NRA announces drive to sign up 100,000 new members in 100 days

The National Rifle Association announced a membership drive on Thursday with the goal of signing up 100,000 new members in the next 100 days.

“The NRA’s strength is in our dedicated and politically savvy members, ” Jason J. Brown, NRA media relations administrator, told the Washington Free Beacon . “Over the next 100 days we hope to welcome 100,000 new freedom-loving Americans to our ranks. The threat to our Second Amendment has never been greater.”

The NRA’s membership drive comes soon after gun-control activists held nationwide rallies last month demanding new firearm forbids and age restrictions on purchase pistols. The organizers behind the March for Our Lives rally managed to raise over$ 3 million dollars, much of which is now being given to a 501( c )( 4) advocacy organization that plans to continue lobbying beyond the processions.

It also arrives after a number of states have passed new restrictive gun-control measures. Republican governors in Florida and Vermont have even reversed their previous pro-gun positions to sign two of the most sweeping new gun-control statutes in the country. The NRA has already challenged the Florida law in court.

The NRA told new memberships in its own 501( c )( 4) nonprofit are necessary to combat further restrictions on handgun rights.
