    My letter to the NRA

    Good Morning!

    NRA member #1477***** here.

    I attended NRA 2009 in Phoenix and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Being a Canadian with concealed carry permits, I don't get to carry a firearm as often as I would like to. Phoenix gave me the opportunity carry both openly and concealed, legally. I was even interviewed by Cam and appeared on NRA news.

    I enjoyed myself so much that I booked our airfare to Charlotte last July to attend NRA 2010. We have booked our hotel through the NRA and have purchased tickets to most of the major events.

    Imagine my disappointment when I learn from the website that I will not be able to carry during these events. There has been a lot of buzz on the various chat rooms that I am a member of. Many have canceled plans to attend or had their mind made up for them by this decision.

    I have searched through NC law and see nothing that prohibits legal carry during these events. No admission is charged. It's not a parade, demonstration, or funeral. I believe someone in the NRA made this decision and urge it be reversed.

    I look forward to attended NRA 2010 and being able to carry legally.

    Regards,



    I'll post their response when I get it.
    CCW permit holder for Idaho, Utah, Pennsylvania, Maine and New Hampshire. I can carry in your country but not my own.

    The convention center has a rule banning firearms.
    You can see the rule on page 18 of the PDF found at the following link:

    No doubt, they always dread and expect and fear that ONE bad sad ugly sensational incident that will be a mad mess in the press, in effect giving NRA-haters ammunition and free publicity to misuse to prove what they want it to prove. You can see those one-minute TV-news "stories" and the whining in your mind. Although, most of us know that such and similar legal normal gun gatherings are among the most statistically safe places around any city or community or town, for obvious reasons.

    It's worse than that

    Beyond informing people attending that it will be illegal to carry, the NRA will be putting everyone though metal detectors.

    So not only do they not trust you to carry, they donít trust you to not carry, and therefore will be searching you. Just about the way the Brady Campaign thinks it should be.

    No backbone, and loss of direction on the moral compass.

    Of all things, the NRA should never accept the disarming of its own membership at its own flagship, national event, else how is anyone supposed to take seriously its claim to be working for exactly that?

    The membership should never accept that. Imagine if zero attendees came. Not likely, given the head-in-sand trend we've got as a people, but it apparently would take exactly that to force the change and get their minds back on task.

    Palm to forehead. NRA, what are you thinking? I'm a member of the NRA, #1744*****. Thought this was a joke until I looked into it. Kind of like having the RNC Convention but you can't get in if you're a republican????

    When the convention was held here in Washington, they had it at the Puallup fair grounds. The fair grounds has always been a firearms restricted area. I didn't attend for that reason. The Washington Armsa collectors hold their gun show there, all firearms have to have plastic ties and no loaded magazines are alloud. I don't go to the gun show either.

    Time Warner is an extremely ANTI-GUN company.

    You would think the NRA would have their convention somewhere that you could carry.

    Insult to injury.

    Thanks NRA, way to stand up for 2A rights in NC...

    ...this is so sick. This organization is turning into a "progressive-liberal" group just as AARP has. If we don't retake this organization, it will be lost along with our 2nd Ammendment in the next decade. Are there enough of us to loudly speak up and demand the resignation of those responsible and take back the NRA?

    Yes, I know it's easier to rant and complain...but I really fear we are losing so much of what our country was built on - HONESTY, INTEGRITY, and FAITH! If we don't make a stand soon, what we believe is true will no longer exist.

    God Bless!
