  •  I can't support the NRA (13+ / 0-)

    I no longer hunt, I never enjoyed the "shooting" part, just watching my girl bound through the bushes and jump into ponds.

    But I never supported the NRA.  First of all, their stance upon guns is ridiculous and harmful.  I can't understand why people complain about a 30 day waiting period and thorough background check.  I had a more thorough background check to practice law than I did to own a gun.  And, anyone that NEEDS a gun within 30 days?  Well, THAT person really "needs" some help, whether police for protection or medical-psychological care to help in place of a weapon.

    And, the NRA has extended political arguments far beyond their ridiculous, extreme views on guns to nearly every ultra-conservative and corporate righ-wing political issue.

    Nope, never did support them and will actively oppose them.

    Blessed are the peacemakers, the poor, the meek and the sick. Message to Repug Fundies: "DO you really wonder "what would Jesus do?" I didn't think so.

      messages regarding your contempt for their organization.
      You can leave a message anonymously or with your name and
      address.  I have told them that I will start today to find like minded citizens and work with them to limit their strangle hold on our political process.  I have pointed out that as a former member I regard them as an enemy of reasonable rights regarding the 2nd amendment.  I hold them responsible for the increasing gun violence in our country and specifically for the most recent tragedy.  Point out that a percentage of their membership in the 70% range believe that we need more control over the insane proliferation of firearms in this country and that these members will be identified and appealed to to once and for all to unmask the real agenda of the NRA.
