NRA Members strongly oppose new gun restrictions, poll finds: Posted by Scott Clement on January 25, 2013
Strong majorities of National Rifle Association members reject newly proposed gun restrictions, according to a survey released Thursday by the gun advocacy organization.
The poll finds more than eight in 10 NRA members oppose bans on high-capacity ammunition clips and semi-automatic assault weapons, with at least seven in 10 opposing each “strongly.” At the same time, 91 percent support changing laws to stop people with a mental illness from acquiring guns, and 82 percent favor placing armed guards in every school, a central proposal of the advocacy organization.
While some survey questions ask about gun restrictions that go beyond what President Obama laid out in a news conference last week — such as bans on private sales and confiscation of previously purchased high-capacity clips — the poll may provide the clearest look at where NRA members stand on new gun restrictions.
Well Tootzie, the Democrats in the Senate heard the NRA loud and clear.<quoted text>
Who cares what NRA members want?
There are only has a purported 4.5 million members, and probably actually significantly less than that.
That's a tiny fraction of the US population (0.014%), and a tiny fraction of registered voters too (0.03%)
The NRA's sole function is to help gun manufactures sell more guns, and they only represent a tiny fraction of the US population. To say anything otherwise is to lie, which is the specialty of birfoons.
