Chicago Tribune Columnist All Wet About NRA Support

posted on January 12, 2016

Appearing on Friday evening’s “The McLaughlin Group,” liberal Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page said the reason the NRA has such higher approval ratings than President Obama—58 percent versus 46 percent—is because “a large percentage of people don’t know much about the NRA.”

With a very large percentage of so-called “mainstream” media reports decidedly negative toward the NRA—constantly and derogatorily called the “gun lobby” by many opponents—it seems to us that just the opposite is clear. Fed a steady diet of negativity toward the organization, the fact that Americans give NRA such high marks more likely means supporters aren’t ignorant, but that they have a good understanding of the Association and it’s effectiveness in fighting for the Second Amendment.
