The truth is that gun violence in America, including school shootings, is down. It makes sense that, as such, the NRA might slow down. Then again, this is America, where little makes sense. The people drift stupidly towards socialism, which usually comes with gun control (then atrocity).
The influence of the National Rifle Association, the nation’s highest-profile Second Amendment-rights organization and a longtime powerhouse against gun-control laws, is showing signs of potential decline.
The NRA’s own tax forms show a dip in revenue. And even as the group, now under the leadership of new president Oliver North of Iran-Contra fame, continues to spend big money on federal lobbying and political campaigns, its opponents in the gun-control movement, after decades of ever more deadly mass shootings and seemingly random incidents of gun violence, have been on the rise.
Temporary trend or decline?
