Gallup: Majority of Americans approve of the NRA
Quote:With all of the vocal and vociferous hatred directed at the National Rifle Association, in general and especially in the wake of the Newtown massacre, it would be easy to think that the NRA is a highly unpopular organization whose deplorable degree of ill-begotten political clout only comes from some nefarious combination of money and corruption.

The actual reason that the NRA has so much political clout, however, is merely because it has so much popular support. Progressives are quick to point out as fact that the NRA tirelessly works against both the American majority and widespread common sense, but the NRA has over four million active members and most Americans hold a favorable opinion of the organization, according to Gallup:

After all this, Gallup says NRA has 54% favorable rating. That's a point higher than Obama's average favorable rating from recent polls.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
