Donations to NRA PAC tripled after Florida shooting

stop the nra

Backfire…


A more accurate headline: Donations to NRA tripled after #GunControlNow crowd goes after NRA. Great job kids!
From NY Post: Contributions to the National Rifle Association’s political action committee tripled in February amid public attacks against the organization following the Feb. 14 high school shooting in Parkland, Fla.
Supporters of the Second Amendment donated about $779,000 in February to the NRA’s political arm, the Political Victory Fund, according to recent Federal Election Commission (FEC) data.
The figure marked a more than threefold increase compared to January, when the PAC received nearly $250,000 in donations, and was the fund’s second-best month over the last year.
The NRA has come under fire from gun control activists, who have criticized the group in the wake of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead.
Last weekend, thousands of people rallied in support of gun control during the “March for Our Lives” protest, with many placards openly attacking the NRA. The increasing onslaught against the organization, however, correlated with more donations going to the group’s PAC.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, two weeks before the fatal school shooting, the NRA’s PAC received $27,100 from itemized contributions — donations that exceed $200 — from 51 donors. Over the next two weeks after the shooting, the itemized contributions skyrocketed to nearly $71,000 from 226 donors.
Most donations to the group — totaling $685,099 — came in small donations that did not exceed $200.
Multiple politicians are facing the fury of anti-gun activists who criticize them for accepting the NRA’s support and donations. US Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is among the primary targets due to the NRA’s support of him, which totals more than $3 million, although actual donations to his campaigns since 2010 totaled only nearly $15,000.
The Political Victory Fund’s donations to individual lawmakers are limited due to election laws that limit contributions to $10,000 per election cycle.

This is funny particularly since the Hillary Clinton campaign overspent Trump by 4:1. Hillary Clinton may have been the best opponent the Republicans had since George McGovern. She beat herself with the projection comment, “deplorable”. It seem if you have Kuru disease that is deplorable. When you have MK Ultra and Operation Mockingbird working for you and you lose it make you look very deplorable.

For all the thousands of fools who were there to protest the N.R.A., there are tens of millions of true U.S. Citizens who stayed at home in support of the N.R. A., and will stand in defense of our second amendment.

Reblogged this on necltr and commented: Why isn’t there anger over the failure of Sheriff Israel and others to easily disarm Cruz? I believe Broward County has an immense police force and budget. Could this have happened in Dade County? Israel’s deputies were ordered to stand back and to allow a shooter or shooters to take student lives. Was it in any way to work towards Globalism with a step to remove our Second Amendment, and, was that objective worth the loss of seventeen lives – there could have been more were it not for the rescue by officers not… Read more »

DCG . . . . I am going to go a little off track here . . . although I am thrilled that the nonsense down in Parkland has caused that “Sleeping Giant,” which is America to wake up to our awful sense of doom if the Progressives have their way. Two nights ago I was looking at various clips on YouTube. The first one I came across was of CBS interviewing David Hogg, in the interview he stated, “I heard the gunshots, I live three miles from the school, I jumped on my bike and road as far as… Read more »

I know it sounds cold, but to me it makes no difference. It is a fraud. Whether anyone is injured, killed, or not is not what makes these “real”. Real means “naturally occurring”. I don’t spend a lot of time usually on that aspect of these things. I absolutely believe that it makes no difference to the producers whether they kill people or not. I think they do whatever they think is most advantageous to their goal. I further don’t think they care if its one or a thousand. The only reason I ever bring it up is as to… Read more »

More interesting information coming out. Seems that quite a few knew it was a drill. Wow, what a coincidence!

More and more it is coming out that David Hogg is a Constitution trashing freedom hater. The Second Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed” I gave up a piece of my life and some body parts defending the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Other than trashing the Second Amendment, what has David Hogg done for America? Nothing!
