NRA Members Agree With New Gun Regulation Suggestions
Gun advocates like "common sense" regulation
With the "Dark Knight Rises" shootings in Colorado fresh on everyone's minds, many have been looking to see if the National Rifle Association has anything to say about gun control. The answer may surprise you.
Findings from a poll conducted in May show that the anti-gun control NRA is actually for "common sense gun regulation."
The poll took answers from a number of NRA members and found that they agree with the following suggestions:
- Requiring criminal background checks on gun owners and gun shop employees.
Prohibiting terrorist watch list members from acquiring guns.
- Mandating that gun-owners tell the police when their gun is stolen.
Concealed carry permits should only be restricted to individuals who have completed a safety training course and are 21 and older.
- Concealed carry permits shouldn’t be given to perpetrators of violent misdemeanors or individuals arrested for domestic violence.
The poll spoke with roughly 945 NRA members, but not people considered to be officials in the organization.
