    How about a synopsis of the points/problems in the argument?

    For the annual membership all you get is a massive bunch of junk
    mail! Let's face it how many seniors are going to be pro second
    when some smooth talking person spends time with them doing
    a survey? I'll spend my cash on NRA membership instead and you can join this AARP at 50.I didn't think I was old?

    I'm with Stetson. I'll put my money with the NRA. We know what they do for us.

    The AARP started this crap a while back. During the Clinton admin they sent my Dad something, as he had been a member for years. I don't know exactly what he read in their literature, maybe it was an article in their magazine that he used to get.

    Anyway, they were obviously anti-gun. He had been a member for years, but when he found out their position, he told them to shove it up their butts. He tells everyone about it when it comes up in conversation, as we all should.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    I would be interested in how those survey questions were phrased if such a high percentage supported them.

    In any case, it must be a great feeling for them to know they are helping to disarm and make helpless their membership.

    A couple conservative alternatives to AARP:

    NASCON

    I wrote AARP some time ago - returning a junk mail and told them not to send me more stuff as I was not impressed with their anti gun stance.

    It worked such that I rarely get anything from them now.

    I quit the AARP years ago because of their stand on other issues. Almost wish I was a member now so I could quit them again!!! What a bunch of self-righteous horses backsides!

    How stupid can they be? I'm one of the 'elderly', and I am never a prisoner in my home - I exercise my 2nd Amendment Rights!!!

    as for organizations, the ones I listed were started by Women the source of the AARP letter. Good for them and all of us.

    Yes, it is still important to be a Member of the following for all of us both female and male:

    - NRA
    - GOA
    - SAF
    - RKBA
    - State - Rifle / Rifle / Shooting Sports Associations
    - Local City/County Clubs

    My wife joined the Second Amendment Sisters and bought a whole family membership. They are a top notch organization. I think it is important for lawmakers to know that there are organized women out there who support the 2A also.

    As far as the AARP goes. My father had the same experience as several of yours did. He belonged to AARP for years and then learned of their anti gun stand. (They do not openly flaunt that stand by the way because they know it would cost them members) and he canceled his membership right away. He also tells everyone he can about their anti gun stand.

    And yet another reason not to get old.

    I joined a long time ago - then wised up and quit them due to their agenda. I'd rather forgo the discounts.
