For those of you with a government school education, I'll answer it for you... "To use them on YOU!"
The NRA helped to mitigate the awful trampling of our constitutional rights, but a lot of damage has been done and precedents set.
One thing you will learn from these videos... Being an NRA member doesn't cost much, and the benefits and legal support behind you are worth much more than the price.
I receive no compensation from them for this blog entry, just the same benefits of being a member that you will have being a member.
