Gallup: NRA Has 54% Favorable Image in United States, Only 38% Unfavorable

 

Before Barack Obama and the rest of the anti-Second Amendment right, anti-gun Democrats over-reach and attempt to exploit the horrendous actions of a crazed, lone, insaneoid gunman Adam Lanza who murdered his mother and then went on a shooting rampage at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT killing 26, including 20 children … they may want to take a look at how Americans feel about those who Democrats and the MSM want to demonize. According to a recent Gallup Poll, 54% of Americans have a favorable image of the NRA, while only 38% have an unfavorable one. This even after the liberal MSM has tried to smear the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre for his press conference comments and ’Meet the Press’ interview asking to protect children by arming individuals in the schools.

The NRA’s positions on guns and gun control legislation have received significant attention from media and politicians during the last week after the association’s top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre, held a press conference in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. LaPierre denounced the idea of additional gun control legislation and instead called for armed guards in the nation’s schools. The press conference came midway through the field period of this Dec. 19-22 USA Today/Gallup poll.

Other polls have shown that Americans place gun control only fourth on the list for protecting children, following police presence in schools, greater focus on mental health screening and decreasing gun violence in movies, TV and video games.
