    Good for the NRA! this is where our strength as gun owners will be, in larger voting numbers than the liberal gun haters. i have mentioned several times on other posts about this, join the NRA or some type of firearms association, so that our voices will be heard.

    if you were a member and let your membership lapse, then renew it, please. a huge number of gun owners represented by the NRA or like minded associations, can send a very clear message to the politicians. WE VOTE! not representing us, as a huge voting block could have a negative impact on your future as a politician. we can vot you out of office and put another in your place.

    I'd like to add to that axxe, if you folks are members already, why not make a small contribution. Even small amounts help and it costs a lot of money to fight these battles.

    Yes. Membership in the NRA is more important now than ever. Please do your part and either join or renew. Also get any of your shooting pals that aren't members to join.

    Yes!!! And please, don't forget the GOA. They've been on the offensive since day 1.

    Great idea...also be sure to check your LGS, many offer a discounted annual membership. I think one of the Midway USA sponsored TV shows on outdoors channel pays the first $10 as well...

    Ive been a member for years.There are alot of people joining the NRA and contributing money and basically putting their faith and our guns future in the NRA I hope they bring it and fight hard and dont let us down. I wouldnt be a member if I thought they didnt have my best interest as a gun owner covered. I guess we'll see.

    Kind of a shame that it takes a tragedy to get folks to join.

    It's not the tragedy...it's the screaming libtards!

    Personally, I hope the idiots keep screaming...we'll see how successful there "Adolecent in Chief" is when NRA Membership tops 6 million.

    Tack

    It seems like the NRA would have more members. Most gun clubs and competitive organizations require all who participate to join the NRA. The club where I shoot skeet and sporting clay requires all members and walk in guests to present a NRA membership card. Guests who are escorted by members are encouraged to join the NRA. DCWC requires all members to join the NRA. I haven't noticed any compulsory NRA membership by pistol clubs.

    Its a Damn shame. There are 150 million gun owners in America. It seems about 146 Million do not belong to the NRA.

    Yep, NRA membership does make a great Christmas present. Every year I buy 1 membership for a friend or acquaintance at work most keep the membership going themselves after they get in it and start reading the magazine.

    After payday, if the world doesn't end [insert rolled eyes picture] I will get my wife and daughter both a year membership most likely.
