HOW’S THAT DEMOGRAPHIC WORKING FOR OUT FOR YOU, La PIERRE? April 17, 2015 by NGVAC

“The NRA in the last 20-plus years has fed its followers a steady stream of angry, defensive, apocalyptic rhetoric about the government, about gun laws, about Democrats, about liberals,” says Vice, with dwindling success. “Most gun owners are white people over age 50 who primarily live in the South, Midwest, and rural areas—a shrinking group that the GOP is desperately trying to look beyond as it tries to broaden its appeal in 2016.”

At the recent NRA convention, an attendee verified the demographic problem. “Look around you–what do you notice?” she said to a reporter. “It’s very white isn’t it? And very old. Where are the young people? Where the Asians? Where are the Latinos? If this is the audience of the Republican Party we’re not going to win.”
