The NRA Only Has 4.25 Million Members

I know, in flyover land, 4.25 million sounds like a real lot. But in reality, its not. They are just a little more than 1% of the population. So why the hell do politicians and the media give these clowns so much credit and so much clout?

That is about the same number as James Dobsons Focus on the Family group.

You don't have to be a member to support them or the 2nd amendment.

What it the equivalent anti-gun group that I can join?

Let's just hope they aren't multiplying and that they are shooting blanks.

R3 No one has said otherwise, so why you feel the need to make that statement is somewhat of a mystery.

The topic is the NRA. Its the NRA that lobbies Congress for more relaxed gun laws. Its the NRA that has gone on the news shows pressing the case for more relaxed gun laws.

Does the "R" in NRA stand for Republican?

Some more perspective:

CBS News Poll this morning showed 92% of Americans and 85% of NRA households supported universal background checks.

There are 270 million guns individually owned by private citizens in America ( There are 3 million firearms in the military and 900,000 in law enforcement. There are 300 million people in the US.

Big money - gun manufacturers - bought off politicians.

Yes, USA, where making money is more important than ethics.
