    Negative. IMHO the NRA must not be discredited and divided. Despite it's recent dabbling into ultra-conservative territory one cannot ignore the leadership role that the NRA has historically played with regard to firearms safety. Our current dilemma involves both firearms and safety and we should not be made afraid to consult with this organization.

    Actually I hope this brings more members to the NRA. People will see the "punishment" for what it is, political/emotional.

    My $$$ will no longer flow into the pockets of entities that have ended their relationship with the NRA in this most recent round of NRA-hating and I'll remind them of why I am no longer patronizing them.

    It's a shame that only 5 million of us are currently NRA members. Seems like we should be about 20 million strong at least.

    I hope that this has an opposite effect like when the left was demonizing the founder of Chick-fil-A.

    United added to the list. Seriously, unless I wanted to be dragged off a flight or bumped out of my seat by a liberal witch, why would I fly United.

    Cancel NRA membership?

    Only if one desires to give up all one's firearms and have the Constitution gutted of civil rights.

    I'm certainly not cancelling NRA and I WILL boycott the companies who are putting social issues over dollars. I think my Cabelas card or Jeep card may be the Omaha bank and if so, I'm cancelling it and telling them why. They need to know it goes farther than just NRA-affiliated credit cards.

    Bone up guys. We've been down this road before.

    This latest tragedy doesnt belong to the NRA.
    The FBI had their backs turned.
    The sheriffs dept ignored warnings
    The sheriffs dept personnel stood by while kids were being shot.
    The school allowed a non student into its halls.
    The NRA isnt responsible for this, despite what NBC, CBS, CNN are reporting.

    This is a national moral crisis, not a gun rights issue.
    Im sorry, but show me where ONE of these "shooters"(or my personal favorite....'gunman') was attending church prior to their murderous rampage.

    No, I will not. I never used any of those member benefits anyway. The only one I've ever considered using was the instructor insurance, and I don't think that one will ever be removed.

    I will remain an NRA member and will probably give an extra donation because I realize that these are crisis times for our gun rights. That said, I think that whoever crafts their public relations and media policy is on the wrong track altogether. The population of people who support gun rights is much too broad and diverse to fit under the tent of "George Soros and Michael Bloomberg want to disarm us in order to enslave us and bring about the New World Order." That's oversimplified tinfoil-hat talk, IMO, and it actually helps those who want to demonize and marginalize the NRA. It might stir up the fears that bring in the donations from the hardcore base, but I think it pushes out just as many people as it brings in. That's what I told the last NRA fundraiser that called me at home.

    Stick to the gun-rights issue, NRA. Use the money wisely -- invest it in candidates and campaigns, but get the political scare-mongering out of the public presence of the organization. And hire some good, savvy talking heads to present the gun-rights side to the public. Wayne LaPierre and Dana Loesch aren't cutting it.

    LoL.
    All the antis and socialists are eternally envious of the NRA, and will try to do them dirty at every opportunity.

    ILA has, over about 30 years, given about $200 million to politicians.
    Last year, only last year, AFL/CIO pumped out right at $2 billion.
    Who got the bigger bang for their buck?

    AFL/CIO claims to represent 12 million workers (actual membership numbers are harder to pin down).
    NRA represents something near 30 million (probably more) firearm owners with an actual membership of 3-5 million.

    Why would anyone part from an organization that successful (without getting into internecine arguments of how they could have done better).

    I mean, really, how could a person not be a member of a group that makes Rosie, Ellen, DiFi, et all, foam at the mouth emoting histrionically?

    Hey, look, a "gun give-away" envelope; I'm sticking $40 in that mailing it away today--I can give up a couple of dinners out.

    The NRA is the only organization in the world that gets blamed for crimes that none of its members commit.

    So far as I'm concerned, the NRA is the main reason we still have guns.

    Not only will I not cancel my NRA membership, I am inclined to see how much I can afford to donate to the NRA-ILA rather than ignore their appeals as I usually do.

    The prohibitionists hope to use emotion to trump reason. I won't help them win.

    I hear a lot of people stating they are going to boycott; Enterprise, Wyndham, United, Delta, MetLife, etc. As I mull this over, I find myself wondering if I should be rewarding the companies that never offered an NRA discount. I favor the Hilton chain and travel a lot, did they over offer an NRA membership? I honestly never asked because I get a corporate rate with them but if they snubbed the NRA by not offering any discount to members prior to this latest bandwagon move by competitors then why should they benefit from any boycott? I'm all ears.

    Nope on cancelling my NRA. These businesses dropping the NRA are caving to a few people using Bots to seem like a lot of complainers. If the NRA has millions of us like they say, then we should be able to show them they are going to lose money by dissing the members. But, I won't lose any sleep over not using those who drop NRA, I just choose someone else.

    Now is the time we should support the NRA more than ever.

    If you can't see that, you have not been paying attention ...

    Why doesn't the NRA create discount programs for stuff its members actually want and like- ammunition, accessories, gear, certain retailers. Who the heck cares about a car rental or insurance?? The Metlife insurance in particular had no firearm owner specific benefits... NRA was merely steering millions of members to that company.

    Dumb.

    How about member benefits for Federal ammunition, Leupold scopes, Ruger products, Cabelas, ets, etc, etc...

    Anyone else think it's probably for the best in the long run, that the NRA's message and finances not be at the mercy of outside groups that have nothing to do with its mission?

    No, I am not a member of the NRA for the discounts, but because of what they do to preserve out 2nd Amendment rights.

    Funny how they(the antis) talk about the second Amendment shouldn't apply to ARs etc.
    Using that logic maybe freedom of the press shouldn't apply to TV, just to hand operated printing presses like they had when the Bill of Rights was written.. (oh but that's different of course)
    I remember the news when it reported the news and wasn't as concerned with attempting to brainwash the population to the TV stations way of thinking.

    At the time the NRA made that comment the FBI was killing a unarmed woman holding a baby, helping to burn 76 religious extremists including their children to death, harassing and forcing FFL dealers out of business, grabbing a child out of his relatives arms at gun point and forcibly sending the child back to Cuba along with other abuses of citizens and gun owners.

    Today we know Officials in the FBI and on Mueller’s “investigation” team deliberately supported HRC election team and supplied false information to them.

    Instead of killing citizens and abusing our gun rights they are now actively working to remove the President from office.

    When the Democrats win control of The House of Representatives in November will you feel the NRA has been punished enough?
