Seems kind of stupid to me to fail to support the one organization that has been successful in supporting our gun rights over the years, just because it is not perfect, and has not been able to prevent anti gun politicians from taking over in every area of America. The NRA was not able to prevent many laws from passing in California, but they still file lawsuit after lawsuit in an effort to keep some of them from taking effect, and these lawsuits have been effective in many cases. When anti gun laws end up in the supreme court, it is always the NRA who takes the lead and the other groups just join in with support.

I'm a lifetime NRA member and I feel the same way you do.

If more people joined the GOA they could be more effective! Being retired and on a fixed income, I have to be careful where I through money. I feel the GOA is a much better use of these dollars.

Sad part is they will probably claim credit for today's 2A victory here in Va.

They'll never get my money again.

When the NRA planned a rally that was going to compete with the strong VCDL rally being planned I sent an email telling them if they split a strong ongoing effort Id never give them a dime.

I get it the NRA is the elephant in the room. Its failure would be a huge anti victory but they have made themselves suspect by their own membership through their wasteful ways and lack of effectiveness. They have been too compromising with nothing ever in return.

The stories of their internal financial malfeasance are just more nails in the coffin.

Go back to basics teach firearm safety, teach firearms proficiency, promote firearms education, do not compromise anymore until the law abiding start getting some of their rights lost in previous compromises.

1986, 1968, 1934 are all one sided.

Amen. No thanks to the "Not Real Activists", where most of your money goes to fund LaPierre's next vacation anyways.

GOA, 2AF, and our beloved CMP do far far more to benefit recreational shooters.

Not sure this is the correct forum for this thread, but since we are on this path I have to agree for the most part.....

Having a defunct NRA will not help us. Especially right now. Supporting the legislative and lobbying side of NRA, NRA-ILA, will make it much harded for LaPierre to get his hands on it. Just designate "legislative only" on check. Membership or not!

Support the non-profit Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) as they are in the trenches all over our Country, fighting and winning the battles that directly effect us.

https://www.saf.org/2nd-amendment-legal-action/

Support your state association and get involved. Boomberg is trying to beat us in every state with his paid for brainwashed machine. This is the battle front.

VA should be enough to convince us that the days of simply quoting "it's our right" is not enough. Put your money where your mouth is, show up and vote! No vote = no whinning!

CMP goes without saying and any other pro-gun association we can help for that matter. For our own sake and for generations to come.

When the battle gets tough, break out the BIG guns and stand united!!
