Founded in 1871, the NRA is America's oldest and largest gun rights organization, with over 5,000,000 members. The Education Division is the world's largest provider of Firearms Safety Training, through their network of thousands of firearms instructors. These instructors teach a variety of courses throughout the year, spanning hunter education, safety classes for children, Boy Scout rifle teams, Basic Pistol/Rifle/Shotgun, Refuse to be a Victim, personal defense, and other topics. In many states, including Texas, the NRA certifies that handgun license instructors are also qualified pistol instructors.
The political action branch lobbies politicians to pass legislation supporting the 2nd Amendment, and supporting the Founders' intentions in giving us the right to own and bear firearms.
If you value your Constitutional right to own a gun for home defense, hunting, or any other lawful purpose, please consider joining the NRA. Besides the benefits listed below, you will be helping to keep at bay those politicians who have seriously suggested confiscating every gun in America, like Australia did.
