    AARP want seniors to turn in their guns!

    As an "Old Fart" I for one would not join AARP because they use your dues for Political lobbying on behalf of liberal issues. Now this again re-enforces my position on AARP!

    AARP back-stabbed us on Obamacare. I really don't like them either.

    Nothing good about AARP

    AARP is profoundly anti-gun, no matter what their rhetoric. Their leadership doesn't even offer a pretense of representing the wishes of their members, they just decide among themselves what they ought to support. I hope nobody thinks of them as a not-for-profit organization any more.

    Yeah, they were against it until they saw the millions of dollars payout by brokering insurance.

    AARP supports obamacare and gun control ... that's all I needed to know. Evidently, their concern for the well being of senior citizens is bottom on their list.

    If there is ever a group of citizens that needs help in leveling the playing field when it comes to personal safety & defense, it's senior citizens

    The AARP turned into a money making scheme years ago - their insurance racket and other products feast on the elderly in our country. This became shockingly obvious when they supported Obamacare despite it's clearly inevitable (and well documented) negative impact on Medicare.

    The AARP is just another liberal front organization.

    In my esteemed view AARP is right up there with USHA, United States Humane Association. USHA gives right about 1-1.5% of their donations to Animal Shelters across the board. Wow...that much?? The rest goes into their lavish pension plan, bonuses and salaries for the riff raff at the top of their phoney baloney outfit. If you wanna donate to animal organizations donate directly to your favorite and tell USHS to kiss off.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    I dropped my membership and they have their numbers secret I have tried to see if they are gaining or losing members but I can't find any numbers. If any of you come across numbers of members please give me shout out.
    Thanks Bill

    I think some folks say to join AARP to qualify for the Insurance benefits and then drop out but, keep the insurance.

    It is the reason I do not and will not belong to the AARP. I've told them so.

    I never joined aarpvaark in the first place. Then with their support for obamascare I was convinced they put their entity's success before their member's success. Eat it aarp!
