NRA members highly likely to face discrimination in academia: Study

Membership in the National Rifle Association, one of the nation’s premier civil rights groups, is very likely to hurt one’s chances at getting a job in academia, a new study has found.

The study, by University of North Texas Professor George Yancey, found that, among a large variety of organizations and socio-political demographics, NRA membership topped the list as the most likely to cost one a chance at a job, PJ Media reports.

“Political groups listed in the survey included Communist, Libertarian, Green Party, Republican, NRA, ACLU, and Democrat,” according to PJ Media; also included in the study were “groups such as vegetarians and single-parents.”

“Of all political affiliations, NRA membership was ranked as the most likely to hurt an aspiring professor’s chance of getting hired, with 41.2 percent conceding that it would ‘damage’ an applicant’s chance of getting hired,” the study found:

NRA members fared even worse than Republicans. Only 28.7 percent of professors indicated that Republican party membership would damage a candidate’s chance of being hired, according to Yancey’s research.
