As a few of us including myself had said, NRA for get exactly $0 from me here in NY.
Nothing like paying for everyone else's fun.

I think his point was clear. If he makes fair money for his work, more power to him. If he pulled NY out of this disaster and brought us even on the same level as free states, I'd say he was not making enough! He has not. I have no problem with a heart surgeon that saves lives making 900,000 a year. I have a problem with a family of fatasses on a show whose premise is "we are a family of fatasses" making butt-loads of money. Oh, sorry Honey Boo-Boo, didn't see you there. The money isn't the problem. What you do to earn it is. In Wayne's case that is ignore the states that need the most help except when asking to fatten his paycheck.I believe that the post I quoated was your poit that he made $900,000 dollars as well as "other execs making 6 figures". To me that sounded like someone who is more worried about the money they make and not the cause! It seems like people have decided that making money in the country is a BAD THING. It's what we are and shoild be all trying to do, not suck off the tit of the government or dismiss someone cause they made money God forbid! If you had a point starting out a post with he makes $900,000 is not how you are going to make your point with me, sorry.
What about pre-emptive measures? What exactly did they say to stop the AWB from not-sunsetting here? What did they do to prevent CoBIS? What did they do as the pistol permit process grew into the hideous monster it is today? Oh, I know what they did, they had not even a single office in NY fighting for our issues but still asked for money.It's absolutely about Dems and Repubs in this state, it is us the voting public that voted in these people that have put on all our gun restrictions! Here's the kicker we keep voting the same people in. When is the last time you called, emailed or wrote your local politican in this state and asked them what the stance on guns was If we all did this we wouldn't be in the mess were in and we still have the ability to change this state, but it requires us to educate ourseleves and tell our elected officials that if they don't support our gun rights we will not vote for them. The NRA CAN'T FIX WHAT WE BROKE!!!
Well Mitt has one more AWB under his belt than Obummer so that's a bit irrelevant, but the "You guys are asking the NRA to fix your voting mistakes" seems like a bit of a cop out. That's what the NRA should be doing, spreading awareness, stopping lies, providing lawsuits to help the voters make informed decisions. Blommers lets out one anti gun bark and they should pound him into the ground with FACT and STATS, because we don't lack them. The anti's are the ones without a pole to stand on. If the people vote in Obama, and the NRA just sat back and did not a thing about any new proposed legislation, i.e. and AWB...i.e. what they are doing right now in NY then ALL their members SHOULD be pissed.Again we want the NRA to fix our voting mistakes. With all the gun owners in this state and the same politicans keep getting voted back in we have nobody to blame but the voters let alone the NRA. It's called using rescoures where they will do the most good and until we wake up we can't ask others to fix what we screwed up.
It's like if O.B. gets reelected and in 2 years the people that voted for him bitch that he is keeping a campaign promise and coming after our assualt weopens. Are we going to say it's the NRA's fault?
BTW and I'm not saying your voting for him but a lot of those guns you advertise in your signiture are on the list.
I am aware of the hunger in Africa. When they start sending me $1000 per person for a lifetime membership to my "Stop Hunger Association" then I will do the same stuff the NRA does...and PUBLICLY say I am against the hunger in Africa. Oh my, can't see you starving kids down there over this pile of T-Bone steaks. I'm not sure if I can eat them all. BTW, I need sour cream for my baked potato, so would y'all starving kids send me just another $100 a month and they I will REALLY be aware you guys exist.Just remember, the NRA did say they were against COBIS in NY and elsewhere. They were at least aware of NY State COBIS.
did you miss the part about "without backing it up" ???
