NRA phone call tonight - clueless about Colorado
I got a call around 18:45 from a script-reading drone at NRA asking for $400 to fight the UN resolution against assault weapons in mid-March.

Now sure. It's important, but when I mentioned that my donation money was going to local groups who seemed more effective at fighting the huge problems going on in Colorado, TODAY... It was obvious I had gone "off-script" for the "Hi, I'm an NRA member, too, would you care to donate?" person. I may have even heard a few brain cells cry out in agony as they overloaded and popped.

I decided she was having a hard enough time that asking her if she had already donated $400 also, was probably not worth it.

Not impressed NRA, not at all... At least hand the drones an NRA-ILA summary page for the States they're calling and have them at least act interested.

Full disclosure: I'm an NRA Life Member from one of the recent discount offers.

RE: NRA phone call tonight - clueless about Colorado
Had been avoiding a phone number that kept showing up on my caller id for about 2 weeks. It was becoming so frequent that I finally was getting nervous like it was somebody I might know or need to talk to.

Turned out to be the NRA asking me to join for a year. Told the gal I was already a lifetime member. She didn't know what to say.

Have to agree the NRA should be going after the local issues by state. Colorado passing these new gun laws is like a shining impregnable castle that you never dreamed could be breached, suddenly falling and being burned and sacked. 6 years ago nobody would have believed anybody if they would have predicted that in 2013 Colorado would be on it's way to becoming NY or California.
