Google Searches on ‘NRA Membership’ Hit Record Levels During Student Gun Control March

While students marched for gun control in Washington, DC, Americans were doing Google searches on “NRA membership” at a record pace.

The Daily Caller reported that searches for the term “NRA membership” surged to “peak popularity” on Google during the student gun control event. And the Daily Wire noted that, when the last 14 years of search data for the term “NRA membership” was examined, it showed “searches for the phrase spiked higher over the weekend than … in response to the gun control push and campaign against the NRA after Sandy Hook.”

Google searches for the term “NRA membership” rose significantly, but briefly, following the heinous attack on Sandy Hook and the subsequent gun control push. However, that surge was well beneath the one that followed Democrats’ immediate attempts to use the Parkland school shooting for gun control.

Ironically, there was no surge of searches for “NRA membership” following the April 16, 2007, Virginia Tech shooting. Thirty-two innocents were killed in that horrific crime, but the Daily Wire opines that it did not lend itself to a gun control campaign because the attacker used handguns instead of an AR-15, AK-47, or similar rifle.

While handguns are far more prevalent for criminal use than AR-15s, AK-47s, or any other rifle, it should be noted that even knives are used in more homicides than “assault weapons.” FBI crime stats say that over four times as many people were stabbed to death in 2016 than were killed with rifles of any kind.

    That Teacher who “Refuses To Be Drafted by The NRA” doesn’t mind lying about the purpose of the NRA nor its history. The Left will stoop to any level to bolster their meme and train “Gun Grabbers!” Sad time in history that these students are being duped to create the demise of their own Liberty and Freedom!
