NRA Sends YETI Tumbling With Record-Clarifying Statement

I’ll be the first to admit that after reading Marion Hammer’s memo regarding YETI Coolers last weekend, I was concerned with how this information was being shared with NRA members.

As the red-white-and-blue rectangle of plastic snugged up against my NSSF press card and ragged old Hunter’s Education card, it hit me: 15+ years of membership, and only now am I forced to defend my decision to support the NRA.
