    Been an NRA since I was 17 (almost 40 years); never regretted joining. I recommend every gun owner and/or those who believe in their constitutional rights should join. Look for low-life methods (guise) of eating away at your gun rights such as banning lead (since it's a hazardous material, so they say), hign gun taxes, inscription of bullets when fired, and so on. Would the Supreme Court ever ruled on the Heller case without the NRA? Even though you've heard the phase alot these days, the NRA is too big to fail. They're big because of it's members. You'll see how important the NRA will be these next 4 years. Eric Holder, Obama's appointed Attn'y General is no friend of gun owners and I'm sure no friend of the NRA. That's one reason to join.

    I have been a member of NRA since 1954 and a Life Member since 1976!

    We MUST support the NRA as our future as Gun Owners depends on the efforts of the NRA.

    Encourage others to join--send a contribution when you can!

    I am a devout member of the NRA and would join any other organization that I felt supported our constitutional rights with the vehemence that the NRA does. I bought my conservative tree hugging animal rights advocate Sister-In Law a membership 3 yrs. ago and she loved it though she has never fired a gun in her life. The fact is she is a very pragmatic woman who believes strongly in the constitution and clings to the individual rights that it guarantees. She now is an independent NRA member who insists on paying her own dues. My investment payed off in a new member, perhaps others who read this might find others such as I did and enlist their support. I do not believe the NRA is all about guns but about freedom.

    The ONLY thing I don't like about the NRA is that they don't have a magazine for "Sport" shooters i.e TRAP. Only Hunter and Rifleman....I would have given LOT's more if they were to consider calling US the NFA.......National Firearms Association. I will live with and support the NRA.....but I'm not a rifle owner or a hunter.........simply a TRAPSHOOTER, who believes in the 2nd amendment. I'm 58 and I used to hunt, but, with TIME.....I've grown a "soft" side that couldn't KILL a fly (well, that's putting it lightly). I could not KILL a DEER .......but if an intruder came into my house.......I wouldn't have second thoughs.....THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS...and protect FAMILY/SELF.

    Just got this in my email...



    **** Alert *** Alert *** Alert ****

    Dear Fellow NRA Member,

    In the next few days, you'll receive your new NRA membership card.

    The moment you receive it, I urge you to validate your new membership card as soon as possible. More than ever, we need you to stand with NRA and fight to save our Second Amendment freedoms.


    Because Barack Obama's campaign promise not to take away our guns is a lie.

    He's not even in office, yet he's fired the opening salvos in a war against the future of the Second Amendment, our hunting and shooting traditions, and YOU.

    Obama's FIRST attack on YOU: Appointing Illinois Congressman Rahm Emanuel to be White House Chief of Staff. In Congress, Emanuel earned an "F" rating from NRA, and while working in the Clinton Administration, he was known as the "point man on gun control." He is an avowed enemy of the Second Amendment and will wield enormous power in the battle for the future of our firearm freedoms.

    Obama's SECOND attack on YOU: If Hillary Clinton is confirmed as Secretary of State, she'll rip the Second Amendment right out of the Bill of Rights. She'll be our nation's top diplomat with the power to determine whether the United Nations will pass, and Obama will sign, a global gun ban treaty that will surrender our Second Amendment rights and our national sovereignty.

    Obama's THIRD attack on YOU: Nominating ex-Senator and former Majority Leader Tom Daschle-an avowed enemy of NRA-to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. NRA was responsible for defeating Daschle when he ran in South Dakota for re-election to the Senate. If Daschle is confirmed, he could hold the ultimate power to declare guns a "public health menace" and regulate away our essential liberties.

    Obama's FOURTH attack on YOU: Nominating Eric Holder to be Attorney General. As former Assistant Attorney General, Holder was a key architect and vocal advocate for the Clinton era's sweeping gun ban agenda. He supported national handgun licensing, mandatory trigger locks, and ending gun shows as we know them.

    Just recently, Holder opposed the District of Columbia's Heller decision that declared the Second Amendment an individual right. Holder also called for reviving the Clinton gun bans and, as Attorney General, would fight in court to prevent the landmark Heller decision from being made applicable to state and local governments.

    Worst of all, if Holder is confirmed as the nation's top law-enforcement officer, he would control BATFE and wield enormous power to harass gun owners and sue America's arms makers out of existence.

    Obama's FIFTH attack on YOU: In the job application for the Obama Administration, he made it clear that gun owners are second-class citizens and told 80 million gun owners not to even bother applying for a job. In the "White House Personnel Data Questionnaire" he asked:

    "Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has
    been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage."

    This chilling notice to gun owners-that they are not welcome to serve in his Administration-shows the deep hostility for Americans' Second Amendment Freedoms that Obama and his Administration have in their hearts.

    On its face, that question endorses gun registration-a mandate in only five states in our nation-and buys into the anti-gun premise that firearms are inherently dangerous and gun owners are prone to misusing them.

    That's an outrageous mindset, especially for the President-elect whose sworn duty will be to uphold the U.S. Constitution, including our right to keep and bear arms.

    Obama CLEARLY wants to make gun registration the law of the land.

    First for employees under his control...AND THEN FOR YOU.

    Working with a Congress dominated by gun haters like Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, John Conyers, Henry Waxman, and Charles Schumer!!!

    Rubbing salt in gun owner wounds is the Brady Campaign, which just issued a completely bogus poll claiming that two-thirds of the Americans-including 60% of all gun owners-favor gun registration, licensing of firearm owners, and other sweeping restrictions on our firearm freedoms!


    Add it all up and you have the potential for a Second Amendment disaster that's unlike any other NRA members have ever battled.

    That's why we need the strongest possible commitment from EVERY NRA member, starting today. That's why I'm hoping you'll validate your new NRA membership card the moment you receive it.

    Because our greatest strength is you.

    Only by working with you can NRA hold the line against these threats from every quarter. We are the one force that has the strength to keep Americans free and our rights intact for future generations. With you at our side, we will fight and we will prevail against all odds.

    Thank you for your loyalty to NRA and the cause of Freedom.
