89 Percent of NRA Members Oppose a Semi-Auto Ban

Think the national news media reports the truth? Think again. For weeks now, gun-control advocates have claimed data they have collected indicate a majority of NRA members support an assault-weapon ban. Only problem is such organizations have no access to NRA membership roles.

But the NRA Institute for Legislative Action does, and its findings are eye-opening.

A scientific poll conducted for NRA-ILA by OnMessage Inc. from Jan. 13 to 14, 2013, of 1,000 individuals indicates 89 percent of NRA members oppose banning semi-automatic firearms, often mistakenly called “assault rifles.” Ninety-one percent of NRA members support laws keeping firearms away from the mentally ill.

The other 11% should have their membership revoked.

What's with the 11% who think a ban is OK? Better education is the key.

What's wrong with the 11% who don't oppose an "assault rifle" ban? If you don't like the way they look or you consider them useless, don't buy one. Just because you have no use for one doesn't mean I might not have a use for one. They are used for National Match shoots. They make good varmint rifles. As for high capacity magazines, well, I can switch out a mag pretty damned fast and as far as I am concerned two mags are better than one and three are better than two, so what's the difference? It's all in the mind of the beholder.
