					This is the NRA, Come Join Us
The primary purpose of the NRA is to protect and
defend the Constitution of the United States, with
a primary focus on the Second Amendment of the
Bill of Rights, which guarantees your individual
right to keep and bear arms.
However, there are many who want to severely
restrict or eliminate your gun rights. Their two-
pronged plan attacks both you and your gun:
To Combat Attacks on
Your Rights, NRA is:
                 To Combat Attacks on
                 Your Rights, NRA is:
•   Fighting gun registration and licensing
    schemes as ineffective against crime, an
    invasion of privacy and a precursor to
    confiscation—what happened in New
    Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
                 To Combat Attacks on
                 Your Rights, NRA is:
•   Protecting private gun sales by exposing
    the “gun show loophole” fallacy. Imagine
    not being allowed to legally pass your guns
    down to your son or sell one to your friend.
                  To Combat Attacks on
                  Your Rights, NRA is:
•   Protecting our individual right to own a gun
    against the growing influence of the U.N.
    and it’s efforts to pass global treaties that
    would disarm individual citizens
    everywhere in the world, including the
    United States.
                To Combat Attacks on
                Your Rights, NRA is:
•   Fighting reimposition of the “Assault
    Weapons Ban” as well as expanded
    legislation that would ban semi-automatic
    shotguns, detachable magazine semi-
    automatic rifles and pump-action shotguns
    and rifles.
To Combat Attacks on
 Your Gun, NRA is:
                 To Combat Attacks on
                 Your Gun, NRA is:
•   Proud to have won passage of the
    protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms
    Act to protect gunmakers from reckless
    (and taxpayer funded) lawsuits designed to
    hold manufacturers and dealers liable for
    the criminal acts of third parties who are
    totally beyond their control.
                 To Combat Attacks on
                 Your Gun, NRA is:
•   Working against new schemes such as
    “Ballistic Fingerprinting”, which requires
    markings on bullets and cartridge cases to
    be entered into a national database.
    “Microstamping” laws would require
    cartridge cases be marked with serial
    numbers and registered to the purchaser.
    Both systems are extremely costly for
    manufacturers and have already proven
    unreliable.
                To Combat Attacks on
                Your Gun, NRA is:
•   NRA is working against so-called “Smart”
    Gun technology which would require guns
    to have expensive, unreliable features,
    such as grips that read your fingerprints
    before the gun will fire.
The Strength of NRA
                  The Strength of the
                  NRA
•   Putting an end to the claim that the Second
    Amendment only protects a state’s right to
    maintain a militia, in 2008 the Supreme
    court ruled 5-4 in District of Columbia v.
    Heller that the Second Amendment is an
    individually-held right to keep and bear
    arms.
                  The Strength of the
                  NRA
•   Do you believe you have the right to defend
    yourself, your family and your home?
    Amazingly, many states don’t, so NRA is
    pursuing passage of the “Castle Doctrine”
    legislation. This law establishes your right
    to use appropriate force to protect yourself
    and those you love.
                  The Strength of the
                  NRA
•   NRA has played a key role in the passage
    of Right to carry laws in dozens of states
    and continues to push for more. By the
    way, the 40 Right to Carry states have a
    26% lower violent crime rate.
                  The Strength of the
                  NRA
•   The NRA has successfully promoted
    “firearm preemption laws” in 43 states.
    These laws prevent local jurisdictions from
    imposing more restrictive ordinances than
    the laws of the state.
                  The Strength of the
                  NRA
•   You’ve heard of employees being fired for
    having a gun in their locked vehicle. Now
    NRA is supporting legislation at the state
    level to prevent employers from restricting
    employees’ self-defense and firearm rights
    with respect to guns in parked vehicles.
                  The Strength of the
                  NRA
•   Population growth has moved new groups
    of citizens closer to existing shooting
    ranges, resulting in hundreds of lawsuits
    and complaints by the newcomers against
    the established ranges. NRA has been
    promoting Range Protection Laws at the
    state level and has been successful in 46
    states.
Always Vigilant to Protect Your
 Gun Rights, the NRA is Also

                   NRA is Also the Leader
                   in Firearm Safety
