    The Evil Gun Lobby in Arizona

    The Arizona Repugnant tried to do a hit piece but it reads like an advertisement for AzCDL. They even borrowed heavily from our website (I recognize the wording since I wrote it) but got lazy when it came to see where we're located (we have two mailing addresses).

    It's more than appearances. Our accomplishments tell the story.

    I always see the Brady Campaign's "report card" rating state gun laws referred to here and there. This article mentions it, as well. (paraphrasing) "Arizona has some of the worst gun laws, according to The Brady Campaign".

    Whenever I see this, I ALWAYS make sure to remark: "Yeah, according to the Brady's, folks would be much safer leaving the dangerous states such as Utah or Wyoming and head for someplace safe......

    ...like New Jersey."

    After all, it scores an A on the Brady scale.

    Freedom is a bit like sex, when your getting it you take it for granted, when you're not you want it bad, other people get mad at you for having it and others want to take it away from you so only they have it.

    Well I did look at the Brady score card criteria and I see there is one area that we could have improvement

    One handgun per month, no exceptions
    I feel that there should be a law that encourages you to buy at least one handgun a month

    There's no such thing as bad publicity. Always remember that.

    Though I am a life member of the GOA, and subscribe to your e-mail alerts, I'm ashamed to say I haven't yet joined your fine organization (resources are very limited in this economy, you understand.)

    Are there any plans to offer a life membership with a payment plan? This is how I did my GOA life membership, and that made it much easier. It was only $50 a quarter, almost completely painless.

    We'd love to have you as a member! We're at 4,700. Probably will pass 5,000 before the end of the year.

    If you join at a gun show it's a mere $20 to counterbalance the fee you had to pay to get into the gun show. Online it's a mere $30. We take credit cards.

    We made it simple. Once any member has paid $300 in membership donations, they become a Life member, regardless how long it takes. We have a number of members on self-imposed payment plans. When they reach the magic $300 they become life members.

    We may not have passed constitutional carry (yet) but we have fewer restrictions on where we can carry.

    Hopefully constitutional carry will pass as I hear Wimmer is bringing it back.

    Agree wholeheartedly. Any and all publicity is good. People are intelligent and see through the disinformation and spin that the Brady Bunch and their ilk try to promote - consequentially, even attempts at negative PR gets the word out and causes people to think.
