Soon most of us will be getting a check from the government. For most of us that check should be about $300. Now, we really didn't expect to get the money back, and so it shouldn't be in the budget for any of us. So, what I propose is that each of us take 10% of our tax rebate chack and do something with it to help the RKBA movement. 10% of $300 is $30, just right for getting someone a membership to the NRA, for example. If each NRA member would do that, we would be over 8 MILLION strong. Or donate your 10% to the NRA-ILA, GOA, JFPO, 2nd Amendment Foundation, or whatever active gun-support group you believe in. Get a group of friends together and combine your 10% to pay for a "Kids Shoot Free Day" at the local range. The Feds have taken our money for years and spent it on a lot of things we oppose. This is our chance to take a little of that money back and spend it where it can do some good. How about it, folks? We all talk a good game, but how many will agree to put their money where their mouth is? You say you are willing to die for the RKBA, will you pay $30 for it?

That's a great idea...I'm gonna do it. Plus, I think we should BTT this thread till we get at least a couple hundred people saying they'll kick in too.

I'm in. Great idea. How about changing the title of this thread to [b]10% solution - using your tax refund[/b] or something like that.

Great idea. I think this post is probably the single best idea proposed in a LONG time on these boards. Count my 10% in. I think I'll get a friend a membership to the NRA. [img]http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/bishop042/2ndamdt.gif[/img]

I usually spend such things on getting handouts printed for distribution at gunshows. Kinkos doesnt know how helpful they have been in spreading the pro-RKBA message over the last couple years.[:)] However, it is sad that so many people who attend gunshows would [b]need[/b] to be told.... G2

Must be nice to get a "refund!" I worked too much last year, making about an extra $4K on overtime in the process, and my federal government is oh so put out with me for that! Just to ensure I stay in line this year and don't make any more money than I "need" they've taxed me a little beyond what was deducted from my paychecks - probably to help pay for the reams of paperwork some poor tax acountant had to complete due to the enormous amount of money I raked in last year.

Nice to see some of the replies on this thread. I've decided how I'm spending mine-- $30 (my 10%) gets a fence-sitting friend an NRA membership. Maybe it will be enough to keep him in the NRA and get him a little more on our side. $200 is going to toys, probably targets for my range. And $70 is going to a big steak dinner with all the trimmings for two! Let's spread the word to other lists and forums about the 10% solution!

NH2112...this isn't a tax refund, it is a rebate. Everybody that has filed will get money back.

i am 100% sure that it will be a non-taxable rebate. what they are doing is lowering the brackets, and adjusting the with-holdings back to jan 1. they are sending YOU the check, NOT your employers. but yeah, GREAT ideas, i'm spending 10% on an NRA membership for the girlfriend, another 10% on ammo, and the rest on other gun related items!

I'll use it for one of my life member easy payments.
