Hunting Camp goes NRA/SAF only
#1
I've been "threatening" to do this for a couple of years now. The time has finally come. I know some of you have issues with one or both organizations. I am ok with that. To each his own.

I have quite a few friends that are neither NRA or SAF members. A couple of them are not even registered to vote. So, when the conversation turns to gun rights, or politics in general I have a very hard time even talking to them, let alone keeping my cool.


I have a very comfortable hunting camp in Monroe county. It doubles as a vacation home. I invite as many family members and friends up as i can. We always have a great time, whether we harvest an animal or not. We try to hunt every season there is, so we spend as much time during the year as possible enjoying our passion. I just put everyone on notice that as of today, hunting camp will be for NRA/SAF members only. Each season i have asked the non members to consider joining. I've even put a holder on the table with NRA applications in it. Always the same lip service "yea, i know i should be a member....yada yada yada."

I've had enough, join the fight or go find another camp to hunt out of.

Anyone else in a similar situation?

Well your house your rules certainly apply.
But requiring membership in a 2A org means nothing
since most NRA members are ignorant about the 2A beyond belief.
Being a member of anything means nothing if the individuals aren't active in understanding why they are members and what they are supporting. It's no different if they were all registered to vote, but chose not to vote, or worse IMO, make an uninformed vote.

I agree with each of your points, but it's a start, and we gotta start somewhere.

Good on you. If I owned a hunting camp, I would require membership in a pro 2a org, but I would also make it a bible based/christian hunting camp so I would also alienate more people to begin with Smile

I certainly don't fault you.
And if members of your camp don't support other lawful 2A expressions they should go hunt with the rest of the Fuds.
If an NRA membership weeds them out more power to you.

I have a few different memberships. Where is my invite? Lol

But I like the thought behind your actions.

To many people only support the 2nd as far as hunting rifles.

OP,

I'm a life member of Pheasant's Forever, NRA, GOA, and the VFW. I also join yearly the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, DU, and Delta Waterfowl.

If, in the future, you need replacement members, I would seriously consider the offer.

I would also ask for proof of their voting records. You know, just to be sure they are true comrades.

Maybe the gay campgrounds up in the Poconos should force NRA memberships Big Grin
