    I haven't seen the "most dangerous 700 days" thing outside of this thread. Taking it at face value, well, that is why I don't read much from the NRA unless it is simply facts/direct quotes/voting records.

    Holy COW!! Reading this thread and the complaints about the NRA.
    Again WOW!!

    I may not think the NRA people are expert marketers. Far be it, they certainly could do a better job. Hiring some real qualified quality people who understand sales and marketing would go along way at improving how they communicate a message.

    But I shudder to think were we would be even today if the NRA was not out there fighting the good fight on our behalf.
    They are in fact good at the court fights. Thank goodness.

    Just updated my membership to life time. They may not be perfect, But glad we have them.

    You could just follow the link I provided to the February issue of American Hunter. It takes up the entire cover complete with a unflattering picture of Obama.

    American Hunter does have some good article once you skip over all the fear-mongering fundraising stuff. The link has the archive with issues back to 2009.

    Edit:
    Apparently it made the cover of American Rifleman too:

    And America's 1st Freedam:
    http://www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/nra/aff_201502/

    Regardless of which magazine a member chooses; the NRA felt the need to tell us that even after the election we are still doomed. (Unless you send money of course)

    I think a couple people in this thread should just look up the recent words of regret disgraced AG Holder on what he didn't get done in office. #1? Gun Control. And you know it burns in Obama as well.

    I'm surprised this thread is still going...

    JSH1 - If I were in charge of an organization like the NRA I would do the same thing, because when the next defense of our Rights happens it will be with the money that comes in now, not the money that starts to trickle in as the battle is being fought.
    By continuing the campaign for funds now, they can maintain the fight against the anti-gunners (which are constant, not just during these big scares).

    Yes. Please underestimate the assault on our civil rights.

    "I may not think the NRA people are expert marketers. Far be it, they certainly could do a better job. Hiring some real qualified quality people who understand sales and marketing would go along way at improving how they communicate a message."

    From what schools do you think the best marketeers and media people hail? Texas Christian, or UC Berkeley? It's selection bias resulting from wildly biased education centers, and is the same reason we have such a hard time finding decent politicians, judges, representatives, and celebrities to promote or protect our rights.

    If there's a whiz-bang ad guy on the forum here who can compete nationally with the opposition while promoting the cause, by all means speak up and all the NRA members can demand his inclusion. That's sorta kinda what ended up happening with Colion Noir (IIRC, he was an independent youtube celebrity who was later picked up by the NRA by popular demand). Somehow I doubt that's a very common critter; the media savvy promoter with credentials that wasn't either drawn to or poisoned by the enormous pressure to conform to his peers in school/growing up/professionally.
