NRA sees a huge surge in membership interest after Parkland | Daily Mail Online

Google searches for 'NRA membership' have risen roughly 4,900 percent since the week before the February 14 shooting, with new members flocking to support the gun owners' rights group

Some otherwise casual gun rights supporters said that the loud attacks on the NRA in the media by young Parkland survivors such as David Hogg drove them to sign up

'Thank you David Hogg for inspiring me,' one Twitter user wrote. 'I gifted my husband with an NRA membership. I felt now was an important time to support them,' she continued, adding a screenshot of the membership confirmation email.

'After ten minutes of CNN's town hall "debate" I had already searched for gun safes, the closest firearms dealer near me, classes on gun safety, and an NRA membership,' wrote Robert Norman in a column for the Federalist.

No clear data on how many of those google searches for nra membership turned into members, but, a 4,900 percent increase since just feb 14th, and on just google alone, not counting other search engines. Has to translate into many new members.

I was rather happy to read that people were so put off by the clear media bias and attacks on the nra, that they are looking to join.

Every cloud (the obvious media bias, NOT the shooting) has a silver lining.

Im not sure how the members here feel about this but am I the only one who feels like the Gun Owners of America is a better organization to put your money toward if your going to do so?

Why not join both? I'm considering it....I just re-upped with the NRA and it's good to see the membership increase right now.

I do have some questions for the GOA, but I think that is another thread entirely.

I just joined them about a month ago and feel the same way. Maybe people can join them as well and make both bigger and more powerful? I started telling some anti gunners that they should consider joining. When they ask why, I tell them that the NRA and GOA are fighting for their rights as well. I tell them that they are fighting for your right to choose to not have a firearm and not letting the government decide for you. They kinda look puzzled after that. :eek::)

Yep, join all you can afford to, they are not the only thing standing up for the 2nd, but they are among the strongest ones doing it.
