Welcome Rustmeister

Quite a bold statement buying the Distinguished Life Membership.  Even I’m not a life member.  The one thing I’d remind everyone is that if you’re an NRA member, you should also be aware of the Political Victory Fund, or as I like to call it, the “Defeat Hillary Fund”.  Thanks to our lovely campaign finance laws, PVF can only be supported through member donations.   Thanks John McCain!

  1. Not quite. 527s like the PVF can accept donations from anyone including 501(c)4 non-profits and for-profit corporations.

  2. It may have 527 tax status, but it’s a PAC according to federal election law:

    The NRA Political Victory Fund (the “PVF”) is a political committee within the meaning of 2 U.S.C. § 431(4) and is a separate segregated fund of the NRA

  3. I’m a Life Member, and for the first time, the NRA has asked me for money — the Distinguished Life Membership.

    I’m always curious when I see people complain about the NRA trying to get them to donate. Is it the same NRA? They have never called or written me to solicit funds in the many years I’ve been a member. This is the first time.

  4. The NRA exists as several corporations for tax purposes only. When you join as a member, it’s the 501(c)4. They do marketing to see who gives them extra money and for what purposes. There was a time I didn’t get many requests from them for donations. Now it seems to have picked up a bit.
