I support the NRA but got tired of their constant mail and phone calls to increase my membership or donate funds. I understand how they work but I like a lot of my friends dropped membership for that reason.

In fact I was listening to a talk radio show the other day and the NRA rep was being interviewed by the host and he told her that was the same reason he dropped his membership but with the current state of our political "leaders" I have been rethinking my stance and will probably re-join

Lifer here, also. It does get tiresome concerning the constant begging, but I have trashcans and am able to hang up the phone. They are doing a good job for us in my opinion and I wish there were lots more members.

For Clinton to cast blame on the USA will forever make us look like the bad guys in the UN and in world opinion. That will be one of the most expensive statements ever made since Neville Chamberlain's "...peace in our time..." speech.

The appeals do not bother me but if they bother you they are easy to stop. From the NRA website:

Q: How can I reduce the amount of mail I receive from the NRA?
A: Simply email us at membership@nrahq.org or dial 800-NRA-3888 and request to be placed on the "Do Not Promote" list. This will significantly reduce the amount of mail you receive without affecting important mailings, magazine service, or your membership renewal.

Please consider renewing your membership. The NRA will be vital to maintaining our Second Amendment rights.

I let my membership lapse after the NRA decided to not follow through on their lawsuit against the City of New Orleans, its Mayor and Chief of Police for illegaly confiscating firearms from law abiding citizens.

If they are unwilling to fight the good fight when the government knowingly misbehaves, how can I trust them to fight for my rights at all? Needless to say, I was extremely disappointed with them.

I am a life member, too. Without the Second Ammendment, we would be driving on the left side of the road. The right to keep and bear arms is designed to protect us, the people, from our government. Be careful our elected representatives do not whittle away this very important right.

What are you talking about?

New Orleans Mayor Finally Admits Illegal Gun Confiscation, Settles With NRA Friday, October 10, 2008

http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?id=4205

After a three-year legal battle over the unconstitutional confiscation of lawfully owned firearms during Hurricane Katrina, this week, the City of New Orleans agreed to settle a lawsuit initiated by NRA. A permanent injunction has been issued against the city, Mayor Ray Nagin, and current Police Chief Warren Riley. The Second Amendment Foundation assisted NRA in the legal battle against Mayor Ray Nagin and the City of New Orleans.
"This is an important victory for the citizens of New Orleans and the Second Amendment," said Wayne LaPierre, NRA's executive vice president. "We fought for three long years in a fundamental legal challenge to assert the inherent self-defense rights for law-abiding citizens, knowing the Constitution would prevail. Today it has prevailed and freedom has won."
Judge Carl J. Barbier presided over the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. Judge Barbier signed the permanent injuncation against the City of New Orleans. The city admitted the firearm confiscations carried out by Nagin and Riley were unconstitutional and illegal.
Under the terms of the injunction, Mayor Ray Nagin, Police Chief Warren Riley, and any agents or employees of the City of New Orleans must, among other things, cease and desist confiscating lawfully-possessed firearms from all citizens; make an aggressive attempt to return any and all firearms which may have been confiscated during the period August 29 to December 31, 2005; post on the City website the procedure for the return of confiscated firearms; and mail notices to all individuals who are identified on the property tags of firearms in the City's possession which were confiscated during the aftermath of Katrina.
"On behalf of the lawful gun owners of New Orleans, NRA is pleased with this outcome," said NRA-ILA Executive director Chris W. Cox. "We thank Judge Barbier for his leadership and constitutional scholarship in presiding over our lawsuit. NRA will continue to aid however we can in the full return of all the firearms confiscated by the City."
