POLL: NRA Members Want Gun Control


PUBLIC SENTIMENT HAS SHIFTED ON
GUN CONTROL, SPECIFICALLY WITHIN THE RANKS OF THE NRA. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? WHEN I SEE IT, TO ME IT SAYS
THIS IS KIND OF AGAINST THE GUN SHOW LOOPHOLE, THIS IS TRYING TO
GET TO COMPREHENSIVE BACKGROUND CHECKS, NO MATTER WHERE YOU
TRY TO GET A GUN AND THAT IS 69% OF PEOPLE THAT ARE NRA
MEMBERS ARE IN SUPPORT OF THAT. REACTION? I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU THIS
GUYS FOR A LONG TIME AND THERE’S A REASON WHY. THERE WAS AN EARLIER POLL IN THE
LAST MASSACRE, NOT EVEN THE LAST ONE, SEVERAL MASSACRES AGO
AND THEY DID A POLL JUST LIKE THIS WHEN THEY TRIED TO GET
FEDERAL BACKGROUND CHECKS TO PASS IN CONGRESS. IN FACT, ONE OF THE NUMBERS IN
THIS POLL ARE SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN THE ONE IN THAT POLL FROM
THAT MASSACRE WHERE 93% OF ALL AMERICANS WANTED FEDERAL
BACKGROUND CHECKS, BUT UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS. THE BACKGROUND CHECK IS, RIGHT
NOW THERE IS A LOOPHOLE IF YOU GO TO WALMART OR A
LICENSED RETAILER YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH A BACKGROUND
CHECK. EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH THAT
BUT INSTEAD OF GOING TO WALMART OR WHATEVER YOU CAN JUST
GO TO A PRIVATE GUN SHOW AND THEN THERE IS NO CHECK, NO
REGULATION. A CRIMINAL CAN GET IT, SOMEBODY
WITH A GIANT RAP SHEET COULD GET IT, A VIOLENT PERSON CAN,
TERRORIST, ANYBODY BECAUSE THERE IS NO CHECK ON IT AT ALL. THAT IS WHY EVEN NRA MEMBERS,
SEVEN OUT OF 10 OF THEM GO, I HAD TO DO A
BACKGROUND CHECK, WHY SHOULDN’T YOU BE ABLE TO DO
A BACKGROUND CHECK? MANY OF THEM DIDN’T BUY AT A
PRIVATE GUN SHOW, MOST AT A RETAILER. THIS IS A MOMENT WERE YOU’RE
LIKE, WE ALL AGREE, CAN WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT? AND TRUMP SAYS, SURE, THAT
SOUNDS A BIT LIKE IT MAKE SENSE BECAUSE I HEARD A NUMBER THAT
MAKES SENSE AND THEN HE DISAPPEARS AND TALKS TO THE NRA
AND THEN HE REAPPEARS AND HE’S LIKE, ACTUALLY, WE CANNOT DO
ANY OF THAT. THAT IS FRUSTRATING. OVERALL NUMBERS, 89% OF
RESPONDENTS WHO DON’T OWN A FIREARM SAID OF COURSE. OF COURSE DO BACKGROUND CHECKS
ON PEOPLE BUYING GUNS, OTHERWISE WE HAVE NO IDEA WHO IS
BUYING THEM. MY FAVORITE STAT IS 78% OF GUN
OWNERS, IF YOU CANNOT PASS A BILL TO DO FEDERAL BACKGROUND
CHECKS ON GUNS WHEN 78% OF GUNOWNERS SAY DO IT, THAT MEANS
WE DO NOT LIVE IN A DEMOCRACY BECAUSE THEORETICALLY THE REASON
THEY ARE NOT DOING IT IS TO PROTECT THE GUNOWNERS AND THEIR
RIGHTS, BUT THE GUNOWNERS SAY, NO, I WANT YOU TO THE BACKGROUND
CHECK. THERE IS ONLY ONE SET OF PEOPLE
IN THE COUNTRY WHO DO NOT WANT THE BACKGROUND CHECK. THOSE OF THE PEOPLE WHO SELL
GUNS. SO WE ARE AT THEIR MERCY, NO
MATTER HOW MANY PEOPLE AGREE.

