The NRA

In Senate testimony Wednesday, the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre drew a hard line against expanding background checks for gun purchases, a position new polls show may go against the views of most members of his own organization … 74% of NRA members supported requiring a background check system for all gun sales, according to a poll released Monday by Johns Hopkins University’s Bloomberg School of Public Health. The survey found 89% of all Americans support the proposal. (The Johns Hopkins program has received financial support, and is named after, New York City mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg.) These numbers corroborate a New York Times/CBS News poll this month that found an 85% majority of people in households with an NRA member supporting universal background checks.
