Time to join the NRA....

I just joined the NRA. If you are a gun owner who wishes to keep your rights, I strongly recommend that you do the same right away, given the current situation. You can also send donations.... These guys fight for our rights and there is really strength in numbers.

I think I may join. I shoot quite a bit of trap and high power. I'm sure it will benefit me somehow.

You should if you care about your firearm rights, they are the only ones fighting for it who really make an impact at government level, they are our voices as gun owners, the more members the better!

You're 100% right. I will join. I just graduated college yesterday. Let me have a couple weeks grace so I can get my first paycheck when I start working.

Proud member here. NRA supported case just went through last week, CCW or open carry will finally be coming to Illinois. I'm excited and grateful, cause Chicago is not a safe place by any means.

Wow that really show the NRA's power, I would have never thought Chicago would get CCW rights!

Proud member here and thought it was a joke at first when I read the mail from the NRA about CCW in Illinois. I just hope the actual process of obtaining the license is not too insane or expensive. I assume it maybe more stringent than Utah's (I'm licensed) or Florida's, either way it's about time

FYI...I believe the citizens of Chicago must go through a shit load of red-tape just to own a gun and are limited to ONE.

The regular ownership requirements within the city limits are a just ridiculous revenue generator...
  • Pay money to take class
  • Go to Class - Take Test
  • Go to Range - Take Test
  • Get approval to apply for permit
  • Go to local PD and apply - Pay Money
  • Get Permit - Pay money to renew/yr

Can't wait to move to the 'burbs.

Not sure what the CCW will require, but I in general it seems like it'll be the same type of BS - Class/Pay/Pay/Pay.. blah blah.

I grew up with guns in Southern IL.. Shot my first gun when I was 5? Was gifted guns by parents/grandparents since 10? The red tape to me is honestly a waste of time... but if it slows down unqualified/stupid people from obtaining one, I guess it makes it worth it.

Lifetime Member here. My dad has Lifetime membership and they had some deal that made it $300 for me to get Lifetime membership.

Best $300 I've ever spent.

Hey, sorry I had to sell your car. My wife hated the 135 from day one .

Yeah, hopefully they wont make it too inconvenient for the CCW license. Same here, but started at 9 yrs shooting on my grandfathers farm in Watsonville, CA and inherited some when my father passed.

I don't trust the NRA and I'm a proud gun owner.

I think they're more of a voice for the gun manufacturers, suppliers, ect. but hide under the guise of the voice for the American gun rights advocate. I think their drop in lobbying power/membership over the years paints that picture.

Sure they've done some good, but they've also gone silent and disappear when major violent crimes happen in this country. The Sandy Hook shooting comes to mind. I can't support any group that tries to weaken background checks already in the books. I think most Americans would agree that background checks are a good thing.

You know, I never joined not because I did not care about gun rights but because all my guns predate most all these regulations no on knows what I have and I do not care for them to know and I never was interested in even having the NRA knowing i was a gun owner. If you own a gun no one needs to know what you own and Many or the people I know who have own their guns for a long time and pass them down to family members are similar to me, it is none of anyone business whether I own a gun or now and especially you do not need to know what I have.
