I've been a member of the NRA since the early 80's and a life member since the mid 80's. While I don't agree with everything they say/do. I realize that without a strong, united voice fighting for our rights, we will lose them.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

Not everyone is a fan of the NRA's actions, but they're the most influential of the gun rights groups at a Federal level. It's good news that they've had 500,000 new members in the last few months, but it should really be a lot more considering how many gun owners are out there.
Another really good organization is the Second Amendment Foundation. They're the ones who lead the way when it comes to legal battles...
