The NRA may or may not be a gun club for whiners, but it does have a wine club. The NRA Wine Club, as it is known, offers “limited collector’s editions NRA wines.” If you sign up, you’ll also get a “Custom NRA Engraved Wine Box.”
Sadly, the NRA does not offer a domestic-beer club. Yet in one sense, marketing alcohol of any kind to hard-core gun owners is a stroke of brilliance: According to a 1997 study in the American Journal of Public Health, owners of semi-automatic weapons are more likely than other gun owners to report binge drinking.
Now if only the NRA could start a tobacco club, it would be primed for a raid by the “jack-booted thugs” in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
