April 08,2013.  THIS IS CALL TO JOIN THE NRA RIGHT AWAY, ON THE EVE OF THE VOTE IN THE SENATE.  Yes, I know that all capitals is shouting.  IF YOU HAVE NOT JOINED YET, OR DON'T PLAN TO DO SO TODAY, YOU ARE NOT A TRUE FREE AMERICAN PATRIOT IN MY OPINION.  IT'S THAT IMPORTANT, AND THAT URGENT.---JOIN THE NRA NOW--rugp100man.

Interesting. So you're saying that you can't be free if you don't join a certain organisation? 

Anyway, I don't think this kind of political 'call to arms' (pun intended) should be on the open forums. 

Good luck!

Your right, I really did not know where this kind of opinion goes on this website.  And  no, what I was trying to say is----IF----our freedom of the ownership of guns is taken away(and gun registration always leads to that), then yes, we are not really free.  Doing background checks across the board, according to the NRA will lead to gun registration(and I believe it will).  The idea of doing background checks has merit, BUT the intent of the people pushing this is to really take away firearms, not just look out for peoples saftey.  And 36 senators voted to turn over our 2nd amendment rights to the UN.  These Senators in my opinion should be removed from office, not because of the guns, but because they tried to shift the sovernty of this nation over to an international organization.  The UN should not have any authority over any law in the USA, none, not at all. 'nuff said-rugp100man.

I'm in the Marine Corps currently and not an NRA member. Oorah. Semper fi, devil dog.

This seems like the same mentality that creates gridlock when trying to balance the budget. If we give them an inch, they're going to want a mile fear mongering. Our fellow countrymen are not our enemies. We are to work with them, to find reasonable solutions to each other's concerns and problems. We should not be afraid to give up an inch. Background checks on guns make sense. Stop trying to dehumanize the other side, making them appear evil and treating politics like we are at war with our brothers and if we give up a little ground on a single battle its going to stem the tide in their favor. 

This should be in the political section really.

Stop feeding the troll.

There has already been a discussion on Gun rights argue there. BTW I am in the NRA and I know many, many people in the NRA who are not "a true American patriot". and personally I think the NRA has slipped a great deal from it's original intent to teach people the proper way to use firearms safely, should it have it's say on politics? Absolutely! But  every month I get American riflemen (one of the NRA magazines) and even though they have a magazine for politics they feel the need to ramble about the same stuff every month. they should be focusing on educating the public to change the perception as guns as the problem, which simply is not so. All your "call to arms" does is create a divide between people who want to have the right to own guns, and people that don't. All that does is make everyone else call to arms their side. And then we lose because those on the fence are gonna go with the anti-gun people because on the surface gun bans make sense, when in truth they are deeply flawed. Boom when that happens we lose.

And thus we fall into oblivion. ( Let's ride this sidewinder to the devil ! )
