While I am concerned that their influence could balloon out of control, I also feel like they’ve reached the same type of political boogeyman status as Wall Street, socialists, and illegal immigrants to the point where invoking their name will almost always lead to hyperbole. It is interesting that despite this status their donations spike every time gun control renters the public discourse.

Yeah agree - they're an easy target for blanket statements.  "Oh, the NRA is so corrupt and only cares about money"...

Yeah, no shit...they're a fucking corporation.  Of course they have no soul and only care about the bottom line - just like every other corporation.

The NRA is the third-greatest institution in this country, after the ACLU and the National Parks.
