Howdy, It is as simple as this. if you own a firearm, legally, then you should join the NRA. Period. Join any other gun rights organization you want, but cough up the 25 bucks and join. You may not agree with everything the NRA does, but then anyone who believes everything any one or any entity does, short of the almighty himself, well that person is a sheep. If we swell the numbers of the NRA, the power weilded in politics would be enormous. But don't just stop there. Take a kid, or a non shooter shooting. Teach basic proper handling first and foremost. Help out at your local kids hunters safety courses. Be a part of the community. And for all our sakes, even if your a union member, DO NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE WHO IS ANTI GUN! Check their records and vote based on that, not what the lying turd is saying to get elected, or re-elected. Their voting history is the true voice of their soul. If you are being strong armed by your union to vote Lib/dem, tell em okay. and go vote pro gun. This assasin in the east is only the opening act in a long, bitter drawn out legal battle to make all law abiding gun owners criminals. Time to fight now, before the battle gets rolling full steam! JOIN THE NRA, Give a gift membership or two every year and VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