  1. The liberals can lie all they want with their fake polls and new stories. The proof the people support the NRA is in it's political power. It's motivated base goes out and votes. American's don't want gun control and that is why it hasn't passed. No matter what liberal media and liberal hollywood say. In the age of the internet it's easy for the common man to see the data and come to a conclusion by themselves. That is why liberalism is dying worldwide. Brexit, Donald Trump, Brazil going to allow firearm ownership and Poles rejecting EU. Are all signs that the people are rejecting socialist liberalism as toxic.

  2. A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about

    20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and

    exterminated.

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million

    Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of

    13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were

    rounded up and exterminated.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political

    dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000

    Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

    .

    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians,

    unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million

    educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    56 million defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century

    because of gun control: You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear

    politicians disseminating this information.

    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control

    laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

    Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late! The next time someone talks

    in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson

    .

    With guns, we are "citizens". Without them, we are "subjects".

    During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because

    they knew most Americans were ARMED!

    If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends.

    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
    SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED

    COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
    IT'S A NO BRAINER!

    DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN

    AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

  3. NRA gun owners do not want gun control. All legal gun owners do not want gun control.
    Gun control = socialism, socialism = genocide.

  4. Gun control advocacy group says NRA members want gun control… Forgive me if I'm a bit skeptical.

    Also, you have no clue what you are talking about. If someone at a gun show has a table and sells firearms, they have the customer fill out the 4473 and call NICS before the sale is approved.

  5. You people are idiots what that means is most people are okay with making private sales go through an FFL what they don't tell the people on these polls is that you won't be able to pass a gun down to you grandkid without going through an FFL. You people speak to a mass of sheep who aren't able to understand complex ideas or prossess multiple levels of analysis. Gun show loop hole haha

  6. We DON’T live in a democracy!

    “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”
    -Benjamin Franklin (or Marvin Simkin in Los Angeles Times, it makes little difference)

  7. Cenk of the Young Turds said it all. Not sure if anyone caught it.. He wants to live in a democracy. The U.S. is a constitutional democratic republic. It's what prevents hysterical majorities from passing laws that would subvert your rights recognized and protected by the constitution/ bill of rights. Cry-Bullies like Cenk would favor a pure democracy = 2 wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.

  8. Total Fake News. EVERYONE knows that most gun owners DO NOT like the NRA because they compromise for gun control too much, yet gun owners are members because its the biggest grass roots oganization in the country. Could you imagine the total melt down if LGBTQ compromised on rights like the NRA does? Americans need to stop fighting with each other And STAND for ALL rights!! The only thing the Left and the Right do extremely well is get YOU to let them TAKE the rights of the people.

  9. America has been in existence for 242 years, with the right to keep and bare arms. Government, an entity, liquid, and in flux, you might say, has been subject to manipulation, and control, by lobbyists. Whoever, and whatever has the most money, and ability to influence, is given favor. As we stand, right now, the only two really effective lobbies, that American citizens have ever had to support the needs of the people, in general, are the labor unions, and the NRA. As a side note. Years ago, when I was working midnight shift, I'd gotten home from work, and sat down to eat, with the television tuned into C Span, Book Review. As it happened, the then president of the NRA, Charlton Heston. was on, having been talking about the book he wrote about our country's heritage. It was toward the end of the book review show, and ending credits were on the screen, yet the press was still asking questions. Among those the questions I noted, were #1. How did being a screen actor prepare you for being president of the NRA ? Answer : Politics is performing(shortened version). QUESTION #2 What, would you say, is the largest demographic group, of NRA members in our country ? Answer : labor unionists. I'm guessing most people haven't seen the movie: "Jack Strong". It's a true story about a Polish Army Colonel, who spied against the Soviets, for the U.S., during the cold war. Jack Strong was the code name of the Colonel. Him and his family were smuggled out of Poland, after he revealed to the U.S. the list of Solidarity Movement labor union members, who were to be gathered up for, presumably execution, by the Soviets.

