I hear people complain about getting asked for money all the time which I do also with NRA and many religious organizations I give too. There is this thing called file 13 (trash) that you can use as I do other than checking for a free stamp from time to time. I give when I feel it is necessary. I have read the magazine and love all they support and I have not heard what paid individuals are recieving but unfortunately that gets the best of everyone eventually when they see all the money coming in even the government so much corruption and even religious organizations so unfortunate. I know I am giving for the right reasons, it is those who abuse the systems who will pay in the end. Greed can happen to anyone an given time given the curmumstance; there is way too much money flowing in this country. I often think maybe that is why the Democrats are trying to take it away and control everything we do with socialism/communism. I have supported the NRA off and on and probably will continue like many other organizations but I will continue to pray for our country and nation as I have been doing asking God to forgive us for our corruption and lies. God Bless America!

Reject the NRA and join GOA—a TRUE 2A-supporting organization.

I was a member of NRA for several years but am now a member of Gunowners of America (GOA). By all means, we need to protect our 2nd amendment rights!

I joined the NRA 43 years ago, became a Lifetime Member nearly 30 years ago.
I do have issues with their financial & management processes, but I do still believe
in what they’re doing to protect our 2A rights. I would ask the leadership to stiffen
the spine of this great organization and start kickin’ ass and taking names!

the NRA is about the best defense we have from the “gun grabbers” in Washington and have steadfastly defended the second amendment for many years.

I would love to join the NRA and defend our second amendment rights, however, I don’t like ANY group that constantly asks for money. Once a week, at least, there is a mailing asking for money. That’s not a group I want to belong to. Let me pay my yearly news, send information on news and activities, but leave me alone.

According to the NRA’s IRS filing for 2018, Wayne Lapierre’s salary was $2,151,000; Chris Cox’s was $1,285,000 and Oliver North’s was $1,378,000. There are a bunch of other officers whose salaries are almost as high. I think this is very excessive and when my membership expires, I will not renew. Why should I fund these “high on the hog” salaries and benefits?

Am a member of NRA but only because there is power in numbers. We wouldn’t have a 2nd Amendment today as radical democrats have tried to modify our “LIVING Constitution. There are other organizations as well and should not limit yourselves to one organization.

I’ve got one problem with the NRA. Wayne LaPierre is exorbitantly over paid and they’re constantly begging for donations as a result. I’m a Lifetime Member of both the NRA and 2nd Amendment Foundation and truthfully the 2nd Amendment Foundation is fighting harder for our firearm rights than the NRA is presently because of over paid executives.

While I understand that they appear to be the most visual organization, I question their effectiveness. I prefer to support NAGR and GOA as they seem to be more aggressive at defending our constitutional rights.

Minority Opinion Alert! Minority Opinion Alert!
Caution!

Let me say that I do have mixed feelings on the NRA. Overall, they are positive feelings. But being a rogue thinker, I have a few hiccups.

Let’s begin with Mr. Wayne LaPierre. I certainly want to think highly of him. However, with a total annual compensation of $5.1 MILLION (YES, that is seven figures. Per wiki) I have to wonder if his belief in our Second Amendment is conviction or a means to a cush salary. I mean lets face it, money turns a person; even a person with character. I can believe a lot of things for $5.1 million, or I can pretend to believe them.

We certainly take our jabs at the Joel Osteens, the John Hagees, the Bakers, the Hinns for being deep in the money. Mr. LaPierre is no exception. I am not here to say Mr. LaPierre is not genuine. But there certainly is cause to be skeptical. What would he (or others in power) do to keep that paycheck flowing?

Also, does anyone here believe that the “g”, the “big brother” isnt party to the membership rosters of the NRA? I do not trust government – particularly when the balance of power is not in favor of it’s good citizens. I dont want the alphabet boys knocking on my door; I lack diplomacy.

Finally, why does American citizens need to pay some organization to protect RIGHTS that are already our own?

Conclusion (which follows the Finally statement lol) I like the NRA. I think (and hope) that they are a physical voice to remind the politicians of their duty to maintain the RIGHTS already given to us. That right does not have to be bought every time someone threatens it. It has to be defended by ANY means necessary.

The NRA is now just out to protect Wayne’s paycheck, and has done nothing to protect the 2nd. They rolled on bump stocks, did not hold Trump’s and the GOP’s feet to the fire to get Constitutional Carry passed nationally. They have not come out strong against Trump’s statement of ‘Take the guns first, due process later’. The NAGR & GOA are much more pro 2nd than the hidebound NRA. Repeal the NFA.

Politics of the day by the DNC, tie up the funds from the NRA to support the Trump Campaign by making dubious allegation and going to delayed court hearings…..For the DNC….Desperate times call for desperate measures to lie, cheat and steal…..

My family have always been members. They are the strongest advocate for gun rights and conservatism, in general. However their leadership needs to be accountable for their financial mismanagement and private use of funds. An entire body of high level leadership needs to change and clean up the finances and individuals need to be prosecuted if necessary. Their support and advocacy of Donald Trump has been deflected and instead of helping with his campaign they are fighting their own legal battles because of money mismanagement. This is disappointing and unfortunate.
