If the NRA sells us out Friday I am through supporting them. They are paid to represent us, the gun owner, not roll over to Congress. No more money from me.

I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.
I agree...I can't imagine they are planning to do so. That would most certainly illicit the same response from a vast majority of their supporters. I am very interested in how they respond and I think taking a week to respond was a prudent move. This ain't their first rodeo.

I don't think you'll see a sell out by the NRA. As BugDude said, this isn't their first battle, and it won't be their last.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

There was recently a poll regarding whether or not you are an NRA member. At the time I said no. I am seriously reconsidering that position. The discussion tomorrow will likely put my position in cement. For what its worth, I also made a small donation to the Grass Roots organization in my state (GRNC) yesterday. Gift buying has all but wiped me out right now, but I still want to do what I can.
I wish all my allies thought exactly the way I do but so long as they keep their muzzles pointed in the same general direction I'll stand by their side.

Here is part of the NRA's problem this time around. They have to show some kind of concern and offer some types of solutions to the underlying causes in our society that caused the Sandy Hook incident and other incidents of like kind.
If they turn a blind eye that would be a bad thing. If they take a no give stance that will also be bad.
They need to show they are part of the solution.
What they decide to do is beyond me...but here's hoping............................................ .................................
I can't imagine the NRA is dumb enough to bite the hand that feeds it. That being said, I fully expect them to give concessions on "Evil black rifles".
They'll do whatever will end up with them still getting money.
I will remain in support of the NRA...
It's a tough job, but that's why they get the very big bucks.
I'm hoping the NRA makes a rather sizable donation to a mental health awareness organization as part of whatever their solution is.

I hope they cant be bought! This is a very sensitive situation that requires being sensitive but also sensable and firm. Taking rifles away would make us as a nation more suseptable to invasion, and make it harder to fight in the event of anarchy, or mob running the streets, whatever the case may be.
I'm confident that the NRA will do the right thing. I would have liked a members only email, rather than the silence, to give us all a heads up, but opsec is important at times like this.
I for one don't think we need to concede any ground, as far as the 2nd Amendment goes. It's not necessary, because it wouldn't solve anything. Remember, this shooter stole weapons that were lawfully purchased to commit these horrible crimes.
Maybe we should support legislation for tax incentives for gun safes, pistol safes and firearms training. Is that something we could all get behind? I personally wouldn't mind the closing of the gun show loopholes, because of the hundreds of gun shows I go to, I rarely ever purchase anything anyway. But that's just my opinion, and one I wouldn't push on anyone else.

You know what? If I was a New World Order loving socialist, I would make it my sole endeavor to infiltrate the NRA,stay in the background nice and quiet like, let the minor stuff pass, and then when the one thing that came up on the table that could change gun ownership as we know it for every single American, I would jump in the middle of the pack and do my best to insure that my master was served.
Just a thought.
