Poll: 28 Percent of Democrats Say Being NRA Member Should be Illegal

According to a new Rasmussen poll, 28 percent of Democrats said being a National Rifle Association member should be illegal.

The survey results of 1,000 likely voters released Monday also found that 32 percent of Democrats said the NRA should be declared a terrorist organization in the communities where they live.

San Francisco’s government last week unanimously voted to declare the NRA a terrorist organization, and the NRA sued San Francisco over the measure Monday.

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.

A version of this story appears on The Blaze website.

    Being a COMMUNIST DEMOCRAT IS TREASON. They should all be arrested for being traitors to our country and blatantly denying the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      No, actually, it’s not. Attempting to overthrow the Government is treason. Spyiing for a foreign power is treason. But being a communist? NOT treason. The is the United States of America. THIS is freedom to believe whatever you want to believe, even when it’s the stupidest thing on the planet.

    Rasmussen Reports
    Evaluations of accuracy and performance

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rasmussen_Reports#Evaluations_of_accuracy_and_performance

    A 2017 article by Chris Cillizza for CNN raised doubts about Rasmussen’s accuracy, drawing attention specifically to potential sampling biases such as the exclusion of calls to cell-phones (which, Cillizza argued, tended to exclude younger voters), and also more generally to a lack of methodological disclosure. Cillizza did, however, note in the same piece that Rasmussen was one of the more accurate polling organizations during the 2016 United States presidential election.[93]

    A December 2018 article by political writer and analyst Harry Enten called Rasmussen the least accurate pollster in the 2018 midterm elections after stating Rasmussen had projected the Republicans to come ahead nationally by one point, while at the time Democrats were actually winning the national House vote by 8.6 points – an error of nearly 10 points.[94]

    I do not believe any NRA member has ever been implicated in a mass shooting. In fact, most mass shooters have been Democrats. Maybe we should designate the Democratic Party as a “domestic terrorist organization…” ya-think…?!?!?

    28% of Democrats say that…….THAT means that 72% of Democrats DON’T say that
