quote: Let's do the math:
"But they get their money from small donations from their four million members!", you say. Some, sure... but we know that in the past seven years they've received tens of millions of dollars from 22 separate gun manufacturers.
4 million members x $35/yr = $140 million in yearly dues.
Your "some sure, but...tens of millions" goes right out the window! Back to the mission statement:
Established in 1990, the NRA Foundation, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that raises tax-deductible contributions in support of a wide range of firearms-related public interest activities of the National Rifle Association of America and other organizations that defend and foster the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans. These activities are designed to promote firearms and hunting safety, to enhance marksmanship skills of those participating in the shooting sports, and to educate the general public about firearms in their historic, technological and artistic context.
NRA sponsored programs offered nationally:
1. Competitions and matches
including collegiate and olympic events
2. Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Programs
which teach gun safety to children
3. Firearms Training
for novices, advanced, and police
4. Women's Programs
for general safety, crime prevention, and self defense
5. Law Enforcement Services
including the aforementioned competitions and training, as well as scholarships for the children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.
There are many more but I think I've effectively blown your pathetic lies out of the water and made you look like more of a troll than you so effectively do for yourself.
