Also, I'm a new NRA member and when I signed up I got an NRA card, not a certificate. Not saying there isn't a certificate, just not familiar with it. [/quote] YA KNOW.............wtf ? why didn't the esteemed mediyuuh go the whole 9 yds and simpy state WHAT KIND OF friggin certificate he had ? what the hell IS an nra certificate ? and........SO WHAT. [/quote] The NRA certificates the police found in the house likely had nothing to do with formal NRA membership -- they were possibly awarded for completion of training and safety courses that had been certified by the NRA, the nation's largest gun safety training organization. According to its website, the NRA doesn't offer formal certificates for membership. NRA training courses are taught by a network of more than 5,000 firing range instructors across the country, and they are available to anyone, even if that person is not an NRA member. Nancy Lanza was described by friends as a "gun enthusiast" who liked to bring her son with her to the gun range -- it's possible she and Adam Lanza secured NRA certificates at a gun range for completing a course offered by the organization, without being members. In 2012, the NRA sent out more than 200,000 training packets to a wide range of shooting sports participants, including certified firearms instructors, firing range operators, and local rifle and pistol clubs nationwide. Most of these packets included training handbooks. According to the police report, the book police found in Adam Lanza's house was called "The NRA Guide to the Basics of Pistol Shooting." It's the student textbook for the NRA's Basic Pistol Shooting course, and it's also available online, with a blurb that emphasizes that the $11 book does not come with a pistol course included. Once students have completed the course the book accompanies -- in person at a gun range with an instructor -- they are eligible to receive completion certificates. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/28/nra-confirms-it-has-no-re_n_2972762.html [/quote]
