Hi All, First off, I know I "can" join the NRA. I'm wondering if I can do it without harming, hindering or otherwise going against my other political principles. I really don't want to sidetrack the discussion by going into the validity of those other beliefs. So, hopefully we can leave it at this: 1) I cherish the second ammendment and the rights that it grants. 2) For better or for worse gun rights are the domain and political property of the political right. 3) I'm a leftie in almost all other ways. Not a democrat, they aren't anywhere near far enough left. So, here is my fear. Every dolar that I give to the NRA goes into the pocket of someone who, while they fight for my second ammendment rights, is also working against gay marriage, or is trying to dismantle labor unions, or is a climate sceptic, etc. Again, please, let's try to stay on topic. Can a leftie, in good conscience, join the NRA?
