    So I just became a Life Member of the NRA with the sponsorship of another Life member that I'll leave nameless so as to not fill his PM box, but I truly appreciate his help.

    I now want to do the same for others.

    Here's the DEAL!!!...

    An NRA Life Membership usually requires a $1,000.00 donation to the NRA... Every once in a while they'll do a $500 Life Member deal...

    Currently, if you have another Life Member Sponsor you, you can get an NRA LIFE MEMBERSHIP for just $300!!!! (That's the going rate for 1 single BCG or 300 rounds of 5.56 at the gougers!)

    NOW is the time to do it! It's never been more critical than now.

    Not tomorrow, not next week... Don't "wait and see" what happens..

    I can't keep up with the PM's... Here's the info below... FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT... It's time, and maybe the last chance, to put up or shut up.... I know it's some $$$ for a lot of folks, but it may be the best money you've ever spent!

    Just PM me, and I'll give you the info you'll need to get the $300 NRA Life Membership deal!

    It sounds like a good plan and 2 weeks ago, I would have considered it.
    However, right now I think I'm better served waiting to see what they say at the press conference tomorrow.

    I may well cancel my membership depending on what they say.

    What do you think is the NRA's strongest negotiating point?

    It's their membership levels.

    If they don't feel like they can come out with a hard-line, no compromise stance, it's only because they don't feel like they have the membership levels to warrant such a position.

    The strength of the NRA (the strength of any advocacy group) is heavily based on the number of members it has. Waiting for an advocacy group to demonstrate its strength before joining is like waiting to put gas in the empty tank of a car until you can see how fast it will go. It ain't goin' nowhere with an empty tank.

    ^^^This is so sad (and infuriating) to here from a fellow american, and especially from a fellow gun owner. The time to fight is now, not after you already been beaten.

    Some will sit back and "wait for their statement", some will complain about their leadership. Others get in the fight from any and every front possible.

    If you do nothing at all, and our rights are infringed, or all together taken away you have no one, not the Republicans, not the NRA, not the Tes Party, no one blame but yourself.

    If you aren't joining the largest, most powerful pro-2A organization on the planet.. then you better darn well be doing SOMETHING to join the fight. If not, you're just as bad as (IMO worse) than the folks that would ban all guns and negate the 2nd Amendment.

    But as you know... It's a free country.

    (at least for a little while longer)

    I am currently a member. I am very interested in this offer. But I see nothing wrong with SigMic waiting to see what their response will be to this, before deciding if my money might be better spent elsewhere in this fight.

    I seriously DOUBT that they're going to cave, or offer up some sort of "compromise-that-isn't." But as short on money as I am at the moment, I see no harm in waiting a few hours....

    ETA: I do think that waiting a while to come out and respond was the right thing to do - both morally and from a "tactical" standpoint.

    They did come out with their response and they blame video games(which flies in the face of every single study done on the subject), movies(same thing as video games), and media. They absolutely have an argument with the media, being that they immortalize the shooter with showing his entire life and endlessly saying his name. They state that every school should have a police officer, which is well and good but who pays for it? Schools don't have the money now to educate students but they're supposed to pay $50,000+ a year for an officer?

    OK, would someone kindly sponsor me? I'm currently an annual member but it's time to upgrade that. Pending approval from the wife, of course.

    I'm currently working on gift membership for 4 family members. I think if we can double or triple the number of members in the next few weeks it will send a clear message.

    Thanks to Ride, I got my life membership and donated an additional $100 to the NRA's school protection fund. I appreciate it. If you're thinking of a way to contribute to our cause in the wake of sandyhook, I think this is a good way, and it works just as Ride has stated.

    I truly do not mean anything by this comment, but isn't the whole point of being a member to help financially support the NRA? You life time guys, do you make it a point to donate on a regular basis?

    I re-up every year because it works out to be more money.

    Good job, gentlemen.
    I am a Life Member and my wife is an Endowment Member.
    Which is appropriate, because she is well-endowed. :)

    I certainly appreciate the post about the discount. But I'm going to continue to renew every five years, I really don't care what it costs, knowing that I'm supporting a good cause.

    I am an NRA member already but right now that $300 is best spent in what will soon be called 'pre-ban' items. :(

    Does anyone know if I can apply what I already paid in dues toward the LT membership or do I lose it?

    First of all, the NRA is encouraging volunteers to give their time to do this. I'm sure there are a LOT of retired police and military who would donate their time to protect schools if given the chance.

    Second, even if ZERO volunteers stepped up to the plate and it cost $6.8 billion to put a cop in every school – as anti-gun politicians and the media claim, which I doubt – do you really believe that protecting our kids in our schools isn't "worth" ONE HALF OF ONE PERCENT OF THE $1 TRILLION DEFICIT OBAMA RACKED UP LAST YEAR ALONE?

    If so, I would say your priorities are a bit out of whack.

    It's nearly impossible to ignore the 400 pound gorilla in the room. Make it a 600 pound gorilla breathing down your neck and try to not notice. That's how membership in the nra works.

    Not supporting the NRA now despite the fact you may not totally agree with everything they say is not going to help the core issue of defending your 2nd lamendment rights. The bottom line is the NRA supports your right to self defense and fire arms ownership. You cannot argue that. Please help to maintain our freedom.

    They don't even pony up the money to actually educate the children properly, yet they have bodyguard money? Since it's so easy to get this money then they need to go ahead and triple the money and run schools properly, instead of on a shoe string budget.
