Well I really just wanted to stir up some conversation on this while I was making these decisions. The NRA has been losing ground the last 50 years, and I am not sure a 4 year span without an AWB, or Heller really represents a reversal of that trend. They are sucking up most of the money and I really don't see much as a result. Maybe slowing the tide of emotional legislation with compromises is enough for some.

What about a million rifleman march?
How effective would that be? Would one million people show up to Washington? More? How about a march from Concord to Boston?

NRA not culpable in forming the general public's view on firearms? I would definitely say without reservation that if they have not had a significant effect on the public's view of firearms they have failed miserably.
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF. Second Amendment Foundation is a solid alternative.
