A single issue group cannot afford to choose who to support based on the overall picture. They certainly cannot afford to affiliate with any one political party

    A choice to support the NRA is a choice to support gun rights through all possible means, even Democrats.
    Thanks for the info on this guy.

    I see a lot of folks who use anything they can to justify not belonging to the NRA. If everybody that has a interest in guns for what ever reason would join, we could stop all this noncense that the left wing wackos come up with. I been in the NRA since back in the 60s and yes they have done a lot of things I didn't care for, but they also done a lot of good. More than any other outfit out there. Nobody has the clout like the NRA in Washington, nobody is even close. Nothing wrong with belonging to other outfits to. I donate some to a few others but more to the NRA than any of the others.

    My stats might be off but 100 million guns, owned by 40 million legally armed Americans. I'm cool with the NRA being a one issue organization. They're the biggest and best at protecting our rights. That fact CANNOT be denied. I have no problems with their solicitations, it costs alot of money to fight federally backed gun-grabbers. If you're not a member, you need to be 'cause out of 40 million, only 10% are members. That fact disturbs me even more.

    What disturbs me even more, is the fact that a local pro-gun group solicited me and I signed up for their emails. Then I got bombarded with anti-NRA emails. I won't give a red cent to them, because we need not be so divisive!

    Needless to say, I unsbscribed. I never appreciated folks who build themselves up by tearing other folks down.
