For those gun owners who are not yet members, the NRA is having a special on membership.

https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/signup.asp?campaignid=prospect_tag...

They also sell various other items, holsters, etc, etc, and even books for those who need to learn
more about the use of weapons and, especially, safeties. Their concealed carry book would probably
provide the answers to those 'special circumstances' you may encounter!

Anyone who joins the NRA right now is a friggin' idiot.  If there was
ever an organization that had gone awry, this is it.  Depending on the
poll, between 70 and 90% of the American people want mandated
background checks on all gun sales and yet the NRA vehemently opposes.

I venture to guess that many members will cancel or allow their
memberships to lapse after this round of stupid lunacy.

-------------------------------------------

It's not the members.  74% of the NRA membership support universal
background checks.   The nut case is Wayne LaPierre who happens to get
all the media publicity.  BTW ... he's not even the President of the
NRA.  He performs the roll of CEO and is the national spokesman and
loud mouth.  Problem is he doesn't present membership views ... only
his own.

As often said, "Don't judge a book by it's cover".

I am beyond disgusted with the group of Republicans who refuse to even
hold a simple vote and are threatening to filibuster any gun control
bill.  They are claiming that the Democrats might try to sneak in a
couple of amendments that they couldn't support, so therefore  no
vote.
Can't they read?   If they don't like the bill vote no.   But at least
do your jobs and vote.

I wonder why, if the members themselves are overwhelmingly okay with
background checks, that the bigwigs aren't. I'm going to guess that it's
the politicians as usual getting in the way.

-------------------------------------------

I am not a NRA member, so I don't know.   I am sure the gun
manufacturers have influence and so do some of the politicians that
represent hard core "red" states.   They can defend the right to high
capacity magazines, "***" type guns, etc.,  and although I
personally don't see any need for them, I can at least understand
their arguments.   But a background check to purchase a gun?   That
should be a no-brainer.

I think the goal is to block any legislation that the current
administration is pushing. I might be wrong.

As you well know, Democrats are sneaky. I support background checks, but not a lot of the bullshit
that's in the Maryland approach.

There seems to be some doubt about the Republican filibuster. I like the idea of bringing it to a
vote.

"If you filibuster, you spare vulnerable Democrats who are up for reelection next year the sweatiest
moment of all an up-or-down final vote on the bill. You might very well get a united GOP caucus
opposing that, which means it would take only six Democratic votes to kill the whole thing and
utterly humiliate Obama. Worth a gamble? Besides Pryor and Begich, you ve got a fair shot at getting
Baucus, Landrieu, and Kay Hagan. Then you only need one more. Mark Warner? Jeanne Shaheen? Maybe Jay
Rockefeller, who s retiring? The odds are slim that Reid can t hold 51 together in the name of not
turning Obama s gun-control push into a fiasco, but since, as Maguire says, the bill would almost
certainly be DOA in the House, you have little to lose by making him try. In fact, if you re worried
about O using the obstructionist Republicans talking point to hurt the GOP next year, you could
argue that it s better to let the bill pass the Senate and then die in the House, since that
complicates Obama s message."

He's not the president of the NRA, but the president of the NRA is no
better.

The gun manufactures have more than influence. They run the show,
which has changed for the NRA. It used to be much more member driven.

---------------------------------------------

That's not the job they were elected and are paid to do.   Vote NO if
you must .... but vote.
All they are doing is protecting their own asses so come election time
they can get re-elected.
I think it's going to backfire on them this time.   Even those who are
usually hard to starboard are disgusted.
(notice the boating content?)

Seems appropriate herring is pimping for the
