As fun as it would be to mess with her, the poster who said she was dangerous is entirely correct. She could claim harassment on anything other than perfect manners, and maybe that as well (witness Boxer and "Ma'am").
Agreed. As proud as I am to be part of the NRA, I would definitely keep it out of the corporate environment. Put on your business face for the office; keep your personal life entirely separate whereever possible. It's not worth compromising your job and future job opportunities just because you offended someone.
I'm quite familiar with those types. Two years ago, I was working in one of the walk in clinics in Walgreens. Some women from corporate came in, and I was soon asked to meet with them in one room. They had another woman from corporate on speaker phone. They started talking to me about some complaints that they has (all were garbage). One was that I used the internet for personal use. I said yes, but everyone in the clinics did, since we were seeing around 2-4 patients in a 12 hour shift, and we were bored out of our minds (one of the people temporarily made a manager while our boss was recovering from a heart attack ran her part time business online at work). Then they said "But you look at GUN sites!" I tried to explain that shooting was a hobby, but they would have none of it. Needless to say, I was terminated.

If I were to have an NRA sticker at work I would be the least threatening guy here. We are a bastion of crazy militia wannabes.
Just for fun I think I would use all kinds of innocent phrases around her:
Shoot the breeze.
Keep your powder dry.
Lock, stock and barrel.
Shooting blanks. (OK maybe not that one)
All these are gun terms that have been placed in common use. If she objects, especially in front of coworkers, paint HER as the crazy one.
