The country's leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports, Friends of the NRA is trying to organize a fundraising banquet in our area and needs people to sell tickets, gather donations, find a venue - that sort of thing. The secretary/treasurer said that they currently have a little over $500. That's it - and they want to have the banquet in May, or June at the latest.
So it was just a couple of guys, with a cause and a few hundred bucks, asking for help so that they can help others.
By the way, I was the only woman in the group and to be honest, I can see why. The NRA needs a serious makeover. Shooting isn't just for camo-wearing sportsmen who eat candy out of a dish made of antlers anymore.
Now, I know that the stereotype is false, but it seems the NRA doesn't. I could hardly blame any woman who, upon seeing the image the organization portrays, said, "Oh, shooting and guns...that's guy stuff."
