    Angry Please Join the NRA. Discount Membership!

    Howdy,
    I listen alot to Tom Gresham's gun talk radio show.. www.guntalk.com and he has a link set up on his site that allows visitors to click on and sign up for the a one year membership to the NRA at a discounted rate of $25.00 instead of the $35.00.

    He also has a set up so you can join his "Truth squad" and he will e-mail you information ever so often informing you of happenings in the gun world.

    He employed a "No Shrug Policy" which he talks about on his show where a lie that is not challenged becomes the truth and when we hear or see things that need to be addressed concerning our 2nd Amendment rights, we need to get on board and challenge it.

    Well all that being said, I am trying to do just that. So I contacted the NRA the other day and got set up as a recruiter and have a link on my website as well so you can join the NRA at a reduced rate. www.levergunleather.com

    I also upgraded my membership to life member at the same time.

    So I encourage all of you to be a member of the NRA and help them to fight for our second amendment rights. Mr. Obama plans to take our guns and ammo from us and we need as many members in the NRA as possible. Don't take my word for it, click on Obama's website and scroll down to "Crime and Law enforcement" and read for yourself. http://origin.barackobama.com/issues...aw-enforcement

    Here is what he says right off of his exsisting website!

    Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets.

    Bump, but I'll add that with the current exchange rate, plus the $10.00 extra postage for foreign subs, for expats in Britain the cost is £23.17. And a choice of magazines. (very cool idea imo)

    I hope to be able to join soon. There aren't too many ways of supporting the RBKA if you live abroad but hopefully being a number will help.

    I'm already a life member ... but I went ahead and bought two gift memberships (one for my wife's dad, and the other for her brother)

    I have heard that at last count, there are roughly 80 million gun owners.
    There are 3 1/2 million NRA members ....
    however, when asked, 12 million people say they are members of the NRA. That means that either they want to be associated, but have yet to cough up the 35.00 (25.00 for right now) or they were members and their membership lapsed and they aren't aware.

    ***************************************************

    What kind of statement would it make if there were 3.5 million members on November 4th when the socialist was elected .... and the membership doubled to over 7 million before January 20th when he actually get to start messing up the country?

    I would love to see it happen.

    I am also an NRA certified instuctor and I recommend membership to every student.

    Bought two two year gift memberships for two of the kids that enjoy shooting.

    It started out as a "joke" for my Chicago school teaching daughter. Now she and her fireman husband have started shifting their POV on a lot of issues. The magazine make them think about another side of the issue.

    joined 10 days ago after podcasting Tom gresham for 3 days. He is right.. the NRA might not be perfect, and you might disagree with some of their policy, but they are the "heaviest" around to put pressure on politicians !

    Im not in the USA, but I support you guys ! keep up the fight
    Swiss gun collector and shooter.. and proud of it !
    Geneva is not about conventions. It's where I live ;)

    Life member and paid for one for my son.

    In the past when my son has brought his friends to the club for a day of shooting, they have all kicked in for ammo. Next time, I think I'll just pay for the ammo but ask them to join the NRA.

    More members means more clout.

    I might re-join, having let mine lapse. But:

    - The NRA constantly sends email; I'm sure (have even glanced at solutions mentioned here in THR, though not spent the mental energy to put them in place) that there's a way out of that. Or I could filter more / harder. But it's an annoyance, just the same.

    - the NRA constantly sends (informative, non-begging or goading) snail mail; again, I'm sure there are people to talk to / buttons to click to reduce the volume, but it's more than I want from them.

    - the NRA solicits *more* money more frequently than NPR.

    I'm glad that there's an old, seemingly mostly-good organization fighting for gun rights. I don't like some of their decisions, I don't like the way they too often fall right into (and encourage) the "hunting and heritage" Norman Rockwell picture of gun owners, and I don't like the constant nagging.

    So it tends to come down for me 49.9 / 50.1 ...

    p.s. What about the old "I'm the NRA" ads? Has that series been revived since I last noticed them in the early / mid-80s?

    Timothy,

    I urge you to reconsider.

    Tom Gresham said it best on his program .....

    If you aren't involved - You're invisible!

    So - if you aren't a member of an organization that sends people to DC to lobby on behalf of gun owners, or you (at the very least) don't contact your two senators, and your Representative (and the Governor of your State along with your State Legislators) .......

    If you don't do those things, you might as well not be a gun owner at all - because none of the politicians at the State and Federal level are 'hearing' your voice.

    I would like to see that happen too, but remember, the NRA and all EVC `s were trying very hard to double membership before the election. Not many of those 80 million gun owners joined.
    I am appalled at that figure. If there are really 80 million people that really believe in protecting the 2A and gun rights, the current President-elect would not have gotten elected. Unless most of those people believed in his lies about gun rights.

    Well, I am making a decision this Christmas to give out Associate Memberships, they are something like 10 bucks a person and there's no magazine and limited mail. However, it's something.
    Move along move along. Nothing to see here.

    I'm just finishing "Unintended Consequences". If the NRA or NRA-ILA were really sharp, they'd buy the copyrights to the book and have it printed cheaply or put up in electronic form and send it to every member instead of sending a cap or a knife as a membership renewal bonus. That book would go farther to get members to send further donations or become more active than anything else they could do.

    P.S., I'm an NRA member; not lifetime yet, but I'm ahead a few years.

    The $25/yr memberships can be found anywhere. For instance, there's a stack of cards at the local gunshop. What I would like to know is if there are any deals on Life Memberships? I could care less about the free stuff (except the mags) - keep the jacket, hat, and pin and give me a Life Membership for $500 and I'd jump on that in a second.

    You're not supposed to join the NRA solely to get a membership card - you're supposed to join because you believe in the cause and feel compelled to contribute financially. Becoming a "Life Member" is a big deal, primarily because it costs a lot. When you shell out $1,000 to an advocacy group, you're making a strong statement of your beliefs. Cut that amount in half, and the prestige of being a "Life Member" is diminished.

    Just my 2¢. I'm not a member yet, but I intend to become one.

    I am an NRA Life Member, paying on the installment plan--$100 per year.
    Also a TSRA Annual member, and as soon as my NRA Life Membership is paid up, I'll be working on Life Membership with TSRA.
    After that, maybe GOA...

    A year with NRA/TSRA is about one box of factory ammo. If you can not/will not spring for that, you are not really serious about the 2A.
