    If everyone jumped ship and went to GOA, we wouldn’t have this NRA problem.

    Same goes with our politicians, if everyone quit settling we could clean house and get new blood in.

    But nope...this is how we’ve always done it.

    Sharing my thoughts before this thread gets closed and or deleted.

    I thought they were gone. Haven't heard about them in probably 20 years. Think I still have one of their shirts.
    Will look them up.

    Spread your contributions around:

    1) NRA
    2) NAGR (National Association for Gun Rights)
    3) GOA (Gun Owners of America)

    They are all reputed to be fighting for the same thing: our Second Amendment Rights!

    "Cognitive Dissonance" is when deep down a person KNOWS the truth, but doesn't want to face it because it's too painful.

    Enlightening thread. After much self reflection, I have concluded that at this moment, lifetime would send a message of condonation of their current practices-a message I don’t care to send.

    At the same time, as my Dad always said, “don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater.” Not to support NRA at all would be doing just that.

    I’m already stuck with lifetime. That’s why I’m annoyed at the NRA. Didn’t realize my $650 was going toward suits and losing rights.

    Guys on other forums I’m on are already talking about “what we can compromise” to make sure the government doesn’t take too many rights. No compromise, but that’s what happens when the NRA goes to the negotiating table.

    What I think Trump is going for with the background checks, is that he will want Reciprocity in all states for concealed carry! And I would go for that.

    I send some $ to the NRA now & then but had not rejoined to keep them from blowing up my mailbox. I DID join this year as a requirement to belong to a gun club that has good benches and a good SR BR bunch shooting there.......The mailbox is under assault once again...o_O

    Regards

    The NRA also supports local gun clubs like ours here in Lincoln with grants to help our range and other small clubs, so it's also bottom up not just top down that your contributions go to.

    I don't have a lot of money to throw at this but I'll make a small extra donation to the
    NRA and possibly other 2A organizations.

    My logic on this is that losing this battle will be very costly in comparison to the amount
    I'd donate. This whole situation just scares the hell out of me and maybe the NRA has
    the most clout.

    I find it interesting that people here are all bent up because of an article in that bastion of pro-2A news - the NY Times and by the 2A friendly folks at CNN et al (and yes, I'm including Fox in that). All of this because some supposed 'dirt' was thrown out there, put together to sound the worst it could possibly sound just because a group tried to keep their cash cow sending them milk (cash cow aka Ackermann-McQueen).
    Is there smoke? probably. Is there fire? maybe but, that's what the courts are all suppose to be for. Don't want to give $$ to the NRA? That's your prerogative. But when did the NY Times and all the others suddenly start telling the truth about something they have consistently tried to destroy (aka the 2nd Amendment)? And why would you NOW start to believe every thing they print AS LONG AS IT IS ANTI-NRA?

    Could care less about what cancer news network says or any news for that matter. If anything needs regulation they do.

    Also, who cares how much the 67 boards members are getting paid?

    This is what I care about...the NRA supported the following bills to “soften” the blow on firearm owners.

    1934 machine gun ban

    1967 Mulford act

    1968 gun control act

    1986 Hughes amendment

    Supports the NICS

    “Approved” of trumps bump-stock ban and the unconstitutional way they were made illegal.

    And currently at the negotiating table with our beloved politicians figuring what we, firearm owners, can do without to protect the rest of 2A.

    Nope...they aren’t on my team, or anyone who gives a damn about firearms. The GOA was formed because the current leaders thought the NRA was too soft!

    Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a gun rightsorganization in the United States with over two million members.[4] It makes efforts to differentiate itself from the larger National Rifle Association (NRA) and has publicly criticized the NRA on multiple occasions for what it considers to be compromising on gun rights.

    @Bbear and anyone else reading my posts. Please don’t read it as me Taking it personally or being an ass. I can’t convey tone through the interwebs. I respect everyone’s opinions and beliefs. These are just my viewpoints.

    I’m rereading my posts, and I sound like a jerk. I don’t mean to be. We all have the same endstate, just different ways of achieving it.
