Mayor Not An NRA Member

Friday, January 26, 2007

Fargo, N.D. Mayor Dennis Walaker, who has joined Mayor Bloomberg's anti-gun mayoral coalition, is either woefully confused, or deliberately misleading the public, about his alleged NRA membership status.  In trying to highlight his pro-gun credentials when joining this cabal of mayors, Walaker billed himself as a one-time member of NRA.  The only problem--there is no record of Walaker ever being a member.

Walaker apparently forgot the first rule of how to get out of a hole--to stop digging--when he then questioned whether NRA even maintains a database of its members!  The millions of current and former NRA members can easily attest to the fact that we do maintain membership records.  As a member-based service organization, we rely on this information to provide our members the benefits and news they expect.

One has to have concerns about a group that seeks the release of sensitive records that jeopardize gun owners' privacy rights and law enforcement safety, when one of its own members is incapable of accuracy with his own records.
