    The NRA has been doing a great job, watching out for firearms owners for years.......it's a very large org. and you just cannot please everyone, politically, or otherwise.....Have I been happy with EVERYTHING that they have said or done? No...........but all in all, over the years, no one has fought harder for firearms than the NRA, besides firearms makers. It's what they do. If it weren't for them. we would at best, probably be walking around with .22 cal. derringers, and a bat. Lest not forget the training that they do, all over the country.

    NRA to attend White House meetings on guns - First Read

    Here we go, NRA at the Whitehouse. "The NRA, however, is a potential major stumbling block to major legislation given its sway on Capitol Hill. And it has dug in after Newtown, continuing to be a staunch opponent of any further restrictive gun measures". So reasoning dictates, Biden and his team including the president are looking for gun control legislation to ban semi-automatic rifles and high capacity magazines at the very least. Once you lose a right it's very hard if not impossible to get back. They blame the guns and not the very sick minority in our society. No guns, no problems is their socialist motto, whats good for the few is good for the law abiding masses. As Charlton Heston stated: "From my cold dead hands" is my motto.

    Pardon me for thinking it's not worth sacrificing the First Amendment to save the Second. I'm not interested in providing funds to an organization blaming free speech any more than I am to one blaming guns for violent crime. The "you're with us or against us" attitude I repeatedly see out of NRA members like you is not particularly compelling, either.

    Then you're against us is all right by me, and from Kentucky no less? If you don't have the second then you won't have the first.

    I think all gun owners need the N.R.A., I know of no other organization that does as much for us as they do To make my point I would quote Benjamin Franklin ," we must all hang together or we will all hang separately".

    Who else do we have to protect our CIVIL RIGHTS?

    To be honest, I am with you on this. IMO, you can not pick and choose the amendments you like. The Constitution is the law of the land. Period.

    As for being a member. Yes I am. They have had our back for many years, and I do not see them stopping. I hope they continue to put foot to ass for the cause.

    Have been a member for 40 years. With our current bosses in DC we should all belong. We need each other now more than ever.

    I am a member. they are a great organization and their hard work keeps the extreme anti gun lobbies at bay.

    the nra provides very good services and is great for information on gun safety and gun laws.

    and they will only get stronger with all these new gun owners across the country.

    The Second Amendment refers to "the right of the people..." That right already exists. The Second Amendment grants no right, only enumerates one that is inalienable.

    with all that is happening, at this point it would be a good idea to join and show support to the NRA

    I fully support the NRA, just as a college kid, paying their membership doesn't work for me right now, eventually I see myself becoming a part of it.
    Well, technically you don't "support" the NRA except in believing in their cause. The bad news is that the Constitution isn't necessarily protecting the 2nd amendment...look at what NY has done. So, in effect, you are taking benefit from what the NRA does, but not actually paying for it...sort of like welfare for gun owners that "aren't paying their fair share". Not slamming you by any means. In fact, I just joined the NRA over the weekend at a gun show for $25 for the year. Even got an embroidered hat. Not that I need another baseball cap.

    I am a new guy here so hello to all, I just joined the NRA yesterday took the 3yr membership. I reside in Jersey which is a tough state for almost everything. Just got permit for 3rd gun sig 226 and now the NCIS check is holding everything up.
    Stupid system get approved from State police and FBI and now another 'instant ck". What next to slow process. Oh well I sit and wait patiently in the meantime no one has any ammo left on their shelves to buy for the gun.

    I don't own a gun or even a license to get one yet but I joined for 2 years just to support. I feel like this 2nd amendment issue needs more help. I read in the economist today that since this whole political issue started NRA got over 250,000 new members in less than a month!

    Belonging to the NRA is more about believing in a cause and standing up for it . Power in numbers . Standing on the sidelines gives you no voice in the matter .

    I'll make a deal with you: Join the NRA, and I'll send you a check that'll pay you back for your expenditure. All you need do is send me a Xerox copy of your membership card.
    If you are interested, PM me and we'll exchange addresses.

    BTW do they still have the $300 life member program? I want to upgrade but a $1000 is a little too much for me at the moment.
