Over 100,000 Americans have joined the NRA since the Sandy Hook massacre in December.
The Politico reported:

The National Rifle Association has gained more than 100,000 new members in the last 18 days, the organization told POLITICO’s Playbook on Thursday.

The number of paid new members jumped from 4.1 million to 4.2 million in that time frame.

“Our goal is to get to 5 million before this debate is over,” the NRA told POLITICO’s Mike Allen.

Those comments come as Vice President Joe Biden gears up to meet with NRA representatives on Thursday to discuss gun policy after the Dec. 14 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn. triggered a national conversation on the subject.

“We are willing to talk to policymakers about any reasonable proposals and plans,” an NRA official said in the Playbook report, regarding the upcoming meeting with Biden. “However, the NRA is hearing not just from Beltway elites and the chattering class, but real Americans all over the country that are hoping the NRA is not going to compromise on any of the principles of the Second Amendment, nor are we going to support banning guns. But we’re willing to listen.”

NRA representatives are meeting with Joe Biden at the White House today in talks on how to curb gun violence.

  1. What’s the point of any meeting. Leftists, despite overwhelming evidence that More Guns Means Less Crime, simply will never concede that fact of life. Their aim – to empower government and its agents even more and to disarm Americans – will never be satisfied until we are utterly defenseless.

  2. Kansas man unintentionally shoots and injures 4-year-old.

    “39-year-old Brian Bruno, of Ottawa, Kansas was showing a friend how to handle a handgun. Thinking the gun was unloaded he pulled the trigger. The gun discharged and the bullet hit a 4-year-old boy who was sitting on the floor nearby. The boy was wounded in the upper left leg. He was taken to the hospital where he was treated for a non life-threatening injury.

    Bruno was arrested and charged with aggravated endangerment of a child and criminal discharge of a firearm.

    “I wouldn’t characterize it as an accident, ” said the police chief. “Because you have to pull the trigger on a weapon in order to fire it. He intentionally pulled the trigger, thinking it was unloaded.”

  3. Obamacare outlaws government gun registration

  4. If the Administration tries to accomplish this via Executive Order, it is time to insist that Congress begin Impeachment proceedings.

    O.K. I’ll play. #2 find me the crime stats from the BOJ of crime stopped by individuals

    with a firearm with no shots fired. You don’t here it in the media but I know it is a HUGE

    number.

  6. Thanks a bunch Leslie. Once again, your comment serves to reveal your true agenda … the elimination of ALL firearms.

    People, when gun grabbers try to tell you they only want “common sense” firearms restrictions, don’t believe it … what they want to do is DISARM you. PERIOD.

  7. Leslie, you can’t fix stupid and this person was an idiot. First thing you do when handling a weapon is make sure it is on safe (if it has one). The second thing is make sure it is not loaded. We have idiots on both sides of the isle its just the Democrats out number us in that regard.

  8. Good for the NRA–

  9. Again, our forefathers did not author the second amendment so we could shoot a turkey for dinner. Their intent was that a citzen army might be needed someday to protect itself from
    a corrupt government.

    Gun control of any type of gun, semi or not, is taking away our rights and freedom.

    I encourage everyone to join the NRA in solidarity whether or not you own a gun. It is only
    $25.00. Money well spent to protect our liberty.

    Obama is following in the tradition of dictators everywhere. Disarm the citizens so they cannot
    fight back against tyranny.

    My opinion is that we fought against tyranny once and we can do it again. None of my friends
    and business associates will give up their AR15’s, regardless of Obama says. The common
    response is “ain’t gonna happen”.

    You young ones do not remember this, however, at one time ownership of gold was outlawed
    in this country. Everyone just hoarded it secretly. That’s what will happen again. And the
    blackmarket will flourish.

    Never happen Joy. House Republicans don’t have the balls to pass Articles of Impeachment and there is no way in hell Senate Democraps will vote to convict The One even if they did.

  11. NO COMPROMISE PERIOD.

    Once you go down that road, they want more and more. Like Children with candy.

    And speaking of kids, WASHINGTON IS A PLAY PEN.

  12. Play “pen”, Obama is playing with that pen again. Just use executive power, nope, not this time.

  13. Executive orders are out-and-out unconstitutional. How do I know? Because I have read Article 1, Section 1, “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.”

    All means all and that’s all that all means. If Congress has all law-making authority, then necessarily the federal executive and the federal courts have none.

    If enough of The People of the United States would show their BACKBONE. And they in Washington have POKED THE BEAR.

  15. And let’s say that Obama does try something, their is the Supreme Court. And I see something happening there.

    Yup. And Prohibition worked out real well too, didn’t it.

    I don’t own an AR or AK, but I do own a 1911A1, an old shipmate very similar to the one I carried as my duty sidearm for over 20 years. The biggest difference between this one and the issue sidearm is – I trust mine to shoot straight.

  17. I am the NRA! Back in the 90’s, after Clinton and his criminal regime gassed and burned 80+ innocent women and children in Waco as the result and coverup of his failed media circus against firearms, I joined every progun group I could find.

    GOA: gun owners of america
    NRA: national rifle association
    CCRKBA: citizens comittee for the right to keep and bear arms
    AFA: american firepower association (now defunct)
    SAF:second ammendment Foundation
    a few more I can’t remember

    Because of financial concerns I have narrowed it down to the NRA because they have the most clout. If you own guns for any reason and aren’t a member’ I suggest you join if you want to keep them and your childrens freedoms from being stolen by this fascist government.

  18. #19 Patty

    Patty, I do not trust the Roberts Supreme Court to do the right thing. Just look back at the recent ObamaCare decision as an example. Or Eminent Domain.
