Jim,
It’s wasn’t about the NRA you should’ve seen the News piece. It was intended for the Police in the area and then civilians asked if they could get the same discount. It’s about defending yourself in this country and not losing your rights, Has nothing to do with the NRA. I am a supporter of our freedom’s and would put my life an the line again and again to keep this country safe from criminals and others trying to destroy the freedoms and safety we have.
Live free or die trying to defend those that cannot defend themselves.

Bill.

Bill,
My apologies. I did not see the article when I clicked on the “HERE:”, as all I got was a bunch of garbage adds that related to nothing about what it was intended to be. I do agree with defending myself and our country, for our rights as we see. I am a retired vet, on disability after 20+ years in the military, and would do it again to keep us and ours safe . My own sentiments about the NRA is best not expressed here.

Jim,
No apologies necessary and thanks for your service. I did 15 in the Army and medically retired a few years ago. I am a supporter of our rights but feel the NRA has become more of a self serving organization as many do. The people of this nation have to stand up for their rights by staying informed and staying active in their communities.
Time to smoke a brisket, have a beer or two, and enjoy the warm sunny day, have a good one Jim and hope you heal well.
Weather is outstanding in New Mexico enjoy while it lasts.

Bull,
You are absolutely correct about the NRA. I joined the NRA this past year, NOT to support it but to understand it fully. The NRA is a completely self serving organization bent on the politics of fear and of crony-capitalism. As a lifetime gun owner and flaming Liberal, the NRA is CLUELESS in how to cultivate understanding, much less support, of the majority of this country.

FWIW, I to am a disabled vet, currently at 50%.

I agree Mike,
Keep your enemies close, I am 100% VA. Me and my 1911 out in the world can be considered disturbing to some.
I would hope it made others feel a little safer.

If it weren’t for the NRA, the pro crime criminal coddlers would have them totally in control. NRA is all we have. If you have a better idea, lets hear it. Don’t say call the police. My experience is time the response with a calendar if they show at all.

Topa,
I don’t deny they are about the only ones really doing anything, that is exactly why people need to get more involved in their communities and government. Get out there and make sure that your gun rights aren’t the only rights being taken away. Carry your gun openly and safely otherwise why have it.

I would also prefer to call the police and have them take care of the situation that’s what they get paid to do. Using a weapon needs to be the last thing you do. Using a weapon can be life changing and should never be taken lightly.

Use your rights, speech, bear arms, criminal prosecution but use those rights responsible and not for self-serving reasons. Don’t abuse others’ rights in the process, it’s those who abuse these rights that makes it harder for others to use theirs.

Anyways, probably enough said.

Bill

It really starts getting crazy – Two new trends – one called SWAT-ing. in which the anti gun zealots call 911 for any and every open carry person they see -

The other is a bill in New York, that ANYONE who feels uncomfortable, can strip anothers right to own a gun, that they then have to go to court to regain their rights.
http://nation.foxnews.com/2014/10/06/citizen’s-confiscation-ny-assemblyman-wants-‘anyone-who’s-concerned’-prevent-individuals

and http://madworldnews.com/anti-gun-plan-open-carry/

The anti-gun organizations Moms Demand Action, the Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, and GunFreeZone.net are now encouraging people to call police if they see a law-abiding citizen carrying a gun in public in a new tactic known as “SWAT-ing.” Some of these anti-gun individuals are even recommending the caller allege a crime is taking place when police are notified, so that when law enforcement arrives, they will open-fire on the unsuspecting gun owner

DrDirt – As a hot debated issue previously here on LJ about the serious fanaticism of NRA members, even though I own some weapons, and not a member of the NRA, I do not – and will not – endorse the idiots who call 911 just because some one wants to carry a weapon in public. Those individuals who carry are just as much to blame as the numnuts who are SWAT-ing the situation. In fact, those stupids who call 911 should be held fully responsible for any deaths as a result of their devious calls.

Do note that the above article is from Faux news. IMO, it is a toss-up as to which, Faux or NRA, is the most fear mongering and self-serving organization. Take fear mongering away and neither organization would exist.
