I've been a member, then not, then again, then not, now again, for some of these same reasons plus a couple. here's the thing. you've got to fight fire with fire sometimes. these anti gun groups are lawyer-ed up very well, they are very vocal, and have lots of money, along with a bunch of big mouth ignorant people spouting the bogus horrors of guns and hunting pushing Washington to go the way of other countries and ban all guns. I don't believe its too political. I believe, its all political. its a tough thing to get a real good handle on because i disagree with the whole concept of special interests in Washington but there needs to be someone fighting for the Constitution if those elected won't. Sadly, like most things, such as unions or political parties, i think they are fighting more for their self interests/preservation than ours interests.
