New York State Rifle & Pistol Association - Life Membership Problems

I don't get it. I have been a member of the NYSR&PA for several years now. I am pretty sure I have always paid my annual dues on time. I have never caused them any problems. Last June, I decided to upgrade my membership to a life membership. I sent in the full amount for the life membership dues. Shortly thereafter, I received a receipt for my payment. Attached to the receipt was a temporary life membership card and a note. The note said it would take 8 to 10 weeks to receive my permanent life membership card and life membership packet. I am still waiting for them to arrive. I have contacted the NYSR&PA several times now over the past several months (I think my first call was in September or October) and someone there the same person each time) keeps reassuring me I will have my card soon. Then, once I made the inquiries about the missing permanent life membership card, my NYR&PA journals stopped coming. What a coincidence! I am at my wits end about this. So, I just sent them an email informing them if don' t receive the permanent life membership card within 2 weeks from today, I will be taking action outside of the NYSR&PA, like contacting the BBB and others, in the hope of having the issue resolved.

Anyone else out there a NYSR&PA member who is having similar problems

A Good Reason or an Example of a Good Reason To Be Armed?

This video is old, at least a year old, maybe older. remember seeing it and thinking the guy was crazy and I would have either shot him or run him over if possible, if I had been in that blue car and could not drive away immediately. Then I heard maybe it was all a set-up. If it was a set-up, all preplanned just to make aa video, well - it is still a good example of when you would be able to use deadly force to end the threat. if this was a real situation, it is obvious that the guy is absolutely wreckless with regard to the people in the car and their well being, it is obvious that he presents a threat of serious bodily harm and or death, it is obvious that the folks in the car cannot get away fast enough to avoid at least several hits that could have hurt them, it is obvisous that had they been armed the threat may have been over much sooner. Had I been in that car, and that really been happening, there is virtually no doubt in my mind, I would have defended myself and the other person in the car with deadly force.

Had I witnessed that, I am fairly certain I would have done everything I could to stop it.
