The National Rifle Association reports that its membership is rapidly swelling even as Democrats and the Obama administration gear up for a major push to enact new gun-control laws.
The NRA reports it has added more than 100,000 members in the past 18 days. Membership of the pro-Second Amendment organization now stands at 4.2 million.
“Our goal is to get to 5 million before this debate is over,” an NRA source told Politico.
NRA officials are meeting Thursday with the Obama administration’s emissary on the issue, Vice President Joe Biden. NRA leaders say they are willing to discuss any “reasonable proposals and plans,” but will not compromise on Second Amendment rights.
