That's the 'rational wing' of the NRA; Responsible, safety-concerned gun-owners.
74% of them agree with making harder for guns to get into the hands of criminals, etc.
(that's 3 out of 4 -- NRA members agree. While 9 out of 10 of ALL Americans agree.)

A December 17-18, 2012 CNN poll, conducted in a similar time frame to the Gallup poll, found that 62 percent of Americans favored an assault weapons ban. A PPP poll conducted between December 18-19, 2012 reached an almost identical result, finding 63 percent in favor of an assault weapons ban. CNN polls conducted in August 2012 and January 2011 also both found majority support for an assault weapons ban. A June 2011 Time magazine poll similarly found 62 percent of Americans supportive of an assault weapons ban.

A Quinnipiac University found that 95 percent of likely Pennsylvania voters would support a federal requirement for universal background checks for all gun buyers.
That's just a few points higher than the national average of 89 percent found by Dr. Colleen Barry and colleagues at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
"It's worth noting," Barry says, "gun owners, and even gun owners that are NRA members, we find at the national level 74 percent of NRA members support the universal background check."
As Joe Scarborough said about it this morning, roughly put:
It seems the only Americans not in favor of stronger Background Checks, are Wayne LaPierre and the 'survivalist wing' of the NRA.
The rest of Americans would rather 'survive' through the use of more common sense gun registration laws, and the more complete enforcement of them.
