NRA Rapidly Losing Members And Money As Gun Sales Drop
The NRA is losing membership fees, and it’s running up huge deficits as a result. These grim findings, based on an audit obtained by OpenSecrets, raise doubts about the long-term prospects of the radical gun lobbying group.
“The document offers the first look at the NRA’s finances in the wake of the 2016 elections,” OpenSecrets reports. “It shows that for the last two years, the NRA saw plummeting income from dues-paying members, and that has, in turn, fueled growing deficits.”
Specifically, the NRA ran up a $14 million deficit in 2016, which then ballooned to $31 million in 2017. That’s a stunning reversal from 2015, when the NRA posted $27 million in positive assets.
