Ask a Fudd to join NRA, today!....or sometime this month!
There is only 4.3 million NRA members, out of an estimated 80 million gun owners. By coloquial definition, this makes 75.7 million gun owners Fudds. (after Elmer of the same name, people who gain from the NRA's political actions, without contributing). That's 5.3% carrying all the other folks.
And, while we might diminish the political clout of the anti-gun crowd, they will never go away. They (what few there are) are true believers.
It is to make a non-paying, fence-sitter a member, because it's easier than converting an anti true believer.
How many Fudds we have on this board? Too many, if you own a firearm, join one of the associations working to protect our right to keep and bear arms.
...all power is inherent in the people...it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
