The National Rifle Association supports organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, and 4-H. NRA relations with these groups include monetary donations, equipment donations...instructors to assist in their programs. The NRA is and should reamain a 501 (c)(3) and 501 (c)(4) organization.

I believe we all have a right to express our opinions as long as it is truthful and accurate. A comment I read stated - the NRA should lose their Non-profit status because they bring guns to the citizens and the guns kill people . Really? Does the NRA bring the guns and do the guns actually kill people? Or do people who unlawfully use guns kill people? I guess we should outlaw automobiles and sue the auto indusrty because automobiles injur people or maybe it is people who drive cars recklessly injur people? Next, we will have to ban baseball. It's the baseball bat that injurs people and not people swinging the bat right? My role: professional with expertise in this field - 26 yrs military with extensive gun handling and safety training.

When it comes to an organization that has it's priorities you would be hard pressed to fine a better one then the NRA Foundation. The monies that are spent and raised each year to promote and support the shooting sports and firearm safety are second to none. As the Chairman of the largest NRA Foundation banquet in NJ , three years in a row I have seen how the efforts of the Foundation can change peoples lives. From raising the funds to send an athlete to the National's to purchasing safety gear for a ladies outreach event, the Foundation is there.

The IRS should revoke the 501 (3) (c) status of this organization. American tax dollars should not support any organization related to the NRA. The NRA brings to the civilian market guns that kill many innocent Americans each year.

They are a large charitable grantmaker to 4-H, JROTC, Future Farmers, and many other youth-focused groups to promote lifelong safety in hunting and shooting sports.
