Only somebody with the character of an OSTRICH would think this is a B-A-D idea. Did you not see all of the antigun votes listed above? Harry Reid is exactly like TOM DASCHLE was in the Senate. An antigun chameleon able to blend in with anybody anytime, but owing his loyalty to the antigun LEFT!
remember when a lot of aarp members bailed out during the obamacare debate. well Im a nra member that was thinking of being a lifetime member is in doubt now. If the board members decide to play games with politicians,the game will be lost . A lot of members will bail ship,just like the aarp members did.
Yep, i saw the stuff that you posted. Most of it means nothing at all.
I wonder about those who claim to be NRA members but still have no idea how the NRA works or what it stands for. Methinks that the vast majority of the NRA bashers are not and have never been, NRA members.
I can no longer support the National Quisling Association.

Completely agreed. The NRA has secured many important and major wins for us in the past decade. The tide has really turned on gun control and we have the NRA to thank for that. They know what they're doing.I wonder about those who claim to be NRA members but still have no idea how the NRA works or what it stands for.
There's a very good reason they don't waste political and financial capital on window-dressing, or feel-good, meaningless actions like backing a marginalized figure like Angle. This is the Big Leagues, not playtime clubhouse in the backyard. If the best option going forward is backing Reid, fine. Obama himself in a live broadcast interview said, "There is no will in Washington for enacting gun control." It's off the table.
And, going forward, if the Senate Majority Leader owes the NRA some huge favors, it improves our position immeasurably. Having the gratitude of Angle would be nice, I guess, but she has zero power and even less influence. That wouldn't change even if she wins her bid for a Senate seat. There's no upside in backing her whatsoever. Politics ain't pretty.

The list of alleged Harry Reid transgressions posted in the OP looks much like this one made up by redstates and their buds at GOA.
NRA Now Leans Toward Endorsing Harry Reid | RedState
Erick Erickson gets wrapped around tha axle with stuff like flag burning, prayer in schools and gay marriage. If an organization does not support all of redstates far out agenda then that organization gets attacked.
is anyone here saying that they support Harry Reid?
forget the NRA issue, judge this on Reid's record. I am actively supporting his opposition. He has shown that he will do what ever it takes to pass bills that he wants passed weather they are constitutional or not, weather they fallow the house rules or not. I can not support this man or any organisations that support him. Even if you receive a concession from a snake, you are still in bed with a snake.

There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.

I support Harry Reid's re-election bid.
First: Harry Reid is not in the US house, he is in the US senate.
Second: Prove to me that anything this congress has passed is unconstitutional.
I for one find it very interesting that just before and soon after EVERY Second Amendment VICTORY
we find people posting Ad hominem attacks on the NRA on all of the Gun Forums.
I will stick with the NRA and simply ask of you all -
What have YOU done to Support the 2A lately?

"If I walk in the woods, I feel much more comfortable carrying a gun. What if you meet a bear in the woods that's going to attack you? You shoot it."
I am not a Reid fan either, but I can understand why the NRA would be doing this. Has Reid supported firearms in the past? No, but he will be indebted to the NRA if he keeps his seat and his tenure means power. A freshman will not have power out of the gate and the next couple of years are very important to the health of our country and the issue we all support; Firearm ownership. If Ried loses, the alternative is very ugly and the NRA (gun owners) will stand to lose a lot of ground in a very short amount of time. This is a tactical move that makes sense, although I dont like the taste. Dont sell the NRA short, they have done a lot for all of us in the past whether we like them or not, they are fighting the good fight. I too have been so mad at them I wanted to cut off my nose, but when I remove the emotion, I know they are right.

Here's my sentiment.
1) I think for myself, not who endorses anyone
2) I wouldn't vote for Harry Reid if you offerred me a $1 mil.
