    Default Where’s the NRA?

    With all of the DemocRat/ Bloomberg gun laws being shoved down the throats of law abiding gun owners in Virginia, where’s the NRA? In all of the reports and updates I’ve received I haven’t seen any thing from them. Is it too far of a drive? A lost cause and therefore a waste of resources and money? These tyrants are moving right along regardless of the protesters and gun rights groups and everyday citizens.

    Just asking. What do you want the NRA to do? There is nothing that can be done legally, until these bills become law in Virginia. After which, the NRA could file legal challenges to the new laws in federal court.

    It would be more likely that the GOA would file legal challenges, I've seen a lot more out of them and the NRA lately. The NRA is to busy dredging up money to pay Waynes exorbitant salary, and yes I am a member of both but have seriously been thinking about dropping the NRA lately

    For those who are "ignorant" of what the NRA does and is doing legislatively, perhaps some time spent studying this site may help. And by the way, "ignorant" means not aware, it doesn't mean "stupid".

    Additionally, contributions - that's YOUR MONEY - to NRA PVF and ILA helps immensely.

    Too many people expect a year membership renewal of $40 will finance the fight. Be real. People spend hundreds and thousands of dollars annually on firearms, ammo, supplies, reloading and hunting trips, but won't spend $100 as contribution to help sustain the legislative fights to preserve your firearms rights.

    If you won't fund the fight, maybe you deserve to lose it!

    I have made donation to both the NRA and VCDL and the tyrants just laugh and vote to take away our rights. I haven’t heard so much as a threat of legal action from them. Being from NJ, I know that what ever success the a DemocRats have in VA, will bring the same action in NJ and every other state. If they all act at the same time our defenses would be overwhelmed.

    It's so much easier for the "tyrants" to enact outrageous legislation's at the state, county and city levels than nationally. That's why they have so much success in New York, Illinois, Kalifornia, New Jersey and now Virginia.

    We all need to join our various states "NRA's" to be effective. Though I'm now in Minnesota, I still belong to and contribute to California Rifle and Pistol Association (CRPA). Don't ask me why. Just habit, I suppose.

    Most of the heavy lifting that funds the NRA comes from gun manufacturers. They are protecting their right to produce a legal product to sell and, by extension, protecting our rights as gun owners. The $40 bucks we pay for membership serves the purpose of keeping people informed and getting a count of people who are voting in a common block. In addition to paying for a membership, you really do need to complete the polls, surveys and voting informations that you receive from the NRA. That information is all used to reinforce the lobbying efforts of the NRA.

    How much money does it take to go to Virginia? It’s like a 20 minute drive to the capital. To hell with their own back yard, it in their front yard! Perhaps they shouldn’t have such a big building and staff. So they want to close the barn door after the cows get out?

    Those polls and surveys, at least the online ones, have become nothing more than a poorly disguised attempt to solicit money from the membership. If they were serious about the polls and surveys they would remove the requirement to send donations in order to complete the survey. Sort of reminds me of a survey that the American Bar Association sent out a few years back to find out why lawyers were so generally disliked by the public. Completing the survey required sending a $5 donation to the American bar Association.

    Of course they're going to ask for money. But don't assume that that's the reason for the poll.
