The NRA Foundation, Inc.
January 20, 2013

The NRA should lose their non profit status given the public advertising they have conducted in light of the recent gun slaughters. Their ads do not promote their 'core principles' of marksmanship and gun safety. Instead, they fight regulations that can only enhance law enforcement and safety of the principles they purport. In fact, the NRA written Tiahrt amendments specifically reduce local law enforcement from tracking and prosecuting criminals. The mass gun shootings in the news are not by criminals nor by folk with mental health records. These guns were owned by everyday folk who suffered a psychotic break. Yes, cars, knives, and baseball bats can kill - but they cannot kill 26 people in 2.5 minutes - and they are not specifically designed to kill people. A real hunter does not need a 30 clip to hunt. No one likes gunpowder flavored game.

National Rifle Assn (PAC)
Independent Expenditures: $10,765,834
NRA Institute for Legislative Action (501c)
Independent Expenditures: $7,448,013
National Rifle Assn (501c)
Communication Costs: $682,595

The NRA needs to breakout exactly how much money they spend on scholarships, Boy Scouts, etc. In the 2012 elections they reported $1.1M to candidates and $2.2M lobbying in 2012 and $2.9M in 2011. The lobbying and election monies were not to promote sportsmanship nor gun safety legislation. Therefore, no societal benefit to continue receiving tax exempt status.
