    The National Rifle Association is speaking out against (Open Carry) groups, saying using guns to draw attention to yourself in public shows "a lack of consideration and manners"...

    OK, my 2¢, I am not a fan of the antics of OCT or Grisham; but I don't think the NRA should be speaking against something that is Constitutionally-allowed and is legal, especially claiming it shows a "lack of consideration and manners."

    I have never been a big fan of the NRA, I know the organization does a lot to progress gun rights; but every time something like this from them, I wonder what their priorities really are.

    This is not about a popularity contest, it is a fight for what should be inalienable rights!

    Thoughts?

    I think they do good work in DC.
    I also think they drank from the Potomac while there.

    I agree with the NRA 100%. As the Atlanta Airport nutjob shows, these guys aren't right in the head and will sink the rest of us. YOU! Mouthbreather with the AR loaded with a drum mag at the low ready at one of the busiest airports in the US! off my planet!

    Ummmmm-that quote was from June of 2014 when OCTC and Kory Watkins were in full retard mode. NRA later retracted their statement.

    NRA still gets my yearly check.

    Two weeks? They wait TWO weeks? Seems like at least once a week I get either a notice for membership dues or some other plea for money.

    They see other groups as competition and don't like it. Afraid "political capital" will be spent on things they can't solely own...

    I'm an endowment member, but they really rub me the wrong way sometimes.
