Schumer says the NRA Is an extreme “fringe group”
Reported at The Blaze (and linked at Drudge):
Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) sat down with HuffPost Live Friday, where he made a noteworthy statement about the rapidly-growing National Rifle Association.And in America 2.0, which has now explicitly replaced America 1.0, Schumer is a moderate, even a conservative.
I recently (October 2012) decided not to renew my NRA membership, mostly over their support of Harry Reid in 2010 and the fact that membership results in incessant telemarketing calls from NRA “partners.” Serious gun owners and Second Amendment supporters belong to Gun Owners Action League (GOAL) and other organizations that are much more advocacy-oriented than the NRA.John Dempsey writes:
James N.’s points about the NRA are essentially accurate. There should be some clarification of the difference between the NRA and groups such as GOAL. The NRA is a national organization and GOAL is a state (Massachusetts) association. So their lobbying habits will be different.January 21

I agree with James N. about the NRA and their telemarketing. They shoot themselves in the foot with their incessant phone calls which reach the level of harassment! I am not a member, and up until the last couple of months (when I finally flipped my lid with them) they would call me twice a day five times a week! When I blocked the number they were calling from, within a matter of hours they started calling from a new number. When I blocked that number the same thing happened. Harassing your base is not a great way to win friends and influence people.LA replies:
That’s totally unacceptable. They seem to be insane. I would have nothing to do with an organization that behaved that way.LA continues:
To complete my story on Allen West, before the 2012 election, I attempted to send him a donation, and it was so difficult, with so many hoops to jump through, that I gave up. So they insanely send you fund-raising messages every day, then when you try to give them funds, they make it maddeningly hard to do so.
