On Sept. 22, a friend and I attended the Spokane Gun Show. I was very impressed as to the size of the show and its organization.
One of the first booths I approached was the National Rifle Association. The person at the booth was nice and knowledgeable. I felt good and signed up for a year's membership. The person attending the booth was patriotic and made me feel good about what I was doing.
After paying the yearly dues ($25), I received a subscription to the NRA magazine, two emblems that I can put on my truck and a beautiful NRA hat.
I have to admit that this was one nice-looking hat. To tell you the truth, I was very happy. How patriotic. I'm ex-military, my son is serving in the U.S. Air Force, and I just joined the NRA.
As I was walking away, I could not wait to adjust my new NRA hat and wear it. Not! I looked inside the hat and saw a tab reading "Made in China." I would have paid double for membership into the NRA if I was guaranteed to see "Made in the USA" hat instead.
What's the United States coming too?
