It's probably in the interest of being absolutely sure that when the line is supposed to be cold that it is, for sure, cold. In other words in the interest of everyone's safety. Hardly a reason to label the NRA as "not being on our side". I'd be in favor of all safety measures that might prevent an ugly incident on the range and all the negative repercussions that would follow. Do you really need to carry a concealed weapon on the range anyway?

My wife and I usually go to the range early on weekday mornings. Quite often we are the only ones there at that time. For our own protection, we concealed carry.
If the club adopts the NRA recommendation, we will probably resign.
I thought the NRA was supposed to be on our side!
