Report: Google searches for 'NRA membership' up 4900 percent since Parkland shooting

The Daily Mail reports that since the shooting at Parkland High School and the ensuing gun debate Google searches for 'NRA membership' have skyrocketed over 4900%.

Special interest groups and various media outlets have targeted the National Rifle Association in the wake of the shooting because of their support of gun rights. They claim the NRA "controls" votes on capitol hill by fighting against proposals that could harm the second amendment.

According to Google trends searches for "NRA membership cost" and "How do I join the NRA" have also skyrocketed in the wake of the Parkland shooting.
