BOOM: NRA Political Group Donations Increases 200% After Parkland

Nonstop negative criticism from media and anti gun activists fueled bigger donations

to the NRA Political Victory Fund PAC. Here’s more from the Washington Free Beacon:

Donations to the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) political action committee more than tripled in February in comparison to its contributions from January, filings show.The donations increased as liberal activists, politicians, and celebrities have called for more gun control measures and singled out the NRA and Republican politicians who have received support from the group following the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 dead.The PAC raised a total of $779,063 in February and reported $247,985 in donations in January, an increase of more than 200 percent.

For the two-week period prior to the shooting—from Jan. 31 to Feb. 13—the NRA’s PAC received $27,100 from 51 itemized contributions, or large contributions from individuals in the amount of $200 or more. The names, dates, and amounts of the contributions from donors who give more than $200 are included in filings, allowing for a count of large contributors.

During the two-week period following the attack, itemized donations to the PAC jumped to $70,870 and came from 226 donors. The PAC finished February with $93,963.04 in itemized contributions.
