There are lobbyists all over Washington DC trying to get their finger in the pie. I prefer to have as many lobbyists on my side trying to counter the Bloombergs and Brady's of America thank you. Without the NRA and similar groups we would be stuck with single shot 22's if we were lucky. So yes the more support the NRA gets the better. I also encourage folks to join their regional organizations.
