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.

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?

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid $98,169 in taxes on $481,098 income last year, according to tax returns the White House released Friday. They paid an effective federal income tax rate of 20.4 percent. The couple´s 2013 federal income tax return was posted on the White House website four days before the tax filing deadline. The 42-page document shows the Obamas reported donating $59,251 to 32 charities. That works out to 12.3 percent of their adjusted gross income. Their largest charitable gift, $8,751, went to the Fisher House Foundation, which supports military families. The Obamas also released their

Joining MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Friday, senior White House advisor Valerie Jarrett was asked if the resignation of Health and Human Services Sec. Kathleen Sebelius signaled that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act would be smooth going forward. Jarrett said that neither she nor the president could guarantee that the implementation of the ACA would be perfect, but that it was an important task to improve Americans’ access to health insurance. “Going forward, do you think your past all of the bumps on health care on the rollout and that from now going forward you can change the dynamic?”

WASHINGTON -- A still-secret Senate Intelligence Committee report calls into question the legal foundation of the CIA’s use of waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists, a finding that challenges the key defense on which the agency and the Bush administration relied in arguing that the methods didn’t constitute torture. The report also found that the spy agency failed to keep an accurate account of the number of individuals it held, and that it issued erroneous claims about how many it detained and subjected to the controversial interrogation methods. The CIA has said that about 30 detainees underwent

A federal judge criticized Attorney General Eric Holder for directing prosecutors to pursue shorter prison sentences for drug crimes before new guidelines for sentencing had been approved. The U.S. Sentencing Commission approved the reduced sentences for federal drug trafficking offenses on Thursday. Holder endorsed the move last month, and the Justice Department instructed prosecutors not to object if defendants sought the newly-proposed guidelines during sentencing. The Justice Department’s eagerness to apply more lenient sentencing before it had been approved through the appropriate channels frustrated commission member Judge William H. Pryor Jr., despite his support for the reform. “I regret that, before we voted

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
