    dying to kill, do it now! ASAP. And tell all your friends to join, if not for the efforts of the NRA we wouldn't have the rights we enjoy now.

    Im an NRA member. Does any of you belong to the National Association for Gun Rights? I have been thinking about joining but dont know much about them. Given the current situation we need to do all we can to defend our 2nd amendment rights and support the organizations that are fighting for our gun ownership rights.

    NRA just isn't principled enough for me. I'm a member of RMGO and GOA. NRA is definitely the largest but I think they waiver sometimes and endorse sub par politicians.

    I am not a big supporter of RMGO based on some prior dealings I had with them several years ago. I don't agree 100% with anything I belong to, but the NRA is pretty close.

    What did they do? I just signed up because they were more local level.

    About a year ago I heard the stat that something like only 3% of gun owners belong to the NRA.

    Similar to you...I recently joined GOA. I had been on the fence for years, I'm just leery about sending money to any organization and the bigger they are, the more leery I get.

    That said, after the recent happenings, I decided to join, I was already leaning towards GOA and my decision was cemented when I saw Larry Pratt on Piers Morgan's show.

    Wayne LaPierre is just too much of a speech and soundbite guy, too politician-like and I think he'd let the likes of Piers Morgan walk all over him.

    IMO, that's why we have a lot of the problems that we do. I have a lot of respect for the organization and what it does, but he's the face of it and he doesn't give me a warm fuzzy that he's going to convince anybody of anything.

    I think you are wrong. No gun rights organization has the members and the clout of the NRA... PERIOD! Most politicians do not want to get an F grade on voting on gun issues from the NRA. IMHO all the other NATIONAL gun rights groups are just pretenders. I want to donate my $$$ where it does the most good and that definately is the NRA.
