NRA Adding More Than 10,000 New Members - Per Day!

By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. | January 30, 2013 | 10:32am EST

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.
