I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the NRA, nor do I ever plan to be one.
I do agree with the fact that the NRA has the right to do whatever they do with the money as long as the members of the organization are willing to support it, which apparently, they do. I would also agree that George Soros, Michael Bloomberg and the Koch brothers are free to spend their money any damn way they please. Because certain agendas may or may not agree with what they are promoting, has no bearing on their right to do it.http://www.factcheck.org/...-salaries/
What I found interesting in this was..
Most of the NRA funding still comes from it's members.
Additional funding comes from voluntary
contributions by gun purchasers at the point of sale.
The NRA spends most of the money on education, safety training and support of all legal shooting activities.
That the big increase in funding for the NRA-ILA (lobbying and litigation arm) started in 1992 when Bill Clinton and the Democrats kicked off the ridiculous war on "assault" weapons. The 1994 AWB turned out to be the biggest gun manufacturer and lawyer\lobbyist relief act ever passed by Congress, prior to the ACA.
Looks to me like the major cause for gun proliferation in this Country is Democrats.