  10. The gun show loophole DOESN'T exist go to a gun show and ask a seller if you can buy a gun without a background check and they'll answer NOPE can't without a background check your not getting a gun.

  11. NRA is also infiltrated and rigged now. Not paying anymore membership fees. their recent stand on simple bump stocks is unbelievable. We all know if anyone want to REALLY build an automatic weapon, its super easy with a few minor modifications on the existing semi-auto platform. so its stupid to introduce all these small regulations which will grind away our 2nd amendment rights gradually.

  12. Stupid dumbasses. There was already background checks at gunshows. Everyone selling at a gun show has a FFL and is required by law to do a check. Morons. Gunhole loophole my ass.

  13. No. No, I don't want gun control. Not the brand you're selling, at least. I want the exiting system to work, so that some child-beating chairforce flunkie can't get a hold of a weapon because a desk jokey couldn't file some paperwork. I want the FBI to do their jobs and investigate tips that someone's planning a shooting. I want armed police to actually do something when a shooting is in progress, instead of cowering and fear and setting up a safe perimeter while children are being butchered.

    That's the baseline position. That's a person who supports background checks. Think about that 31% that doesn't. That's not some tiny minority, that's huge. That's very nearly 1 in 3. If you sit down in a room full of NRA members, chances are you're sitting next to a person who doesn't support background checks. So no, we don't 'All agree.'
    -A NRA Member

  14. Why do I need an AR 15 ? Answer private ownership in America is not based on need that's the communist system The question you should be asking is why l and millions of law abiding citizens what an AR 15 Answer because is awesome rifle

  15. I’m fine with doing a background check. However, the government will have to regulate the price of the background check. They already made a law that you have to have car insurance, but the insurance companies can charge whatever they want. Then they made a law that you have to have health insurance but the insurance companies can charge whatever they want. I can only imagine how much a dealer would charge for a background check if they make it a law that you have to have it and the dealer can charge whatever he wants.

  16. Once again, these idiots' verbal crap floats on the surface, but they're too lazy to actually research their statements. Cenk has no idea that background checks don't currently stop criminals, or for God's sake, terrorists, from buying guns. What the hell??? "Well, if all law-abiding citizens are put through background checks, then criminals will not be able to buy guns." Right, Cenk, you unmitigated moron?

    And stop throwing around "gun show loophole" when you have no real idea of what it means or what the stats are behind it, you retarded ape. Since you guys don't have real jobs why don't you spend some time researching how guns used in crimes were purchased, or otherwise obtained? Oh, that's right, facts hurt your feelings. The accepted statistic is that less than 10% of crimes committed with guns occurred when the criminal purchased a firearm "legally". And if that 10% did, in fact, undergo background checks and still committed a crime with that weapon, well…

    Again I'll ask, why don't we ban alcohol, since it is responsible for so many deaths? You say, blame the alcoholic, not the alcohol. Amirite????

  17. alcohol kills many thousands time more people than guns, many many more. I say we ban all alcohol and punish those who use it with death by AR-15 firing squad

  18. As in the case of utube, they are taking a stance against gun videos that are legal. They are becoming judge and jury. There dictatilng video content that breaks no laws. I hope the gun community finds a user friendly social media platform where our laws are not violated.

