NRA Membership Surges By 100,000 In Wake Of Sandy Hook Shooting.

That title alone scares the crap out of me people. Is it panic? Do people believe the NRA can help them? I am confused. In the weeks after the Sandy Hook shooting, the NRA has averaged 8,000 new members a day which is a little unusual but expected since high profile shooting are followed by periods of increased interest in the NRA. There has been some drawback though with isolated instances of former members abandoning the organization because of head lobbyist Wayne LaPierre that argued guns are needed in school to prevent future mass shootings. Since then, the NRA has taken a more active roll in Obama’s initiatives to prevent gun violence.
