The National Rifle Association has announced a partnership with Copart, an online live vehicle auction platform, to raise funds for The NRA Foundation.
Through the partnership, NRA supporters can donate an old or unneeded car, van, truck, boat, RV, trailer, personal watercraft, snowmobile, motorcycle or other vehicle (in any condition) to The NRA Foundation, and it will be auctioned on the Copart site. The NRA Foundation then receives a portion of the profits from the auction.
To facilitate end-of-year giving for tax purposes, supporters can begin making their tax-deductible donation of vehicles today. The first car donated to The NRA Foundation is scheduled to be auctioned on Dec. 21, and the campaign will run through 2016. To make a donation, click here or call 1-866-NRA-GIFT.
New Poll: Americans Recognize NRA’s Positive Influence
If you watch the so-called “mainstream” media’s nearly daily smear campaign against the National Rifle Association—including calling NRA members “terrorists”—you would think the organization was among the most hated in the country. And you would be wrong.
A Rasmussen poll conducted Nov. 30–Dec. 1, asked individuals, “[t]he NRA supports gun policies that make all Americans safer. Do you strongly agree, somewhat agree, somewhat disagree or strongly disagree with this statement?” A full 61 percent of respondents stated that they agreed with the statement, with over a third of all respondents saying they strongly agreed.
Such high polling numbers illustrate that a majority of Americans see through media depictions of NRA, to the Association’s work on gun policies that empower individuals to provide for the defense of themselves, families, and communities, along with NRA’s programs that educate the public on the safe handling and use of firearms.
Pizza Driver Fights Off Armed Robbers
A Detroit pizza delivery driver used his firearm Wednesday night to fight off an armed robber.
According to police reports, the driver arrived at a house with an order, only to find the home abandoned. An armed assailant hiding inside attempted to rob him.
The driver then turned the table on the robber, pulling his own firearm and shooting it out with him. The suspect was wounded and found on the next street over, where he was arrested. A second suspect is at large, but no description was made available by police.
