A day before President Barack Obama is scheduled to release Vice President Joe Biden's recommendations to curb gun violence in the United States,
the National Rifle Association told U.S. News and World Report that they have seen membership grow by 250,000 in the month since the Sandy Hook
Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
"I would say that every time President Obama opens his mouth and Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein opens her mouth and they talk about gun bans and
restricting the rights of law abiding Americans, people pay attention to that and sign up," says Andrew Arulanandam, the NRA's public affairs
I've been a member of GOA, JPFO, some state orgs and given to 2AF but I had always avoided the NRA. For me the NRA was that organization that screwed
us over in '34 and sold us all out in '94.
After hearing them post Newtown not pander to the "Fudds" and not crawl to the fed for understanding and compassion I finally signed up.
Apparently so did 249,999 others.
