“The Day I’ll Join the NRA”

May 6, 2010

What follows virtually mirrors my feelings toward the NRA. While I remain a Life Member simply because then I at least have the right to criticize the organization from within. I was speaking the other day with the author of what follows about this very subject.

My feelings? Has the NRA done some good in the past? Certainly! Have they helped the nation? Again, certainly! However, they should have stayed with safety, marksmanship, competitions, and hunting, and, turned over politics and legal things to their former director Larry Pratt at Gun Owners of America.

Recently I came across the following  – AN OPEN LETTER TO TED NUGENT:”THE DAY I’LL JOIN THE NRA”, it originates from Aaron Zelman, Founder and Director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO).

I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Zelman’s points, as a matter of fact WyGO – Wyoming Gun Owners was also formed due to the ongoing compromise by the NRA.

Two excerpts from the letter:

I’ll join the NRA…
When the NRA soundly condemns, and works tirelessly to abolish, the “Gun Control Act of 1968”. NRA lawyers actually helped to write this piece of totalitarian legislation…

And this one…

I’ll join the NRA…
When the NRA aggressively presses to abolish all concealed carry permit laws. How has an unalienable right to self defense been demoted to a revocable government granted privilege? Unregistered concealed carry has been no big issue in both Alaska and Vermont for decades. Arizona just passed unregistered concealed legislation. It’s time for the NRA to start swimming strongly with this tide…

Be sure to read the entire letter to Ted Negent or all of the open letters from JPFO

Like you, I will wait patiently for Ted’s reply. (Sarcasm)
