Ok first off let me say I am and have long been a supporter of the NRA and will continue to be one. I don’t really intend this as an NRA bashing thread, but I do have to say some of the things they do really pizz me off. While I send them plenty of money each year (above my regular membership) there is no single organization from who I receive more JUNK mail. At least twice a week I get something from them usually with something printed in big bold letter that says something like “help prevent the most sweeping gun control ever”…blah, blah, blah. Every one of them goes in the trash without ever opening it. Now in the last week I have received on snail mail and two emails offering special priced WINE! What in the heck? Really wine? Maybe I should have read it but I tossed it and deleted it, but why is the NRA pushing wine? Why do I get 30,000 offers for insurance from them? What the hell is going on there? Look this stuff has to cost them money, the very same money I send in to fight anti gun legislature. While I think they do a great job doing what they are meant to do, I am somewhat baffled by some of the ways they spend money to raise money. I can say that were there an equal alternative I would probably send my money there, much like I have done with DU by sending my money to Delta.
Is it just me or is anyone esle bothered by this?
