GBR-II: An afternoon with the NRA

Category: Gun Stuff | Comments Off on GBR-II: An afternoon with the NRA


An enlightening afternoon with NRA / ILA grass-roots representatives. Gunbloggers poised pointed questions and provided many suggestions for more effective outreach, community involvement and more effective marketing of the NRA’s message.

Gunbloggers: Public perception of the NRA’s efforts are often neglected when ‘back channel’ moves are a focus of lobbying efforts. What is being done in Wisconsin, Illinois and Delaware?

NRA: (furiously scribbling notes)

Gunbloggers: Bring attention to abuses in ‘administrative rulings’ that are not reflected in the letter of the law (99R – re-importation of barrels; destruction of surplus ammo; ATF shut-down of licensed dealers and other administrative rulings – i.e., guns on space craft ‘not a collective right’ language; call on Congress to fund the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), etc.)

NRA: (furiously scribbling notes)

Gunbloggers: Realize this – it’s NOT about hunting. Hunters are what? 20% of gun-owners – the real number may be what? 5%.

(furiously scribbling notes)

Gunbloggers: The NRA needs to be visible as individuals – at ranges; at introduce-a -new-shooter events, etc. Don’t be a de-personified ‘organization’ that can be attacked for its anonymity.

NRA: Please provide Gunblog readers with ways to get involved; contact representatives; help to increase voter registration and turnout. This is good … Let’s do this again!

Gunbloggers: How about a forum at the NRA’s convention where issues like these are addressed with the candidates for office?

NRA: Maybe East coast would work better for that.


Summary: We be a tough crowd. All thanked the NRA for giving us a hearing. Without the NRA, it’s likely none of us would have a gun today.

Inventory as of 1/20/2020:

I currently list 13 hand guns with a retail value of $14,393 and 16 long guns with a retail value of $51,231.

Orders are usually available for local pickup or shipment to your FFL in five to seven business days.

"Anyone who still wants guns, rifles or ammo should go to Traction Control/Well-Regulated Militia: Still pre-panic prices and a huge inventory and good reliable service. Tell everyone you know"
