I've gotten numerous calls, mostly 'my call screener' - the answering machine takes care of it. Though NRA does good work, I really do not like the high pressure tactic of 'send in your money or the government will take your guns!'
Yes it's possible, but hopefully my vote counts as much as a donation.
Know the candidates.

I don't get calls from the NRA, I'am a life member if that's any help.

I haven't gotten a call in quite a while. If they do, they will get my call screener too.

I've never gotten a call from the NRA. I do get a lot of mail, however.
But so what?
If you don't like the mail, you can contact them and have it stop. I have friends who have done this.
As far as spending money that could be spent on other things, do you really think they would make the mailings if they spent more than the contributions they received from the mailings?
I know that they are aggressive on their mailings. They send a survey or something else innocent and they always seem to end with them asking for money.
But that doesn't bother me. First, they do some good work. I don't agree with everything but for the most part they do good work.
Second, I'm a big boy. I can throw away the mailings if I don't want to send money in. As far as the phone calls, if you don't want them, call the number shown by Rob and be done with it.

I've never got any calls, but then again nobody gets my home number.

Yep, it is a call center, not NRA employees. Pro telemarketers contracted out. I've asked.

I still get plenty of mail solicitations, though.

But getting sometimes three pieces of their junk mail in one day is an anoyance to me and many others. How can anyone think that multiple junk mail is good business practice. It cost to produce this junk mail, it cost to mail this junk mail and if you throw it away without looking at it they gained nothing but throwing that amount of money away. I just think there are better ways to gain members without filling my landfill in my state with unopen NRA junk mail.

I don't care about getting junk mail (although I do hate to see them waste money, but overall it must be profitable or they wouldn't do it). I just refuse to be forced into "opting out" of things or else it costs me money. I'll tell you when I want to give you money. But I actually appreciate junk mail, it pays a lot of bills for the post office. Without it, it would cost us $2 to mail a letter.

Never called...canceled the 'land line' a year ago...only use a cell now! I'm sure that has something to do with it...I get no 'sales' call now either...

I haven't been getting any calls from the NRA, just some rather strange emails from someone claiming to be the NRA. I call them strange because most email from them makes it past my junk mail filter, these haven't.
