It said something about suing a state that enacted that law.

Sending out flyers saying, "We will not compromise!"?

Lugnut, its the same mentality that makes them vote third party. They feel like rebels with all the right causes, but in the end it does nothing to help keep gun rights. Sometimes you have to back a "less than perfect" solution because its far and away better than the alternatives. You can back someone who has a chance of helping or throw away your money/vote so you can get on your high horse say "I told you so." When whoever everyone else backed doesn't prove to be perfect. (Even though we all knew they weren't in the first place.)

My neighbor, like me, doesn't want to give an inch on any gun legislation, seeing how we think alike I'm going to give him $20 to advocate for that. Now I've done my part I can cling to my convictions.LOL

There are a lot more than two who can see the NRA for what it is. That is why at least half their "what your supposed to think and send us money" letters talk about gun owners who refuse to join.

Still don't know why Finn keeps thinking the NRA has been compromising away our rights to own a firearm. Wish he'd offer some factual information.

The very same reason I dropped my membership, but I rejoined this week.

There are more than three-hundred-million gun owners in America. Five million are members of the NRA. There are a lot of freeloaders who have come up with a lot of reasons not to support the number one defender of your 2A rights.

If any of you can show be a better alternative I'll support it in a heartbeat.

A phone call will stop the annoying mailings. I haven't received them for years.

We now we go back to the 'freeloader' recruitment tactics.

I'm not trying to recruit anybody. My freeloader comments were directed at...well...the freeloaders.

Imagine the power the NRA or any other pro-gun group would have if the freeloaders would get off their butts and quit letting a small percentage of us pull their weight.

If the group doesn't support your views on gun ownership- it is better off for the group and the individual to not send $ to that group, especially if you care to move policy to a more pro gun stance than that group supported and wrote legislation for. The NRA doesn't cut the mustard for me and I don't fear saying that. If you agree- quit sending them money and they will stop being the biggest political palm greasers and another group with stronger conviction can move to the
chief-of-palm-greasers position.

On the flip side if the NRA had say 100 million members, they would not have to compromise.

That may be true, but their history would still be a 500 pound gorilla in the room.

I took the option of being a regular donor over a membership, I would rather have them use the money for better things than a magazine subscription and the little things.
