    I normally eschew wikipedia as a source of information on anything controversial. However, there doesn't seem to be any unbiased information on the 'Net regarding the American Hunters and Shooters Association.

    The NRA and other gun organizations have unkind words for them, but the predominant number of links are the organization praising itself while damning other gun groups.

    So, wikipedia it is (at least until someone can find another site, with more certainly unbiased information): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/America...rs_Association

    It seems like this group was formed to create political cover for anti-gunners who wanted to dupe the public into thinking that they were pro-gun but favoring "responsible regulation." I doubt it is grassroots.

    You're probably too young to remember the "National Firearms Association".

    They were created for the same reason, to be the Judenrat and Kapos of the "pro-gun" movement. Both of them were created as wholly owned subsidiaries of HCI, VPC, the Brady Center, etc. The NFA at first refused to release the identities of its board of directors. The reason why became clear when it was revealed that there was considerable overlap between them and the other fanatical anti-gun organizations.

    AHSA was never anything more than the equivalent of "Jews for the Nuremberg Laws". They'll not be missed except for comic relief.

    American Hunters and Shooters Association (AHSA) was just another Brady Bunch front organization and is now defunct. With the way BB membership and finances have been plummeting that is not surprising.

    For further information contact:
    John Robinson, Chief of Staff (AHSA)
