NRA Bashing

Why do so many people here think that the NRA is not a worthwhile organization? I have read more negative comments about the NRA in recent weeks on this sight than I ever heard in my life. Are there instances where gun owners object to their stance? Or is this political because the NRA generally supports republicans? Republicans generallyare stronger on that issue than democrats. Shouldn't they support people with the most pro gun backgrounds? What other reasons are there? any specifics?

Rabble, rabble, rabble.

Anywho, I'm with jrock on this one. It's an organization protecting our freedoms. Sure I don't agree with all their policies, such as no waiting periods for automatic weapons. But what the hay, if there's more good than bad, especially with the 2nd ammendment such a big issue, why not support the NRA? If you don't do something to stop your guns being taken then you can't b***h when they do get taken. Sit here and fuss about the NRA all you want, but you'll be sorry when your sitting over your dekes with a club and rocks.
Well put kms.
I just got this from my buddy. Maybe this will change your mind about gun control:

A Little Gun History Lesson

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind him of this history lesson.

With Guns............We Are 'Citizens'.
Without Them........We Are 'Subjects'.

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S. & knew that almost all households had guns.

18 for everything here in TN except pistol ammo, then you have to be 21.
I think the point that needs to be made here is that everyone has their own opinions and nobody in here is going to change our minds. You can fuss, fight, and quabble all you want, but in the end we are all stuborn hunters who's minds won't be changed.
Tom I agree with you. But now that we're all adults no one is changing our minds. We won't change any captainduckheads or wackemstackem's (not trying to call anyone out, just using you as examples) opinion any more than they will change your's or my opinion. Childrens' minds are easily manipulated, but once you reach adulthood you get to be stubborn as an ox.
It seems in our fussing about the second amendment we forgot about the one before it, the first amendment.

Anyone that votes the way the NRA directs them is a **** idiot.
Most people don't react well when you call them a**** idiot. Maybe you should start using some tact there buddy. Think about what you say before you just blurt it out there.
Not trying to start an arguement here or anything, but what's the big deal if you're waiting for someone to break in? What's the difference in having ammo designed for a break in and a gun designed for it? They have home defense shotguns too, isn't that the same principle? If someone breaks in I want a load that's going to put them down to where they aren't getting up. Buckshot is usually good for that, I don't know about those flechettes though. If you're going to shoot someone breaking in you better kill them. If you don't then they will find some technicality to sue you on, like being injured. It may sound really harsh, but it's a sad truth in todays society where people sue and win for spilling hot coffee on themselves.
I agree with you rmh, but it would be real hard to get the 2nd ammendment repealed. It takes a 3/4 majority in both the house and senate if my memory serves me right. That's a huge number, and until the whole senate and house turns liberal we should be okay. That doesn't mean we shouldn't stand up for our rights. When the 3/4 majority is reached, then it's too late to stand up for the 2nd ammendment. The earlier you help educate people about it the longer we will keep it. Who knows, someone you educate on guns could one day be part of the house or senate that votes on you keeping your firearms.
