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.
I know I am repeating myself: It Is Not 1994.
This was supposed to be the perfect storm. The US’s Dunblane Massacre and the gateway to absolute Gun Control. The death of the NRA was a foregone conclusion in the eyes of the “experts” and soon the Powers That Be would be free to give us a “better world” free from the threats of guns.
But with who knows how many million new gun owners in the country and an NRA that is more popular than the Government, the narrative took a gigantic hit to the nose.
That does not mean the Opposition will stop; what they cannot achieve by hook, they will try by crook. And crooked they are.
