Money and gun control

Postby Niner » Fri Nov 17, 2017 11:14 am

The Guardian is a major online news source with a UK based liberal perspective. They are also, among other things, strong supporters of "gun laws". They don't seem to ever have seen a proposed restriction they didn't like. However, they now have an interesting piece giving their take on the NRA. And at the end of the piece is a request for money for their anti gun project. But the thing that is most telling about their article revolves around this.

So far this year, the NRA has spent $4.1m on lobbying – more than the $3.1m it spent in all of 2016. That’s real money, but for comparison, the dairy industry has spent $4.4m in the same period, according to the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). The National Association of Realtors, one of the biggest spenders, has paid out $32.2m lobbying on housing issues. The US Chamber of Commerce, the largest spender of all, has spent $104m.
