In the wake of the Florida school shootings several companies have severed ties with the NRA. FYI, they are listed here.

FTR, I’m a lifer and not interested to hear why you didn’t/won’t support the NRA. This, as said, is just in case you would like to reciprocate. I already have.

Wow talk about a knee jerk reaction.

Now here's a boycott we can all get behind if they want to walk away from the NRA.

I also heard on the radio yesterday the city of Dallas asked them not to have their convention in their city. The city asked them to change to another location..........I dont understand we dont protest to band alcohol because of DWI fatalities or cell phones because of texting and driving fatalities. Im not going to keep going with a rant, most of us are already thinking the same thoughts. Just continue to pray and do whats right!!!

I wish Mayor Price would come out and say Fort Worth will host the convention is Dallas doesn’t want the influx of money

I didn't renew my membership a few years back because of too much email and mail. It was crazy. The hyperbole and nonsense was too much. I may try to find a paper application and join again so they won't email me to death

So are you guys not upset about the NRA and this statement about bump stocks?

Crap, it was already so hard to remember who we were supposed to like/boycott and not like. Now I have to add more people to that list. It's getting too hard to track can someone make a cheat sheet.

I don't know enough about the subject but what I've heard in the past they were skirting the edge of the law with bump stocks.

We do have a law on the books that makes fully automatic weapons an NFA item. What does the law state, simply a rate of fire minimum or does it dive deeper into what makes a rifle full auto?

I still support the NRA, they are not perfect but they're our best defense to keep what we use to defend ourselves.

That's a baited question after vegas...NRA reps owners across the spectrum including a bunch of members who feel ar's & the like are not needed themselves!! Lose the battle & move them to nfa to fight the war another day.

How many would turn in their cards if the statement was:

The NRA believes all items like bump stocks & binary triggers that increase the rate of fire to assist function similar to full auto should not be held to further regulations. Although they can simulate fa they are not part of the firearm with a serial number that otherwise requires traceability. The NRA took heat from many members when we supported previous item like auto-sears & full auto receivers & the gun themselves to the NFA process. This was a mistake.

They are a political organization & will always be forced into a corner when some nut job uses a new gadget in a tragedy. I'm not sure what choice they had & have also stated that while they support further regulation to an item that helps a firearm work like fa & be subjected to the current law how nfa are handled that the change isn't going to solve our issues. They were simply screwed & bet tens of thousands of members would have resigned vs the numbers who would quit if they stated no further regulation of any kind.


Thanks to those that joined!!

I am a lifer. The discounts were minimal at best with most of these companies and it helped them way more than it helped the NRA. I didn’t become a member for the discounts.
