NRA sees a huge surge in membership interest after Parkland | Daily Mail Online

The NRA has seen a huge surge in membership interest in recent weeks, after drawing noisy backlash over the shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Google searches for 'NRA membership' have risen roughly 4,900 per cent since the week before the February 14 shooting, with new members flocking to support the gun owners' rights group.

NRA President Wayne LaPierre announced last May that national membership had reached five million...


===============================================================

When people feel their freedoms threatened this happens. When they feel like they are being subjected to propaganda like what CNN did with the "Town Hall" this happens. When people look into their history books and read the Federalist Papers they realize 242 years is not a long time and that the freedoms and liberties we have which are protected by the 2nd Amendment are precious this happens.

I would caution the left to take a reasonable approach to the gun debate and not follow the 20% of the Leftists that want to ban all guns. You can get Universal Background Checks, non-automatics, no accessories that will allow a gun to function as an automatic. You can likely raise the age, but do that for military service too if you go down that road. But some of the anti CCR laws, magazine locks, smaller magazines, etc... like in far left states like California will only hurt your cause.

Raking in the dough thanks to multiple mass murders!

If only there were a better way to make a fortune.

I created at least 5 of those since Parkland shooting.
trying to find verifiable info on how many members the NRA has.

LOL !

And the NRA is spinning the propaganda that hey have risen interest just because someone googles "NRA membership".

There is no information other than what the NRA 'says" how many members they have. And the fact that their revenue is declining, which indicates actual receding numbers of members.

But nice try, Wayne... keep your hopes up, Crusher !

Everyone saw this coming.

Well accept the sheeple that believe the fake news MSM.

The other story is the companies who have abandoned the NRA are losing customers.

And that's just the thing with "facts"... one can spin them any way one wants, and they can still be "factually correct, while painting a highly hyperbole, and false picture of reality.

Same as someone asking for a ban of assault-style rifle, anyone can spin this into "they want to take our guns".

Hell, Delta lost a tax-break worth many millions each year, and this over a NRA discount that benefited 13 customers:

Only 13 tickets were sold under the deal, which provided a discount for NRA members traveling to the group’s annual convention in May, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday. A representative for the airline confirmed to HuffPost that the number was accurate, and said the deal was “a one-time group discount for this year’s convention.”

Yup, since those dems control all branches of government, they now have the power to come take your guns.
A lot of fear regarding gun rights coming from the right wing extremists now. Why?