  19. Why no outrage about wanting more knife control? Why no calls for the banning of swimming pools or ladders? They cause more death every year then AR-15's. There's more people that are beat to death with fists and feet then AR-15's!!Why won't anyone single leftist, progressive, Democrat explain what more gun control they want!! I keep hearing more gun control from everyone but not 1 single answer as to what they want! Do you want to ban the AR-15?? Why? There end game for gun control is the FULL REPEAL OF THE 2ND AMENDMENT!!They tell us that an AR-15 is the most evil gun out there. The only thing I can think is they don't like the"evil" pistol grip,bayonet lug,flash suppressor and that horrible collapsible stalk!! They want to ban the AR-15 but not a Ruger mini-14? The only difference between the 2 is cosmetic features! The Ruger mini-14 shoots the same .223 round but has a pretty wood stalk! They tell us guns kill people!! Well, for protection they may have to be used to defend oneself. The police can't protect us all the time. There so anti gun they also want to ban the Ruger 10/22 ,a .22l.r.!! You kidding me! Please explain your end game for more gun control!!

  20. Hmmm.  I don't know of anyone regardless of membership in the NRA, that want "more" gun control.  TYT is STILL pathetic.  Can anyone…to include Cenk or his Socialist friends honetsty say that there is a "private gun show" loophole?   Any licensed gun seller (those with a FFL) MUST do the background checks.  The only ones that are exempted are true private sellers such as you or me that are selling a gun or two….just like we would a used car.

  21. Bc of these stupid ass laws it takes days for me to buy a rifle.. I'm an NRA member and i do not approve of this message

  22. Im fine with 21 age limit, waiting periods, back ground checks for ALL purchases, but not any weapons bans. NRA Member here too

  23. Hi Conservatives thinking your side is smart. Welcome to the comment section. Please make sure to mention Franklin and Jefferson whilst looking at your base.

  24. Your right we live in a republic not a democracy. Also surprise we already have background checks. Keep your greedy fingers off my rights libtards

  25. You are wasting your time. If you want our guns, come and get them. If you think the police and military are going to take them; they're on our side

  26. Even if these psychos targeted NRA meetings instead of schools the NRA would still want to lobby for relaxed gun laws…freaks

  27. That would be 69% of POLLED NRA members NOT 69% of ALL NRA members big difference. I do not support them as the government has been routinely incompetent in trying to weed people out by simply not doing their jobs like investigating failed background checks.

    -NRA member.
    -NRA certified firearms instructor.
    -3 gun competitor 2 years.

  28. One thing is the "wish list" of us NRA members, another is that of NRA executives whose main objective is to keep those membership fees coming in to maintain their lavish lifestyles, while ensuring the sales of all types of guns–hand or high power riffles remains high–regardless of the consequences of how those weapons are used in our streets and communities. They have used a distorted rhetoric about us Americans giving up our liberty, but in fact what we are really giving up is our sense for civility. All one has to do is compare our gun-relates murder rates to that of any other developed country (or undeveloped for that matter). Time to put a stop to this non-sense. Definitely not renewing my membership until they compromise and promote strict gun control measures.

  29. So much emphases is placed on background checks like that is the ultimate thing to do to stop these killing PLEASE! I see that is simply Busy Work, We just talked about those that committed mass shooting that PASSED BACKGROUND CHECKS.

  30. I have a question about these comprehensive background checks. HIPPA laws are about medical privacy. Do those laws also protect mental health issues that Police and gun retailers need to know? If that info is guarded, then how can Police and gun retailers ever know?

  31. 98% of people who die in traffic accidents were wearing a seatbelt. Therefore wearing your seatbelt increases your chances of dying in a traffic accident. One can manipulate statistics in many ways to support ones own point of view.

  32. I have a AR 15 A2 20 in and I call her old Betsey I can hit a 10×12 steel plate 10 out of 10 600 hundred yards open sights

  33. The NRA is just like every other group or lobby, THEY BUY POLITICIANS. They make gun owners look bad by fighting things like background checks. I support "control", I DO NOT SUPPORT AN INEFFECTIVE "ASSAULT RIFLE" BAN.

  34. My dad bought his guns at a private party outside a gun show. And guess what I have them now. So any mother fucker wants to break into my house while I'm watching TV or in bed or taking a shower or making love to my man ( haha yes I'm a woman ) they are getting a bullet up their ass.

