I don't mean to offend. It's probably going to happen anyway.

Washington State and the NRA

The NRA is a source of not insignificant frustration to a lot of gun owners. While we do recognize and appreciate the good work they do, it can be more than a little irksome to see a clear cut fight that they aren't weighing in on. The NRA has some weight to throw around. The trouble is that with that weight comes inertia.

Right now, Washington state is gearing up for a fight on gun issues. The NRA thus far has paid it essentially no notice. Gay Cynic has a post up about it here.

One very important thing to note here is that the NRA is not astroturf. The power of the NRA comes from it's members, and in my experience, they are willing to listen if the members start to make noise about something. As such, I'd encourage you to follow any of the links at GC's place and get in touch with the NRA. There's no need to be angry or inflammatory, but simply stating that you'd like to see the NRA get involved in this could go a long way.

It's stuff like this that makes the NRA the power it is. It's a simple thing to possibly give this a nudge in the right direction. Go, contact NRA!
