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.

    How much does it cost to join the NRA? I can’t yet, but I’d like to know for the future.

  • @NCCoastalRltr

    I too have just this week joined the NRA along with my husband and also just picked up my Conceal Carry Permit. #my2Aright

  • http://twitter.com/onewhocansee Jon

    There are different lengths of membership. A one year membership is $35 all the way up to a lifetime membership which is $1000, but you can pay that in installments of $25 monthly or quarterly.

    You might also want to consider supporting the Second Amendment Foundation which was the organization that won the Heller victory in the Supreme Court


  • orringtonmom (D)

    waiting for the lib headline “NRA Capitolizes on CT Shooting Tragedy”

    • NachoCheese (D)

      All while censoring the fact that the Obama campaign has solicited donations in emails about Obama’s speech in Newtown.

      • orringtonmom (D)

        i know… what the heck is that about? what campaign? supreme ruler of the universe?

  • Jack Deth

    I predicted this outcome early Monday morning.

    Happens most every time after a tragedy with firearms and the left’s annoying, disgusting knee jerk ban reaction.

    Well done, all!

    I used to respect Joyce Carol Oates. Now I realize — what an idiot. Worse, another so-called “humanist” who has no understanding of freedom. Another “complex and nuanced” liberal who has no concept of the paradox and challenge of liberty. God save us from the intellectuals, for they are indeed the most dangerously stupid among us.

    • redheadgrl

      I know, I really liked her books.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    Procrastinated for years, but I’ve had it with the gun-grabbers and the bloody cost of their policies. I’m in. Even if it money is tight, 60 bucks to get to the 2014 elections, where we can clean out the SEnate, makes sense.

  • rinodino

    Like I said, Twitchy is the new onion, lol…… not even a week later and you nut jobs are celebrating joining a gun club, please send all your exciting news to the people of Newtown, I’m sure they will enjoy that you are so happy about the NRA, smdh

    • JeannieJ

      Dave, I understand that you’d feel so much better if we “nut jobs” would stand by and be willing victims and sacrifices to the leftist ideology, but it’s not in our nature. We are the ones who objected to the left’s acts of politicizing the deaths of these children. Heck, doesn’t “right to life” mean anything to you? We’re very much into children living and growing into productive and stable adults! Those who’ve joined the NRA have done nothing wrong, and someone like you cannot make them believe that they did.

    • Sketti

      Way to elevate the discussion Dave! /rolleyes

    • Lord Foggybottom

      And I’ll counter that, in hindsight, the people of Newtown would have been thrilled if the school personnel were armed because their children would still be alive today.

      Do you even understand why so many people are joining the NRA? You’re a giant lefty and I know you don’t understand the concept of personal protection, but do you also not understand the concept of protest?

    • BeeKaaay

      Typical leftwingwacko. They don’t believe in human rights.

    • Lord Foggybottom

      Also, anyone who writes lol in their sentences is immediately dismissed as either stupid or a child. I’m figuring you for both.

      Excellent find!

  • torpedoman2002

    I joined the NRA three days ago. I cannot afford a new gun in this economy so I did the next best thing.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      How much is it, I am in the same predicament?

      • torpedoman2002

        $35 for 1 year $60 for 2 years and $1000 for a lifetime membership. There is a option to pay the lifetime membership with payments of $25 per month or quarterly. Here is the link for the membership page.


        I went with one year for now. It fit my finances for now but I intend to remain a member for the rest of my life. So I will upgrade to the lifetime membership as soon as possible.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          Thanks, I will join them, but I have to hear what “meaningful contributions” they are going to give in their press conference tomorrow, I just hope that they dont pander, or back down, or give anything to the left.

          • torpedoman2002

            I don’t thank they will with 8000 new members a day. They don’t want to lose these new members and we didn’t sign up so they can make a deal with the Dems. I’m wanting to see what they say tomorrow also.

          • louisiana_mom

            That’s what I’m waiting for also. It seems so many want to move to the Left lately to accomodate the Democrats. I will not back anyone or anything that MOVES their position because the Left moved the center line – again!

  • Emjay Grakykat

    I’d let my membership lapse a long time ago but this past week renewed at a lifetime member level.

  • BeeKaaay

    And the leftwingwacko trolls are here saying the usual stuff. “Let the government take your guns away. We absolutely promise that the thugs and criminals won’t hurt you with their guns. Pinky promise!!!!!”

  • Bob Smooper

    The NRA is secretly a Satanist group who are working for the devil. The devil wants an armed population so that on Judgement Day people shoot all the angels as they fly up to heaven.

    All NRA members are devil worshippers!

    we dropped our NRA membships when they came out supporting all those fecal democrats in the election, but after this maybe they will rethink that lying democrat BS. and this entire 100% AMERICAN family rejoined the NRA on Saturday morning.
