NRA Membership Soars To Record High As Corporate Boycott Backfires

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community
Hundreds of thousands of Americans have joined the NRA in the past week, pushing membership of the association to a record high.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans have joined the National Rifle Association in the past week, pushing membership of the oldest civil rights association in the country to an all-time record high.

The NRA now boasts over 5.5 million paying members, up from just over 5 million before the liberal outrage mob decided to blame the organization for the Florida school shooting and pressure corporate sponsors to cut longstanding ties with the association.

A dozen corporations who offered discounts to NRA members have cowered in the face of liberal mob bullying and ended their association, but the corporate boycott is beginning to backfire and it appears the companies ending their relationships will have no lasting effects on the NRA — and seem to be actually help the pro-Second Amendment organization expand its membership.

Before last week, membership in the National Rifle Association meant gaining access to a broad range of discounts from corporate partners including Delta, United Airlines, and Hertz.

In response to the NRA boycott, thousands of people are posting on social media they have decided to join the NRA because they believe in freedom, the Second Amendment and stand opposed to the liberal outrage mob unfairly placing responsibility on the NRA for the Florida shooting.

Others posted they had upgraded their memberships to higher levels.

Since the boycott the NRA’s phones have been ringing off the hook. Call center workers who usually sign up a few people per day now have a few people on hold at all times. They are signing one person up after another.

The #TweetYourNRAMembership hashtag contains thousands of posts and the number of people joining the NRA is swelling. Hundreds of thousands of people have joined the NRA because of the boycott, and it appears the boycott will only help the NRA — not hurt it.
