    Or you could understand that they have had a $500 lifetime membership special going for a while.

    I don't pay dues anymore, but I bought 3 lifetime memberships.

    Next stupid argument.

    Only supporting the NRA in the face of challenges to gun ownership is probably one big reason those challenges exist.

    The Nra has a budget of what? To do magazine subscriptions. They sit on their asses for 100s of millions a year.

    Now if you want to send money to the NRA-ILA then you got a better deal for your dollars.

    Congrats Obama on starving out the "evil" middle class.

    What is exactly a quick change? As versus a what.... a slow change? Oh the foolishness of liberals never disappoints
    Yet what happens with a ban? Do you ban spare parts too? Many states will refuse to comply just like they did with marijuana laws. What then? 3 D printers and polymers will solve the lower receiver problem. The rest is just assembly. And since there are already millions of them out there anyway, exactly what are you banning? Magazines have to number well beyond the tens of millions, quite likely in the hundreds of millions. And ammo? There are decades of ammo stored away. BILLIONS of rounds safely cached away. Considering the compliance with gun bans in CT NY and CA, I'd say this is just another liberal pipe dream.

    I doubt many of these posters who are anti-rights own guns. They just like to pretend that they do. :)

    That is why they continually get their firearms facts wrong, and additionally, they constantly regurgitate false statistics by the various Agenda based Anti-Gun Organisations.

    I am leaning in that direction. Being in California, a vote for Trump is a throw away. I may just vote for Gary Johnson just to send a message and maybe help him get 15%.

    I supported them for many years and chose to support a different organization when they endorsed DT. I think that it makes them look bad and does more harm than good.

    I don't tell people how to vote, but this election is far bigger than Trump, not remotely my first choice, it's about the Supreme Court and the future of the Country. If SCOTUS gets loaded with left leaning justices, justices that will legislate from the bench, a very real possibility since it is conceivable that as many as three will be replaced during the next Administration, it will lead to a far more rapid loss of liberties than we've seen thus far and could take decades to repair, if ever. Presidents come and go, Supreme Court justices serve for life.

    Strangely, to operate a drone, or really any RC aircraft, you MUST join a NATIONAL group to LEGITIMIZE you. To fly an RC plane.

    To own a gun, the next LOGICAL STEP, is to REQUIRE you to join a NATIONAL gun group for that purpose.

    I didnt say that. I could never bring myself to vote for Hillary. Never!

    My post said that I will most likely vote for Johnson. If he gets 15% we will have a badly needed 3rd party participating on debates next election.

    I didn't know flying drones was protected by the Bill Of Rights.

    Operation of an unmanned aerial vehicle is a privilege afforded to you by government if you cooperate with its requirements and restrictions, and easily revoked for whatever reason, or even no reason whatsoever. It is in no way comparable to exercising a constitutional right.
