    Not An NRA Member? Read This Again and Again...

    lykoris - "It is one thing as a European that has always puzzled me, so many gun owners and yet such an insignificant number are NRA members.

    Unless you support them you are all heading towards European style firearm laws...and believe me there is no going back.

    I would eat canned beans until I paid my annual membership."

    For all of you guys that are paying to get a member of this forum a membership to the NRA, hats off to you. Thank you. I would love to offer the same, but the funds aren't currently available (just moved and you know how financially draining that can be). Heck, I can't even renew my membership for another month! Thanks again guys for what you are doing for everyone. You make me proud to be a member of this community.

    Part of the responsibility here lies with the NRA. Do the math 4,000,000 members x $50 per person = $200 Million dollars a year, and this doesn't include additional funding calls, and drives. The NRA annual budget lies somewhere around $250 million, of which only about 10% goes to political campaigns.

    I agree that every gun owner should be a member, but the NRA has to do a better job of communicating to the public that are not members and run a more efficient public relations campaign.

    And for the record, i am an endowment level lifetime NRA member.

    PM sent.

    Money is tight but I think that there are others that could use the help more than me. And.. I'm in between houses right now.

    Thank you for your gracious offer.

    I'm another expired NRA member. My wife isn't working and I've had higher priorities.

    10 year Veteran of the USAF, 3 tours OIF, and didn't buy my first gun til 2008 (prior to the election, though).

    My take on gun control is this:
    Freedom is not a guarantee for safety. 911 is not a guarantee that the bad guys will be caught and do no harm. I and I alone am responsible for my safety. I am responsible for the safety of my wife and kids. I cannot and will not pass that responsibility off onto someone else for the sake of living a little easier and have one less stressful thing to consider.
    Guns are a reasonable way to see to the safety of myself and my family. I just recently paid the fees for my CPL, and should have it in hand by the end of January. This is something long overdue, but as I said, finances are stretched and I've had other priorities.

    The Constitution of my country and my state protect my right to keep and bear arms. Understanding this, I see every gun law that has been passed since 1791 as unconstitutional.

    A big thank you to Keith aka mnrivrat for sponsoring me. It means a lot to have some one I have never met be so generous.

    Also a big hi-five to all the other donors and contributors in this thread. This is why we will never lose our rights, the 2a community is tight knit and will never give up.

    Proud to be a soon NRA member again.

    I think it's great that more gunowners join the NRA but keep in mind the NRA spends most of it's resources on non-political endeavors. As funds permit, please consider donating to the NRA-ILA and NRA-PVF. These are the legislative and political campaign arms of the organization and are not funded by regular membership dues. The big fight will be in the halls of Congress and that is the domain of NRA-ILA.

    Johnny. Sorry that happened. Let me know if the offer stands. It would be a big surprise to my brother who is a disabled vet and too cheap/poor to join.

    I don't know why I have never had a membership, I have no good excuse other than I was used to being broke as a college student etc.

    Seeing this changed my mind. If you can do this, I can at least cover mine.

    Add one more to the ranks.

    After reading this thread last night, I have decided to match thelaststand, mnrivrat, & Johnny Dollar's offer as well. I am willing to offer 4 individual one year memberships to the NRA as well. All you have to do is PM me your information. This is a first come, first served basis. I'll consider it my Christmas present to the group. What I need to know is:

    Personal Information
    Title:
    First Name:
    Middle:
    Last Name:
    Suffix:
    Gender:
    Date of birth: / /
    Required for Junior and Distinguished membership.

    Contact Information
    Country:
    Address:


    City:
    State/Province:
    Zip/Postal Code:
    Phone Number: US/Canadian Only
    E-mail Address:


    It's as simple as that. I will fill out the form on the NRA website and you will receive the benefits for 1 year. It looks like as of right now,All memberships are spoken for at this time. :D

    I cannot believe that there are generous members willing to donate memberships to NRA and no one is speaking up, I for 1 cannot wait to become a member.
