NRA Bunker by Ed Harhager



By Ed Harhager


As I wrote this article for the current newsletter, I wondered if the articles written for the past two years were effective as a tool to promote NRA membership. After all, they have been written about those things that are deeply rooted in the NRA philosophy. It is hard to believe that anyone that reads these articles and feels strongly about NRA principles would not want to be a part of the solution. Soooo….I ask each of you…are you inspired?


Do you care enough that you are currently an NRA member?
If you can answer…YES…congratulations as you are an important part of the solution and the support structure that defends our 2 nd amendment rights. If your answer is…NO, there is still time to join in 2015, and you will feel empowered being a part of our 5 million member organization.


"To conquer a nation, first under some pretext cause firearms registration, then force confiscation of the arms.”

--George Santayana


Did You Know ???
The United States used confiscation of guns in past history? …answer is in the picture at the bottom of this article.



Gun Control Facts
Gun Control is and has always been a world issue. It is an issue that can have appeal to the masses of people within a state or a country because it is always sold to the people as an issue of compassion and common sense. The reality is that gun control is a “slippery slope” toward full gun confiscation.
Gun control proponents suggest that homicide rates will be reduced with new and improved gun laws that provide tighter restriction to citizen access of firearms.
The reality is that existing gun laws are not enforced.
The reality is that criminals don’t abide by gun control laws.
The reality is that gun free zones are a magnet to criminals and homicidal maniacs.
The reality is that gun free countries are a magnet to dictatorships.
We, as supporters of the 2 ND amendment and the NRA, are well aware of the consequences of “gun free” zones relative to mass killings and homicide rates. We rely on the NRA to defend our freedoms by communicating the fallacies of “gun control” to a majority of people within our country. We rely on the NRA to fight the legal battles that sustain 2 ND amendment rights. They have been successful to date, but the country hangs on a very delicate balance between the 2 ND amendment supporters and the “gun haters”.


The following article illustrates how many dictatorships have resulted when citizen’s firearms are confiscated. It also defines how many lives have been lost because of gun confiscation. The NRA needs your support to fight the gun control advocates on a daily basis. Please join today.


“A Lesson from World History"
The total numbers of victims who lost their lives because of gun control is approximately 70 million people in the 20th century. A few of the larger examples are illustrated below.


In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated...
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”*


The United States used “gun confiscation” to win the Indian wars of the west as illustrated in the picture below. The government promised to take care of their people on the reservations. We all know how that worked out for them.

NRA Membership Information:
The NRA offers good deals on new membership from time to time. They have been offering new memberships at discounted prices for one, two, three and five year terms. Multiple years of new membership is a great deal because you secure the bargain price over each of those years.

They almost always offer $ 35 of credit for future purchases if you sign up for an NRA credit card. The credit offsets the fee for a one year membership... so it is actually free.

In addition, you get lots of free stuff, including insurance on your firearms and a magazine subscription.
