+1, although I don't think the HQ location is relevant unless there is something else to mention about it.Endorsed the National Firearms Act of 1934
Endorsed the Gun Control Act of 1968
Stood down on the machinegun ban in 1986
And most importantly, endorsed and advocated NICS.
on top of all that they're HQ is in Quantico, Virginia.
That's exactly how I feel. Except, I don't give them money now, and won't be anytime soon.The NRA is looking out for the NRA..like most huge lobbying groups.. When it is in the NRA's best interests..to abandon gun owners' interests..they don't hesitate for a second.. I too pay my dues..as a requirement of membership at my range..but otherwise..I wouldn't give 'em a dime.. If you're willing to compromise ANY of my rights..you're NOT on my side..period..
Politicians.I think thier problem is that they got too big and greedy.They have all turned into polititions.
What, exactly, is the purpose of this original post?......................elsullo
GOA --- need I say more? The folks at the GOA have it right and if we stood behind them instead of behind the NRA we would be much safer. Unfortunately 99% of people associate guns with the NRA.
I don't like how many gun clubs require you to be an NRA member- isn't it enough that you are a GOA member? If you know the GOA - you know damn well that they will fight dirtbag politicians on gun restrictions no matter what- no compromises!
NRA is certainly in the government's pocket. It is almost permanent division of the Republican party. The Democrats and Republicans are just two wings on the same bird of prey. They are playing the American people against each other. The NRA is just another part of the larger government psy-op.
