How bitter was the taste in the mouth of CNN’s AJ Willingham when she reported that donations to the NRA tripled after the Parkland shooting?
In the days and weeks following the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the National Rifle Association saw a significant spike in donations.
In fact, reports from the Federal Election Commission show donations to the NRA’s Political Victory Fund tripled from January to February.
It’s called the Streisand Effect. Millions of Americans see the 24/7 attacks against the nation’s oldest civil rights organization and hear their members and themselves called murderous Nazis with blood on their hands. They know those attacks are politically motivated, vicious, and blatantly false. They then figure they have to do what they can to counter the pervasive, media enabled anti-gun message.
Does that describe you? Have you written a check or joined the NRA since Parkland. If not the NRA, how about the SAF, GOA or NAGR? Some other local group perhaps?
