The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) has witnessed a 1,200% surge in 18-year-old to 20-year-old members in the weeks since the firearm-based attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
He observed, “It’s important to note, that this interest surge has been organic on the Internet.
Gottlieb pointed out that the surge in 18-to-20-year old members is an encouraging sign amid the establishment media’s focus on high school students marching for more gun laws.
He said, “While the media has paraded high school students to push a gun control agenda, the age group that is now being targeted by that effort is energizing, and showing that there is another side to this controversy.”
