The only stuff I saw was that they dropped the NRA from their fund list. I didn't see any PR campaign bragging about it, or any anti gun statements. Just dropping NRA from their automatic donations. Then a press release after people freaked out saying as much, and that they are still pro firearm. Did you see anything beyond that?

 

IMO I'm tired of the NRA being seen as THE proxy for American gun rights. NRA sells us out a hell of a lot more than an over priced cup maker. I decided a few years ago not to back the NRA too. I'll gladly back institutions that actually do lobby for freedom, such as 2Af and GOA.

They have become a cash machine.

All they do is send requests for money and monthly letters stating that it is time to renew. 

I find it funny that the requests to renew come after I had just renewed ,it is every month. 

Follow the money.

Talk radio has become like that also, they push for you to subscribe

People who bash the NRA are generally ignorant of all the programs, training and mechanisms they employ to foster shooting sports and defend our rights.

 

I dont see where they have ever "sold us out"

1) just a few weeks ago, they explicitly suggested that BATFE should ignore the language of the statute in their official press releases, and regulate bump stocks as machine guns. Even if you think bump stocks are dumb, that is the worst kind of precedent, and NRA scoring a home goal.

 

2) You must not live in Washington state. We got a "universal background check" law about 3 years ago that makes sharing guns during recreational shooting a felony even among family members. NRA fundraiser on it heavily here, but didn't do so much as run an ad campaign on the west side of the state. NRA then took credit for legal action by 2nd Amendment foundation, even though they had jack all to do with it.  Same deal with the current proposed legislation. I've seen at least some signs that they are giving out this time, but it is phoning it in on one of those plastic phones that toddlers used to drag around. I still get fundraising emails from them 4x a week or more though.

 

NRA has routinely been squishy to on the wrong side of restrictions to purchase, and also import restrictions on imports for various firearms , ammo , and accessories.

 

Appleseed and the like are nifty, but they are side issues. No use having training programs for guns we aren't allowed to own or use for their primary purpose. I value some of the publications and programs they have done, but as far as I can tell, they are AARP for gun people. They claim to represent us, but really are about keeping their own salaries forever. Everything is a sponsored tie in, and their magazines are mostly ads. What they produce vs what they take in shows who they are. GOA and similar do a hell of a lot more with a lot less money.

So, WTF?   Where they supposed to go and vote for you too? :unsure:

 

That's basically what GOA and the rest do also.  My mailbox is usually chock full of GOA, SAF, CCRKBA, etc. postcards and "please give us more :dollar: :dollar: :dollar: donation vouchers. :rolleyes:

 

F.Y.I. - one of my douchebag little nieces thought it would be funny to send in a small donation to the DNC years ago in my name for an April Fools joke 30+ years ago.  And even though I've been telling them by phone to piss off and leave me alone when they beg call most mornings, I'm still getting shit from them.  They actually had the gall to send me a "help Billy out of his legal troubles" donation form (help pay WJC's legal fees) just because he apparently couldn't keep his pecker in his pants about 20+ years ago. :angry:

 

Was thinking about wiping my ass with that particular donation form, and sending it back to them.  Didn't think the USPS would take that too lightly though with the Anthrax scares and shit going on around that time. :lol:

no Im not ignorant, I dont expect the NRA to vote for me......

 

I expect some "NATIONAL SUPPORT ORGANIZATION"  from them to help fight the anti gun onslaught ITS WHAT THEY CLAIMED THEY NEEDED MY DONATIONS FOR  & I HAVE A SHIT RAG MAGAZINE IN FRONT OF ME WITH LaPiere selling fear in an article looking for donations for the same good fight! WHAT A SCAM

 

the fuckin liberal demorat school teachers do a better job at NATIONAL GUN ORGANIZATION than the NRA Money generating machine!     and they are using OUR education tax dollars to rally against US & thats fuckin brilliant!

