NRA Members Nearly Unanimous

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action conducted a national scientific poll of its members and found near unanimity among NRA members on a wide range of issues involving mental health reform and firearm rights. Findings include:

  • 91% of NRA members support laws keeping firearms away from the mentally ill.
  • 92% of NRA members oppose gun confiscation via mandatory buy-back laws.

  • 89% oppose banning semi-automatic firearms, often mistakenly called “assault rifles”.

  • 93% oppose a law requiring gun owners to register with the federal government.

  • 92% oppose a new federal law banning the sale of firearms between private citizen.

Question: Are these views in line with yours?
