    In my opinion, the NRA needs to change its policy/position on, not actively initiating marches, rallies, polls etc. This is my understanding after calling them, they don't do it. To be clear I believe they SHOULD start marches, call for march dates, initiate phone call-in days to certain elected officials etc


    Imagine what type of rally it would be nation wide if the NRA started it! Time for the 800 lb gorilla in the room to CHEST THUMP a bit!!

    So, how does a policy change happen, swiftly.Does anyone know the internal rules of the NRA. Does anyone agree? Or are we ever to be a rag-tag fleet of individuals, facebook started events, etc????

    thanks for your comments !

    NRA's strategy may not include public displays for many reasons.

    Poor turnout, biased reporting of events, challenges of getting working Americans who are concerned about having their faces on TV or taking the time off. Remember that most "million" whatever marches/rallies don't get anything close to a million people and the "Restore America" rally was plagued by reporting disagreements on how many people actually attended (80,000-500,000).

    If NRA's strategy doesn't consider marches or rallies in Washington to be beneficial what organizations could take that strategy and organize an event do something with it?

    Yes there are many excuses that pile up in the way of success which plagues all failure type personalities, in this case, organizational policies?? But I always pressed forward anyways. I mean, why get out of bed, might trip, might spill the coffee. My teeth hurt.


    Best not try.

    That's the next question, afterwards. Perhaps if some smaller organization would lead, the NRA:neener: would ''follow''.

    However,1st things 1st, it's my belief that 1) a sufficient # of NRA members DO want this especially in time of....DIRE NEED 2) NRA as is all organizations, should heed the reasonable requests of its membership.
