1. What if a bunch of us wrote in to cancel our life memberships

even though we don't have life memberships?

Kinda like Abby Hoffman's old idea about gluing the postage-paid return envelope onto a brick & mailing itů

10. Great idea! I mean, what's a little vandalism when the end justifies the means?

 



Should we join those calling for vigilantes to kill NRA members too?...that sounds like fun.

12. Vandalism? Where did you get that from?

The idea was to write letters canceling non-existent NRA memberships . . . what in the world are you referring to?

19. How do you equate a spot of mischief with murder?

That seems a little extreme.

23. Close

At Tue Dec 18, 2012, 12:19 AM you sent an alert on the following post:

Great idea! I mean, what's a little vandalism when the end justifies the means?
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=2014762

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

YOUR COMMENTS:

"Should we join those calling for vigilantes to kill NRA members too?...that sounds like fun." - Over-the-top, crazy talk.

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Tue Dec 18, 2012, 12:44 AM, and voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT ALONE.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: seems like the guy was being sarcastic
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: No need for violent talk at this time. I'm not sure it's a joke and not funny in any event.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: This is obviously sarcasm which sometimes needs to be a little extreme in its approach. This member has been here for a couple of weeks and although I do not personally agree with the stance taken, it does not merit hiding.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: DU should never host posts advocating murder or anyone.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: Newbie needs to read DU's terms of service. Talk of violence, even sarcastically, is not acceptable.
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Mmmmmeh. It's a leap, but it's hardly worth hiding.

Thank you.

26. You have an odd definition of vandalism

How is attaching an envelope to a brick vandalism?

24. On the brick thing - it doesn't work.

The person sending out the postage-paid envelope specifies the allowable weight. If you tape it to a brick, the post office throws it away.

The cowards are probably scraping them off of their vehicles as we speak.

17. He's not a coward

He became a lifetime member in 1982

It was, even then, a very different NRA.

This is not your parent's NRA.

I wasn't implying that your neighbor was a coward. I'm speaking of the others who display them proudly.

11. Do lifetime members pay dues every year, or was this a one-time thing?

If it was a one-time thing, I would just keep it, and let them keep mailing you their propaganda. You can put it straight into the recycling bin, without even looking at it. And, the NRA will have just wasted the money it cost to print and mail their crap.

14. When my Dad signed us up, it was a one time payment made by him . . .

I don't even know what he paid. I kept the membership partly because of your idea . . . to waste the NRA's money.

It turns my stomach now to think that they could count me as a member; well, they did before today. I just can't live with that anymore.

18. Last I heard it was $600 - a one time payment.

Boggles my mind that anyone would shell out that kind of money for that rag of a magazine they send out and the worthless "insurance" on their precious guns.

I'm pretty sure that the money is primarily for the lobbying, the magazine and insurance is just a perk.

15. I would suggest

keep the membership, they have the money anyway.

Instead when they mail you the ballot for the board vote to change. Encourage every NRA member you know to actually vote for other than who is there now. Force change from within.

anybody is proud of.

Good on you for the effort and message sent to this right wing anachronism.
