People need to remember the NRA is about more than just fighting for our rights as gun owners.
They also educate new and old shooters. They sponsor competitive events to promote camraderie and sportsmanship. (See Camp Perry) They promote safe and responsible gun ownership much to the dismay and chagrin of the liberal elitists.
You don't necessarily have to Join the NRA but if you are a gun owner and enjoy the freedoms of firearm ownership then you should at the minimum join a regional entity. Personally I am a member of the California Rifle and Pistol Assoc. as well as a Lifetime Member of the NRA
