Default My letter to the NRA

What follows is a letter i sent to Mr. Lapierre , was not sure where to post this but i know we have some nra folks here.. note i have yet to get a response.. but in the event i do i will post it.

Mr. Wayne LaPierre
Executive Vice President
National Rifle Association of America
Dear Sir
I was excited to receive a package from NRA the other day. On the constant urging of my brother and friends I had recently joined. As I pulled out the very handsome NRA Ball Cap, I happened to notice the label and my excitement abated. MADE IN CHINA…. On further examination, I noted the flag decal has only 28 stars, arranged as 3 rows of 6 and 2 rows of 5. While the 28 star flag did exist for approx 1 year, (when Texas was added), it consisted of 4 rows of 7 stars.
While I am pleased to be part of this organization, I am astounded that you would not be more attentive to the little things such as this cap, and the message it conveys. I understand that my yearly dues need to be spent wisely. If you had asked whether I wished to receive a ball cap made in china with a defective American flag decal, I would have declined. I am sure if your marketing folks were to spend some time researching, they would be able to find one or more American companies who would welcome the chance to produce an NRA ball cap with a made in the USA label and a proper flag decal. You might even find them willing to produce the cap for a price that is competitive with the Chinese version, and if not, I certainly would not object to an additional charge.
Sincerely:

Glad you did that. More Americans need to pay attention to what they are buying, lower prices does not always mean a good thing.

Nice Quality cap.....wish the money would have been put towards NRA stuff instead! ...IF I had had the option I would have declined the cap all-together.

Great Catch, and Great letter!

Well, this will probably be a controversial response, but that's really pathetic the NRA didn't catch that. I support your letter due to the misrepresentation of the USA flag, what a disgrace. As per the fact it was made in China, that's a whole other ball of wax. Do you shop at Walmart? I do and I'm a NRA member, I'm also guessing a lot of NRA members shop there too. A company with over 70% of the products imported from China. Although the NRA cap is obviously disappointing because it came from an organization that should bleed red/white/blue, it's an honest reflection of a tragic reality in this country.

Thanks for sharing-

Clay
