    NRA or NAGR?

    Considering joining up with a pro-gun club to support our rights. I'm looking for fellow forum members opinions on which one of these groups would be better to join. I do know that the NAGR is against ANY new gun laws, and the NRA, I believe is gonna give in a little bit, JMO. The NRA prob has the bigger influence of the two. Chime in, which organization would you lean to, if you have never belonged to either one?

    The best answer is both. (As well as the Gun Owners of America) The more people we have fighting for our rights the better.

    If you have to pick one I'd side with the NRA. They have far more influence with politicians than all the other groups combined. Their budget is much higher allowing them to hire the best lobbyists and organizers in the game. You get more bang for your buck with them. Yes, they will at times give a little but only when it is completely necessary. Sometimes the situation is such that there are going to be bills passed that we don't like, at times like that the NRA is great at convincing lawmakers to go with the least objectionable option. It may not sit well with our sensitivities but when you understand how the game is played in Washington you see that it is the only way to be successful. Those with a "my way is the only way" philosophy are often totally ignored by the more moderate members of Congress that end up actually making the decisions in close votes.

    The reason you dont see people with signs saying "Stop the NAGR!" is because they dont have influence.

    I'm a life member in the NRA and they have provided me with my insurance for both self defense and instructor professional lib. The other group is the Armed Citizen Legal Defense Network if you carry. As for NAGR, I'm not sure?

    Donít forget to join your local or statewide gun rights groups along with the NRA.

    I do hope that I am wrong but a have a gut feeling the NRA is going to go soft on a possible ban among other things.

    I'm a life member of the NRA. I sometimes don't like all the fund raising mailings, but I believe they are the most influential organization fighting for our rights. I heard just a little while ago on Bill O'Reilly that the NRA is currently gaining 8,000 new members per day.

    Crowman, I don't know exactly what the NRA is planning but have been told that they are going to draw a line in the sand with the 10 round capacity issue. Sounds like they're planning on telling law makers that if they vote for such a measure they'll be fighting the full weight of the NRA from then on.

    I think a good indicator of what the NRA has been doing for the last few days can be seen in WV Senator Joe Manchin. In the immediate wake of Newtown he appeared to be on board with the gun grabbers. Today he is saying he is proud of the NRA and does not support banning anything, but merely having a talk about what would be sensible to prevent such things from happening again. I'm positive he didn't come to see the light all on his own.

    I'll renounce my NRA membership if they concede anything.
