Posted on 12/21/2012 1:51:55 PM PST by Red Steel
NRA membership rolls are rising rapidly at a record-setting pace, increasing by 8,000 new NRA members per day since the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting. According to Fox News, both the number of individual contributions to the NRA and their average amount have risen significantly in the period following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.
Unlike many who are using the school shooting as a political club, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has been staying quiet out of respect for the Newtown victims. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, on Tuesday the NRA released a statement:

8000 per day
72000 new member of a political action group
which at 10 voters represented for each 1 member works out to
we have to keep this going for the 2014 election.
when will this number hit 100,000 new members?
the MSM will make it look as small a number as possible.
I added myself to that count today.
Me too. After reading the transcript from the press conference, and how much the MSM hated it I decided they must be doing something right.
Safety in numbers.
Only the 2nd Amendment demands American patriots to be more proactive against tyrants who seek to not only disarm your ability to think but your ability to defend your very life and the lives of your family.
Will the NRA defend gun owner rights as these new members hope?
I joined Saturday while reading about the democrat bastards dancing in the blood of the innocent.
Are you an American? You have access to a computer, don't you?
The NRA plays the political game to some extent, but they are the biggest kid on the block. I belong to GOA and local gun-rights orgs too. This is a good sign.
The question is........ will there be enough conservative guns in the pus filled yankee states to overcome being purged from America?
That’s odd. The commenters at the Wash Post assured me that the NRA is a spent force.
Anyone who doesn’t see an armed insurrection just over the horizon just isn’t paying attention. When will they learn to stop poking the bear?
...GOA and local gun-rights orgs too.
NRA and GOA and GOAL protect one of our most essential civil liberties.
Kinda make you wonder where the ACLU stands in all this...
yup me too, whilst I lost all my guns in a tragic boating accident, I would like the opportunity to buy more in the future
I rejoined the NRA after a leave of absence following things they did that irritated me. But our rights are being challenged as never before and we have to have the NRA in our corner.
I also joined the Second Amendment Foundation.
I speak from the yankee state of Pa purely because of a couple of big cities. There are many. Question is the resolve of the whole country.
Just joined GOA, I like them better then NRA.
If this is true, it’s awesome news.
