"I'm a major contributor," Clark said. "And I'm also a Golden Eagle."
Clark said the Golden Eagles are members of the premier division of the NRA.
And he said he doesn't plan on giving any more any time soon.
Recently, Clark told The Brazil Times that despite his long-time membership with the NRA, he is not pleased with how the organization is reacting to recent school shootings in Newtown, Conn., where 20 school children and six staff members were killed at an elementary school.
"I have fallen out with the NRA," Clark said. "Not only am I embarrassed, I'm ashamed."
Clark recently returned to Clay County from a trip to Arkansas. While in Arkansas, he said he witnessed assault rifles being used on thousands of geese, attempting to keep the geese from getting into a winter wheat field.
"It's useless," Clark said. "They opened fire on the geese. This issue about assault rifles ... it's ridiculous.
"These men ... they opened fire and the collateral damage was catastrophic. There were wounded birds, dead birds, birds of prey (hawks and eagles) waited in the wings to feed on the dead and dying."
Since the Columbine shootings, Clark said he has openly disagreed with the continued stance of the NRA.
Shortly after the Newton, Conn., shootings, the NRA responded by stating armed guards should be in all schools nationwide.
Following the deadly incident, President Barack Obama assembled a group to discuss possible ways to curb violence with guns.
However, since the shootings, the organization has repeated its stance on guns, stating a ban on assault weapons is not necessary.
From Clark's perspective, the stance is the wrong one.
"Anytime you use an assault weapon, you get the idea that weapon was manufactured and made for one purpose and one purpose only: To kill people," Clark said. "There's no need for assault weapons. Yet, my people, who are colleagues, constituents, and even my own relatives, say that the assault weapon has its place."
Clark said, in his opinion, the NRA's view on the Second Amendment, which states, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed," is skewed.
"It's the way they interpret the Second Amendment," Clark said, adding when the amendment was written, those with weapons loaded one piece of ammunition at a time.
Since his views changed, Clark said he has touched base with the organization, but his opinions fell on "deaf ears."
I'm proud to be a member, but I'm very ashamed to adopt the doctrine they adopt with assault weapons," he said. "But I'm in the minority.
"It's awful. It's taken a turn in a direction of an idiotic idea that these assault weapons are necessary."
