    Doesn't matter, because the ones that are are just posers anyway, with the possible exception of Ron Paul.

    I think it does matter and says something about the candidate. A membership would be a pretty good indication if they're gun friendly or not.

    You mean like Romney who "supports the 2nd amendment" and an AWB.

    The real question should be...
    If they are an NRA member, when did they join?
    Sending in your membership paperwork two weeks
    after you join the presidential race is more than just
    a little disingenuous.:(

    The question should be who actually supports the 2nd amendment.
    .
    Who was a willing cosponsor of this bill?
    and some more good reading.

    I see no problem with Romney being an NRA member or when he joined. I sat down and had a long talk about this with Senator Larry Craig (Utah), who is supporting him. Mitt made a couple of early campaign goofs, and learned from his mistakes.

    No one from this forum came out of the womb with an advanced knowledge of the second amendment....your support and understanding took time. I'd rather have a new 2nd Amendment supporter that is in the learning process than one that working against you. Anyone think that Senator Larry Craig wouldn't be an excellent mentor for Romney?



    This post isn't about Romney or who supports the 2nd, it's about what candidates are NRA members. If you want to know start your own thread and ask the question.

    Considering the state of Massachusetts' gun laws, and Romney's support for another AWB any "mentoring" is likely to bee seen as posturing. But hey, that's just me.

    Doesn't really matter. Anyone can be a member of the NRA, just like anyone can go duck hunting. Even if they are NRA members they can still be posers or just as bad (if not worse) elitest aholes that could care less about the right to keep and bare arms so long as their 10,000 dollar shotgun isn't in jeopordy.

    Sorry, my mistake.
    I thought it might be 2nd amendment related.

    Well to be fair the gun laws in Mass where restrictive way before Romney became governor. He actually did not pass any new gun laws while in office. The AWB he did sign into law was only a copy of the original law that was enacted in 1994, this was rewrite to clear up some confusing language in the original law. It actually helped gun owners in this state That being said Romney is a ultimate example of a politician who will say and do anything to get elected.

    I'm unsure of Bill Richardson's NRA membership status but I know he has a concealed carry permit.

    NRA memberships means jack squat. Michael Moore has one. He used it to get an interview with Heston, then insult and mock him.

    Get an NRA membership and swindle your way to el Presidente.

    Romney, the "lifetime" NRA member who just signed up when he got Presidential ambitions. Just like how he's hunted "all his life" - he's been twice.

    No sir, don't trust him a bit!

    Only if your a complete moron with no reading comprehension skills.

    "Shall not be infringed" is a 6th grade comprehension level statement.

    Or he just learned how to play the political game. Tell the public what they want to hear.

    Funny you should bring up reading comprehension.....appears the question wasn't simple enough for most to understand. Rather than give a direct answer to a direct question, most have gotten side tracked with their bloviating.

    I remember when Larry Craig represented the good people of Idaho. He must have moved. ;)

    True. Larry Craig isn't very well thought of here in Idaho. He represents and supports big business interests, e.g., timber, mining, and supports illegal immigration, etc. Traitor.

    I think it's a BIG problem. He became a life member last year, and he hasn't learned squat. In the debates he pretty much bragged about signing the AWB.

    I give up......appears the question is too difficult to answer. Out of all the responses only two tried to answer it. Getting a straight answer is like asking a drunk driver to keep the car between the lines.

    perhaps you should consider the question asked in the first place.

    Exactly! Most of us here can't cite who is and who isn't an NRA member in the crop of candidates because it is irrelevant as to whether or not they are true supporters of the 2nd!

    I don't know if Duncan Hunter is a member, but he has a A+ rating from the NRA and:

    Voted to prohibit product misuse lawsuits on gun manufacturers.
    Voted to lower the wait time for guns purchased at shows from 3 days to 24 hours.
    Voted to prohibit suing gunmakers and sellers for gun misuse.

    Here's a March interview with a blogger regarding 2nd amendment rights (Via Free Republic):

    Rembrandt, why do you want to know who is an NRA member?

    In what way do you think it matters?

    I am not trying to be snide or insulting, I seriously want to know why you are asking is all.
