We dropped them a year after we joined because of their stand on firearms.

I also send their postage paid envelopes back to them "Empty."
I load their envelopes with enough newpaper clippings to take it to the next higher postage cost.
A good way to hit them in the pocketbook, is to put as much old newspaper or such in their postage paid envelope, then mail it. The extra weight adds to the cost of postage they have to pay.

Why not send some flattened bullets encased in cardboard. That way you make a statment about guns as well as raise their postage.
I have refused to join them due to their stand on other issues. I wasn't aware of their anti2A views, but then, given their other positions, I'm not surprised. Since I'm 56, I have thought about just going ahead and joining, but now there's no [Edited] way!

I considered joining, until I heard about their anti 2nd Amendment stance from this forum.
I've been getting junk mail from those Bozos for years now. It goes straight into the [Edited]. Even before I knew of their anti gun position I wouldn't join. It's for "old people".

My thoughts behind this was to use AARPs money to send a message at no cost to us, not to stop mailings, at least a few people in the office might read it.
After all it could even catch on if enough people send in one every time they get a mailing from them, just copy and send it. So what is it going to cost you, a little ink and two minutes to print and send it, what could be simpler?
If there is something in it you don’t like or want to add to it, change it as long as it is accurate.
Just remember this is how the anti gun people got their way in the past. The only difference is the truth is on our side!
I take their trash and any other trash I can stuff in their postage paid envelope, tape it closed and mail it back. Last time I managed to get in just a little over 4 ounces. I'm going to check with the Post Office to see if I tape the envelope to a brick, will it ship at their expense.
