4. Presidential members
Eight presidents have been lifetime members: Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy (the lone Democrat), Richard M. Nixon, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. However, Nixon disavowed his membership in 1969 and Bush resigned in 1995 after an NRA ad called Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents ''jack-booted government thugs.''
