I just got my renewal for my NRA membership in the mail. With it comes another set of sticker for a car window. I would like to put them on my car, but am concerned as to the image that this would project.
So, I would like to poll my fellow dopers to get your input on this.
I don’t want this to be a discussion about gun ownership. Suffice it to say, that I agree strongly with what the NRA stands for. I don’t want to debate the merits of the organization. This isn’t GD.
So, if you are holding a job interview and see me pulling in at the parking lot of the job fair with my NRA sticker on my vehicle, what if anything do you think?
Are you anti-gun folks less likely to hire me?
Are you pro-second ammendment folks more likely to hire me?
Does anybody care?
I am trying to pull into your lane on the highway and you see the NRA sticker on my back windshield. What do you do?
Are you more likely to let me in, or cut me off?
Are you any less likely to flip me off if I deserve it?
You are a new friend/acquantance/coworker of mine. You get into my car because a group of us are going to lunch together. You see the NRA sticker.
Will you think differently of me after seeing it?
Would you ask about it, or comment on it?
I live in liberal and anti-gun (for the most part) Massachusetts and work in the high tech industry, if that matters any. I know how I feel when I see an pro-life bumper sticker on a car. I was wondering if NRA membership would be something I want to announce to the world every day. I am not going to base my decision on this thread exactly. I had just been thinking about it and wanted to see what people thought.
