Americans Rally to NRA, Shatter 15 Year Fundraising Record

The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund raised $2.4 million in March, marking its largest single month haul in at least 15 years.

The record fundraising total came during the first full month following the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, in February.

McClatchy reported that the tally was $1.6 million more than the NRA raised during the month of February and $1.5 million more than the group took in during March 2017.

The news service noted that most of the donations during March of this year — $1.9 million of the $2.4 million — came from small donations of $200 or less.

The immediate aftermath of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School saw a push for new gun control measures, both at the national and state level.

Some states passed new laws in a matter of weeks — including Florida, Illinois, Oregon, Vermont — while others continue to consider legislation. The most common change has been raising the age to purchase so-called assault weapons from 18 to 21.

The banning of “bump stocks,” which effectively turns a semi-automatic weapon to fully automatic, has been another active area for legislation.

President Donald Trump announced last month a new federal regulation banning the devices.
