Last evening, I signed up for NRA under the EPL (easy pay life) membership plan. I've heard MANY people complain that one of the main reasons they dropped the NRA or refuse to join is because of mass mailings and telemarketing calls soliciting funds. That was a fear I had also. In the confirmation email that I received from the NRA, there was this statement

>If you have any questions regarding your order, please email us at
>membership@nrahq.org. Or you may call our Toll Free Membership
>Account Information Hotline at 1-877-NRA-2000.

So to that email address, I sent the following letter

Hello,

I just signed up for NRA membership today. I am on the EPL life membership plan.

I have one request however. There is one reason I have delayed until now joining the NRA. I have heard the reputation for aggressive fundraising that the NRA has.

I do not wish to receive phone calls and massive mailing asking for money.
The fight to protect the Second Amendment is near and dear to me and I will donate what I can, when I can. In the future, I hope to be able to afford higher levels of membership.

But in the meantime, please don't contact me excessively.

Thank you,

This morning, I received this reply

Dear Stebalo,
Thank you for contacting us.
If you would be so kind as to reply to this email with your full name and
complete mailing address, we would be happy to look into this matter for you.
We can then place you on the limited mailing list and no phone call list per
your request. All members have this option by simply requesting it.
Thank you for your support!
Best regards,
Morgan
NRA Member Communications

I suggest anyone who doesn't want the NRA wasting money by begging you for money you don't have or who have opted for no membership for fear of a deluge of bulk mailings and phone calls to look into this.

I just replied to this email. If I hear anything else of consequence, I'll post it in this thread.
