You say that you don't have the money??? An Associate Membership (no magazine) is just $10.00 per year, that's less than three cents (-$0.03) each day. Before you do anything else, do your duty and support the NRA through your membership. JOIN THE NRA TODAY. You can save $10.00 on a regular annual membership by using the link I've just provided, making it just $25.00. JOIN TODAY.
The National Rifle Association was formed in 1871 as a non-profit membership based organization by a small group of New York state National Guardsmen most of whom fought in the American Civil War.
It's object was for the improvement of its members in marksmanship and to promote aiming and drill practice. In 1877, its name was changed to the National Rifle Association of America. Its headquarters have been in New York, New Jersey, Washington D.C. and now in Fairfax, Virginia.
The NRA represents and promotes the best interest of gun owners and shooter-sportsmen and supports their belief in the ideals of the United States of America and its way of life. It is dedicated to firearm safety education as a public service, marksmanship training as a contribution to individual preparedness for personal and national defense, and the sports of shooting and hunting as wholesome forms of recreation. It stands squarely behind the premise that the ownership of firearms must not be denied to law-abiding Americans.
The National Rifle Association of America first got involved with members of the law enforcement and policing community way back in the year 1916. In 1916, the NRA began discussing formal and standardized marksmanship training for police officers. In 1920, the NRA helped establish a police school as part of the National Pistol and Rifle Matches at Camp Perry, Ohio. In 1926, the NRA started a competition and qualification program exclusively for police officers. Since then, the National Rifle Association has become an integral part of law enforcement training. Today, the NRA offers $25,000 personal accident insurance for members of law enforcement. Very few, if any national organizations of any stripe can boast of their associations with members of law enforcement, as the National Rifle Association of America can.
The purposes and objectives of the National Rifle Association of America are:
The National Rifle Association has 55,000 Certified Firearm Instructors and 12,000 Law Enforcement Instructors who reach 800,000 people annually. NRA's Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Program has been used by more than 26,000 schools, law enforcement agencies and civic groups to reach more than 21 million children since 1988. NRA has over 10,000 affiliated hunting and shooting clubs. NRA sanctions over 8,000 target shooting tournaments annually.
a member of the National Rifle Association and join this dynamic and
multi-faceted effort to protect and preserve not only the Second Amendment's
right to keep and bear arms, but our entire republic. Without the Second
Amendment, the rest of the Bill of Rights would most assuredly be eliminated or
irreparably changed within a few short years.
Thank you for choosing SaveTheGuns.com as your NRA Recruiter
I would like to take a moment to thank all of my visitors who have made this page their own personal NRA Headquarters. Those visitors who keep coming back to this page to renew their NRA memberships or give NRA memberships as gifts are responsible for my success. I just want to take this opportunity to say thanks!
In August 2008, just after I recruited my 308th NRA member, I met Wayne LaPierre who is the Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Rifle Association. He wrote me this nice note below which says "Marc thanks for 300 members. It's for freedom. Wayne LaPierre 8/6/08"
The thanks really doesn't belong to me. It belongs to all of my visitors who chose to get on the battlefield and join the NRA, instead of merely watching the battle and shaking their heads from a nearby hillside. The thanks belongs to you, my visitors.
Because of you, I ranked seventh (7th) in the United States for Independent NRA Recruiters for the Fall Quarter of 2008. I have also ranked in the Top Ten NRA Recruiters list in the world in 2008, 2011 and 2012.

If we don't involve our children in our efforts to protect and defend freedom in the United States of America, the Progressive Liberal Democrats, Hollywood Elitists and the American history revisionist crowd will eventually will this battle. Freedom, liberty and justice must prevail. We must involve our children in this battle. I don't have to tell you what we're in for if you don't.

No Thanks, Not Today...?
If your answer is "no thanks" or "not today", I would respond by saying why not? Our United States Armed Forces are deployed around the world defending human freedom and we need real patriotic Americans to stand up here at home and defend freedom from our own elected officials.
"No thanks." or "Not today." are not the words that I need to hear from you.
How can we defend and promote human freedom around the world and sit back and allow our own state and federal governments to become more and more tyrannical with every passing year?
