Follow the money..........<quoted text>
I would doubt it but anything in this crazy world is possible. To be more powerful than the political machine, the black market would have to be a factor and that goes against the responsible gun ownership the NRA supports and stands for.
NRA- annual budget 250 million dollars.
Money Spent to Influence Federal Elections
*•NRA + Pro Gun Groups =$53 million
•Brady + Gun Control Groups =$3 million
That equals this-
One out of four gun owners called their elected official.
One out of ten non gun owners called their elected officials on the issue of, extended back ground checks.
As for the black market..........
Fact: The Criminal market = 25% of the gun industry’s annual sales.*•The NRA fights to protect this market share.
They must defeat any law that would make it harder for criminals to get guns e.g. laws to stop gun trafficking, close the gun show loophole, etc.
“You need a gun with you at all times to protect you from armed criminals.”
