While the National Rifle Association continues to lobby for U.S. gun rights, it has also become the subject of scrutiny and controversy over the past few years.
The NRA is also notorious for sending out promotional junk mail to prospective members. In the form of direct mail, emails, or phone calls, this marketing can be unwelcome to many.
Fortunately, you can opt out to stop receiving junk mail from the NRA, maybe even for good.
What kinds of junk mail does the NRA send?
It’s important to note that, if you’re an active NRA member, you probably receive notices of interest from the organization about news or events.
However, the NRA also sends marketing mail to members and non-members alike, and also may even call you. Many recipients consider this type of solicitation junk mail.
How do I unsubscribe from the NRA mailing list?
If you want to opt out of any or all NRA direct mail, as a member or non-member, you need to contact the organization directly.
To start your opt-out request, you can call them at 1-800-672-3888 or contact them online.
You can also consider making a request in writing, though this can take longer to process. The address is: National Rifle Association of America, 11250 Waples Mill Road, Fairfax, VA 22030.
If you’re willing to pay to stop receiving junk mail, sign up with DMAchoice. This independent service allows you to stop unsolicited junk mail upon request for a small fee.
While the NRA doesn’t specify how long it takes to process a mailing list opt-out request, in our experience it can take at least up to 6 weeks.
What should I do if I keep receiving junk mail from the NRA?
If you’ve opted out, but are still receiving junk mail from the NRA after 6 weeks, follow these steps:
- For magazines and other direct mail, write “Refused: Return to Sender” on the return address label and mail it back to the NRA.
- Consider filing a formal complaint with the NRA by speaking to an agent on their customer service team. Call 1-800-672-3888 to do this.
How can I stay off the NRA’s mailing list after unsubscribing?
First of all, you need to make sure that you don’t consent to receive any marketing mail from the NRA any time you communicate with them in the future.
But, if you want to stop receiving junk mail from the NRA for good, the only way to guarantee that is to remove your personally identifiable information (PII) from data-broker sites.
Data brokers harvest personal data online to bundle and sell to interested third parties, which can include marketers and fraudsters—unless you opt out.
Unfortunately, opting out of each site brings its own challenges because there are literally hundreds of data brokers operating in the U.S. at any given time.
