I am a member and support the NRA but if they would stop the early renewal mailings tey would have a lot more money to fight bad legislation. I also find it crass to ask for an amount of maoey as a donation, especially when the amount is large.

Fairly brisk business at the NRA membership booth on the two days I was there during the show and quite a few new members, who were worried enough about current threats to the Second Amendment, to finally join.

Their words, not mine.

Got the call last night. I try to help all I can but they sure start out wanting a huge donation.

Costs $35 per year to belong to the NRA as an annual member. Anything beyond that, is up to each individual.

I got the call last night. They only initially asked me for a $50-$75 donation. Either they think I'm poor or they must have been shot down numerous times when asking for larger donations.

We’ve received many queries about this chain e-mail, which refers to a proposed United Nations treaty to regulate the global trade of conventional weapons.

Much of what this e-mail claims is simply false. A "complete ban on all weapons for US citizens" isn’t possible under our Constitution, according to the Supreme Court, which held just last year that:

District of Columbia v. Heller, 26 June 2008: (T)he enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. These include the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home.

Furthermore, if an arms trade treaty ever materializes, the administration won’t be able to "bypass" Congress, as the e-mail maintains. All international treaties require the approval of two-thirds of the Senate before they are considered ratified and in effect.

Yes, but eventually someone will again post the terms of various treaties the US has entered into, that claim to take precedence over the US Constitution and there will be more debate.
