And we are not just into politics.
It seems that to quite a few people, the letters “N-R-A” have been synonymous with “political activity”, and for good reason. The NRA is the foremost and most effective group that defends our right to keep and bear arms, no question about that. But NRA is a lot more than just a political group, and I think that gets lost in the shuffle a lot of the time.
NRA is more than politics – NRA is a shooting organization. An incomplete list of all the NRA shooting sports runs the gamut from NRA Action Pistol (aka Bianchi Cup), NRA Collegiate Pistol, High Power Rifle, Smallbore rifle, National Police Shooting Championships, and just last three they dipped their toes into the 3-gun world, sanctioning their first “outlaw” 3-gun match.
That’s not all, either. Just look at all the programs that NRA offers, that are completely outside the scope of their political activities! Firearms training, hunter education, gunsmithing classes, youth safety classes, Eddie Eagle, the list goes on and on and on. I am the NRA, because I am so much more than a political activist – I’m a shooter, a competitor, and an activist. Yes, we win in the courts, in the legislative houses across the states; we also win when new shooters come on board, whenever a round goes downrange at an Action Pistol Match.
I’m the NRA, but the NRA is more than just politics.
