    Hi,
    IF every Gun Owner in America, joined a Pro 2A Organization, we would OWN Washington.

    The time to wait for the next guy to act is over, the fight is NOW!

    Your either in it or you ain't, instead of buying another box of ammo you will never use...

    Take the money and join the fight!!!

    I’ve supported the NRA since the early 70’s and give financial support that is greater than the value of more than one lifetime membership but I, like most of you, knew something was rotten in Denmark long before today’s announcement.

    Joined GOA and glad I did. Until the NRA board does something about WLP nothing will change.

    QFT. However, Wayne has too much clout. Look at what happened when some directors called for his resignation, a bunch of sudden resignations happened.

    Wayne should have been replaced fifteen or twenty years ago. Keeping someone as the head of a non-profit for as long as he's been there is just a recipe for disaster. I've seen it in small non-profits that like scout troops and churches. After a while people can lose sight of the fact the money is for the mission of the organization and start thinking "well . . . the group has money, they can pick up lunch and my $25,000 suit." It's bad enough when volunteers do it because they feel that they're putting a ton of time* but when someone who is making is paid $100,000 a month by an organization, even thinking about dipping into the treasury is vile.

    *When I was involved with BSA I had seven or eight meetings a month which took about three hours each, a couple weekend excursions a month, and a ton of hours in my home doing paperwork. I paid for my own travel, food, uniforms, and gear. My paycheck came in the form of good memories and thanks from the kids.

    NRA has never been perfect-- looks like it is less perfect now than before-- but to abandon NRA now is to leave our rights unprotected and sooo easy to sweep aside.

    This may help more than hurt...

    Ari Fleischer, the former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, cast the lawsuit as “one of the dumbest, biggest mistakes an attorney general or anybody can make in an election year.”

    I came across this very informative You Tube video of a fellow who is Pro 2A here in Florida.
    He has other great videos as well like holster fabrication with Sam Andrews of Andrews Custom Leather and Battleline Tactical.

    Not saying to abandon NRA but there needs to be an accounting. The people at the top, the EMPLOYEES, have been allowed to mismanage OUR money.

    I also belong to a Smith & Wesson forum and just got a temp ban because I dared to make negative comments about Wayne LaPierre. The forum has rules against NRA bashing and well founded criticism of Wayne and other higher up is classified as bashing.

    I had my post deleted and all responses to it were deleted as well. I then had a discussion by PM with the mod who didn't like my comments that people who bury their head in the sand allowed the situation to fester. So he banned me for three days. I'll probably get banned for life.

    All this DA needs do is run out our money on defense & cause a rift in the membership.
    Divide & Conquer the leftest know how well it works on the right.

    As A life member I will stay with the NRA & help change those who are not working
    for the members.

    Any gun forum should be embarrassed to start infringing on 1st Amendment rights and an open dialogue about anything

    F$%^ the nra!!! My money goes to the GOA

    The nra should have been disbanded years ago for not supporting our Rights 100% vs letting some laws get by without a fight

    Hi,
    I was banned on a Gun Political Forum for telling the truth.

    All of these Gun Forums, are not all owned and operated, by a Conservative and the Mods, do as they are told!

    Just sayin, not surprised, and a Gun Owner is not always a Trump Supporting Conservative!

    I would think that bashing would be comments like "NRA is a terrorist organization" but only my wife would view valid criticism as "bashing" ("This is spicier than usual." "Oh, you hate everything that I do!!").

    Oh well, his forum so it's his rules.

    Doesn't matter, he has the hierarchy packed so you can't get rid of him. I've told the NRA I won't send a dime till he's gone.
