It was offered to us. I declined.

The coalition was formed many years ago for something else and recently resurrected itself after recent events.

I declined because I do not approve of the group's tactics, nor the accuracy of it's message.

I did notice (just now, sorry) that the page I linked to was rather devoid of links to articles on nraila.org where the NRA says, in writing, what they're accused of saying.

The group is pretty anti-NRA. In the past the NRA has had less than proud moments.

The current NRA liaison in Michigan is very helpful. That's why I put the anti-NRA rhetoric aside (personally) and paid my dues to the NRA.

For what it's worth, I talked with CJ Grisham about this. His group, OCT, signed on. I told him I can see why they did given the NRA treated then very poorly.
