The National Rifle Association (NRA) has added 500,000 new members over the last month and a half.
Jacqueline Otto, media liaison for the NRA, spoke to CNSNews.com and confirmed the new membership numbers:
"We mark that [membership increase] from the, you know, Congressional calls for gun control and President Obama's executive orders and things like that. That's what's driving the increased membership."
CNSNews.com asked: "That's approximately over what time span then?"
"A month, month and a half," Otto said.

The NRA is our union.
Member here, but let’s not forget other worthy orgs.... Gun Owners of America and Jews For the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.
I joined today when buying a new rifle.
Me and a coworker agreed. We don’t have to join anything. We were born into it.
Wow! There’s almost as many leaving the workforce under Obama.
But the MSM reports more people want gun control. Their lame-azz polls show it.
That would be why I haven’t received my free range bag.
Funny you should say that, if the NRA truly was our Union, then we as Proud Union Members would have the “Implicit” right to use “VIOLENCE” to further our cause, per the US SUPREME COURT,CONGRESS, and even El Presidente himself, not to mention HALF the STATE LEGISLATURES. So Maybe we should hold a Vote among NRA members to become a qualified labor Union, with the Absolute right to use legally sanctioned violence.
those are the two i belong to.
Doesn’t matter how many members the NRA has, that is no deterrent to the left. What matters is what these members are willing do when crunch time comes, and it is coming. The commies are going for all the marbles.
Decorated vets getting arrested for empty mags? Think these people give a crap about NRA membership numbers? This is about control, not popularity.
DEAL OF THE CENTURY: Tom Gresham (of radio’s Gun Talk fame) has arranged with the NRA to allow his listeners to sign up for a Lifetime NRA membership for only $300 - a $1,000 value!
Just call the NRA at the special number set up for this deal: 1-888-678-7894.
Offer ends February 28th.
I added 3 years to my current membership.
Thanks for not pitching in. /s
Yes, it matters a lot. The number of members the NRA can claim swings a lot of weight in D.C. Algore's defeat was credited to NRA influence and the defeat of dozens of other anti-gun Dems in House and Senate races over the years.
I don’t like their support of democrats but I reupped for 3 years anyhow. We need a strong voice and LaPierre is not a wuss.
