    Where is the NRA ???

    I would like to know, where the NRA is?
    As of late, the NRA is awol, no comercials or anything.
    I remember when the English, had to turn in their weapons, the NRA had adds all over the place,
    warning Americans not to give up your guns.

    It seems the want the $$$ with no results. this seems very disapointing.
    V.P. Wayne LaPierre, isn't doing a job that we need.
    He seems to have gone off the deep end and doesn't seem to care.

    This is just a question. an the veiw that I see.

    They have gotten alot of push back from the ads (2 I believe) they have produced. Most of their work is spent lobbying congress and not in overall public relations.

    I'm pretty sure (or would like to think) they are assembling the biggest and best team of attorneys (adding to the ones they already have) to challenge any and all lunacy that may come out of this.

    I hope they are spending $$ in every off main street dive bar, where the Legislators hang out, buying drinks and reminding the Legislators that they will be voted out of office if they Jack Boot the Lawful Gun Owner over political gain. Reminding them that the gravy train will end. That would be time and money well spent, both at the federal and state elected official level.

    That IMO is like giving a life perserver to someone that can't swim. It is a fix that keeps their head above the water. For long term success you need to improve public relations and sway public opinion....which they are not.

    See response above. That only works as long as they fear not being elected becuasu of 2A issues. Sadly, most folks do not vote soley on how much a politician supports the 2A. That tactic is not going to work for much longer (2-4 more election cycles).

    I am supporting the NRA but they need to change wiht the times.

    1). Main stream media are refusing to sell commercial time to firearm related companies or pro 2A groups. This leaves youtube video releases, which they have done. In the end, those don't sway public opinion. The lefties throw rocks at it and the righties cheer. So, you won't see any adds because the liberal media are in Oblamers pocket.

    2). The NRA are in every judicial committee hearing and storming the legislators on the hill. That's where the real battle lies. They are also involved in the legal challenges to state laws. Also where the heart if the battle lies.

    I renewed my membership and they sent me a flashlight made in China, I sent the flashlight back and told them I did not want crap made in China and I would be better served if they would take the money and put towards protecting my rights and if they have any questions they can call me and do not send me a form letter

    Most politicians have nothing to gain for supporting this buffoonery. Remember the map of the US counties that was 90% red? The so called "Blue Dogs" such as Pryor in my state (who has declined to respond to my emails and letters other than the canned "I will support the 2nd Amendment that I know Arkansans hold dear". He knows what happened to Lincoln in the Obamacare fallout) won't dare put their careers on the line.

    I think your view of the NRA is incorrect and just because you don't see what they are doing, doesn't mean they must not be doing anything. The NRA has come a long way as a political animal and they know when/where to focus their efforts. They also realize that they aren't going to please everyone all the time and they don't have an unlimited budget to fight every battle on every front.

    To say that they have provided 'no results' is somewhat confusing. Aren't the libs basically down for the count on the insane AWB? Does the NRA get no credit for that as far as your concerned? Remember, popular opinion and media spin means basically nothing as far as immediate pending legislation goes. The lawmakers can vote any way they choose, irregardless of 'popular opinion' and then just deal with whatever fallout the fickle voters can remember come election time. You think the NRA isn't putting pressure on every legislator it can to keep this, and other potential bills, from passing?

    They are also working on the state level to fight the NY (as well as any other state that decides to pass illegal gun laws) legislation and challenge every aspect of the laws they've passed.

    Personally I'm kinda tired of everybody ragging on Mr. LaPierre and acting like he should somehow magically be able to stop everything (and therefore be somehow negligent for every gun law that passes or every dumb liberal media report that makes it to the airwaves). It OUR job folks, not the NRA. If we allow politicians to vote these things in and we don't vote, don't remain an active and positive force for the Second Amendment, then WE are to blame, not the NRA. Is Mr. LaPierre the best public speaker ever? No. Is he even remotely guilty of "not caring" or "going off the deep end"? Not even close.

    The NRA got a black eye over the Obama kids in an armed school commercial so may be lying low and working on the next step. Why anyone objected to a very valid point with the Obama kids is beyond me.

    Im sort of getting the feeling that a lot of the libs let Obamaism work them into such a froth that they are now willing to throw themselves under the bus relection wise to do whatever they think their mighty king wants.

    Its not like Obama won the election with a landslide but rather a tiny peeble that happened to roll down one side of the hill instead of the other. But after he got Obama care passed as a tax I think they believe he can pull this off too. Thats why they are doing much much crazier stuff faster while hes in there to magically make their dreams come true.

    The NRA does need a more public spin going. And you may be surprised how many do vote 2a now that they have seen the gun control machine in different states steamrolling stuff through clearly against their citizens wishes and rights.

    What you see the NRA doing is just the tip of the iceberg. It's what is going on below the surface, the things you don't see, that are what will win or lose the battle.

    ^^^^^^^ Very good post, that's what I'm talking about !

    I presume everyone who has posted on this thread has been calling and emailing their Legislators on a regular basis?

    We members strengthen what the NRA can do if we actively share in the responsibility of this ourselves.......you just can't pay your NRA dues and sit back and watch (not saying that anyone here is doing that, just sayin').

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
