Sirs.

I am happy you support the 2nd amendment. Myself and my family have always been collectors and hunters.

However I am losing trust in NRA for one reason. You seem to be willing to allow the destruction of our entire Constitution by the republican right as long as you can strike a bargain with the devil to spare your guns.

Perhaps you watch what has been happening in Washington since the Bush administration took office. Perhaps you don't care.

Perhaps you failed to note the constant attack on our civil liberties by this administration. Perhaps you failed to note that the few voices of patriots willing to stand up to protect the Constitution have all been Democrats. Not one republican comes to mind who has sided with the people when it came to erosion of our constitution.

Yet your organization, rather than educating about ALL loss of liberty taking place as we speak, you chant your cry to oust from office the ONLY voices who actually seem to care about the Constitution.

To me this makes the NRA anti-American.

If you are smart enough to have watched what has been taking place you should be smart enough to realize that when the Constitution is no longer valued by our elected representative NONE of our rights including the right to bear arms will be safe.

The same illegal powers Bush has been hoarding will pass on and if they do so with no champions for the constitution, one president one day may just say, "Go get their guns" and at that point you will have no voice to protest, having already helped to give up your free speech and freedom of the press.

McShame has already been silencing people by having protesters and little old ladies arrested to prevent them from having their "free speech" at the convention.

Does anyone at the NRA really think you would be any safer under similar circumstances? Not when those rights are gone.

You do a grave disservice to your members and to America as a whole by your willingness to throw out the baby with the bath water.

EVERY right is equally valuable. To be willing to lose them all to save one is absurd.

Again I remind you. Democrats also own guns and hunt. Several of the gray haired ladies at our democratic party the other day even have concealed weapons permits here in Florida.

Your stance against Democrats is turning people off once they realize you also stand against the Constitution by supporting the very people who have been trashing it for 8 years without a whimper.

Grow a pair and stand up for ALL of the Constitution. Aim your effort at anti-gun legislation and policies, not at the constitution we all need to survive as Americans.
