Hope you like telemarketers.
I quit in October because of the incessant calls from their marketing "partners", and because of Harry Reid.
I just re-upped for 5 years, because this "five minute hate" campaign cannot be allowed to succeed, but there has to be a better 2A support organization than the NRA.
Actually they are loathed in our household. Since we have several phones lines already due to a home business, the only phone number I give out to organizations like this is one that is never answered that is hooked to an answering machine in the garage that I clear every month or so.
To combat the junk mail issue, we have a P.O. Box I give out for the same purpose.
To combat the email issue, we divert email from organizations we would prefer not to be over-spammed from to the “junk mail” folder.
This way we can support the organizations we like, without being inundated. It works well.
My wife, my daughter, and I are all Life Members. With over four million members it's hard for the media to ignore. You don't hear much about the other organizations through the liberal media.
I question some of what the NRA has done. We'll see if their support of Harry Reid was worthwhile. We'll know in a few months if Reid manages to keep the Senate so busy that they don't even vote on new gun laws.
I also frequently support the Second Amendment Foundation. Whenever they report a result I can appreciate, I log in to their web site and donate at least $20.
I certainly got a lot of pleasure out of seeing the Second Amendment Foundation displaying an oversize copy of the check written to them by the city of Chicago, reimbursing them for their legal costs in pursuing the McDonald case through to the Supreme Court. This case established that the Second Amendment applies to states and municipalities as well as to the federal government. Restoration of my rights in Kalifornia is now that much closer.
Not only did my $20 donations help secure gun rights for Chicago citizens, but the city had to pay it back to the Foundation so that it could be used again. What a country!
