OK, I realize this thread is about NC. I don't know much about NC so I don't have anything to add on NC I'll defer to members from there like Gunny. I don't have anything to counter his claims about NCGR, sounds like they have screwed up.
That said, as far as NAGR in Texas goes I do have something to add. NAGR and their state affiliate here TXGR are the good guys. the leaders here are respectable grassroots liberty advocates. They are one of the few groups supporting our CC bill here. Their political PAC gets involved in primaries and contributes directly to candidates and sends out direct mail supporting a good candidate or attacking a bad one, and in every case I have seen they are contributing to the right side. Yes, their fundraising can be annoying, but I don't mind a few hundred emails in my spam box when good campaigns are getting $1,000 checks. I only wish they were writing even bigger checks, but hey its better than what most of us can do.
Now, they may be inefficient, I have no doubt there is some waste. And their claim to be the only no compromise group is suspect, bu to be fair there were few if any other active no compromise groups here before they came on the scene. And so far I have never seen them compromise.
They do lobby for good legislation like our Constitutional Carry bill at the capitol and call BS on the leadership when the legislature tries to give us watered down substitute bills instead.
There are few groups around here that have proven trustworthy in this state and so far they haven't been a disappointment. All I know is in this state they have been a force for good. I don't think you will find any informed liberty person in Texas who would claim that we would be better off without them here.
