Should I Join The NRA?

I’m a big advocate for putting your money behind the causes you care about. Different from the charities that that you support some political/social causes need money for advertising to put the word out and rally like minded folks. Not shopping at Target, refusing to give HBO a dime of my money, eating at Chick fil A, whatever I can do without sacrificing too much comfort and convenience, I’m there.

The Second Amendment is the most at risk freedom we have today. That senile old bat Ruth B. Ginsburg, while sullying the good name of the Supreme Court and violating
the basic canons of the judiciary by attacking Trump, she did provide us with the progressive dream target sheet. Number one on that list was overturning Heller, a close second was Citizens United. Her views are simple, the Second Amendment only applies to a “well regulated militia” and not to private citizens. One or two more like minded loons on the bench and we will all be criminals for possessing firearms.

Some of the best commercials of late are those put out by the NRA. The Dana Loesch one from last year was great. They came out with 2 more this week, take a look;



OK, I don’t hunt, I don’t go to the range regularly (haven’t fired a gun since I retired 9 years ago) and I don’t buy new guns on a regular basis. There about 3 handguns in my house, handy if a violent attacker broke in, I am not a big gun user.

But I do understand how basic the Second Amendment is to our history, our heritage and our way of life, and it is a freedom I value even though I do not exercise that right regularly.

I’m thinking of joining the NRA because they need my support and my dollars. No, I probably don’t support all of their ideas. I like background checks and the ability to track bought weapons but I don’t like this freedom rescinded just because you are on some dopey government list. I would like to see these commercials aired on all TV stations at all hours because their message is important. A free T shirt thrown in might seal the deal but I could live with just an assuaged conscience. Any other perks worth noting?

    The fact that an NRA membership means I can enlist them to get a lawyer if I somehow get railroaded in “The People’s Republic of Connecticut” makes that membership worth its weight in gold to me as someone that a carry¬†licensed. Most cops are not going to give you crap about having the permit, but some of them are just assholes.
