NRA is selling US out to Illegal Aliens
do something now!!
Second, I feel offended also as an ex legal immigrant
from Italy... that I am still working on improving my new language: ENGLISH!!!
will not let another pandering behavior insult our pride
after all, during
these hard times, where most of our politicians are selling us out, it seems that
Pride is all we have left.
One day they may live as strangers in their own Country if we dont stop this trend.
can contact the NRA via mail at the following address:

After researching further, I've found out that the NRA is not the answer but part
of the problem... I would call them the Judas goat.
My personal opinion: save the money for their membership and buy more ammo. Or support Gun owners of America http://Gunowners.com
NRA supported the HR2640 Veteran Disarment bill
2) and then the 1934 National Firearms Act - Puts incredibly onerous restrictions on the purchase and possession of "machine guns", suppressors, etc. (which are now termed "NFA weapons"). The NRA actually wrote this legislation.
3) 1968 Gun Control Act - Created the morass of paperwork a firearms purchaser must now undergo, as well as dug the ATF deeper into an area our constitution prohibited it from going. http://www.keepandbeararms.com/information/XcIBViewItem.asp?ID=3247 has quotes from NRA's own publication.
1986 McClure-Volkmer - Misnamed the "Firearms Owner Protection Act",
this law stopped firearms manufacturers from transferring any fully auto weapons
into citizens hands. To buy a machine gun in America (there are currently 366,000
legally owned select fire weapons in private citizens' hands in America), you
must now pay a minimum of $10,000 (for an m-16), whereas previous to this supply
limiting act you could buy one for $200.
5) 1994 Brady Act - Some give Sarah Brady the credit, but they should chalk this Gun Owner Registration System to the NRA. http://www.rmgo.org/brady.shtml has a synopsis.
6) The NRA supports anti-gun candidates
In Colorado, this is as easy to prove as looking at the NRA's ratings each election. Former Republican State Senator Dottie Wham, who killed every concealed handgun bill she came across as chairman of the Senate Judiciary, received the NRA's "A" rating. In 1995 Republican State Rep. Russ George ran a bill (with Sen. Wham) to make carrying concealed without a permit a felony (it is now a class 2 misdemeanor). As a reward (for that gun control and for voting against the two concealed carry bills offered in 1995), George was given the NRA's highest rating and asked to carry their concealed carry legislation.
In recent elections, the NRA endorsed State Rep. Dale Hall in a primary against Scott Renfroe (now Colorado's most conservative State Senator) for St. Sen. District 13, despite Hall running a bill to give the federal ATF more power to make arrests based on state charges.
The NRA often opposes true pro-gun legislation
"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