If your answer is that you don't want to join the National Rifle Association today and that money is a problem, I would respond by saying; "that's quite alright, however please be aware that you can save $10.00 off the normal $35.00 one year membership if you join through the NRA through this link. Pay only $25.00 today through this web site.
Furthermore, if money is a problem, then please try to set aside just fifty cents a day (50¢) and come back next year at this time. That's right, it's less than fifty cents a day to join the NRA through the above link.
After joining, you'll receive your NRA Membership Package in about four to six weeks and your Official NRA Magazine will follow every month. Plus you'll have the peace of mind and the great feeling that you've decided to help defend freedom.
If you're already a multi-year NRA member or maybe even a Life Member, that's great and I thank you, but did you know that you can and should be giving out memberships in the National Rifle Association as gifts? That's right, through my special link, you can give NRA memberships as gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and other gift-giving holidays.
In my opinion, this fight of mine and the NRA is not simply about recreational target shooting, gun club sponsored marksmanship competitions, gun collecting or even hunting. It's about freedom itself. It's more about freedom than mere firearm ownership. An armed citizenry was envisioned by the Founding Fathers as the final check upon the power and reach of our own government.
Won't you stand up for freedom with me today?
About ninety five percent (95%) of America's lawful gun owners are not currently members of the National Rifle Association. If you still choose to remain in the 95% of gun owners who've done nothing to defend the Second Amendment, that decision is entirely up to you and you alone.
I'll bet that if your family has been in America for a while like mine has, you'll realize how much freedom we've actually lost in the past two hundred thirty plus years. You see I am in the thirteenth generation of Mayflower descendents. I have had family in the United States during every single event in U.S. history. From stepping off onto Plymouth Rock in Plymouth, Massachusetts in the year 1620 to this very moment, members of my family have been here defending freedom. Now it's my turn to defend freedom in my own way. If you choose not to stand with me, please do something this year to protect the sacrifices of my family in this country over the past almost 390 years.
Frequently Asked Questions About NRA Membership
Q: When do I receive my NRA hat?
A: The Black & Gold Shooter's Cap is a new member benefit only. Inside the new member's credentials package that should arrive in 4 to 6 weeks, there is a postcard that must be returned if the member would like a new hat. New members also have the option of calling 1 (800) 672-3888 and request that the hat be sent.
Q: What is an Associate Membership? I heard it was ONLY TEN DOLLARS ($10.00)??
A: Formerly called a Liberty Membership, this level of membership in the NRA allows one to become a member for only $10.00. The only difference is that no magazine is included in the membership and there are no voting privileges for the NRA's Board of Directors.
Q: Why do I receive so much mail and requests for money from the NRA?
A: Because the NRA is a non-profit association, they cannot use membership funds to sponsor the political fight to help preserve the Second Amendment. The political arm of the NRA, called the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (ILA), operates primarily upon donations. In addition, the mailings are informational, keeping members up to date on current legislative issues. If a member wishes to reduce the amount of mail they receive, they can call the Membership Hotline at 1 (800) 672-3888 or 1 (877) 672-2000 and speak to a membership specialist and request to be removed from the mailing list or other mail limit options.
Please also keep in mind that there are about 90,000,000 firearm owners in the United States and only about 6,000,000 are members of the NRA. NRA members are burdened with supporting and defending the rights of about 94% of America's gun owners and the NRA appreciates any time you can contribute or help support the Second Amendment.
Q: Can I still get American Guardian Magazine?
A: In May of 2000, the American Guardian magazine was replaced with America's 1st Freedom magazine. America's 1st Freedom focuses on legislative and political topics closely related to lawful firearm ownership. The American Rifleman magazine has since been expanded to include topics on personal protection to help fill the void left behind by the discontinuation of American Guardian.
Q: Why are there two different options for Junior Membership?
A: The NRA offers both a $15 Junior Membership and a $30 Junior Membership. The $15 Junior Membership comes with an enewsletter called NRA Family Insights and the $30 Junior Membership comes with the Family Insights enewsletter plus a choice of American Rifleman, American Hunter or America's 1st Freedom magazine. An older Junior Member, may enjoy receiving a magazine that is also geared toward adults and this is why it is also offered.
