Do you believe that a majority of NRA members are not the enemy? [View all]

Last edited Sat Aug 3, 2019, 11:24 PM - Edit history (1)

It's been mentioned in this campaign that they are not and this has been discussed on Twitter and in a few threads here at DU. I myself believe that statement to be wrong and I posted supporting evidence of why I think so in the following OP:


Based on the the comments I've read here at DU over the years, there are examples of such in this OP, I'd say that only a very small fraction of DUers believe that the majority of NRA members are not the enemy. However, that attitude could have changed recently and maybe this poll will shed on light on a possible shift.
