The NRA is the big dog on the block when it comes to gun rights. Whatever else they may do good, bad or indifferent, they are the reason why we still have our guns. Numbers speak loudly, and the NRA has the numbers. They get the attention of law makers (and everyone else).
Don't think that just because no new gun control laws have been passed under Obama that the left has given up. Politicians know that "gun control laws" are the poison apple (thanks to the NRA). New gun control laws won't look like gun control laws and they won't be called gun control. They will look like health care and environmental regulations.
So yeah, the NRA is the big stick. Every gun owner should belong.
