    Some personal news: Just shy of my 10-year anniversary, me and several colleagues had their positions terminated this morning So, if you have or know of any jobs available in the DC-area, or any that can be done remotely, please let me know

    Which means exactly what?

    2011 - $219 million
    2012 - $256 million (presidential elections)
    2013 - $347 million
    2014 - $310 million
    2015 - $336 million
    2016 - $366 million (presidential elections)
    2017 - $312 million

    Membership - 2013 = 5 million, 2017 = 6 million

    Beyond the basic $35 annual membership, contributions can vary wildly for the NRA depending on many factors: boogymen, special one time gifts, major national legislation, etc, etc. Don't take an article at face value - especially from NPR or other leftist sources. Anything can be written with a twist to drive an agenda. Do your own search and check their annual Form 990 tax returns. They're all publicly available. I use this one:

    Publicly owned gun manufacturer stock prices aren't tied to NRA revenue changes. Their stock prices (and sales) are determined by current and perceived future market conditions, whose sitting in the White House, etc. This article is making a big to-do about a blip to a couple of manufacturers' share prices and correlating it to a drop in the NRA's prior year revenues. The NRA could disappear and gun manufacturers would keep on trucking.
