Whoops! Despite the best efforts of ghoulish gun-grabbers like Michael Moore, Joyce Carol Oates, Marg Helgenberger and Piers “Musket” Morgan to demonize gun ownership, the NRA reports a significant surge in membership.
The National Rifle Association, while staying mostly quiet in the immediate aftermath of the mass shooting in Connecticut, has registered an average of 8,000 new members a day since the tragedy, an NRA source told Fox News.
Not surprising. The Obama administration announced its new focus on gun control and senators were quick to crank up the anti-gun heat after the shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn. The result? An Obama stimulus that finally works as gun store shelves empty and lines stretch out the door.
Citizens take self-defense seriously, and some say they were inspired to join the NRA this week after anti-gun zealots threatened their Second Amendment rights.

Well done, Joyce! Kudos, Musket Morgan! We’re sure the NRA appreciates your fine work. And those new NRA members are far from alone:

Even people who don’t own firearms bristled at the attacks on gun owners and were inspired to join the NRA in support of liberty.
The message is loud and clear: Americans won’t stand for freedom-stomping gun-grabbers using a horrific tragedy to advance their anti-liberty agenda. And they won’t sit idly by while those who defend freedom are threatened and demonized by holier-than-thou politicians and celebs.
