I'd swear they spend all of my money on printing and postage.

Are they sending you prepaid envelopes?

If so, stuff them with Scientology literature or something and send them back.

"Q: How can I reduce the amount of mail I receive from the NRA?
A: Simply email us at membership@nrahq.org or dial 800-NRA-3888 and request to be placed on the "Do Not Promote" list. This will significantly reduce the amount of mail you receive without affecting important mailings, magazine service, or your membership renewal."

They get paid to have advertisements sent I believe. So I let them. Although I don't get much junk mail from them.

Someone will be in here shortly to explain how to get them to take you off their solicitation list. But I bet you could just call them and get it done by asking the operator.

On that note what about all the telemarketing calls that started the day after I re-upped my membership to get in to the NRA show here in Pgh.

I just e-mailed them to get them to remove me. They said that they took care of it. We shall see!

How do I get them to stop sending me temporary membership cards and trying to scam money out of me to buy a membership?

NRA and AARP are always sending me junk wanting me to join and I'm only 25! I wish I was a "retired person"!

I don't think I've ever gotten a call from the NRA. Matter of fact, I don't think I ever gave the NRA my phone number.

When I'm filling out a form and it asks me for my phone number, I think about if I want this person/company/organization calling me. Usually, the answer is no so I leave it blank or put in a fake number if they insist.

If the NRA has something to say to me, they can mail me a letter or send me an email.

Just call them and ask.
It will drop off the nearly nothing.

Thanks, doing it now.

Oh and btw, I am not an NRA member and I have never been one.

They are sending me butt loads of stuff.

Call them and demand to be taken off the list. Worked for me.

Yep. Every time they call they start by telling me how the UN is passing anti gun measures and how I need to send them money to help stop.

They actually don't spend anything on it. It gets subcontracted to a fundraising company that gets a percentage of what they solicit. I found this out when I was on a volunteer ambulance corps and we ran our own fundraising mailer. One of these companies approached us and suggested that they could increase our donations and they'd get a percentage. We got triple the amount that year, after they took their cut.

Read the fine print. You are receiving junk mail from marketing companies, not the NRA. It's a lucrative business and it's not going to stop unless the NRA stops licensing the bulk mailers.

Why the NRA continues to piss of their potential base is baffling.

I could care less how much junk postal mail I get, if I'm not interested it goes in the trashcan, no big deal. I do get pissed off at phone calls asking for money, but the NRA hasn't violated my do not call listing.

So is it the same with the people that call for renewals?

Most of the time yes, it's just a company that does it.

When I opted out years ago, I stopped getting mail or calls. That was almost 10 years ago now.
