I am interested in joining the NRA, however I would first like to know their policies.  No detailed policies and beliefs are posted on its website.  The NRA slogan, "The right of the people to keep and bear arm, shall not be infringed" is not enough information for me to decide about joining.  For example, does the NRA think that banning handguns on airline flights is an infringement?  What about banning armor piercing bullets?  Anti-tank rockets?  Etc.  I sent an email to the NRA with those questions, but received no answer.  Does anyone know if the NRA has any detailed policies and beliefs, and if so, what are they?  Also, why doesn't the NRA proudly state its policies and beliefs on its website?

no the nra does not support anti tank rockets, nothing too extreme, its a good organization, they instute gun training programs, and set up shooting ranges for members (if you live near one) if you join expect quite a bit of propaganda, i put up with it since i would not have guns now if the nra wasnt there, they do support education, eddie eagle and such, i say its a good organization, and i urge you to join

the nra is just an organization that supports guns w/ gun control.  Since many people (like me) are totally no-gun, and hate any guns, are speaking, the nra is to give their opinion.

Sorry, I guess that's technically correct. Guns don't kill people, the high velocity projectiles they expel kill people.

if you want a group that supports the right to keep and bear arms, then NRA is good, but so is Gun Owners of America, and Ted Nugent United Sportsman Association.  they are all really good.

Hi! I respect all people on earth and realize that freedom should prevail. Freedom of fear is a very important form of freedom and I think that an organization that promotes and supports guns is an organiztion that does not strive for freedom, but for control and influence. Guns mean fear and more fear means more guns. So my dear NRA, what do you say about this argument? Let America be a true World Power and ban the use of guns, which are used to solve problems on the most primitive way possible. America modern??? I don't think so...

Yes, that does sound like someone from the continent that gave birth to communism.


Over here, we of course have different political beliefs.

As a European, I really DONT understand this culture of fear and violence.

68 murder in Canada ... more than 11.000 in the US !!
What kind of creepy reality is that ??

I saw the documentary "Bowling for Columbine" from Micheal Moore and it was really scary.
I'm sorry to say that, but I think that Americans are becoming more and more violent, un-educated, un-informed and racist.

Selling guns in supermarket and bombing overseas ... well that's great....

I've been with the NRA for some time and as a member, who represents my part in the organization, I stnd for the right of people to sport shoot, target shoot, hunt, and to be able to go into public with their concealed weapon giving them a feeling of security from thugs and law breakers who respect no man and no law.  I also stand for proper education of children about guns, cars, sex, anything in life.

I do NOT support terrorism, murder, acts of violence due to rage or irrationality or "pistoleros".  The only things the NRA has asked me to support were the legislations to allow those who want guns to be able to carry them rather than be rendered defenseless.  

For years I've carried, and no one has feared my 9mm except one drunk who came to harm me and one man who wanted to kidnap my kids, both cases being held off by the mere sight of my gun.  ~Gene

Heres the deal: I'm a tenth grade student from New York and I observe the political and social activities involving the United States in an unbiased status formulating my opinions after considering all the facts.  I'll make my points and try to support them with quality evidence.



America is looking at a problem that expands into deeper territory than just gun violence. We have quite a few troubling problems.  Limiting arms and munition will unfortunatly not solve the problem. Canada as Micheal Moore states and proves has roughly 7 million guns in the nation. Yet why does this country have a fraction of the gun related murders the United States has? It is my opinion that America's gun troubles are due to our inability to debate.
       Our government is a prime example of such a disposition. George Bush has enacted a series of laws entitiled the "Patriot Acts."  While the title implies the "Patriot Acts" would encourage more freedom and the reinforcement it in fact limits many freedoms those in the NRA are attempting to protect.  While George Bush is signing off legislation that permits law enforcement to search more and more and infringe on the rights provided to us by our founding fathers.  Such a policy allows Bush to more easily attack opponents.  He uses the terrorism threat to label opponents as "Traitors" and "national security threats".
         Anyways, I applaud the creators of this website for their efforts to open the realm of debate to a public constrained by a controlling and extremely dangerous government.
         If i were old enough to vote I would consider the actions of the American government.  Bush has proven to be a narrow minded, manipulative and degrading leader to the world community.  While it is our right to posses arms, it is our civic duty to remain vigilant of the political happenings on a regular basis and take your opinions to the polls!

European opinion is of no consequence to American politics or social standards. If the United States is in such a dire, horrible situation that so many liberals make it out to be than why is it that you have a 26% chance of bieng a victim of a violent crime in England. Sounds like scary odds to me. I know it's nothing like that here. Comparing gun related deaths in the United States to a country like Canada is absolutely rediculous. There is something like 20 million people in Canada and 300 million people in the U.S. The  cultural diversity that makes this country so great is not a part Canadian life. Nor has Europe been a great role model since they have screwed up the entire world for the past 600 years due to their imperialistic desires. They had to learn their lesson the hard way when Germany kicked the crap out of them, and we had to go bail their dumb ass out. Now they gotta bow to us and they don't like it. Sucks to be European.

even if there are only 20 million people in Canada compared to 300 in the US that still is a long way off adding up. American has a problem that comes from many different areas and thus is a problem that will be hard to remove.
Living in England I have not witnessed such high violent crime rates and i do believe that neither have 1 in 4 of people i know which leads me to question your sources.

Banning buns makes them disappear like prohibition made alcohol disappear. It boosts the black market and makes certain that law abiding citizens (of any country) will be defenseless. Also, the number of crimes prevented by guns is really unable to be tracked because of the simple fact that people don't report crimes that don't happen because they showed a potential criminal that they had a gun while never firing a shot. I understand people's fear of guns and that they would feel safer if they were banned. But, feeling safe and actually being safe are 2 totally different things.

The wrong people with guns kill people.  Just as do the wrong people with knives, bats, sticks, swords, machetes...cars...fireworks...etc.  All of these things kill people.  Fists alone have killed people.  Not to sound too cliche, but where there's a will, there IS a way.  It is in no way fair to the people to take away their most effective means of self-defense from those who are willing to harm them.
