As Twitchy has told you, donations to the NRA’s Political Victory Fund have skyrocketed in the last few weeks and NRA memberships are also on the rise. An article at the HuffPost claims this is the reason:
An NRA offensive since the Parkland school shooting appears to be working. The number of donors and overall contributions are surging. https://t.co/JMhmZTaWTy

The “NRA offensive”?
That’s not why contributions are surging https://t.co/YbfohPTndF

Who wants to tell them?
It's an NRA defensive. We all see the gun-grabbers coming a mile away

You mean defending itself against lies that it's somehow responsible for murders while the Broward County Sheriff's Office gets a pass despite their repeated failures? Is that an "offensive" these days?
A lot of us donated because we're annoyed as hell at that. https://t.co/XSOsKQfmE7

Ha! You think it's because of an "NRA offensive"? I'm sure it couldn't POSSIBLY be because Americans don't take too kindly to progressives threatening to take away constitutional rights. https://t.co/J7Ua7Z58QY

Or maybe the organized efforts of the media, the Democratic party, high profile activist groups and wealthy celebrities targeting our civil rights in the insanity of a mass hysteria event has something to do with it. https://t.co/McTgfkEkNY

The backfire of the Left’s rush to blame the NRA for another mass shooting has been immense:
I (a regular American citizen) reupped my membership for 2 years and gifted 5 members of my family, memberships. the @NRA thanks you Democrats for your membership drive.

I became a life member… And made my son and two of my friends life members.

Right right – the NRA offensive is working. Not the misinformed messages of fools backfiring. https://t.co/jexyOUHNiJ

"We lied about you and it backfired, so what you're doing now is an 'offensive'" https://t.co/TkfhVoRgsH

I want to thank Democrats for making me realize how important it was for me to join the NRA. I am a life member and proud. These are the same Democrats by the way that convince me to vote Trump. Funny how that worked 🇺🇸
