Who are the California NRA Members' Councils?
http://calnra.com/skin/mclogoclr2.gif
To borrow from Walt Kelly's "Pogo", "We have met the California NRA Members' Councils, and THEY IS US!"

We were formed about 15 years ago - an idea borne by dedicated California NRA members and advanced through the board (Neal Knox was instrumental in promoting us) to become an official NRA program. No other state has Members' Councils. As a 100% volunteer network, we consume no NRA funds unless it is to distribute official NRA programs and materials (hosting "Eddie Eagle" events, "Refuse To be Victim" seminars and other educational programs). We do not fundraise, except to sign up new NRA members. NRA Members' Councils volunteers man those "Join NRA, Get in the Show for Free" booths you see at gun shows all across the state. A full report on a major Members' Councils recruiting event can be viewed here:

We work closely with your state lobbyist and include NRA board members among our ranks. We standby to support the goals of NRA in an organized manner, particularly in Sacramento. When we backup our state lobbyist with thousands of emails, letters, faxes and phone calls, it gets Sacramento's attention! A 2001 report of such an organized state-wide effort can be found here:

IF YOU ARE A CALIFORNIA NRA MEMBER AND A REGISTERED VOTER (the only 2 requirements), YOU SHOULD BELONG TO YOUR LOCAL NRA MEMBERS' COUNCIL!

You can find out which MC that is and when & where they meet here:

In July, that page helped hook up new activists with these NRA Members' Councils:
ALAMEDA
EAST CONTRA COSTA
EL DORADO
GOLDEN GATE
ORANGE
SACRAMENTO
SAN GABRIEL
SILICON VALLEY
WESTSIDE LA
...as well as 7 folks whose zip code doesn't fall within an MC area (opportunities for new MCs?) WE NEED YOU in your local NRA Members' Council!

That volunteer page was developed by the MCs and cost NRA no money.

If you want to get more involved in helping your NRA protect your rights here in California, and in a serious, hands-on way, the California NRA Members' Councils are the ticket. Please visit:

And BTW, we don't just sit around and complain. :-)

The Silicon Valley council has just started up and is trying to reach critical mass. It really needs your help and there is a real chance to define how it grows.

The volunteer page at...
http://calnra.com/volunteer/
...is designed to identify your local MC from your zip code.

One of those PMs I had not yet read revealed a problem, found and corrected (95864 was incorrectly returning the Orange MC, should have been the Sacramento MC), but hopefully, all is well now. (Sorry, don't check PMs that often obviously.)

Please try it out. If you think you got the wrong MC for your zip, please let me know. (And then please show up for the monthly meeting - your local MC needs your help!)

A map of MCs is here:
