how many members does the nra have now?
I too am one of those new members, as of about two weeks ago.
Already was a member, but its a good time to upgrade your membership or gift one to a friend or relative.
I personally think that changes such as background checks on all sales (gun show loophole as it is referred to in the media) and possibly high capacity mags will be part of proposed legislation changes.
There are 4.2M members of the NRA (thanks danlfam, I looked;-), supposedly 80M gun owners, 220M eligible voters, and 160M registered voters.
How many people do you believe think that there should be background checks on all sales. How many believe 10 rnds is more than enough. Think 17 congressmen in those states might want to keep their jobs? National AWB? I am not so sure. Background checks on private sales. I do think so. Limited capacity. I think so again. Just my opinion on the numbers.
I upgraded from life member to the endowment level and gave two memberships as gifts. Talked to a younger friend about the need to preserve our rights and he joined as well. We need to increase that 100,000 number ten fold! We need to add 1,000,000 more!
Im one just joined today. Took 45min to get threw on phone.
Thanks to all of you new NRA members. Want to get more involved in the fight to preserve and protect your rights? Simply sign up another member and offer to pay their first year of membership for them? A very small price to help fight for freedom.
I re-joined the week after Sandy Hook. I won't let it expire this time.
If I've done my math correctly, there are 228 million US citizens over the age of 18. NRA membership is 4.2 million. That means that nearly 2% of all adults in the US are NRA members. Of course the number of gun owners is much larger. Estimates range from 39% to 50% of US adults own at least one gun. This is a powerful constituency if groups like the NRA and others can get these owners mobilized. Please join the NRA or the gun rights organization of your choice, your rights are at stake NOW!
I gifted my stepson, and I am going to gift my other stepson and my grandson and grandaughter as well. By the way, to all the other members here that joined or gifted someone. THANK YOU!!
