Just renewed via Tom Gresham’s web site, so $10 is going to the 2nd Amendment Foundation, also.
Does anyone know how many members there are in the GOA, JPOF and any of other groups?

I renewed with the NRA a few days after Sandy Hook. It is money well spent.
They seem to be the only group that represents me in DC and I will be keeping my membership active until the sun explodes.
