JMO, the NRA has and still does protect the right to own & bear arms @ the federal level in there is a state level sportmans 2nd amendment group in every state I believe. There is no, or not supposed to be a gun registration in most states. Yes FFL holders must keep records and produce them if subpoenaed. We have done a good job fighting the anti's so far in most states. If it came down to a total ban, house to house, that would be a SHTF situation. What we really have to worry about is the chipping away, little by little of our constitutional rights. Yea I know that has already happened in the past few decades. However, we have also gained ground in the past few years. Without the NRA the AWB would not have sunsetted, more states would not have been able to have CCP's and we would have lost the election to the libs. How many here would just go to the local police station & turn in their collection or allow someone to come to their home to confiscate them. I don't believe either party want's to consider that scenario. The NRA has the $$$ to battle for us. I believe the most important thing we can do is introduce our younger generation to the shooting sports and get involved with the NRA. Complacency is our worst enemy. Others need to pick up where we leave off.
