Is the money given to the NRA worth it? I know they fight mightily for our 2nd amendment rights. Is their influence that great with our politicians? I'm thinking of joining. I own many guns, mainly for hunting. I quit hunting and started fishing...and the fishing industry has their whacked out folks too, wanting to ban this or that. The reason I joined this GT is I want to learn about handguns. I bought a G 26 and have applied for my CC permit. The more I read about handguns, the more I feel the gun industry is under attack. Anyway, enough of my ranting, Why did you join the NRA?
