Little David Hogg and his merry band of teenage civilian disarmament advocates still have a lot of work to do. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, the National Rifle Association is still held in high regard by a solid majority of Americans.
You might think that after the media-enabled pounding the NRA’s taken since the Parkland massacre, they’d be the most hated organization in the US of A. Au contraire, mon frere.
The poll found that the NRA is still seen in a positive light by a solid 54% of Americans. To no one’s surprise, men have the highest regard for the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, with more than 58% percent approval rating. More surprising is the number for women, who, when polled, generally take a dimmer view of firearms and tend to favor more gun control legislation. But Reuters/Ipsos showed that even 51.4% of women have a positive view of the NRA.
One important caveat. The poll was taken between February 12 and March 12. That period included almost a sold month of the civilian disarmament industrial complex pushing their anti-NRA agitprop. But that was three weeks ago. The March for our Lives didn’t happen until March 24, and a lot more anti-gun artillery has been hurled at the NRA since then.
Still, it just goes to show that reports of the NRA’s demise have always been greatly exaggerated. David “Camera” Hogg and his fellow moppets have sold a lot of guns since Parkland. We’d guess they’ve also managed to sell a lot of new NRA memberships, too. Thanks, Dave.
