    I just got an e-mail offer to join the new NRA Wine Club, What is next? The NRA fruit of the month or the NRA Quilters Society? I sure wish they would stay on topic!!

    It's all about raising $$$$$$$$$$$$. Besides the NRA isn't selling it , the winery is and is probably paying the NRA a fee. What's the difference. Don't like the mailings just pitch them.

    At one time the NRA used to advertise student loans as a benefit. I called them and they explained it wasn't NRA money being used, just their name for a fee. It's just like their VISA card, it's not the NRA's money, but they get a fee for the card name and useage.

    I just wish the NRA wouldn't keep sending me letters telling me what a great senator we have in Harry Reid and that I should vote to re-elect him in 2010. I guess the dirt of politics is difficult to avoid but I don't exactly feel like sending more money to a group that will use my money to campaign for that piece of work.

    Who besides the NRA is in the forfront of protecting our right to own guns, It sure as hell is not the ATA. Every gun owner needs to wake up and get proactive in this fight.

    The NRA are not the only lobbyists fighting for gun rights. GOA and JPFO also do on a national scale, and they and many others are active at the state level. There is no denying the NRA is the largest, though.

    The NRA is our only speaker to the high and mighty, and they carry a big stick. Anyone that does not belong and support the NRA, that ownes a gun or believe's in the 2nd amendment, is sucking off everyone that does pay their dues.

    Just a simple question to the people that complain about the NRA mailings requesting donations--Would you give any money if they did not send a request??

    I BET NOT!!

    So I believe that you are embarresed because they are asking and you do not send them any money to fight for your "Right To Keep and Bear Arms"

    AM I CLOSE???

    Obvious you don't like wine, but on the other hand I don't like chewing tobacco or cigarettes. I wouldn't bash NRA if they got tobacco companies as sponsors.

    If you don't like the email, delete it. It's easier than tear up paper mail then find your trash can.

    NRA is trying every possible way to fund their fight to protect our 2nd. amendment.

    Wish some one in NRA marketing would consider a discount to new life members who are over 65, just like the ATA does. With the ATA the break even point is 10 years. If you're over 65 the break even point with the NRA is 20 years+.

    The current NRA life membership is $1000.00, thought it was $750.00. I'll continue buying 5 year memberships @$125.00. At 66, I would have to live to 106 to break even.
