For the longest time i thought the NRA wasn't doing anything for our 2A rights here in california. Since then, i have learned about all the different ways that they lobby, as well as realized how they are demonized for wanting to protect those rights. "Blood on their hands" and whatnot.
But what is easier to disagree with? 4 million NRA members, or 40 Million NRA members? The membership numbers prove that the NRA isn't just fringe lunatics, but neighbors, friends, family and lawful firearm enthusiasts/supporters.
