Check it out first
I believe this might be bogus. I tried to call the NRA, but they are closed right now. I can't find anything about this on their official website. I am a PAYING member of the NRA. If you believe in the cause then, put your money where your mouth is and pay for the membership. They could use the money to fight for OUR 2nd Amendment rights. This might be some kind of scam to get your personal information. Please verify, before you give them any information.
Thanks.
Proud NRA member and (natural born) American citizen

This is what my browser reported when I clicked on that link:

You may be in for some unpleasant news.

Thanks guys. It's all right if it's not full membership since I'm not a citizen yet and if my membership helps to protect gun rights and Obama doesn't ruin this country in 3 years (that's when I'll be eligible for citizenship) I might consider becoming one. At this point it's not looking very good, so I'll try to do what I can and if/when US becomes USSR I'll leave. I just hope it doesn't, but it's not looking promising.