 

The NRA if they were in the fight for us ..... should be organizing simultaneous rallies ACROSS THE COUNTRY IN SUPPORT OF EVERY STATE UNDER ATTACK BY CROOKED DEMOCRATS USING THE EMERGENCY CLAUSES TO PUSH THRU EVERY BILL WITHOUT A VOTE by the people and that how this is being accomplished, it wont be long before the tryanical tactic gets used in as many states as they can cheat

 

we have  pro gun rallys here in the north west with a meager turn out because republicans WORK to pay for the snowflakes getting dole checks that can jump off mommies basement couch to terrorize a city in a so called protest which becomes a riot that gets watched by the to serve and protect group

 

they are working hard at semi auto gun confiscation right now in Oregon and I dont even expect a post card this time from the NRA cunts they are too busy counting the cash donations and deciding the most cost effective schwag to offer the idiots that keep sending cash

 

I guess we fall state by state with the attitudes I see here ......so we will fight our own battles and when we loose again due to ZERO national support like New York, Colorado, Oregon, Washington etc etc ....your state will fall..... IN KIND ......IN TIME

 

fuckin genius's WITH ATTITUDES what a brilliant support plan & with hubris !...your precious NRA & chincy programs, training and mechanisms are about to become a JOKE! they wont work without guns AND THEY ARE COMING FOR YOUR GUNS

 

so if your response will be as similar as WTF do you want the NRA to vote for you ....your no help at all your apathy is part of the self centered gun nut culture problem that they have been calling us on.

 

CarryOn

Well, there you go.  I think you answered your own rant right there.  Snowflakes can go out and scream about shit (most of them know little to nothing about anyway rolleyes.gif ) because most don't have jobs they have to show up for.  Then they got dumb f**k NFL team owners (Robert Kraft) and Hollyweird assholes funding their whine fests too. mad.gif

 

I agree, the NRA is probably pretty bloated and pays it's executives too much.  I don't think they get much help though (being a non profit) fighting in court rooms every day trying to tamp down stupid gun control bills.  Compare that to the millions of tax 012.gif012.gif012.gif spent by all the Progressive government groups out there in the witch hunt trying to force Trump out of office (as an example).  If anything, you should probably be more pissed off by that.  Don't waste my tax dollars trying to impeach someone just because you have sour grapes sand in your vagina now because your suck ass candidate got trounced fairly in the election.

 

If it pisses you off so much, do like I (sometimes) do.  Donate once, and throw away any other shit they send you in that same calender month.  Then don't be a hypocrite too by eating at Ellen's in the west end (if you live in Dallas).  $3.00 dollars for a f**king cup of coffee or a glass of milk is only paid by snowflakes, dipshits, and rubes. laugh.png

Part of why "donate once" doesn't work is they spend  the cost of my donation on mailers to me. That's a non-starter with me for any charity. (i.e. Operation Christmas Child.) Even if they were doing something worthwhile, my donation is negated. What's the delta for when a donation would be useful. I bet they spend $60 on mailers and marketing at me every year, and that would quadruple if that resulted in money. How much do you have to give them before it outpaces the amount they spend on begging from you?

 

The other part is that donating anything to an entity which will use my donation to propose a "common sense compromise" has been a failing strategy for my entire lifetime. 

 

The other part is that they represent a compromise, and to a lot of congress, they = me. But they don't = me, and I don't want them to be able to count me towards their numerical claim that they do speak for me.

 

Again, the NRA has spent very little of its budget on court cases, and there are effective organizations who go to court and win. Heller was not NRA. Heller was SAF going to court and winning a cast that the NRA didn't bother to include in their strategy. It's also pretty much the pattern. If you look at most of the worthwhile cases which challenge, and sometimes win, they are filed by organizations that are more about practicing than marketing. 

 

The NRA has done about as good a job of protecting firearms rights as the DNC has for making Chicago a more prosperous city. Let's get off the plantation, and quit treating the NRA as synonymous with uncompromising defense of the 2A.

The NRA needs to stay the hell out of court cases, because for the most part they fuck things up like they tried unsuccessfully to do with Heller.  They are simply not any good at that aspect of the fight.  On the other hand, SAF needs to stay the hell out of lobbying elected officials because THEY are no good at THAT.  Or has everybody forgotten already about SAF/Alan Gottleib's attempted sell-out post Sandy Hook?

 

The bottom line is that the NRA tries to do the best they can with what they have to work with.  Their strength is not that they can buy legislators, because they simply don't have the budget for it.  The best they can do is give some aid to politicians who have demonstrated views consistent with the NRA's agenda, which can approach in effectiveness spending enough on legislators to ensure they stay bought, but it's an imperfect solution, since the funds simply aren't there to compete with our enemies on a dollar for dollar basis.

 

The NRA's best weapon for keeping pols in line has always been the wrath of its members....  At times when the group's leadership has perceived that the membership is energized and involved, they've done a decent job of holding the line and refusing to compromise.  At other times when the rank and file has seemed to be apathetic or uninvolved, then that is when the NRA has been more inclined to cut deals.  This is one reason why the NRA is no good at court battles; judges don't have to fear getting voted out of office, so NRA's usual skill set is no good there compared to groups like SAF.

