Really? Lmao! You still think everyone takes your word as fact?
I heard it put best by a Democrat politician from Louisiana. "We don't want to infringe your second amendment rights, we just want to limit them a little."
Ironically, infringe is defined as: to limit or undermine.

Wow! You deduced all that from one post?
Why don't you clarify your qualifications to make such a deduction? Crystal ball? Palm reading? Psychic? Simply FOS?
Fight on the side of tyrannical government. You will find out you are wrong. Words mean nothing. Put your life where your mouth is.

Interesting take. I can't say I disagree.
Don't get me wrong, the NRA has done battle to preserve the Second Amendment. But, it occurred to me long ago if the NRA outright wins, they have thousands of employees that will be out of a job. It seems to me, the NRA wants to be just successful enough to keep the debate going.
I have nothing against NRA members. But, truthfully, gun owners simply need to band together and be vocal prior to being forceful.

if the 70 million gunowners who AINT in the NRA would stand up for our rights, instead of riding FREE on the 4 million of us who PAY to maintain what little freedom we have left, there would BE no antigun politicians. they would not DARE upset that much of the electorate.

Agreed. They have gone to bat in the lobby platform. However, again, without them, I feel we would be years ahead, and may have avoided Obama all together.

Again, generalization. What about the % of that 70 million that belong to other pro gun organizations? Gun Owners Of America...
We all want the same thing. And, yes, when the time comes, we will stand together! Organizations are great and at the same time restrictive. Do you think the NRA is going to say," the time is here and now, take up arms!"? Hell no! Their limit is lobbying congress.
There will come a time when you can't hide behind lobbying organizations. What will YOU do then?
I know what I will do. I know what the majority of gun owners, despite organization memberships, will do. What will you do? Are you willing to be the next liberal media news victim? Waco? Ruby Ridge? Separated, we are statistics. Together, we are the restoring majority.
Are you willing to walk the walk to back talking the talk?
I am!
I'm in no way saying you are wrong for contributing to the NRA. I AM saying you ARE wrong for putting all your eggs in one basket. Self responsibility and self reliance and teaching it to your family trumps lobbying organization membership. What's your back up plan?

Are you a horse? Please ask your trainer to remove your blinders.

Read the Feinstein Bill! How blind can you be?

The Second Amendment is plain and simple English Language. I understand the dumbed down education implemented in this country for quite some time. But if you understand punctuation at all, there is NO WAY you can misconstrue the wording of the most important amendment in the Bill Of Rights!
What are you reading?

Come on! Wake up! If you truly support the Second Amendment, you realize it is up to you and the rest of the gun owners and Pro Second Amendment Citizens to back your stance in the end!
Pay your dues. Hope the NRA gets it done. But, don't project! What will you do if the lobbying of the NRA fails?
Just because you may cave to big Government doesn't mean he will.
I'll be by his side. Till death do us part. Which is more than half of married couples will fulfill.
Are you really expecting to pay your way out of unconstitutional big Government?

Like many you dont understand what the sequester is. Spending will increase in 2013 compared to 2012. Life will go on.

It was Obama that proposed sequestration, its his fault. What were facing today is nothing more than a manufactured crisis by both parties. Im all for allowing the sequestration to occur.

We have the worst president in modern times. Overall, only Warren Harding was worse. There are some striking similarities between Obama and Harding. While in office Harding spent his time playing golf, poker and generally ignoring his job. All while his cronies plundered the government.

Obama stumps telling his followers what they want to hear. Meanwhile hes busy destroying the future of this nation. Youve had a double dose of the Kool-Aid. You may change your mind in time. Even the liberal media is beginning to see Obama for what he is.

I noticed you didnt say anything further on ACORN. You finally realize how wrong you were?

Of course they would like that. We cant expect anyone to put forth a little effort to exercise one of their constitutional duties.

I cant agree with your assessment. If not for the political clout of the NRA how many politicians would have caved into pressure?

I just found this out the other day about the NRAs 4 1/2 million members. Life Time members are just that, lifetime. The NRA never takes them off the books when they die. So the 4 1/2 million is way over the number of actual living members.

I belong to several pro second amendment organizations. I am a benefactor level NRA member, also presidents council. Im a life member of the GOA. I continue to contribute to Georgia Carry because of the good work they do. And I joined Florida Carry last year.

Ive been a member of GCO since 2008, just a year after they began. In their short time and weighted for their small size theyve been one of the most effective organizations Ive seen. http://www.georgiacarry.org/

What they do in Georgia does impact surrounding states.

I also regularly engage my representatives at the county, state and federal level. Its critical we tell them how we feel on issues. That can influence their votes.

Recently I heard our county commissioners were proposing required background checks on private sales. I immediately engaged the county commissioners and reminded them of Florida pre-emption laws which would make them personally liable if they chose to proceed. I told them I would contact the governors office if the ordinance passed.

Yes, I do walk the walk.

You could say the same for every other civil rights organization, but it simply is not true. Even if the NRA "wins" today, but in the real world, there are still all those anti-gun zealots out there trying to undermine your rights, they don't just disappear. The other fact is that the NRA does more than fight idiotic gun control They have numerous training programs, safety programs, product reviews, technican data publications, competitions, law enforcement training programs, certified instructor training, pistol permit courses, crime prevention/defense programs, women's programs, and a host of other activities. Plus membership comes with a ton of benefits and discounts! Just sayin'
