    lol... I gotta disagree... Wayne LaPierre isn't a wuss... he's a loud-mouthed jerk...

    and an embarrassment to this long-time NRA member...

    I am a gun owner, but I have absolutely no interest in joining the NRA or any other gun-oriented organization.

    Yeah, well he let Tim Russert manhandle him one Sunday morning...He looked like the utter contemptible boob that he is.

    Larry Pratt has both brains and cajones.

    I'm a member, have been for almost three decades. I don't really pay much attention to who runs it. I know that they don't support Democrats, so what's the beef?

    the NRA and other such organizations are ostensibly there to protect your right to own that gun...

    so I'm curious to know the reasons behind your antipathy...

    actually, they do support Democrats who support gun owners' rights...

    the latest issue of their magazine gave props to several Democratic governors and legislators who worked to pass pro-gun legislation...

    and I seem to recall that they commended Harry Reid a coupla years ago for something he did...


    but, yeah... they do definitely have it in for Obama...

    Actually, they were big supporters of Harry Reid for many, many years.
