Kimberly Morin reports that support for the NRA has risen despite the massive anti-gun campaign by Obama, the Democrats and liberal media:
This will be sure to make gun control addicts’ teeny brains explode. Rasmussen has conducted another poll and the NRA comes out on top.
This is despite the demonization by Democrats around the country including presidential candidates.
From Bearing Arms:
A Rassmussen Poll released last week must have gun grabbers scratching their heads and calculating ways to manipulate their talking points accordingly.
In a telephone poll conducted by New York Daily News/Rasmussen Reports between November 30 – December 1, 2015 found that 61% of American adults agree with the statement, “The NRA supports gun policies that make all Americans safer.” That includes 35% who strongly agree.
That’s a 12% increase since 2012, when a poll conducted the same time three years ago after the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. At that time, 49% of Americans viewed the NRA favorably, while 41% shared an unfavorable view of the organization
What hoplophobes don’t seem to get is that every time they demonize the NRA, which is actually made up of millions of regular Americans, they push more people towards the organization.
What’s interesting is it’s the gun control lobby that are the loudest against the NRA. The NRA is the biggest organization in the country that fights for 2nd Amendment rights.
The ‘gun lobby’ is made up of millions of Americans who are law-abiding gun owners.
Some more interesting information from this poll:
The central argument of the gun control debate is whether new laws will make it harder for potential killers to get guns or harder for regular citizens to protect themselves. Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans think more gun control is more likely to make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase a gun rather than keep guns out of the hands of criminals, people with mental illness and suspected terrorists. Thirty-eight percent (38%) disagree and say more gun control will keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. Again, 10% are not sure.
Most Democrats (58%) think more gun control will keep guns out of the hands of criminals, people with mental illness and suspected terrorists, but 66% of Republicans and 57% of unaffiliateds think more gun control will just make it harder for law-abiding citizens to own guns.
This just goes to show how out-of-touch Democrats are with reality and with the rest of America.
Gun control has NEVER stopped a criminal from committing a crime OR getting their hands on a firearm illegally.
Every time Democrats push for more gun control they not only push more gun sales; create more NRA supporters but they also create more 2nd Amendment activists.
