    While we can never claim to have won this war, we can and should take time to reflect on and celebrate victories when they occur.

    I'm pretty certain that if not for the NRA and it's members we would not be celebrating today's Senate victory. I can't even imagine what things would be like if not for the NRA.

    If you are an NRA member, thank you. I have also taken the time to thank the NRA directly.


    NOTE: I realize that there are a lot of NRA critics. If you are one of them you're welcome to your views but please take them to a thread of your own or one of the many threads where the NRA is debated and respect the fact that this thread is for thanking the NRA and its members for a job well done.

    Definitely a big thank you to the NRA. While not handled perfectly it's being handled effectively so far. Lest we not forget Gun Owners of America for all the email alerts with links to popvox.

    I'm a life member since 1974, & as allways I thank the NRA for there efforts in combatting this very important issue inre. the 2nd Amendment, but lets not drop our guard, as I'm sure there will be further assaults on our freedom.

    I have been doing well this year and last...

    Made donations to all three of Ted Cruz's campaigns...
    Upped NRA membership to Life last year and Endowment this year...
    Joined GOA and TSRA as a Life member...
    I have also made donations to the NRA-ILA funds...

    The snit fit by the tyrant in the White House yesterday made it all worthwhile...

    @ JoeDorn:

    Didn't it? That whiny baby Obama was on national television having a break down temper tantrum of epic proportions. Tough! All that navel sniveling nonsense didn't override the will of the people to exercise their rights. Well done NRA, GOA and everyone else involved!

    I just joined the NRA as a Life Member this month. I've owned guns for a year now, but just joined the NRA because they were out in front on this crucial issue. They are not perfect organization, but then again, which one is? That being said, the value they provide on the 2nd Amendment, training programs and so much more make it worth the $1000 check I just sent them.

    If not for the NRA, we would have lost our Second Amendment rights long ago. I'm proud to have been a member since 1967. While I'm thinking of it, all of us should try to send NRA-ILA some money whenever we can. Like I tell my gun owning, non NRA member friends, it takes lots of money to win these battles. We won a battle yesterday, but the war will go on. The anti-gun forces will regroup. You can be certain of that.

    Phil Dirt,

    You're on the mark. I consider my contributions to the NRA-ILA like an expendable gun expense like a cleaning cloth, oil or ammo. It is part of the cost and maintenance of owning your gun. As long as we all see it that way, we'll arm the war chest coffers to continue to turn the tide against bad legislation, and in court to throw out existing unconstitutional statutes.

    NO question, the NRA saved our bacon this time! I hope they keep the whiney libs at bay!

    Well done abajaj11! Talk to them about the NRA-ILA too if they aren't already aware and try to get them to drop a few bucks as their budget permits. :)

    While I am often critical of the NRA as being too willing to bend, I will thank them for helping to hold the line this time. If they keep it up, I am liable to start singing their praises.

    Another "thank you for the NRA" from me. I urge anyone who is not, to become a life member. Politics aside, the NRA is the American gunowners best friend. I sometimes do not agree with some of their stances or actions, but I know I can depend on them to fight to keep Americans legally armed.

    I sent in my membership application just this past Monday after a three year hiatus. I eventually want to become a lifetime member but I can't afford it right now. Thanks to the NRA, pro 2A advocates, and others, I really appreciate all the effort.
