But in response to complaints by the NRA bosses who don’t want to tell the public where their money comes from, the 53 Democrats who receive money from the NRA apparently insisted the bill be changed. This led to a “compromise” that exempts groups with more than a million members; and that raised 15 percent or less funding from corporations; that have members in all 50 states; and that have been around at least 10 years.
So you’re suggesting NRA doesn’t want to tell the public where their money comes from, even though the exemption tells you where. NRA is raising most of it’s money from its 4 million members in increments of 20 and 30 dollars. I’m glad when our opponents make mistakes. Why include the terms of the exemption? It basically just tells the world they’ve been lying to the public about the nature of the “gun lobby” for years — that it was a tool of the gun makers rather than a real grassroots organization.
