    We should care for the same reason that people in other states should care about what Healey is doing here.

    Research Center? Really?

    I think everyone knows what the answer is. They are all simply too chicken to say it. So we funnel millions into a feel-good research center in attempt to find a creative way around the problem.

    My point is people in MA have their own things to worry about (as you mention). Saving CA is not a good use of anyone's time IMHO...they're gone!

    For lots of things CA has been a trend setter that the rest of the nation eventually follows. Whatever lib-tarderie goes on there is very likely to infect other states.

    Welcome to the club. MA is now on the NRA ignore list along with CT. I am a NRA life member and I still support them so they can hopefully stop the spread of anti-gun cancer and prevent federal bans but I have no illusion that the NRA cares about CT (or MA). I could be wrong but I think they kind of care about NY and CA because there are so many people there but I'm sure they view those as lost causes as well. They just put up token resistance there to save face a little because of the massive populations involved.

    Why continue to support the NRA if they're MIA in MA?

    From the comments section:

    "I can see it all now. Sometime soon, all new firearms will be sold with a warning label: 'Firearms are known by the State of California to cause . . .'"

    Guess he hasn't purchased a handgun in Massachusetts - at least since 1998...

    I'm also in MA and a life member and support the NRA. I do it so when I retire and don't need to live in a hot-bed of tech jobs there will still be states to move to with better(less) gun laws than MA.

    See above in bold. Parochial thinking and butt hurt is why the antis are gaining ground. If we insist on being divided they will conquer us.

    These people doing the research, they must be experts, we are paying them right? Look at all the money we have given them, we better do what they say, or all that money is wasted. You do not want to waste money, now do you. Throw a few "common sense" in there and you got it.

    Yeah, that's cool. For years I didn't support the NRA and I was pissed when they did nothing much about the Sandy Hook laws, CCDL and CT Carry did the 99% of the work to fight that (to no avail). I just decided I needed to support all of them and hope the NRA can turn the tide elsewhere (which I think they are) so maybe CT won't be emboldened to go even further and if/when I move there will be a free America left to move to.

    First, how does a physician get so wealthy he can donate $1million?!?!?!?
    More important, since the place is run by someone with a clear bias, the "research" will be scientifically worthless, but will be very useful propaganda. In science and engineering, the absolute most important thing is to have data you can trust.

    The Mass laws regarding gun sales are a picnic compared to Kommiefornia.
    CA now has a 10 day waiting period and you must also pay a $25 DROS fee to the state on top of the 9% sales tax.
    (DROS = Dealer Record Of Sale)

    But wait, there's more, you also need to pay another $25 for a Firearms Safety Certificate (for both handguns and long guns) which has to be renewed every 5 years.

    That's not all, it gets even worse.
    They now have a one-gun-a-month law for purchase of NEW firearms, and if you want to buy a gun out of state and have it shipped to your local FFL in CA, some dealers whack you another $125 charge for all incoming transfers.

    http://www.gunrunnerstactical.com/gunrunnerstactical_rules-FAQ.html

    On another note, I caught a story yesterday on NRA news that CA is spending the DROS fee money on programs other than what the funds were originally intended for. Big surprise there. [rolleyes]

    Politicians are actually afraid of the NRA. GOAL? Not so much.

    Yeah, that's kind of my point Zap. All that money and time spent by the NRA in CA and these are the results. If this is the best they can do I'm not impressed!

    Just like in Mass, they're shoveling against the tide because there are too many moonbats and not enough NRA members.

    With all due respect sir, more NRA members will fatten the wallets of the NRA, how much money is enough? It seems we aren't even close to turning the tide. More members and more money seems like the usual excuse we get from most organizations when addressing their ineffectiveness. IMHO, I don't see where the NRA is any different in that regard.

    The power of the NRA comes from its members and the votes of those members.

    It's just a numbers game but it scares politicians that are vulnerable. In MA, an incumbent democrat is hardly ever in that position

    I'm not an NRA apologist by any means. I guess a big reason I support them is as someone else pointed out, they do have some power in Washington. Some politicians really do fear them, just not around here because MA, NY, CT (and soon to be all of NE most likely) are terminally infected with the libtard cancer. Sure I wish the NRA could do more for us locally but I have a hard time disagreeing that money spent on pro-gun activities in MA, CT, NY, CA by a national entity like the NRA is probably money pissed away. I'd rather not see them spread too thin and lose ground in the red states by spending money on hopeless blue states.

    We need to work with groups like GOAL, Comm2a in MA and CCDL and CT Carry in CT, etc. to get things turned around before we can expect the NRA to risk a lot of resources here. So if you have to choose the NRA or a local group I'd probably pick the local group. If you can support both, even better.

    Problem with kalifornys is they were raised and lived under such PC that even when they move out of Kali they stay the same. They become a cancer in the state they go to and can't adjust to freedom. Millions have moved to other state and infected those states with pc liberalism, oregon has suffered tremendously in the flood of liberal kalis.

    I was referring to CA and MA specifically, the ratio of NRA members to moonbats is extremely lobsided, and their legislatures are nearly all leftists. The NRA sees them as a waste of money because they're too far gone to save.
