    Hope this doesn't offend The Boss.

    If considering a donation to an organization to support 2A, which organization
    is likely to have the strongest impact on the 2020 elections ?


    Please think about results, rather than likes or dislikes of any organization.

    Looking for the best probability of success in supporting 2A.

    Thanks for any consideration.

    NRA. Anything else is like supporting bill weld for president. You may think hes got some good ideas but has zero chance of affecting the outcome

    I agree but it's really frustrating to here how there pissing our money away on stuff other than bribing politicians. I mean that's what I give them money for! Mike

    Yeah I agree with Dusty as far as 2020 election impact.
    But until the NRA cleans out their own swamp, not a dime from me.

    I agree @mike a. I am debating a life membership but it sure is hard considering how they are doing business.

    I do 5 year stints with the NRA and give a little in between. It’s far from perfect, but it’s the best thing we’ve got going for us right now.

    Forgot to mention that the wife, both dogs, and even the cat have been known to join depending on political climate......lol. Right now it’s just me, but but that could easily change.

    Nra- for reasons stated above

    annually

    Cause they need it
    And 1 less box of ammo a year is a small price to pay. (About the cost of the nra dues)

    Create a fund in your local club that contributes to the local county sheriff.

    This would probably have more real impact than anything else.

    I dropped out of the NRA.
    The NRA mostly represents a big piggy bank for politicians to drain once in a while.
    You give NRA money, they take a share and bribe politicians with the rest. This, helping those politicians, and motivating them to introduce new gun laws again, when they want our money again.

    How are you gonna get them politicians off that welfare?
    Cut the money. They'll chase another source.

    NRA is your choice, and please don't look at the negatives that are at the forefront right now. This will get straightened out. There isn't any other outfit that has their connections and that is what we need.
    I too am pissed off to hear about the wasted money and I let my states representative know it. Just like working with congress, write the NRA a letter and let them know what your thinking. I believe that we as the little guys can affect change in the NRA. It's our organization not theirs. I'm guilty of just sending in 25 bucks and thinking all is well. I think that contributed a lot to the current situation, imagine that times 5 million members! We all need to get involved. Write letters, go to rallies, even just wearing your NRA hat helps. There's a very important reason for the second amendment and it doesn't have diddly to do with comps or hunting. It's there to keep the gov't in check, the common mans defense against tyranny and the founding fathers knew this all to well.
    So get involved it's our NRA but, more importantly it is our United States of America.

    God Bless, and Live Free!

    One question for you guys pissing and moaning about the NRA, have you actually contacted the NRA, email/letter/both, and made your feelings known or are you just pissing and moaning?
    In case you are curious, the answer is yes!

    The answer is yes, and I still don’t have my machine guns, SBRs, or suppressors. I also want to keep my “high capacity magazines” and “weapons of war” as well.

    That cool 6Dasher with the sick paint job and nightforce? Why that’s a sniper rifle and why on God’s green earth would anyone possibly need that?!

    Email/write them again, do a face to face with your NRA state rep. Put the heat on them, but as it stands, the NRA is still the big dog.
    We throw in the towel and we lose.

    I admit the NRA is far from perfect but when it comes down to it they are the best friend we have..they are the lobby with the most clout and have the ear of a lot of people. Every gun owner should be a member.if not for them we would have been over run by the antis long ago. Hold your nose and send them a check.
