  •  Yep.. the NRA is simply not rational enough (6+ / 0-)

    to speak for me.

    I got a call from them asking if I supported the U.N. taking my Guns away. I said, "Ummm I think you called the wrong house". They said;" Isn't this xxxx and aren't you a registered gun owner" (Not sure how they got my name). I said;" Well, yeah, but you should know that first of all the U.N. thing is complete bullshit, second of all I am a Liberal Democrat and Third, that I support strict Gun Control measures".

    All I heard from the other was (CLICK).

    Haven't received another call from those whacknuts since. ;-)

    •  Oh the NRA is indeed rational, but only about what (1+ / 0-)

      it takes to fill the coffers of the gun manufacturers (and themselves).

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

    •  registered gun owner? (0+ / 0-)

      how so?

      and that implies they have been given, stolen, hacked a database, if by 'registered you mean by a gubmint, not a gun mfg warranty card...and that is one of the NRA's biggest fear mongering claims, that registration means your info is available and not restricted.
        And I know the stunt by the newspaper getting the info from a local sheriff I think it was, and printing it, ccw permits iirc.

        And if they are calling because they say you are a registered owner according to an access limited gubmint database, that seems to be
      1. self serving

      2. illegal and should be investigated.

      3. something that needs fixing

      so, how registered?

      •  Good question.... (0+ / 0-)

        It was a few years ago so I have no idea how they got my name but I can only assume it was when I bought and registered my gun. You know filled out the paperwork, did my 10 day wait period and so on.

        It could have been any number of things. I thought it was weird at the time but, I haven't had any calls since so I figure that is that.