 

The NRA is an organization of gun owners, not a hired lobbying group that you send a few bucks to and have them fight your battles for you.  We get out of it exactly what we put into it.  Nothing more, nothing less.  If you want to blame them for seeking to cut deals, you'd be better off directing your ire at your fellow gun owners who can't be bothered to get involved in the fight.  Even just having a basic annual membership is huge...  Imagine if all or most gun owners were NRA members instead of just a small percentage.  With a membership in the high tens of millions, we could run the tables politically.

Here we are back at the fucktard bumpstocks.

 

Its the same old shill game of "divide and conquer "

 

Some idiots dont realize you dont tear down one institution protecting our rights to prop up your pet group.

I use the term idiots because the master who invented useful idiots coined the phrase.

ALL of them together are more effective!!! bitching about any one of them just hurts us all !!

 

TEN years I only read this forum before ever joining or posting.

 

Every day the same old few remind me why

The bumpstocks was the end, the point was goa in the eyes of those wanting to disarm the people is worse then the fudd nra. Ive seen the nra compromise and help create these compromises then actually fight to keep the rights.

 

I dont care if you want a bumpstock or full auto, and the issue with full auto was the crime committed was done by a police officer, not a every day person.

It is okay to  sit back and listen it is also okay to express how we feel, this is why we are who we are.

Conversations get heated when people have deep feelings about what is right and what is wrong.

Deep feelings of well founded truth give everyone  protection of  God given rights to life ,liberty and not to reasonably retard our goals and dreams of a happy life.

I said reasonable  because some people are happy killing you.

If a person who wants to play soldier and shoot his bumpstock  at the range or a safe place to shoot go for it. The fact that I do not approve should not stop that person.

If I do not want to give to a Gun organization because I do not like guns, that my right .

If you do not approve of my choice then I do not have to do business  with you.

What I am saying is America is still working.

The reality is there are more people with guns today more states with CCW laws right now than ever.

I do not see a problem.

If the law makers do things we do not approve of we vote them out. One group banned assault rifles, they got voted out and now we have them.

There is reason why  people buying guns surged after this last shooting in fl.  People want to be safe and they are  now understanding that the police cannot do it.

Police work when it comes to crime is most always after the fact, after the  crime has been committed . To protect and to serve is false advertising .

A antigun person will  hold to their feelings only when they think the police will protect them. Most will change when it does not happen.

I do not see anyone going after the Nuts out there but they have rights to.

A tale of NRA pomposity and duplicity.

 

 There was a Rod and Gun club in Prince George's Co. MD. The ONLY one. It was the Berwinn Rod and Gun Club,It was a happy place for many years. Nothing lasts forever, the once Conservative Local Government became a NYC Liberal playground. They said that the Club was a MENACE and that ALL lead MUST be cleaned up and the range FOREVER closed. The NRA offered NOTHING! All hope was lost.

The NRA went around using this as an example of a failed Club and that this Club would never return, it was a lost cause.

 Unknown to the NRA, some members of this club had used NRA and other information, and worked closely with Park and Planning. They got themselves a huge loan. ALL the lead was removed. Proper "no blue sky" overhead baffles were installed. The Club met all requirements of the Park and planning Commission and received a coveted "GREEN SPACE" designation.

 The DAY that the Club reopened the NRA published their article on how THIS Club had failed and as I remember their tone was SMARMY and arrogant as always with the warning DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOUR CLUB!

think oliver north will fix stuff or is teh swamp too deep at NRA too?

 

as far as yeti goes, i havent looked into it... i like quality products, my wife bought a cup while back, has a magnet holds top on, pretty neat engineered so its easy to clean, buuuuuuuuuut, screw spending butt tons of money on nursing your coffee all morning, hahaha

 

in terms of NRA, their strategy, if it can be called that, certainly doesnt seem to be furthering our cause... ie, no HPA passed, no counter info, no telling the idiots how stupid they are for blaming a organization for the actions of the demented individual, etc...

So if you hate the NRA. then who has the most clout to protect our gun rights?

As a voting NRA member, I can, and do, vote out liberal moles that have weaseled in the board of directors.

Except the way they are structured, their BOD don't have a lot of day to day authority, other than to hire the people who make the actual decisions.

 

As to your question, I believe second amenment foundation and GOA have done at least as much good on a fraction of the budget. 2af gives you the Heller decision... NRA gives you compromises.
