Default NRA phone calls.

I've been getting NRA calls everyday, two times. Once in the morning and once in evening since Jan 2022.

Is this normal or did I win something? I've been ignoring it since the 1st time I picked up which was "something something Wayne needs your help.."

Default Glad to share

I'd be glad to forward their calls... 2X day here. Maybe it's a CA thing.

I've been an NRA Life Member for 43 yrs and never got a call.

Unless they also have Vehicle Repair Insurance or Solar Panel subsidies.

You can tell them to knock it off.

"Please remove my number from your calling list. Thank you."

Dang, was hoping I won a prize or something.

Instead, I won a chance to donate more money

I was getting several calls a while back after I had joined.

I told them if I ever got another call I would not renew.

They quit calling.

I have caller id which shows up on both my phone and tv. If I donít recognize the number I donít answer it.

You must Opt-out from getting the calls. I posted something about Opt-out in the general about that and how it works.

When republicans and democrats got together and told everyone that Opt-out laws would let consumers control when business and organizations could contact them what they didn't say was that all those laws had the effect to allow businesses to control all that instead.

It happened to me something different numbers constantly, I finally had enough and asked them to stop.

To the old timers I don't think we had phone service.

Same here: member since 1978. Never a single call, but I've called them a few times, or ILA contacts, Paul Payne, etc.

Do people voluntarily share their personal phone number with every membership, sweepstakes entry, coupon/rebate offer, club sign-up, or internet connection with whom they connect?

I never have, not necessary.

I called member services a few years ago and just had them remove me from all mailing & call lists.

From the NRA Member Services Website
How can I reduce the amount of mail I receive from the NRA?
Simply email us at membership@nrahq.org or dial 800-NRA-3888 and request to be placed on the "Do Not Promote" list. This will significantly reduce the amount of mail you receive without affecting important mailings, magazine service, or your membership renewal.

The NRA wore me down with relentless mailers to upgrade my yearly membership, so I relented need bought a life membership, just to make the junk mail stop.

Now I receive even more.

I’ve been told that my next upgrade from Life Member will include the red Fez and instructions on the secret handshake. This is in addition to the $5 made in China pocket knife.

I was a member for years and upgraded to Life way back when it was expensive, like $750 or something. Then, every time a liberal got in charge (Obama) I upgraded again. I have the chinese knife plus an absolutely horrible little LED flashlight. Their trinkets aren't very high quality but I'm comforted know they're a pain in the administration's ***

Ive gotten calls. Random times. They usually ask for donations. Last time they hit me up for $400. I told them when they are going to start defending Californai gun owners ill think about it. Im a lifetime member

Truthfully if they took the money they spend on the mailers and trinkets and put that to fighting for our rights… And get rid of Wayne I’ll start thinking about donating again.
