    I received this notice and wanted to make it available to all interested parties; I don't think it's controversial or anything but if the mods decide to remove it, then I have no objection.

    Right now, you can join the NRA at no cost for one year, then decide whether or not to keep your membership. To do so, follow this link:

    http://www.nrahq.org/nrabonus/

    If you support the NRA, but are reluctant because of the “junk mail,” then simply sign up and go to the NRA's website and add yourself to the 'do not solicit' list.

    Thank you –

    Personally, I think this a great post. Hope it remains. But then again, this is a forum about smoking meats and such so if it does vanish, so be it. I agree, some don't support the NRA for various reasons, and I do not agree with all their positions either. But they do stand for every Americans right. I know, some will say, "The government will never confiscate our firearms". Then again, who would have thought the Government would tell you when and where you could smoke? Or punish you for driving a SUV. Or take your land away under the guise of "Eminent domain". Or raise your taxes and give it to those who refuse to help themselves. Take a look at our hobby here, smoking meats. In some cities, you cannot use a charcoal grill let alone a smoker. Point being, people in this forum all share something in common. Weather it be fishing, hunting, camping, the great outdoor in general. Support one anothers hobby and we all stand strong.

    Remember this?

    "First they came…" is a poem attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

    "In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;

    And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;

    And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;

    And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."

    Now I hope I dont start a screming match here with my post. Its not my intention. Just my opinion[​IMG].

    thanks for the show of support guys, and please pass this along to anyone you know who may be interested.

    it is not my intention to get a political debate going because this site is not about that and should stay that way (there are plenty of places out there to argue about politics and it is nice to go to a place that doesn't have that!), but i do believe that MeatHunter's post is spot-on regarding the need for us all to support each other.

    thanks again to all for your support.

    I agree thay stand between us and many lobby groups. I think the NRA does a great job. I don't agree with all they do but I do agree they stand up for a historical right that is being eroded.

    Lord knows you don't want to get me started on politics.

    Gun Sales have increased dramatically in the last few months...In November, background checks were up 42% from a year ago, December, January, and February all showed increases at approx. 25%. Ammuntion has been reported in short supply, and Smith and Wesson has reported record earnings...I think people get it. The NRA is the one organization that is standing in the way of bureaucrats imposing their will on our constitution. In many parts of the country, hunting and gun ownership are a way of life, and I too hope you will support them.

    Whew. I was almost afraid to come back and check this post out. Thought for sure I was going to get both barrels, no pun intended. (I made a funny). Glad to see the opposite it true. I went and poured me a cup of coffee and added a tsp of Insta-cure to it, just to calm me down. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks TasunkaWitko for posting that.

    As it is said, "The Second Amendment is our first freedom". It is the freedom that protects all the others.
    I encourage all that cherish their freedoms to support the NRA.

    OBTW, I have been a Patron Life Member of the NRA for many years now. [​IMG]
