One thing I love about the NRA - today I received the latest issue of American Rifleman. The cover said "Defend Freedom. DEFEAT OBAMA". No wishy-washy BS about it. I like that. I hope it signifies a trend.
The best thing about the NRA, and I'm a member of several gun-rights organizations, is that the NRA strikes fear in the hearts of anti-gunners more than any other. That alone makes them worth joining.
