im just curious how many people here are NRA? i sure am!!
Lifetime membership is a better deal now, $500 now is considerably less valuable than $150 in 1968NRA member, off and on since 1968. I only wish I had become a life member back when it only cost $150.00! ...I am not fond of all the solicitations for donations or increased insurance options etc. .. either. However, we must remember this organization is just like the government in that it needs money to run their operation, however the NRA cannot tax the public for funds. Revenue from membership funds alone cannot sustain their operating capital requirements. They must depend on donations, product sales, and insurance sales (which they get a portion of) to maintain the services they provide in lobbying congress to ensure our Second Amendment rights. No other organization maintains an "in your face" approach to government in support of our rights. Ask yourself: Is ensuring the Second Amendments place in the Constitution worh $35.00 a year?