  35. mehhh, we need to ban pencils, someone could kill anyone with it, hurry up please before anymore would die from it… Come on wake up, you can make collateral damage from few instruments, even sjw could kill with a screaming unbearable voice.

  36. I thing the YOUNG TURKS ARE LYING AS USUAL. We already have 20,000 gun control laws in this country and liberals demand even more. Truth is LIBERALS WANT OUTRIGHT FIREARMS BANS and CONFISCATION NOTHING LESS.

  37. Let's be very clear. The corrupt organization known as the NRA has about five million members. There are over 100 MILLION GUN OWNERS in America. This means AT BEST only about FIVE PERCENT of American gun owners are NRA members. This fact alone speaks of the arrogance and failure of the NRA to protect the rights of law abiding Americans. The Five Million members of the NRA do NOT want more gun control. The NRA does NOT speak for ALL gun owners. The video is lying. What is a despicably sad truth is less then five percent of gun owners VOTE! The NRA knows this—so, what have you seen the NRA doing about teaching gun owners to get involved in the voting process?? Answer–absolutely NOTHING!!!

  38. Gun control as defined by one side is not the same as the other. If asked about gun control most would agree. What are the controls? And Cenk is right about 1 thing: we don't live in a Democracy. He finally got something right. It's a Constitutional Republic. Even a moron can be right on accident.

  39. March For Our Rights Protest Will Be Next If You Want To See A Real Protest Organized By Conservatives! If a criminal walks into your home pointing a gun at you and your family demanding anything the criminal wants to do to your family, your going to be standing under the criminals control with a stupid and scared look on your face because you cant kill a criminal who is raping your family and you will have to just take it! Families need guns and ammunition in their homes for protection! Another reason why we have a right to bear arms is if our government turns on the people, we the people can form a malitia against the government who turned on us! Taking guns away and a right to protect yourself will place you into a world of communism because the only people who will have guns would be the criminals out to harm you and the government, knowing citizens dont have these rights anymore will bring control and power over your life just like communism, this is the first action to take of some of the most evil dictators and leaders in history! Take the guns from the people and you will have complete control over the people! Now, if we need to form a malitia against our government that turns on us, we will need all guns around to win the war and take our lives back! An AR-15 would help our advantage against our government if we had to form a malitia alot better than pea shooters or short range rifles and pistols, we need the right to bear arms with all protection, in case we have to take our lives back from a government or criminal who has turned on us!!! WAKE UP!!! Communism is not what you want! Unless you enjoy being under somoene elses control! Me personaly. . I like to call my own Shots!58

  40. The only NRA member they could find to support gun control, are the ones from their own crew, that signed up right before taking the poll! This is literally a show of young retards. Talking non stop does not make it true guys!

  41. Every state already requires a background check. What you are referring to is individual to individual sales. This is the very very small minority of firearm sales. Just like most of your causes, it has no relevance in the overall scheme of things. How about this, go find something that will actually make some sort of difference and advocated for that. Oh, wait, that might be hard and more complicated than something you are capable of explaining or your average TYT follower capable of comprehending.

  42. Cenk…… Wipe that bacon grease off your face listen to me very carefully. Remember that one percent you mentioned? That 3 million? Those are what we like to call career criminals/psychopaths and mentally disturbed people

    What makes you think passing a law would deter their insanely cunning intent?

  43. Stop with the gun show loop hole that does not exist. The last gun I bought at a gun show I had to go through a background check. The only time you dont have to go through a background check is between two individuals who want to make a gun transaction between themselves. Even then responsible people go to the gun store to have a background check done on the person who is buying their gum just to be sure. It's $20.00 to have a background check done.

  44. I disagree with NRA here. No gun control whatsoever. Infact, repeal Hughes Amendment and let people own Machine Guns.

  45. Fake News coming from a Fake News Stream about a Fake Poll from a Fake Public Interest Group. Color me surprised.
