    The NRA Finally in the News

    We all know that the NRA has been too quiet in Virginia lately, but they are finally in the news and are going to the State Capitol today:

    Hopefully this is not a Photo Op but that the NRA will actually contribute something of value--like lawyers ready to sue. The GOA and VCDL have left the NRA in the dust since the Nov 2019 VA elections concerning our 2A rights.

    They're a little late to the party, seems like. They should have jumped on this long ago. Be interesting to see what they do at this gathering.

    Maybe the NRA has been working behind the scenes? We really don't know....

    I heard these same comments 'bout the NRA when Chabot gun Club, one of few remaining gun clubs in the San Francisco Bay Area, faced a closure. Without any fan fare, the NRA hired and paid the legal firm that represented the gun club. Problem was that Chabot leased the range site from the East Bay Regional Park District. Over the years, and eventually the anti-firearms advocates, left leaning types, etc., were voted into the Park District Board and voted to close the range.

    I don't want to hear they're working behind the scene! I want to hear the NRA is kickin' a$$ and takin' names...like they USED TO...BEFORE Wayne!!! They keep sendin' me renewal notices and just got my "final notice" the other day. Was waitin' to hear what they were doin' in VA before I sent them another penny! They better pull somethin' off or they're gonna lose more members than they already have! I've always been a proponent for them, but recently have been thinkin' twice about my decision!

    In my case, they got till November to straighten out their act.

    That's when my membership runs out.

    OK, but I have a question for you. Can you give me some examples of the NRA "kicking' a$$ and takin' names...like they USED TO...BEFORE Wayne"?

    I have been a life member for 35 years and all I heard and still hear from non-members and alleged NRA members is: "the NRA does nothing, never will." Seems to me that since the establishment of the Institute for Legislative Action (circa mid 1970's) the NRA now is (or has morphed into) more of a political/lobbying organization and grass roots organizing organization, and with that comes the back room deals, political compromise, etc. I am at a loss to recall any Pre-LaPierre as you say "a** kick"....
