    I give what I can when I can which unfortunately is not as much as I'd like. I'd like to see the NRA run some ads that show that members are average Americans and not crazy right wing extremists. I would also like the NRA to start declaring that they are a civil rights advocate by supporting the Second Amendment. Lots of good ideas especially those that address public interaction. I'd volunteer some time and I'd be willing to bet others would too.

    The NRA has to articulate how it would place armed security into the schools to protect our nation's children. Further how it would train those teachers that are willing to carry a firearm, concealed into the schools. Obviously the gun free zones is absolutely ridiculous, and custom made for a deranged idiot to shoot the place up.

    They should go on the offensive and run PSA's explaining the Eagle safety program and all the other great workshops the NRA supports. While I do agree they should expose anti-second amendment politicians, they ought to show they aren't defined by who they are against.

    The NRA should also continue to fund states like CA, NY, etc. and sue the hell out of the legislation that is totally illegal. They need call out things like this per-round tax and how it is totally illegal to tax a constitutionally guaranteed right.

    All of us need to give as much as we can to the NRA-ILA and support these fights. It may not be in your neighborhood this time around, but do you think the gun grabbers will stop in NY or CA? Heck no, they won't stop! We have to fight them back and be unified as one, with the NRA leading the counter charge.

    I have to agree pretty strongly with this. Mr. Pierre made some pretty absurd moves during this. His diatribe about video games put him on the same level as antis talking about guns. There is no credible evidence to support the idea that such video games lead to violence or mass shootings. In fact, the evidence that exists is completely to the contrary. It was just another instance of blacing blame where it doesn't belong and ignoring the important issues. The NRA is at its best buying loyalty from politicians and serving as a political boogey man. They really do need a better spokes person and better ideas with respect to what they are putting out to the general public.

    One thing that we need to do is elect better board members. When you have POS board members like Joaquin Jackson can we really expect ideal results. When an NRA board member is out there saying the exact same things or worse than antis (arguing for a 5 round magazine capacity) that is a very bad sign.


    The NRA rating system of politicians and endorsements have also been pretty troubling. They need to vindictively go after these "A" rated and/or endorsed politicians that were pushing for gun control.

    They should remind Americans that what happened in Boston and Watertown WILL happen again, and they should have the capability to defend themselves.

    Indeed, it's precisely what the Other Team has done from Day One--mobilizing whether overt or covert followed by a Pearl Harbor strike is part and parcel of how they roll, usually hidden behind a smokescreen of ersatz "negotiations". Just ask anybody who lived in 1930s "Grossdeutschland"...

    Make no mistake, folks, we are up against people whose ONLY rule is "The Ends Justifies The Means"--and while I'm not advocating sinking to that level, we need to fight a heck of a lot harder and dirtier than we have been. And more important, we need to elect Congresscritters like Ted Cruz who will actually FIGHT, not patty-cake players like Mike Hopeless here in WA, or Turncoat Toomey in the Senate or King Peter the Mediocre in the House.
