The following article, Terrifying New Poll Says 28 Percent Of Dems Think Being Member Of The NRA Should Be Illegal, was first published on Flag And Cross.
A brand new Rasmussen poll has been released and the results are pretty doggone scary for anyone who believes in the God-given right to own a gun for protection against criminals and tyranny.
According to 28 percent of Democrats, being a member of the National Rifle Association should be illegal.
Yes, that’s right. If you think you have the right to bear arms and seek to be part of an organization that shares your views, think again. The left wants to take that away from you.
As for Republicans, 14 percent agree with deeming the NRA a terrorist organization, and 15 percent said being an NRA member should be illegal, the poll found.
Among all likely voters, 47 percent say NRA members are less likely to commit a gun crime while 13 percent of all voters — and only 17 percent of Democrats — said they’re more likely, the poll noted. In addition, 57 percent of all Americans say stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws is more important than creating new gun control laws, the poll found.
Most Americans with guns in their homes said they make them feel safer, the poll also found, and 70 percent agree that “it’s not the gun that pulls the trigger; it’s the person that pulls the trigger.”
The poll was conducted Sept. 5 and 8, Rasmussen said, adding that the margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.
The right to own a gun is one that is grounded in our being image bearers of God, our Creator having established in Exodus 22 that all people have the right to defend their own lives, the lives of family, and so on, even if it means committing an act of violence against another human being.
Being part of the NRA is a way for those of us who believe in the critical importance of owning a gun to fellowship with like-minded individuals who share our passion for firearms. If this should be illegal, perhaps all feminist organizations that support the murder of the unborn should be made illegal as well?
Say that to a group of these people who think that way and watch how they respond. It won’t be pretty.
Such awful double-standards.
