that looks good, too:

I don't want to say how much I have wrapped up in guns and accessories, but it's a lot. Donating hundreds each year is a minor detail to what I spend shooting and hunting. I don't mind spreading it around a little bit.

If the NRA had not of supported Harry Reid we would have an Assault Rifle Ban. If Harry Reid NRA Member had lost the senate Chas. Shumer of New York would now head that branch of congress.
Senator Shumer is the most anti gun politician in Washington DC. Harry Reid is from Nevada and needs the NRA support. He told Obama up front he would not introduce the AWB.
It is a wonder we survive with gun owners who have no understanding of our governmental procedures.:(
