    I'm a NRA LIFE member and now is the time we need to help other Americans join our organization. After every instance of a madman committing mass murder, the NRA is attacked for supporting American gun owners civil rights.

    Donations traditionally soar after these terrible shootings
    -------
    EXCLUSIVE: NRA donations hit $96.4M after Newtown shooting

    ALBANY — Donations to the National Rifle Association soared in the aftermath of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre, new filings show.

    Contributions and grants to the NRA in 2013 totaled $96.4 million, up 11.5% from the $86.4 million raised the previous year, according to the latest financial disclosure form filed by the gun group with the IRS.

    ---------
    And NRA membership increased dramatically post Sandy Hook shootings

    ----------

    NRA: Membership Has Grown by 250,000 in One Month
    A day before President Barack Obama is scheduled to release Vice President Joe Biden's recommendations to curb gun violence in the United States, the National Rifle Association told U.S. News and World Report that they have seen membership grow by 250,000 in the month since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

    We need to continue to increase our membership base even more today to counter the infringement proposed on our civil rights. The communist agenda must include the complete disarming of every lawful gun owner. Forever stripping us of our God given rights

    No, the gun is just a tool.

    -Geaux

    First, Christians generally believe (and historic Anglo-American jurisprudence assumes) that the right of self-defense is included within the rights to life, liberty and property, and that those rights come from God and are contained in Scripture. In an age where all attackers must be presumed to have firearms and a large percentage of them actually do, many Christians therefore believe that it is inherent to that right of self-defense that every individual be able to possess and use such weapons to defend those rights.

    If you believe you have the inalienable right to life and liberty, then you have to believe you have the inalienable right to defend your life and liberty.

    The 2nd doesn't give people the right to keep and bear arms it prevents the government from infringing upon it.

    and this

    -Geaux
    --------------

    The email raised a great question. And the short answer is that part of the foundation for keeping and bearing arms rests in laws that lend order to nature. These are laws that God ordained and implemented just as certainly as he implemented and ordained the moral law (the 10 Commandments). This point is worth explaining because it’s fundamental to an understanding of how our inalienable rights flow to us from God rather than from government. As such, the foundation of those rights transcends government, which is why the right to keep and bear arms “shall not be infringed.”

    How are gun rights God-given and inalienable?
