The National Rifle Association (NRA) has added 500,000 new members over the last month and a half.
Jacqueline Otto, media liaison for the NRA, spoke to CNSNews.com and confirmed the new membership numbers:
"We mark that [membership increase] from the, you know, Congressional calls for gun control and President Obama's executive orders and things like that. That's what's driving the increased membership."
CNSNews.com asked: "That's approximately over what time span then?"
"A month, month and a half," Otto said.
The addition of 500,000 new members over the last month and a half works out to more than 10,000 per day and brings the total NRA membership to approximately 4.5 million nationwide.
