The NRA doesn't take information beyond name and address, which is available publicly anyway.. You can be a member under "Codename Cheezewiz" using a PO box address if you are that paranoid

Some people don’t want to be associated with any particular group.

I donate frequently several times a year to the NRA but not a member. Then I get solicitations from the NRA and other gun groups, so they find out somehow.

I’m not the one that thinks gun owners should be forced join gun groups.
If someone doesn’t want to join, so what. Calling people paranoid for legitimate concerns isn’t the way to get people to join the NRA for sure

It doesn't matter whether the people in power are left, right, or somewhere else, the bottom line is that, ultimately, people that disagree with them, and have guns ARE a threat to their power, and their safety.

Bottom line is if/when the forces of government come for you, for what ever reason they feel acceptable, if there are no guns in your hands, resistance is a LOT less effective.

If every time the Sturmtruppen raided an apartment block to "relocate" people a couple of them had been shot, things might have worked out differently.

here's the point, you cannot be a successful dictator if the people retain both the will and the arms to resist. So, while they can call it anything they want, (public safety is the preferred stalking horse), the reality is that its their own safety they are concerned about, NOT ours.

They don't care about criminals preying on us with guns (no matter what they say in public), what they want is to prevent US from resisting THEM, and their goals.

Those pesky colonial colonists grumbled and protested at the Crown's taxes, and lack of a voice in government. But we didn't FIGHT, until the Crown tried to seize our guns. And once the fight started, we didn't quit.
That's a darn fine post there 44 AMP.
