The main reason to join the NRA is to protect our rights. When a city passes an unconstitutional gun law, the NRA is there to defend our rights in court. When the Supreme Court took up the D.C. handgun ban case (D.C. v. Heller), the NRA was there too. When a municipality tramples the gun rights (and therefore self defense rights) of minorities, the NRA is there. In short, the NRA is the gun owner’s answer to anti gun groups like the Brady Campaign. Those anti-gun groups are well funded, and have many lobbyists working to make our city, state, and federal officials pass anti-gun rights laws. The NRA has lobbyists too, but lobbyists don’t come cheaply. Neither do lawyers, which is why we all need to do our part and join the NRA.
In addition to helping protect our constitutional right to gun ownership, NRA membership has many other benefits:
- An official NRA Membership ID card – showing your Membership ID number and expiration date or Life Member status. You should carry this card with you at all times.

(Does not include Junior membership.)
