In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, CT, the NRA’s ranks have increased by in great numbers. As reported at the Politico, the National Rifle Association has gained more than 100,000 new members in the last 18 days. Is it any wonder why the pro-gun rights group is seeing their membership rise dramatically as President Obama through his surrogate, Sheriff Joe, has threatened to bypass the Congress and US Constitution to grab the guns by executive order. Americans are concerned about protecting children from gun violence; however, simply banning guns and a gun grab is hardly the answer. However, it is the objective of an exploitative Democrat party who wants to harm people’s rights and the 2nd Amendment.
The National Rifle Association has gained more than 100,000 new members in the past 18 days, the organization told POLITICO’s Playbook on Thursday.
The number of paid new members jumped from 4.1 million to 4.2 million during that time.
“Our goal is to get to 5 million before this debate is over,” the NRA told POLITICO’s Mike Allen.
Those comments come as Vice President Joe Biden gears up to meet with NRA representatives Thursday to discuss gun policy after the Dec. 14 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., prompted a national conversation on the subject.
The NRA met with Joe Biden and the gun violence task force yesterday so that Sheriff Joe could get a check in the box for meeting with pro gun groups.
