    I get why you think the guy needs to go. I know first hand what it is like to have an idiot representing you in congress. Nancy Pelosi was my representative years ago when I lived in CA. Not to mention I grew up in Georgia's 4th district, the place dumb enough to elect Cynthia Mckinney. Anyone named "Edwards" is not going to bring up fond associations to the memory of anybody here in NC.

    It probably would be best for the guy to be replaced, but I don't see it as a do or die issue. If he were my representative I might feel differently. I don't think it really matters much at this point. Our country is like a truck heading down a mountain with no brakes. Who is behind the wheel will only affect the severity of the crash that is inevitable. From a gun rights perspective Chet Edwards is as good as money can buy. The NRA is simply choosing not to throw away their purchase.

    Oh I do feel sorry for your past. Pelosi wants to pass bills in order to determine what's in them! What morons the voters are.

    Sometimes I think that truck needs to smash into a brick wall, so we can pick up the pieces and start over :-(

    That was the first thing to come to mind when I saw the tread title. I get 3-4 items a week.

    I wonder how much that costs them/us.

    Lightbulb Tell the NRA you don't want all the junk mail.

    No need to get mail you don't want. The following is found on the NRA web site.

    Q: How can I reduce the amount of mail I receive from the NRA?
    A: Simply email us at membership@nrahq.org or dial 800-NRA-3888 and request to be placed on the "Do Not Promote" list. This will significantly reduce the amount of mail you receive without affecting important mailings, magazine service, or your membership renewal.

    The guys who join for $25 or $35 a year probably have all their money spent on postage and junk mail

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.
