just renewed my membership..every winter I send them $, and it doesn't break the bank..just 1 of my ways to fight the gungrabbers..The NRA may not be what it once was, but think how the anti-gunners will taught a victory if something happens to them! I don't want to see that happen..

Gun grabbers hate the NRA. While I am not happy with them for several reasons I did up my membership level to help fight gun grabbers.

Right now there is no other organization with as much attention and power as the NRA. I plan to join the GOA and 2A ogranizations. Fight on multiple fronts.

Let's hope Ginsberg drops dead real soon.

I will continue to maintain my associate membership. I won't upgrade it, I don't want their hats, totes, magazines or anything else from them, and if they want my $10/yr to go further they can take everyone who makes more than six figures in their organization and pay them a reasonable salary.

But it will be like teaching a pig to sing, a waste of your time, and you'll only succeed in anoying the pig.

What is so annoying about the NRA and a lot of other places that rely on donations is the amount of begging they do.

I gave money to Memorial Sloan Kettering for cancer research. The spent the next year bombarding my mail box with requests for money, stocker, calendars, notepads, pens and other trinkets. My $50 was used to beg me for more money. After that I refuse to donate to them. How about after 6 months send a notice saying "it has been 6 months can you spare some more?". Don't send me junk and don't spam me. The NRA is doing the same. I had to request them to stop sending requests. Even then I still get stuff.

FWIW since I colt-turkey just stopped renewing my membership (not called in to cancel) they stopped sending anything to me, without even requesting it. one of the biggest benefits to quitting IMO.

My NRA membership expires at the end of May.  I haven't completely decided to not renew, but I'm gettng close.

Yesterday I received my first "FINAL NOTICE" regarding renewing my membership.  I wonder how many "final" notices I should expect to receive.


About five or six from my experience, then if you fail to renew they go completely cold on you in both snail mail and email. the joyful silence of them not filling my mailbox/inbox is worth quitting all on its own.

I just renewed.  Waiting on the knife.

If the NRA is an irritant to Libtards, it's worth the few bucks.

I never expected them to get anything done in Commieticut, this state is toast.  Our only hope is that SCOTUS finally sets the record straight.

Divide and conquer, divide and conquer.

Why care who does what when we end up doing it to ourselves?
