Since Hawker knows John Sigler maybe he can tell him how embarassing it will be to see Delaware follow suite with him at the helm of the NRA
I'm am, mostly because most of the USPSA/IPSC matches in which I participate require it and the range I'm currently looking to join requires it as well, since the NRA subsidizes them.
I don't necessarily agree with a lot of things the NRA does, but it's a trade-off that I find myself having to accept.
Hrm, I might've been wrong with the USPSA -- I could've sworn they asked for my NRA member number on my application last year.I've been a member of the USPSA for many years. I've never heard of that organization requiring membership in the NRA.
A private range may require NRA membership, but what do you mean "subsidize" ?
I've been an annual member for years (long enough to have paid for a life membership, in fact), and this year I've finally decided to "downgrade" my membership. I'll lose a magazine which I hardly bother to skim through anymore (the same stuff repeated ad nauseum) and voting rights (the same nominating committee folks elected year after year), but it's either that or just let my membership lapse.
The best voice we have for protecting our gun rights is the NRA. I personally know John Sigler and the good work he and they do.
How many of you are NRA members? If you are not... why not?
Ask Chris Knox how well the "voting out the compromisers" thing works.Maybe someday when I am a Life Member and can vote at those NRA elections, I can help the NRA get a Board less willing to "compromise".
I probably need to do more research, but I think we should repeal the NFA of 1934 and GCA of 1968 for starters.
