A stunning new survey from Rasmussen reveals nearly one third of Democrats believe joining the National Rifle Association should be “illegal” following a series of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas.
“The National Rifle Association is America’s largest gun rights organization with more than five million members. But a sizable number of Democrats views it as a terrorist group and believes it should be against the law for Americans to belong to pro-gun rights organizations like the NRA,” reports Rasmussen.
“Twenty-eight percent (28%) of Democrats say Americans should be prohibited by law from belonging to pro-gun rights organizations like the NRA, a view shared by 15% of Republicans and 10% of uanffiliateds. Among all likely voters, 23% favor declaring the NRA a terrorist organization in their home community, while 18% think it should be against the law to belong to pro-gun rights groups like the NRA,” adds the survey.
The National Rifle Association sued the City of San Francisco this week after their Board of Supervisors labeled the Second Amendment advocacy group a “domestic terror organization.”
“The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against the city and county of San Francisco and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. It accuses city officials of violating the gun lobby’s free speech rights for political reasons and claims the city is trying to blacklist anyone associated with the NRA from doing business there,” reports Fox News.
“Corporate America has also taken a political stance on gun control in recent years. Delta Airlines ceased discounts for NRA members, and Walmart, CVS, Walgreens and Albertsons chains have all asked customers to not openly carry firearms into their stores, even in states where it is legal to do so,” adds Fox.
The Board of Supervisors officially labeled the NRA a ‘terror organization’ after a series of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas.
