I just joined the NRA.
Yes I am
No I am not
I was gonna join but
I just joined the NRA.
Life Member since 2003.
I am, but my membership is about to expire. Don't think I'm going to renew it.
Just added another year per their offer.
Well, for the 5 who are not members, do you realize you are not supporting a major representative and lobbying force in the crucial fight for freedom and 2nd amendment gun ownership rights in Washington D.C. and the entire U'S.? Just wondering the reasoning for such apatheism?

The NRA is the only significant voice we have in D.C. This year I also joined the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America. Last month I realized that dividing my donations was not prudent, so I sent another $20 to NRA-ILA. Unless you are prepared to register and pay $200 each for your 11+ cap magazines, your AR, etc, you need to join NRA.
I just got off the phone with Dave at the NRA Life Member desk....
1-800-672-3888 option 3
Dave indicated that sponsored members may be upgraded to Life status for approximately 30 more days, at $300 per upgrade.
He also said that recently expired memberships may be renewed at Life status, with a sponsor. He did not qualify "recently" but I got the idea that "recently", will not be rigidly applied. Our 2nd Amendment rights are worth a call to find out of your situation meets the criteria.
As I indicated earlier in this thread, I will sponsor anyone who asks.
I just joined about a week or two ago.
This is why it's important to partner with the NRA, and stay after your elected officials....

So for now, yes I am a member. and the 300 dollar sponsorship lifetime is a great deal, I'd do it in a hard beat, but I'm not in the best of times right now. Pisses me off because with everything going on right now it's all I can do to stop from trying to get another credit card and maxing it out for a membership and an ar-15 stripped lower +ammo. I'm so stoked that during my worst deployment ever I'm more stressed about whats going on in DC than here...
In retrospect, I think my money would have done more good if I had sent it to the NRA-ILA. So I did, then again day before yesterday.
