Something peculiar is happening in the wake of the anti-gun rhetoric coming from mainstream media and protesters demanding more gun control: Interest in the National Rifle Association and its memberships is soaring through the roof.
In fact, Google searches for the term “NRA membership” are up 4,900 percent since the Feb. 14 school shooting in Florida that took 17 lives, the London Daily Mail reported.
As WND reported, some student survivors of the Valentine’s Day massacre at a Florida high school are planning March for Our Lives protests in 50 cities on March 24 to demand increased gun-control legislation. The effort has the backing of major left-wing activist groups and celebrities. Organizations such as MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood, the Women’s March LA, Everytown for Gun Safety, Giffords, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and the American Federation of Teachers are fueling the movement.
One of the most outspoken student survivors and anti-gun activists is David Hogg. Some casual gun-rights supporters said attacks by Hogg and the media inspired them to sign up for the NRA.
