This free membership is not a full regular membership. It does allow you to say you are an NRA (associate) member and gives them another body to count to help save our 2nd Amendment rights. Basically you receive an e-membership. Gets your foot in the door.
The regular $35.00 membership gets you so much more and, if you look around you can find that for $25.00.
If you go to http://artsthisnthat.com
click on NRA link you can sign up for $25.00.
Free is good and who doesn't send tons of e-mail when you join but, the benefits you get for your money are worth it.
I understand tight budget but, no one says you can't have one regular full membership and the rest of the family as Freedom associate members.
