Years ago, the City of Omaha crafted what was going
to be among the
toughest gun restrictions in the country. Basically, you could have
in your home, but once you brought it outside into public, even on
front porch, without it being locked up in a case apart from the
ammunition, you went to jail. The NRA came down and helped defeat
Round 2 began a few months later, with the city having revised its
making anyone who wished to carry a gun obtain a permit, after having
jumped through hoops like a background check, being fingerprinted
photographed, paying fees, carrying the card, etc. It was to be good
two years, at which time you'd have to go through some of the steps
We called the NRA for help, expecting them to send someone to help
this, but no one came. Why? Because THEY HELPED THE CITY WRITE THE
Several of us fighting the bill canceled our memberships on the spot.
NRA: the nation's largest gun control organization.
Ron Paul: America's last chance?
Excellent reply to the NRA. Their actions as of late
have had me very concerned as well and is the reason I haven't renewed
my membership with them. Thanks for the info.
As always, I agree w/you.I am an NRA Patron Member.
In the past,
I've written the NRA @ these cave-ins. Never got a good answer back
got answer). Oh yeah, the NRA is very good at drafting these eMails
members. Sound really clear & OK, but it's not always the case
as you well
know, & I get clobbered by gun owners that want to know why these
happen. The answer is that the NRA considers us radical
right(?) firearms owners. Well; OK, I suppose I am in the radical
right & I
admit it. What really irks me is a lot of people I run into (frequently
shows!) is that some are not members of ANY pro-gun organization!!!
reckon they don't want to part w/a few $ to join one. Ridiculous!
us to do all the fighting for them at our expense. If pressured too
usual escape is that were it not for the NRA, we would not be here
discussing this today; which is true, but I get tired of using that
Keep up the good fight guys!
I am a member of the NRA. I am also a member of jpfo
for the same reasons. It has been "confusing" me that the
NRA has supported a number of conflicting issues. I wrote them a letter
clarifying my reasons as to why they have lost support. I haven't
heard from them yet. It is likely I will close my membership and continue
to support organizations that know the consequences of compromise.
Continuing to support the NRA because they are supposedly
the biggest 'advocate' of gun rights is like supporting Hitler because
he was supposedly a great environmentalist.
Oregon State Shooting Association is looking into forming a PAC to
combat the NRA's sellout and to UNQUESTIONINGLY support the Second
BTW, it is the same crew (LaPierre and Cox) that gave us the 1994
AW ban and
told us it was the best we could hope for. They then milked it for
million dues-paying members. I remember those bastards like it was
yesterday...... If I didn't need to belong for competition reasons,
drop my NRA life membership in a heartbeat.
Methinks they are too close to the problem. They won't get invited
good DC parties if they act like you guys (and GOA).
I agree the NRA is not representing my second amendment freedom's.
As of last week I did not renew my NRA membership. I now will be supporting
JPFO, and the Virginia Gunowners Coalition. I am fed up with the NRA.
Well, this is what you can expect from an organization that supported
the re-election of Bush in 2004.
BTW, on Alternet on Monday there was an article about guns. Alternet
is on the left, as you know, and as you might expect the article was
full of psycho-babble and anti-gun rhetoric.
I wrote a reply, pulling out all stops.
Basically I said that if you are going to have any gun laws whatsoever
then you have a situation where there are 2 classes of people, the
government officials who are better than everyone else and the peons
who do as they are told.
I had no time to read other comments, but there were a lot of pro-gun
ones, so apparently Alternet has a good libertarian readership.
Having lived in the Wash.D.C.metro area, south of the Potomac, for
53 years it is my conclusion that "Liberal America" has
made a decided effort to infiltrate all aspects of political life
the United States. While I have not seen a written plan for this undermining
of American values I have seen the actions that lead me to believe
that the "Liberals"intend to conquer from within. The current
stance of the N.R.A.. People of a liberal history running on Republican
tickets as "Centrist" candidates. Political Consultants
playing both sides of the net. Etc. Washington D.C. creates insidious
people by association. All of the Jackels are here because of the
easy prey "MONEY & POWER". These fiends do not care
who or what they represent or sell out as long as they achieve their
goal. 537 hangings for treason would go a long way toward fixing the
American Government and their associates.
I have not renewed my membership to the NRA as a result of their
the latest Bill.
Alan Korwin supports concealed carry permits. He thinks it's OK to
convert a right into a government-issued privilege that requires a
fee. He even fought for that in Arizona!
As for the other NRA members . . . what would they do if Second Amendment
rights were acknowledged? They'd have to disband and stop collecting
dues from suckers. Oh no!
The NRA has become more important than the principle. Of course.
The obvios answer to the last question is: If there is any, they
are not making the decisions.
Thanks for the good work you guys do. The NRA called me the other
day asking for a donation to stop the gun-grabbers. I told them to
call me back when they're no longer among them. I've let my JPFO membership
lapse, apparently, so my check will be in the mail in the next day
or two, G-D willing.
