NRA: Membership Has Grown
by 250,000 in One Month

U.S. News & World Report, by Lauren Fox

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/15/2013 1:43:31 PM

A day before President Barack Obama is scheduled to release Vice President Joe Biden´s recommendations to curb gun violence in the United States, the National Rifle Association told U.S. News and World Report that they have seen membership grow by 250,000 in the month since the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. (Snip) Politico reported membership had grown by more than 100,000 five days ago. The NRA says that when Politico reported the story, membership was close to 200,000, but the number has drastically grown in just five days.

Comments:
This has to infuriate 0bama and his corrupt regime.

My son (22), my mother (75) and myself (52) are going to buy guns next week to add to our modest selection. These uneducated and very foolish liberals know not what they have stirred in this great nation. Interesting times.

Welcome to America´s oldest civil rights organization [by far], friends. Well done.

#7: Agree re the magazine.

For those not yet members, there are three NRA magazines to choose from -- 30 round, 50-round, and-- gotcha! Just kidding!

New York´s new state law has a provision making it a crime to own a gun with a greater than 7-round magazine. It is being said that one doesn´t need a larger magazine (even the old 10-round one) for self-defense. Does that mean that Governor Cuomo and Nanny Bloomberg will order their security details to carry guns with a no greater than 7-round capacity? I mean, if that´s sufficient for self-defense shouldn´t they lead the way?

It is very difficult to ignore #13. Even though he is a speck of dust "in the grand scheme of things," it´s hard to block him out.

Poster 16, I think you are on to something. Number 13 posts the same pathetic talking points time after time. That suggests he is a paid seminar poster.

He poses as a Republican, says he voted for Mitt Romney. Riiiight. And mayor bloomberg is 6´3".

I renewed my membership in the NRA just this week--for two years!--after having let it lapse for a while. I don´t own a gun. I don´t have any personal interest in guns. But I believe that it is the right of every law-abiding American to defend him- or herself against intruders who would do harm to life or property.

Since the election of November 2012, I´d sooner support organizations like the NRA than the GOP. The NRA sticks to its guns--literally and figurately. You cannot always count on the GOP to do that.

Dems? It would be a cold day in hell before I´d support a Democrat.

I´m a lifetime member and just gave the NRA a donation.

Many gov´t police members are also oath-takers and may or may not be NRA members. Oath-takers have taken an oath to not support govt actions against citizens defending their 2nd amendment right but will instead will protect the citizens and their rights.

Here´s another thought. No matter how small the NRA membership may be, there are still far more gun owners in the country that just those who are NRA members.

I think I just heard a statistic that 70% of the public owns guns and there six guns for every citizen.

If push were to come to shoving, I think the gun owners would unite.

Pray for impeachment.

re #37: For those not familiar with the organizations, both Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership and Gun Owners of America do some good work.

re seminar poster #13: OK, what about numbers? "Oddly," it´s difficult to get numbers on CAIR´s membership, except that there are many citations from 2007 discussing how its membership declined by 90% or more after 9/11/2001. It seems they have fewer than 2,000 members, maybe fewer than 1,000 today; and that their budget [maybe $3 million?] is covered by fewer than 2 dozen donors. So, anyone want to compare the relative coverage of CAIR and the NRA to their relative membership sizes? How about you, #13?

GENEVA – Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine. The tentative agreement puts on hold -- for now at least -- additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. And that will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called the deal the result of a "good day´s work" but emphasized that the words on paper

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I’ve been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don’t know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population. Other surveys are available, but the samples are smaller, so they’re not as good; the census is the gold standard. Unfortunately,

GOP presidential hopefuls are largely steering clear of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s fight with the federal government. The showdown, which left armed militia members and feds staring each other down last week, has captivated talk radio and cable news shows, turning Bundy into a conservative cause célèbre. Yet Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Mike Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate, are the only big-name Republicans to have spoken out on the dispute so far. Tea Party favorite Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has been silent, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) have also not

The U.S. is sending helmets, sleeping bags and generators to support the Ukrainian military -- but stopped short of approving other items the interim government reportedly says it needs to stand up to the might of Moscow, saber-rattling on its doorstep. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that the U.S. will send the additional non-lethal military aid. The additional aid was announced as fighting between Ukraine´s military and pro-Russian factions intensified in the eastern part of the country. Hagel, speaking at a press conference at the Pentagon with his Polish counterpart, said the approved aid would include medical supplies, helmets, sleeping mats,

Many of you are recovering from devastating injuries.

President Obama´s budget would not place the federal debt on a downward path over the next 10 years, according to projections released by the Congressional Budget Office on Thursday. The CBO, Congress’ nonpartisan budget scorekeeper, projected that if the president’s proposals were to go into effect, federal debt held by the public would rise from $12.8 trillion at the end of fiscal 2014 to $19.9 trillion in 2024, leaving the level of debt as a share of total economic output constant, at roughly 74 percent. That would be lower than the baseline projection of 78 percent if nothing is done,

Media Matters for America is apparently resisting an effort by Service Employees International Union Local 500 to unionize its staff. Last week, the union filed a representation petition with the National Labor Relations Board, indicating that the nonprofit media watchdog organization rejected an effort by the union to organize MMFA´s staff through a Card Check election. A filing with the NLRB does not necessarily mean that the union and management are in direct confrontation. For example, although Volkswagen tacitly backed the United Auto Workers´ recent effort to organize its Chattanooga, Tenn., plant, the company still insisted on an NLRB-monitored election. But the

John McCain said that former President Jimmy Carter was tougher with U.S. foes than President Obama has been, and that America´s credibility as world power has crumbled under Obama. McCain, the top foreign policy expert in Congress, said that U.S. credibility to lead the war against terrorist states cracked when Obama failed to make good on his threats against Syrian chemical attacks and when the al Qaeda retook Fallujah where the bloodiest battle in Iraq took place, killing 96 Americans and wounding 600.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
