According to a new Rasmussen poll, 28 percent of Democrats said being a National Rifle Association member should be illegal.

The survey results of 1,000 likely voters released Monday also found that 32 percent of Democrats said the NRA should be declared a terrorist organization in the communities where they live.

San Francisco’s government last week unanimously voted to declare the NRA a terrorist organization, and the NRA sued San Francisco over the measure Monday.

What else did the poll find?

As for Republicans, 14 percent agree with deeming the NRA a terrorist organization, and 15 percent said being an NRA member should be illegal, the poll found.

Among all likely voters, 47 percent say NRA members are less likely to commit a gun crime while 13 percent of all voters — and only 17 percent of Democrats — said they’re more likely, the poll noted. In addition, 57 percent of all Americans say stricter enforcement of existing gun control laws is more important than creating new gun control laws, the poll found.

Most Americans with guns in their homes said they make them feel safer, the poll also found, and 70 percent agree that “it’s not the gun that pulls the trigger; it’s the person that pulls the trigger.”

The poll was conducted Sept. 5 and 8, Rasmussen said, adding that the margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.
