Aaron Zelman letter to Ted Nugent

Aaron Zelman of JPFO issued a open letter to Ted Nugent. AN OPEN LETTER TO TED NUGENT: "THE DAY I’LL JOIN THE NRA" Mr Zelman asks several "reforms" of the NRA before he would join. Like #2:
NEXT: I’ll join the NRA…

2. When the NRA aggressively presses to abolish all concealed carry permit laws. How has an unalienable right to self defense been demoted to a revocable government granted privilege? Unregistered concealed carry has been no big issue in both Alaska and Vermont for decades. Arizona just passed unregistered concealed legislation. It’s time for the NRA to start swimming strongly with this tide.
Yeah, he's a purist. Along with thousands of others in this state that wanted to abolish the permit process.

With our sour-grapes we can hang our heads. But as commenter "Paladin" wrote at Ammoland:
...the time is NOW for all these organizations to join together and begin the hard work of repealing ALL GUN CONTROL LAWS that affect law-abiding (I prefer peaceable) citizens. The only laws that should be on the books pertaining to firearms should be those that deal with the use of a firearm in commission of a crime. The Gun Control Act of 1968 and any vestiges left of the National Firearms Act of 1934 should be repealed! (emphasis mine) Ammoland Open Letter to Ted Nugent
And I agree with him.

How about a simple statement on their web site in support of gun rights?

It's not there right now.

There's nothing on NRA's website stating their support for gun rights?

I thought they supported the Second Amendment. Isn't that good enough?
