The other day Mr. James Anderson had a letter about the NRA having only spent $3.5 million in the past 10 years.  

I must take exception to this as the NRA gave $30 million to the Trump campaign during the last election. Since 1998, they have given over $200 million to try and influence candidates to support their goals. John McCain received more than $7.7 million and two other senators got $6.9 million and $6.7 million each.

The NRA has degraded itself into a huge lobbying firm that pours vast sums of money into trying to influence Congress to deregulate gun ownership. What was once an admirable organization supporting responsible gun ownership and use has turned into a purely political one.
